Fall TV 2011: Super Schedule

by | August 21, 2011 at 11:27 AM | Fall TV Preview 2011

It’s that time of year – time to say goodbye summer and hello to LL Cool J, Rainn Wilson, Derek Hough, Ted Danson, Whitney Cummings, and Zooey Deschanel. Yep, fall TV is here. In fact, as we see it, the only upside to the waning days of beach weekends and backyard BBQs is the return of “NCIS,” “Modern Family,” “Fringe,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Parks and Recreation,” and other prime time favorites that went on vacation with us, plus a bevy of new series.

This year there are 34 brand new TV series vying for attention, and ratings, as well as 24 returning series that we really care about. (You may have your own number.) No matter how it’s sliced, the schedule is, as you can see below, full, challenging, and jam-packed on a few key days, like September 19, 20, 21, 22 23 and 25 – days teeming with so many premieres that you may feel of twinge of anxiety as you ask yourself, “How am I going to see all of these shows?”

Well, fear not. Your Xfinity TV subscription provides plenty of tools and options that ensure you’ll never miss any of your shows, starting with this comprehensive schedule. Click any link and go straight to the show on xfinityTV.com, where you will find available full-length episodes from the past season to help you catch-up and get excited for the new season. You’ll also see a red “Record Series” button. Click it and set your DVR to record every episode. Also, remember XFINITY On Demand features series from all four major networks; it’s your #1 catch-up tool, as well as xfinityTV.com, where you can stream favorites instantly – and free.
