Each year, shows are cancelled and added to primetime lineups. Here are the four shows most likely to become your new favorites this fall.
Fox’s “Pitch” features fictional Ginny Baker and her start as the first woman to pitch in the MLB. Starring newcomer Kylie Bunbury (“Prom,” “Under the Dome”), “Pitch” will air on Thursdays at 9 p.m. starting September 22.
CBS’s “MacGyver” is a reboot of the 80s show of the same name. MacGyver stars Lucas Till (“Hannah Montana Movie,” “X-Men”) as Angus MacGyver, the crafty government agent who uses a Swiss Army knife and paper clip to solve problems.
“I can’t wait to watch MacGyver because I watched it when I was little with my dad, and I can’t wait to reignite that family bond,” junior Andy White. “MacGyver” premieres September 23 at 8 p.m.
NBC’s new comedy “The Good Place” stars Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) as a woman who died and is now in the afterlife. Bell dies after being hit by a truck carrying erectile disfunction pills.

ABC’s addition to their Wednesday night comedy lineup is “Speechless.” In the show, Minnie Driver (“Good Will Hunting”) portrays a mother who must be her son’s voice since he has cerebral palsy. “Speechless” will take the place of “The Middle” on Wednesday nights at 8:30 p.m. starting September 21.
