We may be in the midst of Spring season finales, but we're already looking ahead to some of the exciting shows coming up this Fall. With familiar faces like Rebel Wilson, Andy Samberg, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers heading to the small screen, we can't wait to set our DVRs. Check out all the comedies and dramas to look forward to this Fall!
This Fall, The CW has a brand-new schedule, and there are plenty of shows to be excited about, including a Vampire Diaries spin-off and several new series. Royals caught in a love triangle, vampires taking over New Orleans, a superhuman teen torn between his people and dangerous scientists — the new shows will bring lots of romance, drama, and action to the small screen. Take a look at all the new shows headed to The CW!
If you're very used to your weekly routine with your CW shows, then get ready to be flexible, because the network is shaking up its entire Fall schedule. At this week's upfronts, the network announced that almost all of its returning shows will air on a new night (with the exception of The Vampire Diaries). For instance, Hart of Dixie is now on Mondays, Supernatural is on Tuesdays, and The Carrie Diaries will now be on Friday nights. It's not just veteran shows that are subverting expectations, either: the new The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals won't follow its sister show on Thursdays and will instead be on Tuesdays. Along with its schedule announcement, The CW also announced that Nikita will be wrapping up after its six-episode run in the midseason schedule.
Check out the full Fall schedule for The CW after the jump.
CBS has announced its new lineup, and among the returning shows, there are some promising new ones. Robin Williams is paired with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kal Penn is buds with Tony Shalhoub, and Dylan McDermott will appear with Toni Collette. Which series should you mark on your calendar? Click through to watch trailers of all the shows, including Josh Holloway's midseason thriller.
Following this week's big reveal of the mother on How I Met Your Mother, CBS has announced even more big news about the show. Entertainment president Nina Tassler has divulged that next season — the series's final one — will exclusively span the 56 hours leading up to Barney and Robin's wedding. Over the course of that time, each character will get to meet the mother, all culminating in Ted's eventual meeting with her.
Real talk: I'm bummed. Minus the progression of Barney and Robin's relationship, the last few seasons of the show have felt like filler. Finally we get to meet the mother, but after spending almost a decade watching Ted search for her, we're not even going to see their courtship! Maybe I'm overreacting. What are your thoughts?
Following in the footsteps of NBC, Fox, and ABC, CBS is the fourth network to unveil its Fall schedule during this week's upfronts. It's introducing five (out of eight) new shows this Fall, three of which will start out the week on Monday nights, in between established comedies How I Met Your Mother (in its last season) and 2 Broke Girls. The network is also bringing two new comedies to Thursday nights, featuring Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Will Arnett.
CBS has also moved Hawaii Five-0 to Fridays and stacked Person of Interest after NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles on Tuesday evenings. Stay tuned to find out when the network's three midseason shows will be scheduled.

The Fall schedules continue to roll out this week, and following Fox and NBC's lineup announcements, ABC has unveiled its own plans. The network is completely revamping its Tuesday night lineup, showcasing four very different new shows on that night, including Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Malin Akerman/Bradley Whitford comedy Trophy Wife.
Modern Family will be sandwiched in its usual Wednesday night slot by two new shows, James Caan's baseball series Back in the Game and Rebel Wilson's new comedy Super Fun Night. The other big news is that Dancing With the Stars will now be reduced to just one night instead of two.

Comedies Dads and Andy Samberg's Brooklyn Nine-Nine join the Tuesday night comedy block before returning hits New Girl and The Mindy Project, as well as army comedy Enlisted in the late Fall.
Fox has a year to determine when new midseason series Gang Related, Surviving Jack, Us and Them, and Murder Police will figure into its schedule. The other big news? Fox chairman Kevin Reilly also confirmed that 24 will be back, running in a "limited series" of 12 episodes in the Summer of 2014.
