Scream Queens Tuesday, Sept. 22, 9 p.m. ET, Fox
Scream Queens has it all. Kitschy horror, black humor, and a wardrobe to die for. The premise is this: a (typically) blonde sorority girl is being stalked by a murderer ravaging their college campus. What ensues is a little scary, a little silly, and lot of fun. Emma Roberts (niece of Julia) is the perfect amount of snark and edge mixed with classic good looks.
Blood and Oil Sunday, Sept 27, 9 p.m. ET, ABC
A young couple set out to embark on a new life, in hopes of striking it rich in North Dakota after the discovery of a whole lot of oil. A modern version of the Gold Rush, this one doesn’t miss in mixing soapy drama and complex characters. What do you think happens when middle Americans compete for a fortune? Plus, the scenery is cool.
Supergirl Monday, Oct. 26, 8 p.m. ET, CBS
Because, frankly, there are not enough female superheroes on TV. Superman’s cousin shares the same basic plot line, and we’re happy to see a kick-ass chick rock her superpowers to save the world.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Monday, Oct. 19, 8 p.m. ET, CW
Ok, it kind of reinforces a negative female stereotype, but it’s a fun show, nonetheless so we’re excited about this quirky comedy. It’s not like anything we’ve seen before and it captures some real issues surrounding being thirty something and single. Pressured to find her true happiness, Rachel Bloom abandons her partnership at a prestigious law firm to follow an ex-boyfriend to a small California town. When she gets there and realizes there is no beach in sight…well, the show makes a left to turn into full song and dance about her inability to sunbathe.
The Muppets September 22, ABC
Yes, the Muppets! A reboot features none other than Miss Piggy and Kermit and…spoiler alert…they are splitsville. What ensues is a lot of silly romantic tension between the two. We’re not quite how to manage a whole season out of this plot line, but we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy this one with the whole family.
Blindspot Monday, Sept. 21, 10 p.m. ET, NBC
Yay for another strong female lead! Blindspot features what feels like a female Jason Bourne who wakes up in a duffle bag in the middle of Times Square. She has no memory but does have a whole lot of tattoos that apparently need to be deciphered. Turns out, they are linked to crimes happening as we speak. Who is she? She’s not sure. Sound suspenseful? It is. It follows a similar formula as the Blacklist and it’s a definite keeper.
