5 TV Show Premieres We Cannot Wait to Watch This Week


September 24, 2018

By Joanne Rosa

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the start of the fall TV season. Our favorite TV shows return, and new ones to change up our TV schedules are added. This is the week we’ve been waiting for! So grab a snack, and tune into these must-see premieres.

MONDAY: The Voice


“The Voice” was always an entertaining show, but new coach Jennifer Hudson joining coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, and Blake Shelton will undoubtedly elevate the singing competition. These power house coaches will compete to get the best talent on their team. As good as talent on “The Voice” is, can we talk about how two of the most iconic “American Idol” winners are judging this year?! They actually fanned out to each other when they started. “I watched you win. You were my inspiration, and to think I did not win, and then to be able to sit here with you,” Hudson told Clarkson, who quickly cut in saying, “I think you won in life.”

The two night season 15 premiere of “The Voice” airs Monday September 24 and Tuesday September 25 at 8|7c on NBC.




Can there be a “This Is Us” after revealing Milo Ventimiglia’s character Jack Pearson went into Cardiac arrest after inhaling so much smoke going back into their house fire to save a dog? There sure is! Turns out Jack has a lot of dirty laundry to air out about his past in Vietnam, specifically what happened to his little brother Nicky. Rebecca (Mandy Moore) will be seen in her life as a new widow raising three teenagers alone.

Speaking of The Big Three, they’re turning 38 and have some developing situations of their own. Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan)- who’s in a deep depression – plan to try for another baby. Kevin (Justin Hartley) is getting serious with his sister-in-law’s cousin, Zoe. Plus, we’ll find out who the mysterious “her” is that Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and adult Tess (Iantha Richardson) visit at the end of last season.

The season three premiere of “This Is Us” airs Tuesday September 25 at 9 p.m. ET|PT on NBC.




“Empire” is finally back, and the show fast-forwarded through two years and pressed play where Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) are more broke than a sidechick’s iPhone 5 screen. More importantly, viewers will get glimpses as to who was in the coffin from last season. Friend to the show Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal, revealed after a season 5 premiere screener that episode one is “nothing compared to the rest of the season.” He also told The Hollywood Reporter “this season is really about growth and unity.”

The season 5 premiere of “Empire” airs Wednesday September 26 at 8|7c on FOX.

THURSDAY: Grey’s Anatomy


Soak it in y’all. Love or hate Meredith Grey, her last days with us might be sooner than you think. Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith, revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she might leave the show after 2020. She and Shonda Rhimes haven’t talked it through just yet, and they plan to make that decision together. “I’m clearly not prepared right now to make any formal announcement about what my future is on the show, but I am really feeling like we have told the majority of the stories that we can tell.” So yeah, 2020 might be the end of Meredith Grey, or it could be the end of “Grey’s Anatomy” all together.

If this doesn’t make you more excited for the season 15 premiere, knowing that it’s a two-hour event should do the trick. The episode, titled “With a Wonder and a Wild Desire,” Shonda has doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial “vie for a new position.” As expected, Meredith is distracted and unfocused on the competition. Maggie, the worst liar and secret keeper, must keep a big secret. Amelia and Owen are trying “to figure out their relationship,” then Alex and Jo’s honeymoon is likely just as disastrous as their wedding day.

The two-hour season 15 premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursday, September 27 at 8|7c on ABC.

FRIDAY: Made in Mexico

Socialites of Mexico City are living their best life. Nine members of high society join “Made in Mexico,” Netflix’s latest unscripted reality series. We’re expecting unfiltered drama that triumphs “Real Housewives” or “Love and Hip Hop” because they don’t have the restrictions that a cable show has.

The series premiere of “Made in Mexico” launches September 28 on Netflix.
