Fall TV: 7 Intriguing New Matchups, Like ‘Magnum PI’ vs ‘9-1-1’ (Photos)

It’s not even summer yet and we’re already looking forward to fall. After all, that’s when the best TV shows come back on (and the oppressive heat subsides).

Much like you fans, we at TheWrap are dying to find out what happens next with our favorite small-screen characters. But we’ve also got an eye on another angle: What are the most intriguing new matchups?

Now that we knows the days and time slots for all new and returning broadcast primetime series, we’ve pinpointed seven battles worth watching.

The CW (The CW) vs. Everybody (ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC)
Guess who’s coming to Sundays? For the first time in nine years, The CW is bringing back nationally programmed Sunday nights next season, when it will air “Supergirl” at 8 p.m. and the “Charmed” reboot at 9.

Welcome! For starters, you’ve got TV’s top show, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” to contend with. On Fox, it’ll be animation and freshman show “Rel”; on CBS, “God Friended Me” and “NCIS: Los Angeles”; and on ABC, “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” and “Shark Tank.”

So good luck with all of that.

“Magnum P.I.” (CBS) vs. “9-1-1” (Fox)
No mustache (OK, so there’s a goatee) — but does this comma-less remake of the ’80s “Magnum, P.I.” have teeth? It had better to go up against Ryan Murphy’s “9-1-1,” which is already established in the 9 o’clock time slot on Mondays.

The Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and now Jennifer Love Hewitt-led Fox drama averaged a big 3.0 rating in the core 18-49 demographic when counting a week’s worth of delayed viewing. The freshman first-responder series was Fox’s highest-rated entertainment show of the season, beating even “Empire.”

In other words, better keep that Ferrari perfectly waxed and buffed, Magnum.

“Manifest” (NBC) vs. “Bull” (CBS) vs. “The Good Doctor” (ABC)
Apparently, no one told these guys that three is a crowd.

Let’s start with the returning shows: “The Good Doctor” was this season’s top new drama, averaging a huge 15.6 million total viewers per episode. “Bull” was literally the next most-watched series on broadcast, hauling in 14.3 million viewers of its own. Though it stands to reason that the ABC medical show’s Nielsen numbers will decline in Year 2, “Bull” will be moving away from the huge lead-in “NCIS” currently provides — so say farewell to some built-in eyeballs.

So where does “Manifest” fit in here? Well, we’ll have to wait and find out. If done right, the Robert Zemeckis missing-airplane drama could add some turbulence to an already competitive hour.

“F.B.I.” (CBS) vs. “This Is Us” (NBC)
Welcome to the lion’s den, “F.B.I.”

Super Bowl or no Super Bowl, “This Is Us” is a powerhouse — and freshman “F.B.I.” is moving into Milo Ventimiglia’s dorm. Remember how we wished “Bull” lots of luck without “NCIS”? Well, “F.B.I.” is the one getting the CBS springboard — but it had better be a damn good show to have a prayer against the Pearsons.

Here’s the case one could make for “F.B.I.” beyond just its lead-in: Dick Wolf knows how to make a procedural. Unfortunately for the big fan of the Windy City, Dan Fogelman knows how to make you cry. Tears beat Miranda Rights every time.

“Murphy Brown” (CBS) vs. “Thursday Night Football” (Fox)
“Roseanne” has changed everything — but we don’t think that means Fox Sports should be shaking in its cleats. Football is still going to win this battle, but Fox’s fancy new primetime pro pigskin should see a pretty formidable opponent in “Murphy Brown” — especially over the revival’s first few weeks.

Still, any given Thursday, are we right?

To look at it another way, for $3.3 billion, Fox had better win every damn Thursday that 106 men put on pads.

“Last Man Standing” (Fox) vs. “Fresh Off the Boat” (ABC)
This one isn’t so much about “Fresh Off the Boat” as it is about Tim Allen vs. ABC.

The comedian and Michigan Tourism spokesman really let ABC have it for canceling his reliable Friday sitcom a year ago. Now revived by Fox, you’d better believe that the “Home Improvement” alum wants to dominate the Disney-owned broadcast network in his time period. He will, let’s just home the comeback is funnier than Allen’s set at the Fox upfront.

Pure victory. (CUT TO: Shot of Lake Michigan)

Also Read: The CW Schedule: ‘Supergirl,’ ‘Charmed’ on Fall Sundays; ‘Jane,’ ‘iZombie’ to End in Midseason

“Roseanne” (ABC) vs. “The Neighborhood” (CBS)
At the CBS upfront, entertainment President Kelly Kahl talked about how “The Neighborhood” star Cedric the Entertainer comes complete with a built-in audience — he’d better.

“Roseanne” will win running away Tuesdays at 8 o’clock, though CBS comedies not named “9JKL” and “Living Biblically” still tend to draw solid viewership. As awkward as the post-pilot “Neighborhood” recasting in favor of Max Greenfield may be, it’s a very good decision and a role he’ll kill in.

That said, “The Neighborhood” is now on its third title, and that’s never a good sign. Hey, you probably could’ve hung with “Splitting Up Together”!

Your first glimpse at The CW’s “Charmed” reboot is here, along with a trailer for football drama “All American,” which were released at the network’s 2018 upfronts presentation in New York on Thursday.

In addition to five new series orders, The CW renewed 12 of its series, including “Riverdale,” “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” and “Jane the Virgin.” “Life Sentence” and “Valor” were canceled last week, both after one season.

Check out the full schedule — including the added Sunday night — over here, and watch the trailers below.

“Charmed”
After the tragic death of their mother, three sisters in a college town are stunned to discover they are witches. Soon this powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy.

The three sisters will be played by Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery.

The series (a reboot of the show of the same name which ran on The WB/The CW from 1998-2006) is written and executive produced by Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, along with executive producer and creator Jennie Urman. Brad Silberling directed the pilot and is grabbing an executive producing credit with Ben Silverman and Carter Covington. It comes from CBS Television Studios in association with Propagate Content.

 

“All American”
When a rising high school football player from South L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds — Crenshaw and Beverly Hills — begin to collide. Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger.

April Blair is writer and executive producer, along with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Rob Hardy directed the pilot and will also executive produce. Robbie Rogers is a producer and Dane Morck will act as a consultant. The series is backed by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios in association with Berlanti Productions.

And here are the descriptions for the other new series:

“Legacies”
Continuing the tradition of “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals,” the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?

Julie Plec and Brett Matthews write and executive producer, along with Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. The series comes from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with My So-Called Television and Alloy Entertainment.

“In the Dark”
A flawed and irreverent blind woman is the only “witness” to the murder of her drug-dealing friend. After the police dismiss her story, she sets out with her dog, Pretzel, to find the killer while also managing her colorful dating life and the job she hates at the guide dog school owned by her overprotective parents.

It is written and executive produced by Corinne Kingsbury, along with Ben Stiller, Jackie Cohn, Nicky Weinstock, Emily Fox (Red Hour Films). Michael Showalter directed the pilot and will also executive produce. The series hails from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. TV in association with Red Hour Films.

“Roswell, New Mexico”
After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: he’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

The cast includes Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons, Tyler Blackburn and Michael Trevino.

Carina Adly MacKenzie is writer and executive producer, along with Brett Matthews, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Lawrence Bender and Kevin Kelly Brown. Julie Plec directed the pilot and is an executive producer. The series is based on the Roswell High book series, by Melinda Metz and hails fromWarner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios in association with Amblin Television and Bender Brown Productions.

CW’s Upfront presentation today winds up the broadcast TV portion of the week, at New York City Center.  CW chief Mark Pedowitz will walk media buyers through network’s expansion to six nights a week, with the add of a Sunday slate, for 12 hours of original scripted programing – trailing only CBS. Making good on its promise to use existing series and recognizable franchises to return to Sundays nine years after turned it back to affiliate stations, Supergirl got elected…

The CW Boss on Starting Up Sundays Again: We Wanted ‘Shows That Empowered Women’

CW Sundays are for the girls.

The network’s new Sunday night of original programming begins with the hit “Supgirl” and will be followed by the new “Charmed” reboot, and the decision to put those two shows back-to-back had everything to do with empowering women, according to CW President Mark Pedowitz.

“We wanted to have an established show on Sunday night,”  Pedowitz told reporters during a conference call ahead of its 2018 Upfronts presentation to advertisers Thursday. “We wanted name value with ‘Charmed,’ on there. We felt that it was two shows that empowered women and were making a statement that we were not kidding, we were not going to phone it in on Sunday nights — That we were going to compete.”

“So we believed with ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Charmed,’ we will have those two assets that will do that,” he said.

Pedowitz added that this year, 30 of the network’s 37 series regulars are women and/or people of color, and all five new series have female writers and executive producers. “Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Urman is behind the reboot of the early ’00s teen witch drama.

When the reboot was initially picked up, some fans of the original — and members of the original cast — were skeptical. But Pedowitz says there are still “many similarities” and urged fans to watch the series before giving up on “Charmed.”

“Hopefully, [critics] would give this new cast a chance,” he said. “There are many similarities, and hopefully they’ll give it a shot.”

“We are happy with who we’ve casted, think its a nice mix. Jennie Snyder Urman has reimagined it somewhat, and I can only say to fans: before you make a decision, watch the series.”

The CW May Be Small, But It Will Air More Hours of Scripted Series Than ABC, NBC or Fox Next Season

“Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “iZombie” return for their final seasons, as the CW’s fall schedule features new series including a “Charmed” remake and a return to “The Vampire Diaries” universe. Also: Why “Wayward Sisters” didn’t make it.

The CW revealed a 2018-2019 TV schedule on Thursday with 12 hours of original scripted series — which The CW president Mark Pedowitz boasted was more than any other broadcast network except CBS.

“The more programming we have, the better off we are,” said The CW president Mark Pedowitz. “It includes our own cwtv.com, as well as the back end that the studios have on the Netflix arrangement. The affiliates were very much supportive of having another night of programming provided by the CW. It was combination of a multiple of things. We do believe in broadcast, we are growing and we wanted to stake a claim that we can grow while others contract.”

The CW will return to Sunday night with two female-centric shows as counterprogramming to NBC’s NFL football: “Supergirl” and the new version of “Charmed.”

Other new series this fall include “Legacies,” a new extension of the “Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” universe, and the drama “All American.”

Pedowitz also explained why the potential “Supernatural” spinoff pilot “Wayward Sisters,” which aired as a backdoor pilot on “Supernatural” in January, won’t be going forward. Much to the chagrin of fans, Pedowitz noted that “we are big fans of the characters and the women who played those characters in the series, but we did not feel creatively that the show is where we wanted it to be.”

Pedowitz added that The CW “felt we had a better shot with ‘Legacies,'” its new chapter in “The Vampire Diaries” saga.

The CW will launch its 2018-19 season in October, with premiere dates to be announced later.

New Show Descriptions

“Charmed”
“Stronger together.” That’s what Marisol tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie “Mel” Vera, and her sister, fun-loving Maggie, about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women’s studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering rushing a sorority (to Mel’s amused dismay) and going “on” again with her on-again off-again boyfriend Brian. But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond: Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it? Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother’s death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister, brilliant geneticist Macy, whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn’t know a soul (except for Galvin, the cute fellow scientist who’s been showing her around). Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can’t handle another shock, and shuts her out. With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others’ thoughts, and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don’t worry, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation…or so says Harry Greenwood (who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women’s studies department), when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they’re actually powerful witches, as was their mother. And he’s not really a professor, he’s their “Whitelighter,” a witch’s advisor and guide! Not only that, but Mel was right: their mother’s death was no accident – she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It’s a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones…and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us…one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together… even if they have no idea what they’re really up against. Starring Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock, Rupert Evans, Ser’Darius Blaine, Charlie Gillespie, and Ellen Tamaki . Based on the original series, CHARMED is from CBS Television Studios in association with Propagate Content, with executive producers Jessica O’Toole (“Jane The Virgin”), Amy Rardin (“Jane The Virgin”), Jennie Snyder Urman (“Jane The Virgin”), Ben Silverman (“The Office”), Brad Silberling (“Jane The Virgin”) and Carter Covington (“Faking It”).

“All American”
Spencer James is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Now Spencer must navigate two worlds, the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son, Jordan (the team’s starting quarterback), is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight — with Spencer. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia, who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla, something her boyfriend, Asher, quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.

“Legacies”
For the last decade, the iconic heroes and villains of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have captivated audiences worldwide. They left an enduring legacy of love and family in their wake, which continues in LEGACIES, a thrilling new drama that tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. It’s here that Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults — including political scion MG and the mysterious Landon Kirby — come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be? As they fight to protect their secret, their town of Mystic Falls and eventually the world, they will have to rely on ancient folklore and tales to learn how to battle their far-reaching enemies. LEGACIES stars Danielle Rose Russell, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, Quincy Fouse and Aria Shaghasemi, with Matt Davis. LEGACIES is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios in association with My So-Called Company, with executive producers Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries”), Brett Matthews (“The Vampire Diaries”), Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Pretty Little Liars”) and Gina Girolamo (“The Originals”).

“In the Dark”
Murphy is a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected twentysomething with a penchant for cigarettes and casual sex. She’s also blind. Murphy lives with her understanding roommate, Jess, and more reluctantly also lives with her guide dog, Pretzel, whose presence she resents. Her parents, Hank and Joy, own a guide dog school, a venture they opened hoping it would give Murphy a job with some purpose, but so far it’s just another place where she sleeps off her hangovers, much to the particular chagrin of Joy and Felix, the school administrator tasked with attempting to keep the unprofitable school going. Murphy’s closest friend is a sweet teenager named Tyson. Tyson and Murphy became friends after he saved her from a violent mugging, and his kindness and intelligence are currently going to waste as he deals drugs on the street for his older cousin, Darnell. Then Murphy’s life comes crashing down when, while out for a walk with Pretzel, she stumbles upon what she’s sure is the lifeless body of Tyson in the alley outside her apartment. But when the police arrive, including a charming detective named Dean, there is no body to be found – and with Murphy not exactly sober, the police aren’t especially inclined to investigate. Murphy is devastated, and is only held back from spiraling downward even further by her resolve to learn what happened to Tyson. With the help of Jess – and Pretzel – Murphy is determined to find the truth, no matter the risk… even if it means she has to sober up a little. IN THE DARK stars Perry Mattfeld, Brooke Markham, Keston John, Kathleen York, Derek Webster and Morgan Krantz. IN THE DARK is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, in association with Red Hour Films, with executive producers Corinne Kingsbury, Jon Collier (“Bones”), Ben Stiller (“Zoolander”), Jackie Cohn, Nicky Weinstock and Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick”).

“Roswell, New Mexico”
More than maybe anywhere else on Earth, Roswell, New Mexico is ground zero for those who seek proof that aliens exist. Roswell native Liz Ortecho left it all behind 10 years ago, after the death of her beloved older sister, Rosa. But with her father ailing, she reluctantly returns to her tourist-trap hometown to move back in with him. When Liz arrives, she reconnects with Max Evans, her teenage crush who is now a Roswell police officer. Their chemistry is instantly electric. But Liz soon discovers a shocking truth: Max is an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life, along with those of his otherworldly siblings, Isobel and Michael. As the two grow closer after a decade apart, Liz finds it difficult to keep the truth from her best friend, Maria De Luca, and her trusting high school ex, Dr. Kyle Valenti. Also hiding their extraterrestrial origins are Isobel and Michael, with Isobel not even revealing the truth to her husband, Noah, and Michael keeping his identity hidden beneath a bad-boy exterior of hard living and casual hookups. Meanwhile, a long-standing government conspiracy spearheaded by Master Sgt. Jesse Manes, along with the politics of fear and hatred that run rampant in Roswell, threatens to expose Max and his family, and could endanger his deepening romance with Liz…as well as their lives. ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO stars Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons, Michael Trevino, Lily Cowles, Michael Vlamis, Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens, Trevor St. John and Karan Oberoi.

And because it is worth having everything in one place, below are the official series descriptions for the newcomers — all in The CW’s own words.

“Charmed”
“Stronger together.” That’s what Marisol tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie “Mel” Vera, and her sister, fun-loving Maggie, about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women’s studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering rushing a sorority (to Mel’s amused dismay) and going “on” again with her on-again off-again boyfriend Brian. But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond:  Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it?  Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother’s death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door:  they have an older sister, brilliant geneticist Macy, whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn’t know a soul (except for Galvin, the cute fellow scientist who’s been showing her around).  Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can’t handle another shock, and shuts her out. With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others’ thoughts, and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don’t worry, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation…or so says Harry Greenwood (who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women’s studies department), when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they’re actually powerful witches, as was their mother.  And he’s not really a professor, he’s their “Whitelighter,” a witch’s advisor and guide!  Not only that, but Mel was right:  their mother’s death was no accident – she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It’s a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones…and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us…one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together… even if they have no idea what they’re really up against.

Starring Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock, Rupert Evans, Ser’Darius Blaine, Charlie Gillespie, and Ellen Tamaki . Based on the original series, “Charmed” is from CBS Television Studios in association with Propagate Content, with executive producers Jessica O’Toole (“Jane The Virgin”), Amy Rardin (“Jane The Virgin”), Jennie Snyder Urman (“Jane The Virgin”), Ben Silverman (“The Office”), Brad Silberling (“Jane The Virgin”) and Carter Covington (“Faking It”).

“All American”
Spencer James is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Now Spencer must navigate two worlds, the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son, Jordan (the team’s starting quarterback), is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight — with Spencer. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia, who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla, something her boyfriend, Asher, quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good. Inspired by the life of NFL player Spencer Paysinger.
