There are 31 shows debuting this month and even more producers holding their breath, hoping for a second season. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” shows promise to become a regular on the Fox Tuesday lineup. Produced by the same genius minds that gave us “Parks and Recreation” and staring SNL alum Andy Samberg, this cop comedy will make even the most serious viewers chuckle.
In case there aren't enough shows about vampires and the undead, “Sleepy Hollow” and “Dracula” are making an appearance just in time for Halloween. Apparently there is a niche market of 19th-century literature enthusiasts who are also obsessed with “The Walking Dead.” “Sleepy Hollow” follows Ichabod Crane, after he awakes in modern times, on his journey to defeat the Headless Horsemen. While there are a few “Welcome to 2013” moments in the pilot episode, the show will not focus on Crane’s adjustment to technology. Instead he partners with Abby Mills, a detective who has also had a close encounter with death in the flesh, to prevent the apocalypse.
