Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 3.23.09 PM

There are two reasons why I get excited when September rolls around. First there is the fact that summer is finally over and second FALL TV!!!. I get very giddy when the lists finally comes out of the new and returning shows for the Fall Season. While I love all types of genres I was especially excited to see what Comedy shows we had coming our way this season. So will this season have another Modern Family or a Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

Below you can see trailers of the ten upcoming comedy series that I am most looking forward to seeing and that you should check out as well.

1. Black-Ish:

A comedy that has an amazing cast that consists of Executive Producers Anthony Anderson and Laurence Fishburne and features the beautiful Tracee Ellis Ross. This comedy revolves around a father who thinks that his African American family is losing their African roots due to the fact that they are living in a suburban neighborhood.

Why you should see it:

I mean let’s be honest, who doesn’t like Anthony Anderson? Or Laurence Fishburne and Tracee Ellis Ross for that matter. The cast meshes well together and it’s guaranteed to get a few good laughs out of you. As a big Anthony Anderson fan, I am eagerly awaiting this show. Black-ish airs September 24th on ABC.

2. Marry Me:

Comes from Happy Endings creator David Caspe and follows a couple that has been together for six years; and have yet to actually get married.

Why you should see it:

Once more the cast! The cast features Happy Endings’ Casey Wilson (hilarious chick!) and Ken Marino. And knowing that it comes from mastermind David Caspe, you really can’t go wrong with this formula. Marry Me will air October 14th on NBC.

3. Cristella: 

It follows the life of a Mexican-American law school graduate who is still living with her family and is trying to find her way.

Why you should see it:

It’s a refreshing comedy about a Latin family. With the lack of TV shows that really showcase the quintessential Hispanic family it’s nice to see something like this, something that shows what my family is like. The comedic timing of Cristela Alonzo and Gabriel Iglesias in the trailer makes it worth watching at least the pilot. Cristela will air October 10th on ABC.

4. Manhattan Love Story:

One of those stories that I think both males and females will enjoy watching. The story revolves around Dana and Peter and as they start dating we are able to hear their thoughts about one another.

Why you should watch it:

Don’t we all at one point or another wish that we could hear what the opposite sex is thinking about us? Manhattan Love Story airs September 20th on ABC.

5. Selfie:

An ABC Comedy from Suburgatory’s Emily Kapnek. While we don’t get much from it from the actual trailer, it looks like it could be good show if written the right way. This is a remake of My Fair Lady in the new age where Eliza Dooley (played by Karen Gillian) is a social media obsessed girl who does not really know how to normally interact with people. That’s where Henry Higenbottam comes in, played by John Cho, to teach her how to naturally interact with people.

Why you should see it:

There is a lot of potential here seeing as how it comes from the creator of Suburgatory.

6. Bad Judge:

Kate Walsh is back on TV! Created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Kate plays a tough judge who likes to party and act reckless.

Why you should see it:

While we’ll get to see the dirty humor that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are known for there are also heartfelt moments between this bad judge and some of the people that she comes in contact with. Airing October 2nd on NBC, judging by the trailer let’s hope that it keeps getting better.

7. Mulaney:

Features Emmy award winning comedian John Mulaney who plays a fictionalized version of himself in this show. Seinfield anyone? He is joined by SNL’s Nasim Pedrad, Marting Short and Elliot Gould who round out the comedic team.

Why you should watch it:

John Mulaney created great characters like Stefon from Saturday Night Live, so it’ll be great to see how he does outside of that show. Plus, you have veterans Martin Short and Elliot Gould as well as the funny and likeable Nasin Pedrad. Mulaney will premiere on October 5th at Fox.

8. The McCarthys:

Whose writer Brian Gallivan is also another Happy Endings alum, brings us a very close-knit Boston family that has to deal with the fact that one of the sons will be moving away.

Why you should see it: It’s a multi-cam sitcom, if done right it will probably have a long life on NBC; and it’s a nice comedy that the whole family would enjoy. The McCarthy’s will premier October 30th on CBS.

9. A to Z:

A romantic comedy that chronicles a relationship from beginning to end. It kind of resembles 500 Days of Summer in the way that it’s set up.

Why you should see it:

Who doesn’t like a good Romantic Comedy? A to Z will air on NBC October 2nd.

And Finally we have

10. Survivor’s Remorse: 

A basketball comedy that is produced by LeBron James and stars Jessie T. Usher, RonReaco Lee, Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, and Teyonah Parris. This brand new comedy will premier October 4th on Starz.

Why You Should See it:

Tichina Arnold and Mike Epps: naturally funny people that will most definitely make this show a hit.
