Fall 2016 Tv: Shows I’m Currently Watching

I always look forward to Fall tv. I love being able to watch shows that I am already addicted to but I also enjoy adding new shows to my list to watch. There are so many great shows on this Fall. I loved the format of Neely’s post for her Fall shows, so I decided to use the same one. Here are the shows I am currently addicted to watching.

Fall 2016 Tv Shows I'm Currently Watching

New Shows:

  • American Housewife: I absolutely love Katie. She is not your typical mom (like all the other moms on the show). She speaks her mind and knows that she and her family are far from perfect. She shares the not so great side of what it’s like to be a busy mom with three kids. If I were to become a mom, I could see a little bit of Katie in me.
  • Designated Survivor: I’ve only watched one episode of this so far and it sucked me in. When an attack takes several lives of the current president and several other cabinet members, Tom Kirkman finds himself as the new president. I know there are going to be a lot of surprises in this show. I can’t wait to see who is responsible for the attack. Another reason why I love this show is because Italia Ricci is in it. She previously played on Chasing Life.
  • This Is Us: One of my favorite Fall shows so far. It’s such a beautiful show about family. It’s raw and tugs at your heart strings. It tells the story of Rebecca, Jack and their three kids: Kevin, Kate & Randall.

Returning Shows:

  • Quantico: I became addicted to watching this show last season and the season finale threw me completely off. It keeps you guessing and you never know who just might be the bad guy.
  • How To Get Away With Murder: Shonda Rhimes does not disappoint that is for sure. This season is more crazy than ever. She always throws curve balls in every episode.
  • The Voice: I love being able to watch people sing and make their dreams come true. Of course I love Blake and Adams brotherly banter with each other as well.
  • Empire: The Lyon family is a crazy family to say the least. From their fights that put them against each other to them coming together as needed. I absolutely love Cookie Lyon. She is my spirit animal. If I could say everything that was on my mind (which I normally do) it would be similar to what Cookie has to say.
  • Jane The Virgin: I love seeing what is going to happen in Jane’s love life. Will she choose Michael or Rafael? What crazy things will happen in her life while juggling love, school, family, etc.

Shows I want to watch:

  • Secrets and Lies: I have caught previews of this show and it looks really interesting. It has a really great cast. So I need to get caught up on it.
  • Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life: I was so addicted to watching Lorelai & Rory back in the day. So I can not wait to see what has happened in their lives since the show went off the air.

So as you can see, I am a tv addict. What shows are you currently watching this Fall?

  3. Girl! We are TV spirit animals!!! I watch all of these! Although I watched last season of Secrets and Lies and it was terrible until the last episode and now it’s all new characters, and I just can’t bring myself to try it again (I am recording them all, but I just don’t see myself watching it until I get through all my other shows). I am currently also re-watching all the old GG to prep for 11/25!!!

      Rachel that is awesome!! I really want to watch Secrets and Lies. That stinks that it was not that great last season. I have so many shows to watch. I will have to see about recording Secret and Lies and then watching it. I can’t wait for GG to come back on!

      Adriana I am so addicted to watching This Is Us. It’s so real and shows that it’s okay to not be a perfect family/person. I need to binge watch GG girls again.

  9. I’ve been watching This Is Us, and while I don’t love it as much as everyone does, I am really enjoying it. More than I thought I would actually! I’ve also been watching Timeless, because of Goran Visnjic, and I love that one too. šŸ™‚

    I haven’t had a lot of time to watch lately so I need to figure out what I’ve been missing out on.

  11. Girl, American Housewife is my favorite show on tv right now. I feel like I am Katie, only with one child. I can’t tell you how much I laugh at this show because I can so relate.

    I feel like i’m the only one who hasn’t gotten on board with This Is Us but I’ve heard it’s a huge tear fest. I’m not sure I can handle that.

    And can I confess that I’ve never seen one episode of Gilmore Girls?!?

    I’m completely hooked on Designated Survivor and This Is Us! I love them both so much. I counted down all summer for the premiere of This Is Us because it reminded me of Parenthood (another one of my all-time favorite shows). So I was very happy that I loved the premiere as much as I had hoped. One of my blog readers got me hooked on Designated Survivor. She recommended it one day so I decided to check it out and couldn’t stop watching. SO good!

    Great post! I am a couple episodes behind on This is Us – downside of not having cable and having to stream everything – but I love it! Have you watched Parenthood? All of the episodes are on netflix and its by the same people. I think you’d love it. Just bring some tissues.
    I am one episode behind on Quantico. Such a good show! It’s like How to Get Away with Murder and Criminal Minds COMBINED! Genius!
    I haven’t started this season of HTGAWM but I will. šŸ™‚ I, honestly, forgot it was back on.
    I just recently started re-watching all of Gilmore Girls. It is probably my second favorite show.

    Love this list!
    Happy watching! xoxo Lauren @ Glitter & Grandeur

      Thank You Lauren! I am so addicted to This Is Us. I have never watched Parenthood but I heard it’s a great show. I may have to watch it soon once I get caught up on all my other shows. Quanitco keeps you guessing!! I wonder who is behind the terrorist group this season. Other then one of the head people. This season on HTGAWM has been crazy! Things have occurred that I would have never thought of. I need to finish re-watching GG. I can’t wait for the new show to come on!

    We usually watching reality shows such as Ink Master, Cutthroat Kitchen, Master Chef, etc. We watch Brooklyn Nine Nine, and it’s the funniest show ever! It’s in season four and comes on on Tuesdays!

This Is Us is such a great show! A lot of people said it’s similar to Parenthood. It is not yet on Netflix because it is a new show that just started. Hopefully it will be on Netflix soon. šŸ™‚

    I’d love to see “This is Us” it looks so awesome! But I’m vowing to not watch anything that will be emotionally charging lol…I have too many emotional things going on in life right now to be drawn into a tv show. So I’m sticking with comedy and maybe a few dramas. I’m loving the continuation of “The Blind Spot”.
