By David Knox on September 15, 2013 / Filed Under News, Top Stories 32

2013-09-15_0151We are now just days away from the first of the new Fall shows entering Australian schedules.

Sleepy Hollow begins on TEN on Tuesday night. Then a smorgasboard of new and returning shows kicks off in the US.

Here are the dates of shows that are likely to interest Aussie viewers, including some finales.

Adjusting for the dateline, remember that a primetime US show is generally played out early arvo the following day, Australian time. ie. Bones on Monday 16 = Tuesday 17 in Australia.

    Yes 900 characters per Comment, thanks. Aussie programming is a law unto itself.

    Ha ha see that? Even I got cut off. If I were an advertiser, I would be highly annoyed when viewership dros off.

    TAR in October is hardly fast tracked. Downton Abbey will be six months and I’ll have watched by then. I am an American living in Australia for three years and I still haven’t become used to network programming here. Some shows are hardly promoted and just start one day. Some shows move time and days throughout the season making them hard to keep up with and some shows start at weird times because the show above it ran over (creating chaos for my DVR and annoying me when it cuts off crucial endings). Some promos state “Coming Soon” and then don’t tell you the day until you are right up on it. Some shows just disappear (aka Burn Notice). Its weird and it appears even Australians are frustrated by it. Hs it always been like this? It is a guessing game that i can’t figure out. I hope everyone goes online and drops these networks. If I was an advertiser, I would be highly annoyed when…

    Hi so is foxtel going to air Ravenswood and the originals if so do you know when? Also do you know when America horror story season three will be aired and will it be still on eleven and fx? Thanks

    dcbowater they didnt dump POI mid season they were all up to date they didn’t show the season finale

  6. Nettorqy September 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm -

    No TVluva in fact Fall is English not American it was the correct term used by the English until the late 18th century when the upper class in England started using the French word Automne to sound better than the lower class.

  7. dcbowater September 16, 2013 at 2:50 pm -

    We are still waiting for the end of the last season of POI. Any news on this David? Dumping this mid-season is such poor form.

  8. Charlie Miso September 16, 2013 at 10:50 am -

    I have no facts to back this up, but get the feeling that it’s the kiss of death for a new show when it gets fast tracked here.

    Last Resort anyone?

  9. stratcat September 16, 2013 at 8:59 am -

    jmanwf – it looks like Ch9 are looking to fasttrack Arrow – the double episodes they’ve been doing should put season 1 right on schedule to conclude just in time for season 2.

  10. Kylie September 15, 2013 at 11:53 pm -

    @Nate – Thanks so much for the info! Will keep a look out later in the year :)

  11. jtshadow65 September 15, 2013 at 11:08 pm -

    yer but David thats because a) there is not a lot of american programming on the fta networks b) there on the wrong time & on the wrong day c) US programs here in Australia do out rate most aussie shows at times when there is new eps of big us shows that are put on the right time & right day

  12. David Knox September 15, 2013 at 10:29 pm -

    JTShadow: Just proves how everything is subjective. Aussie shows also rate better than US.

  13. Nate September 15, 2013 at 10:25 pm -

    @daviec4u & Kylie: The Following is a mid-season show so it won’t return until January. US networks don’t release their winter schedules this far out so the exact premiere date won’t be known until late November.

    For Kylie, Hannibal is another mid-season show, but unlike Following it was a very late pick-up due to its ratings, which may factor into whether NBC holds it back. In general, they roll out mid-season shows they’re most confident in for in Jan & Feb and the remainder much closer to the end of their season – so it may not get a spot before March/April again. More will be known when they announce winter/spring schedules in late November.

  14. jtshadow65 September 15, 2013 at 10:21 pm -

    Australian free to air networks need to get more US shows instead of making crappy Australian reality shows the only great Aussie show is probably wonderland also free to air networks needs to stop letting great shows go to foxtel

  15. David Knox September 15, 2013 at 8:11 pm -

    The Blacklist coming to Mondays on Seven, which is a 6 day turnaround. Likely to go head to head with Homeland.

  16. Greg7 September 15, 2013 at 7:31 pm -

    Hostages is like Lost, in that it has a premise that will only be interesting for 1 season, or that’d work as only a miniseries.

    The only way it could work for multiple seasons, is by going with a totally new hostage story and totally new characters and actors, in each season, but I can’t see how that’ll compel viewers to keep with it.

  17. universe93 September 15, 2013 at 6:53 pm -

    Max as Ravenswood is a spinoff of Pretty Little Liars I’m assuming it will go to FOX8. PLL is such a hit in the US and yet for some reason we only got 10 episodes shown on a digital channel and then it was shafted. Such bull.

  18. Kylie September 15, 2013 at 6:48 pm -

    Any word on Hannibal and The Following new seasons?

  19. David Knox September 15, 2013 at 6:31 pm -

    TVLuva: Headline indicates “US TV Fall season.” Last I looked outside my window it was Spring here.

  20. ryan September 15, 2013 at 6:14 pm -

    ten is mad not to fast track everything it can!

  21. TVluva September 15, 2013 at 5:48 pm -

    I didnt realise we are now more an extension of America, we call it Fall here now also? Just to sit well with the “Upfronts” ?

  22. max September 15, 2013 at 4:10 pm -

    What Australian channel has Ravenswood? I can’t wait for The Walking Dead, American Dad, How I Met Your Mother and The Blacklist.

  23. maxxdude September 15, 2013 at 4:07 pm -

    If Nine can fast track Survivor on Go! then surely Seven can do the same with The Amazing Race. I am sick of watching TAR knowing already who has won.

  24. Kirk September 15, 2013 at 3:46 pm -

    Any word whether GO! will air new episodes of The Middle fast-tracked?

  25. jmanwf September 15, 2013 at 1:12 pm -

    any news if Channel 9 will fast track Arrow season 2 i know in season 1 they delayed it by months it is a joke

  26. daviec4u September 15, 2013 at 12:56 pm -

    Hi David any news on The Following.SO2!

  27. Craig September 15, 2013 at 12:36 pm -

    Sleepy Hollow – has been promoted by TEN quite a bit, I’ve seen the promos and ‘sneak peek’ a number of times.

    I’m hanging out for Parenthood, just hope Seven doesn’t delay it too much as they have a full 22 eps this season.

    I’m guessing Nine will fast track TBBT again but it will be interesting to see just how many shows get fast tracked on FTA, Foxtel has been promoting all it’s fast tracking shows.

  28. Loz September 15, 2013 at 10:51 am -

    @carolmorrissey…. Last man standing is back in a couple of weeks, forget which date…. Dunno about New Girl, just know we are very far behind… don’t think we have seen all of season 2.

  29. aaron1004 September 15, 2013 at 9:30 am -

    The Amazing Race will return in October.

  30. David Knox September 15, 2013 at 9:15 am -

    I wrote about TAR in the fast-tracking feast article.

  31. tomothyd September 15, 2013 at 9:02 am -

    I had no idea that Sleepy Hollow was starting on Tuesday here until I saw it in the EPG, then on here. I have not seen one promo for it on Ten, Eleven or One.

  32. carolemorrissey September 15, 2013 at 7:32 am -

    There’s still been no word on whether 7 or 7Mate is fast tracking The Amazing Race.

    What has happened to Last Man Standing? We haven’t seen that show for ages here. Same with New Girl, they both just disappeared.

    Hope we get some of those shows fast tracked, but won’t hold my breath.
