Fox has a theme this year and — the network is going after the sci-fi audience. New shows this coming fall have characters with special abilities, one takes place 400 years in the future, and there is a supernatural comedy.

Did you ever get a song stuck in your head? That seems to be happening to me with FOX’s 2016-17 pilots for the upcoming season. It’s not necessarily a bad thing either. I keep having Cher’s If I Could Turn Back Time pop into my head and then sometimes I hear Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time as well. It could be that I grew up in the 1980’s or maybe, just maybe, there is something as to why these “time” songs are stuck in my head.
The Discovery Channel is enjoying a successful run and it continued this past year with primetime ratings up 12% from the previous year. The network will return the staples that have gotten them this successful run and shows will include the favorite Shark Week. Also coming back to help secure the loyal fan base will be Naked and Afraid, Deadliest Catch, Bering Sea Gold, and Gold Rush. This should keep the network right around where it has been in recent years, but in order to move up and garner higher viewership, Discovery is bringing in several interesting new shows this coming year.
With Duck Dynasty seeming to have reached its peak, A&E is looking to rebound from lower-than-expected viewership this past year. Primetime viewership was down 28% from the previous year, and with that news, the network will bring back its bigger shows, which include Bates Motel and Unforgettable. The network is also pinning its hopes on several key new programs this coming year. At the start of 2016, A&E will premiere Damien.
A&E A&E will look to build upon their big 2013, which saw the network’s total viewers rise by 10% during the year. Helping them in their quest to obtain more viewers will of course be the hit Duck Dynasty. Joining Dynasty will be Wahlburgers, Devious Maids, and Bates Motel. Hoping to get on the schedule with those shows are several interesting series […]
