There are a lot of TV shows returning and premering in the fall. Start making room on your DVR now because there are many can't-miss series on the boob tube.

I spent hours last weekend clearing out tons of space on my DVR. I know it can be a chore, but it's so refreshing afterwards!  (Did that sound like a body wash commercial to anyone else?) 

Check out the list for your favorite shows, mark your calendars and get ready for a long winter with some great TV.
