US Network television fall premiere season starts on Monday (9/23/19), just wanted to make a general planning post (and a heads-up for the impending slew of threads on pilots of dubious quality). Various tv-sites' premiere calendars linked below. [more inside]
Dynasty: I hardly recognized you Season 1, Ep 1
An heiress, her father, and his new fiance plot and scheme at work and at home. Everyone has something to hide, but they're ready to flaunt their wealth and oil barony.
Since the 2017 network Fall premiere season has begun, I thought it might be worthwhile to have a general thread. Any new shows you want to call dibs on posting threads for? Any shows you posted for last season that you want someone else to take over? Here's the TV Guide list of new shows and premiere calendar.

Rebranding -- "You'll discover that not all well-dressed, articulate, detail-oriented men are gay. Many of them are just...

I like watching a swath of new pilots each fall and then attempting to judge which of them will develop into watchable shows. Would anyone else like to have a "New Show" club to watch a number of these (whether we stick with the shows or not)? [more inside]
