It seems like there is almost too many TV shows on the air today, not that we’re complaining. But with so many shows on television (and streaming services), it can kind of hard to figure out which ones you should be tuning into. You have to know which ones are really worth your time because there’s no way to watch everything. Here’s where your current favorite shows can help. You’re already invested in shows like Game of Thrones and Broad City, so there’s a good chance that you’ll like something similar. Check out these five new Fall TV shows based on your TV-watching preferences.
1. If You Like Game of Thrones, check out Westworld.
We’re already suffering from serious Game of Thrones withdrawals. Luckily, HBO recently came out with the futuristic sci-fi thriller, Westworld. The two series obviously inhabit very different worlds, but do share some similarities. Both of the shows benefit from HBO’s high production values which means there’s a high level of quality they have to maintain. Westworld also deals with a large cast of characters and their relationships, similar to Game of Thrones‘ enormous cast. Westworld concerns itself with the titular Western-themed amusement park, which is made up of synthetic androids, a.k.a “Hosts,” who look exactly like humans. The park caters to “Guests” who, for the right price, can visit the park and do whatever they want there. Westworld recently premiered its first episode of the season so you have a bit of catching up to do. But,it’s worth it for the high drama feel that we’ve been missing ever since the Game of Thrones season finale.
Westworld airs on Sundays at 9:00 PM (EST) on HBO.
2. If You Like The Bachelor, check out Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?.
This one’s a no-brainer. The most recent Bachelor, Ben Higgins, and his now-fiancee, Lauren Bushnell, are getting their own reality show on Freeform. If you liked the two on The Bachelor, why wouldn’t you like them on their own show? Ben and Lauren seem as cute and in love as ever. Their show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, will follow the newly engaged couple as they settle down in the real world and prepare themselves for married life. The show also promised cameos from all of our favorite Bachelor nation stars. One of those cameos looks to be from JoJo Fletcher, the other girl Ben said “I love you” to during his stint on The Bachelor. Talk about awkward! So we’ll definitely be tuning in to see how things pan out.
Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? premieres October 11th at 8:00 PM (EST) on Freeform.
3. If You Like Mad Men, check out Good Girls Revolt.
Missing Mad Men yet? Good Girls Revolt has got you covered. Good Girls Revolt captures the 1960’s feel that Mad Men was in expert in for so many years. If you’re looking for more nostalgia from that time, Good Girls Revolt is going to pick up where Mad Men left off. Good Girls Revolt is based on Lynn Povich’s novel of the same name and takes us into the lives of young female researchers at an American News magazine in the late 1960’s. We’re already loving the vibes we’re getting from this show, all the way to the incredible female empowerment themes. This one definitely seems like a winner for Amazon.
Good Girls Revolt premieres October 28th on Amazon Video.
4. If You Like House, check out Chance.
Dr. House, is that you? Well, it’s Hugh Laurie as a doctor again and we can’t help but draw the comparison here. Laurie once again portrays a doctor who gets involved with a ton of drama, this time a forensic neuropsychiatrist named Eldon Chance. Laurie’s Chance is obviously nicer than House and deals with a a whole different set of issues. Chance gets involved with an alluring patient, who’s abusive spouse gets him in a world of trouble. Chance also finds the titular character dealing with a divorce and a troublesome teenage daughter. So, kind of different from House but we can still see the remnants of the cantankerous doctor in Laurie’s Chance performance.
Chance premieres on Wednesday, October 28th on Hulu.
5. If You Like Broad City, check out Search Party.
We’re always in need of more Broad City! Unfortunately, we aren’t getting another season of Broad City until 2017. We may have just found a series that could tide us over until Broad City comes back to us. Search Party is a dark comedy that follows one girl as she goes on a search for her old college acquaintance when she realizes that she is unfulfilled by most aspects of her life. The series is even executive produced by Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez who worked on Broad City. With their involvement, you know that Search Party has to have some of the same charms that we love about Broad City. The show just also looks hilarious so we are already making a note of when it premieres so that we can watch.
Search Party premieres November 21st on TBS.
