The usually snoozy summer-television season ended on a few high notes with Mr. Robot, unREAL, and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and now we can look forward to the real heavyweights. We've got the promising newbies (The Bastard Executioner, Scream Queens ... Blood & Oil?) battling it out with the established veterans (Bones, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory), plus beloved classics with a new look (The Mindy Project resurrected on Hulu, The Daily Show's new host). But when will they all begin? (Rather, for when must the DVR be programmed?) We're one step ahead of you — we've gathered all the fall premiere dates in this convenient location, which we'll be updating throughout the coming weeks. Happy watching!
