Presenting TV Club's fall schedule: For when only covering the "good" shows just isn't enough!

Well, folks, another summer has drawn to a close, and that means it's time for us here at TV Club to announce the myriad television programs we'll be taking a look at in the weeks to come. Where, in the past, we tried to present to you a gamut of programs that mostly promised that mythical "quality," this year, we just decided, fuck it, we're going to cover every show on television. (Or pretty close, at least.) Some shows, we genuinely like. Some shows, we think could get better with a little time and elbow grease. And some shows, we just can't wait to make fun of. So settle in and plan out what you're going to be watching with us. You could say you're going to get more exercise or read more books or whatever, but you know you'll be inside watching TV with us. Get comfortable. (For even more fall TV debuts, the Futon Critic's grid is always helpful.)

All times are Eastern. New shows (or shows new to TV Club) are bolded. As always, we'll be covering all new shows' debuts, so if you don't see something listed here, we'll cover at least the first episode. And if there's enough popular demand, we might very well bring it onboard the regular coverage rotation.
