Your 10 Most Anticipated New TV Shows of Fall 2016

You voted, now here are the results!

Alexander Zalben

As soon as the networks started announcing their new Fall TV schedules, viewers started adding shows to their Watchlists on TVGuide.com. And now that the TV season is finally here, we can reveal your most anticipated new shows of Fall 2016.

The winners probably won't be too much of a shock. Star-driven shows like Kiefer Sutherland's Designated Survivor, and Michael Weatherly's Bull lead the pack, as well as proven franchises like Macgyver and Lethal Weapon. Time travel -- a big theme across all networks this fall -- takes two spots (Timeless, Frequency); and the Shondaland-esque heirs apparent Conviction and Notorious also stake their claims.

Rounding out the Top 10, The Good Place is the only half-hour comedy that broke through. And the mysterious family drama This is Us is slowly creeping up the list, due in part to the star power of Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore as much as to the intriguing trailer, which has racked up more than 90 million views since it launched.

Fall TV: Add new shows to your Watchlist now!

The Watchlist, by the way, is a proven indicator of what does -- and doesn't -- stick around past the first few episodes. So when Sutherland says he read the Designated Survivor script and thought, "Oh god, this is the next 10 years of my life," our data backs him up.

But enough prelude. Check out the full list below (as originally revealed in conjunction with AdAge). And if you want an alternate take, check out our editors' picks for their most anticipated shows of the fall here.
