2022-2023 Network TV Schedule

Cats (Smeagle, Oreo, and Twinkle) watching a bird on TV.

It is nearing one of my favorite times of year once again: autumn. With plans to reprogram my outdoor OTA antenna this afternoon in anticipation of the upcoming network TV season, I thought it was time to share my to-watch schedule.

If I’m being honest, I didn’t make it far into last year’s network TV season. I found myself, far too often, working late hours and missing out on quality TV time. This was entirely my fault for not staying on a decent schedule. And, I ended up doing what I often do: scrambling to catch up with TV shows before the next season begins a year later.

I am still waiting for the Blu Ray or DVD releases of the latest seasons of Kung Fu and Walker, two of the shows that I’m committing myself to this year. The one show I haven’t been able to catch up with is The Rookie. Only its first season received a physical media release, so I need to find a way to catch up with it in the next month.

Maybe this year will be different. Perhaps I’ll even make it through at least one or two shows without falling behind.


I thought I’d mix it up a bit this year and add a few emoji for context. Generally, I have a few shows that I’m 100% going to watch. Then, there are those that I hope are great but haven’t decided on (generally new shows). Then, there are those I’m on the fence about. The schedule is heftier than I’d like, and I’m sure I’ll be trimming it down a bit.
