New to Fall TV

Fall is an exciting season for television. Networks like NBC, ABC and CBS bring favorites and originals to TV.

We see anticipated shows like This is Us (NBC) and Grey’s Anatomy (ABC) return, along with Modern Family (ABC) and Young Sheldon (CBS).

This season also brings re-boots like Charmed and Magnum P.I., along with doctor shows, sitcoms and cop shows.

Here is a list of Fall shows new to the 2018 season:

Magnum P.I. (CBS)

This CBS reboot brings to life one of the most entertaining shows of the 80’s. Jay Hernandez stars as the handsome (but mustache-less) Thomas Magnum as he drives around his classic red Ferrari with best pals Rick and TC. Though similar to the original, the new plot focuses more on Magnum’s military background and past. This “Magnum P.I.” reboot sits well for CBS, and with the promised “Hawaii Five-0” crossovers, it will do well.

Watch: 9 p.m. on CBS

Manifest (NBC)

“Manifest” has been met with buzz since it’s preview during the San Diego Comic-Con in July. This story involves an airplane of passengers headed to New York from Jamaica, which after some brief yet intense turbulence, lands unharmed. When the passengers eventually step off, they learn their plane has been missing for more than five years. The story centers around the Stone family, returning from a vacation. Josh Dallas plays as the father of a young son with cancer on the flight. “Manifest” has been compared to the old ABC series “Lost,” but it seems to have much more of a “Twilight Zone” feel.

Watch: 10 p.m. on NBC

New Amsterdam (NBC)

Yet another hospital drama (we’ve already got “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “The Good Doctor,” to name a few,) “New Amsterdam” brings something a bit different. Ryan Eggold stars as Dr. Max Godwin, a new medical director at New York’s New Amsterdam Hospital. This fictional hospital is known as the nation’s oldest and best public hospital, with a mission to serve the poor along with the rich. Though Godwin is a doctor without a crippling ego, he is one with a compelling personal story. It will be interesting to see how this one does with views in contrast to the other doctor dramas out there.

Watch: 10 p.m. on NBC

Single Parents (ABC)

Taran Killam leads this silly and entertaining comedy about a group of single parents who have each other’s backs. Killam plays a newly single father with strict parenting tactics who needs to chill. This will be a fun comedic take on single parenting.

Watch: 9:30 p.m. on ABC

A Million Little Things (ABC)

This new drama follows the story of four Boston men and has a great cast: Ron Livingston, James Roday, Romany Malc, and David Giuntoli. The story follows the friends as they battle their own issues: suicide, depression, cancer, and affairs. With the death of a friend comes reflection, perspective, and vows to know each other better. SImilar to “This Is Us,” this show is determined to bring you to tears.

Watch: 10 p.m. on ABC

Rookie (ABC)

This cop drama stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan, a struggling and depressed middle-aged divorcee. After an act of bravery during a random bank robbery, he joins the LAPD as a rookie cop. We get to know Nolan and two other rookies as they navigate the dangerous streets of Los Angeles, however, Nolan must also deal with an openly hostile boss who tells him on Day 1 that he’s too old for the job and that nobody wants him there. One unique aspect of the show is the bodycam footage that is routinely used for the storytelling.

Watch: 10 p.m. on ABC
