Ah, September. The air is crisper, the leaves are falling, students are heading back to school, and pumpkin spice is making a miraculous comeback. And best of all, so is television! Nothing beats the feeling of your favorite shows returning, trying out pilot episodes, and deciding which new shows to invest your time in. With so much new TV to see, it can be difficult to keep up with what to watch, where, and when. Not to worry! Here’s your unofficial Fall Comedy TV Guide to help you decide what to look for in the coming chilly months.
