The TVLine-Up: What's New, Returning and Leaving the Week of Sept. 15

Criminal Tennant Atwell

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings.

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable, streaming and whatever “BitMovio” is, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to set your DVR, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.

This week, you’ll find 21 premieres (including American Horror Story, Dancing With the Stars and new late-nighter A Little Late With Lilly Singh), 11 finales (including America’s Got Talent, Bachelor in Paradise and the last-ever Killjoys) and so much more.
