New to view – 18 new shows for 2018

Remember when the fall television lineups were all that mattered?

It wasn't so long ago that that autumn offerings were the be-all and end-all of new TV. Shows that made their debuts in January were considered little more than filler, with the term “midseason replacement” taking on a derogatory tone.

However, as the ways in which we consume television have changed, so too have our attitudes regarding when shows join their respective lineups. Instead of an afterthought, this second season has become a viable entity in its own right, with loads of interesting programming arriving on your screens of choice.

Broadcast networks, premium and basic cable outlets, streaming services - everybody has something for the viewer looking for something new to consume this winter. If nothing else, it seems likely that all tastes - highbrow, lowbrow and everything in-between - will be addressed.

Have a look at some of the intriguing options that are en route.

X-Men: Apocalypse' a bit X-cessive

Latest X-movie uneven, but still entertaining

The X-Men have had a bumpy ride on the big screen. The first 'X-Men' was a huge part in kickstarting the renaissance of now-ubiquitous superhero movies.

What's new on the networks

a fall 2012 TV preview

Being a television executive is much like being a professional gambler: It's a business built around taking huge risks. Sometimes, those risks pay off hugely. More often, they don't. So it is with new network television shows. For every breakout hit, there are half a dozen flops. And that doesn't even count the scores of filmed pilots that ultimately fail to find a home.

Still, hope springs eternal, even in the entertainment business. The network dial is riddled with new offerings this fall. Any one of them could conceivably capture the public's imagination and become a mainstay for the next five years. Of course, that just means the rest of them will be boring, bland and ultimately forgettable assuming they aren't epically terrible. We can probably count on at least one of those as well.
