The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live tonight on NBC and while the awards will be looking back at last season’s shows, there’s sure to be a lot of interest in what’s coming up this fall on NBC. The 2014-2015 TV season kicks off Monday, September 22nd and that means it’s time for fall preview specials. So far, I’ve only found information on the CBS and NBC specials, nothing on
ABC, FOX or The CW. Update: I’ve added information about this year’s ABC fall preview special.
As always, check your local listings.
ABC – “Thank God It’s Thursday on ABC”
No word yet about a full fall preview from the Alphabet network but it will be releasing an affiliates special called “Thank God It’s Thursday on ABC” focusing on its Thursday line-up consisting of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away from Murder, all from producer Shonda Rhimes who will host the special. Update: This is also apparently airing nationally on ABC on Sunday, September 28th from 3-3:30PM.
