5 Shows To Add To Your Fall TV Watch List

5 Shows To Add To Your Fall TV Watch List | Why Hello Lovely

Guys, I haven’t had cable in over a year now. I really thought I wouldn’t miss it, but I did. A lot. Now that we are settling into our new home and have both internet and cable, I can catch up on my favorite shows and check out some new ones that are premiering this season. I finally feel like I’m up to speed with the rest of the world! Here are five tv shows I’m dying to watch this fall that you should check out too.


I am a huge fan of American Horror Story. The only season I wasn’t a fan of was Freak Show, but the rest got me hooked right from the first episode. If you haven’t seen AHS, then basically it’s not your typically tv series. It’s generally the same cast each season, but there’s a whole new storyline. Every character has a new role so it’s almost like watching a whole new show each season. Which is kind of strange, but it’s super interesting to watch and it makes you excited to learn the theme of the following season. It’s also the perfect show to watch this time of year with Halloween being right around the corner.


The previews for this show got me hooked right from the start. Every article I read on the top shows for the fall stated how great the show was and how it would be the next Parenthood. I don’t know about you, but Parenthood was one of my all-time favorite shows. So the moment they compared This is Us to Parenthood, I immediately plugged the premiere date into my iPhone’s calendar so I wouldn’t forget about it although I didn’t have cable yet soooo I missed it).

I finally watched the series premiere over the weekend and I LOVED it. I can’t wait to watch more. It definitely has that Parenthood feel to it.  Very family oriented and the plot twist at the end had me eager to watch more. Watch the first episode and I promise you’ll be hooked!


Is anyone else as excited about this as I am?! I couldn’t possibly have bene more excited when I found out it was coming back. My mom and I used to love watching this show together and I still have Netflix marathons of it here and there. Gilmore Girls comes back in late November and I cannot wait for it! The previews are making me more and more ready to find out what happens and reconnect with the characters.


Zack and I are huge fans of Supernatural. We started from the beginning again after he came home from Japan and we’re now in the middle of season 7. We’re hoping to be caught up again by the time the new season starts next month. If you’ve never seen this show, then I have no idea where you’ve been the past 10+ years. This show is amazing and constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat. Something new is always happening and it’s full of plot twists. So if you haven’t seen it, then you should definitely spend this season binge watching it! 


I had to add in some type of reality show to make this list a little more well-rounded. Dancing with the Stars just came back and I’m super excited for it! I still have yet to start the new season since we’ve been busy with the move, but I’m hoping to get caught up very soon. It always amazes me how these professional dancers turn this “normal” celebrities into professional dancers themselves. There are some that are just plain horrible, but for the most part, so many of them come out of it with some pretty impressive dancing skills. There aren’t too many people on this season that I’m really that thrilled about aside from Jana Kramer, but it’s still a great show and I’m very excited to see who wins!

What are you watching?

  • I love Supernatural! I’ve watched it right from the beginning and it’s always been a favourite of mine 🙂 Enjoy your cozy nights catching up on your shows!

    • Supernatural is one of our all-time favorite shows. My husband’s seen every episode more times than I can count haha I had stopped watching around season 5 or so so everything I’m watching now is all new to me. I’m so excited to get to season 12 so I’m caught up with the rest of the world lol

    We’re Blacklist fans, but I’m super excited for the new season of Gilmore Girls!

    • I still have yet to see Blacklist! I really need to check it out sometime when I’m in between all my other shows haha and I very much hope Gilmore Girls is amazing. I have very high hopes for that one.

  • I don’t watch Supernatural or DWTS but I watch the others + many more! Fall TV is the best! I’ve been pretty disappointed with AHS (nothing beats S1) but this season has been pretty interesting so far!

    • I think Coven was my favorite season of AHS so far. I’m currently finishing up Hotel so I can start on the new season. I also really love fall TV. Everything good comes out this time of year lol

  • I’m excited for Gilmore Girls too! I wasn’t a fan of AHS last season but I’m enjoying this season so far.

    • That’s the thing about AHS. Since every season is completely different, it’s not always guaranteed you’ll like it. I hated Freak Show and I’m finishing up Hotel right now, which I like but I don’t think it’s my favorite. I think Coven was my favorite out of all of them so far. I also liked Asylum. But I’m super excited to see the new season. I’ve heard good things about it!

  • Love this! I’ve been watching This Is Us as well and it’s SO good! Also, GILMORE GIRLS!! I’ve been a Gilmore Girls fan literally since the show started however many years ago, so I’ve been waiting for this season forever!! I’m definitely planning to binge-watch the entire season in one day – no shame!

    • Yessss. This Is Us is so amazing so far. I’m hooked on it. And I will also be watching the entire new season of Gilmore Girls in one day haha rain or shine. I’m not leaving the house until it’s done. The only downside to Netflix shows, though, is that you then have to wait an entire year for the next season. I have that issue with Orange is the New Black too. You watch it all in a day or two and then it’s the waiting game for 12 months while you wait for the next season. So crappy haha

  • I might have to try watching “This is us”, it sounds good! I’ve always been a big fan of the other ones you listed! I’m behind two seasons of AHS though, so I need to catch up!

    • I would also be behind two seasons in AHS if I hadn’t skipped Freak Show. I just wasn’t a fan of it at all. I couldn’t get into it. But I’m finishing up Hotel right now and then I can finally start the new season 🙂

      • Yep freak show is the one that I had a really hard time getting into also- I’m glad I’m not the only one! I watched a few episodes but I just didn’t like it as much as the other seasons, those ones I had a hard time stopping! That’s a good idea to skip it, I’m glad Hotel is better! I’ll have to start it back up again 🙂

  • Patricia Conte

    Of course I can’t wait for Gilmore Girls, but I’m really excited about This is Us! It’ll be my replacement for Parenthood, maybe?

    • There will never be a replacement for Parenthood. I cried when that ended haha but This Is Us is just as good so far! I’m loving it 🙂

  • I didn’t realize Gilmore Girls was coming back so soon! I’m soooo excited! I’ve also been watching the new seasons of Secrets and Lies and How to Get Away with Murder. Both have me hooked!

    • Yes!!! I’ve had it on my calendar for months now! The moment the release day was released haha I’m kinda sorta very excited for it. I’ve never seen Secrets and Lies or How to Get Away With Murder so I’ll have to check those out as well. You all have so many great recommendations. At this rate, I’m never leaving the house haha

  • I’m probably going to for sure watch gildmore girls and this is us. I watch Law and Order Abu and Chicago Pd on Wednesdays. I love Fall line ups. Can’t wait to catch these.

    • I’ve heard great things about Chicago PD! It’s on my watch list but I still have yet to see an episode. I’ll have to start that soon!

  • I have heard good things about This Is Us. I’m watching Cutthroat Kitchen, Ink Master, Worst Cooks, Chopped, 90 Day Fiance, and I can’t remember what else. I just let my DVR do the work for me lol. I’m usually surprised about what pops up on the DVR haha

    • DVR is such a great invention haha I’m not big on cooking/food related shows since I literally can’t stand cooking. But I am obsessed with Bar Rescue and Kitchen Nightmares. That’s the closest I get in that sense haha

  • LOVE Gilmore Girls so much, and it’s a show I always have as a default if I want something on TV. Great list!

    • Gilmore Girls is literally the best lol I’m going to re-watch it this month so everything is fresh in my mind for when the new season comes out. I’ll probably binge watch the entire new season in one day haha

  • I have heard SO many amazing things about This Is Us. Right now I’m obsessed with Grey’s!!

    • This Is Us is amazing! Definitely check it out sometime. It has you feeling all the feels haha and this time of year, I really love family-oriented shows as well. I still have yet to see Grey’s. I’ve always heard great things about it so I’ve been meaning to watch it. But the fact that they’re SO many seasons in has me not wanting to start it haha it would just take me forever to catch up. But it’s still on my watch list so I’ll get to it at some point.

  • I had no idea that American Horror Story was like a whole new show every season, that’s way cool! I tried to get into that show but it creeped me out too much. Maybe I’ll try again, haha.

    • Haha it can be kinda creepy and strange. But I’m just too hooked on it. And I love that it’s kind of like a new show each season. It makes it even more interesting! There’s only one season I haven’t been a fan of so it’s a winner in my book lol definitely check it out sometime!

  • We still don’t have cable. But thankfully, Netflix just added the newest seasons of all of my favorite shows: Bones, Blue Bloods, and Hawaii 5-0. I think I am set for a couple of months 😉

    • I’ve seen Bones but I have yet to watch Blue Bloods and Hawaii 5-0. So I’ll have to check them out! Thank God for Netflix and Hulu and all those other awesome apps. It makes it so much easier to not have cable these days lol

  • This Is Us is way too amazing already. I’m so hooked on it! And I’m so glad I’m watching it right from the start too. I’ll always be caught up lol and AHS isn’t for everyone. I feel like people either really love it or just aren’t into it. There’s no in between lol

  • I love scary shows! Especially this time of year. I’ve always been a scary movie/show kind of person haha but Dancing with the Stars is so much fun to watch! Especially when your favorite celebrities are competing.

  • I’ve never even heard of Designate Survivor haha what’s it about?? Maybe I’ll have to check it out.

    • It’s brand spankin’ new! The main character has to assume the presidency after a terrorist attack, and it’s unfolding from there. We just watched the first two episodes tonight….phenomenal.

  • Gilmore Girls!! I seriously couldn’t be more excited about the Netflix reboot–I remember watching the very last episode on the CW years and years ago and just being distraught that it was all over. I know exactly what I’ll be doing Thanksgiving!

    • My mom and I used to watch Gilmore Girls ALL THE TIME. We loved it. So I’ll definitely be kicking off the holiday season with a Gilmore Girls marathon haha

  • I have been wanting to watch This is Us! I’ve heard it is really good. I need to get caught up on watching Gilmore Girls, so I can start watching the new episodes when they come out.

    • I’m completely in love with This Is Us so far. Definitely the next Parenthood if they keep it up lol and I’m beyond excited for Gilmore Girls to come back! I’ll probably binge watch it all again before it comes out. That way it’s all fresh in my mind lol

  • I am so looking to Gilmore girls it’s not even funny. And I went to a screening of This is Us and fell in love. Been loving the show so far.

    • The teasers for the Gilmore Girls are killing me! haha I’m so ready for it to come out already! And that’s super cool that you got to go to a screening for This Is Us. I’m already loving it so much.
