Since questions have been coming up, and I've been compiliing a list anyway, after the jump I am putting a chronology of the new TV season, or at least for September and October. It's as accurate as I can make it right now, but I will make changes if dates change. And if they're any shows you're wondering about that are not on the list, post a comment and I will try to update. I'm also going to put this in the pages section of the blog, with the network fall announcements.
