Season Premiere Dates!

Hey, all! After three months of reality TV, our favorite scripted shows are FINALLY coming back and I absolutely can’t wait! So, here are the premiere dates (*** = the time or day has changed from last season):

 

Gotham***: Already Started! Now airs on Thursday at 8pm on FOX. I don’t watch this one anymore, but it looks like Bruce is wearing a mask this year, getting closer and closer to becoming you-know-who!

The Orville (NEW): Already Started! Airs on Thursday at 9pm on FOX. This is a brand new show and so far I love it! If you enjoyed the movie GalaxyQuest, then you’ll definitely dig this very funny, Star Trek-esque space adventure. As an added bonus, one of the stars is Adrianne Palicki, who played the first (and better) Kara on Smallville, as well as Jess on Supernatural. Highly recommended!

The Good Doctor (NEW): Starts Monday, September 25th, 10pm on ABC. New show about a surgeon with autism. Could be interesting. I’m planning on giving it a shot.

This Is Us: Starts Tuesday, September 26th, 9pm on NBC. Fantastic show! So fantastic, I’ll forgive last year’s bad finale. Are we ever going to find out how Jack died?

Chicago PD: Starts Wednesday, September 27th, 10pm on NBC. I’m wracking my brains and honestly can’t remember where this one left off. Can someone please remind me?

Chicago Fire***: Starts Thursday, September 28th, 10pm on NBC. I actually do remember where this one left off. A bunch of them were trapped in a burning building. Not sure who’ll make it. The commercials are making it seem as if Matt’s going to die. They could be misleading us, or preparing us for true heartbreak. Are the other two Chicago shows coming back? Anyone know?

Lucifer***: Starts Monday, October 2nd, 8pm on FOX. As you can probably tell from the image above, this is the one I’m most looking forward to!!!! He got kidnapped, he’s in the desert (???), he’s got wings…what the H3LL is going on? Can’t wait to find out. Also, I heard a rumor someone SUPER special is joining the cast. 🙂

The Mayor (NEW): Starts Tuesday, October 3rd, 9:30pm on ABC. New show about a young rapper who runs for mayor as a publicity stunt…and unexpectedly wins. And, since this guy actually cares about his community and wants to make a difference, he rises to the challenge. Sounds pretty good to me. I’ll give it a shot.

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (NEW): Starts Tuesday, October 3rd, 10pm on ABC. Average guy has to save the world, with help from an angel? Or something like that? Don’t know much about this one, but I like the lead actors enough to give it a shot.

Supergirl: Starts Monday, October 9th, 8pm on The CW. I lost track of this one a bit last season, but will definitely try to catch up this year. Gotta love GIRL POWER!!!

Supernatural: Starts Thursday, October 12th, 8pm on The CW. Lucifer, Mary and alt-Bobby are in another dimension. Castiel, Crowley, Rowena and Kelly Klein are all dead. Oh yeah, and the spawn of Satan was just born. Maybe some good things will happen in the Season 13 opener? Here’s hoping!

Happy watching, everybody! 🙂

Twitter Party Tomorrow for My Kind (of) America!

Hey everybody!

Chicken Soup for the Soul just released a brand new book, and they’re having a Twitter party tomorrow to celebrate! Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Kind (of) America features 101 stories about kindness in America.

My story, “Out of the Mouths of Strangers,” can be found on page 260. Writing this piece involved several very embarrassing trips down Memory Lane, but it was all worth it when I got to relive the feeling of sheer joy and gratitude at the end of the story. If you’re ever thinking about saying something really nice to someone, but you’re feeling shy or you’re not sure if you should, just go with your gut and say it. You won’t regret it and neither will the recipient of those kind words. 🙂

Whether it’s a grand act of heroism or something as simple as a homemade Valentine, kindness changes lives. It reminds us who we really are, deep down inside. Underneath all of our many differences–skin color, gender, religion, age, education level–we are all human beings. And we all, at one time or another, need to be reminded that someone cares.

So, check out the book! And come join us on Twitter tomorrow (Wednesday, September 6th) for the launch party! The party will run from 2-3pm ET, with the hashtag #MyKindAmerica. I will be there (@astheheroflies) along with many of the other authors and our awesome publisher, Amy Newmark!

Hope to see you there, and remember–kindness matters!
