TV Returns – 2016 Fall TV DVR Guide

Summer is coming to a close and (in some areas of the country at least) Fall is almost here. That means the return of everything Pumpkin Spice and, much more importantly, the new Fall TV Season! Luckily, it also marks the return of our annual DVR Guide!

You may not know it, but you TV fans have some work to do and you’ve got to get it taken care of ASAP. Your DVR settings from last year simply aren’t going to work and it’s time for some updates. Some of your old shows are out (Castle, Limitless), some shows have moved times and/or channels (Supergirl) and there are 38 NEW shows that you might want to check out.


Enter the 2016 Fall TV DVR Guide. We’ve got just the thing to help you through the changes and it’s FREE!

Give your DVR(s) the overhaul it so desperately needs. Get rid of the old, add in the new and make sure you don’t have too many conflicts on those busy TV nights (Sunday is particularly troublesome). We’ve done the research and included every show we could find. Now it’s up to you.


Our DVR Guide covers prime-time TV for every day of the week, but there are some things to be aware of. Here’s a quick preview/snapshot:

2016 - Fall TV - DVR Guide - snapshot

  1. Broadcast Channels – Traditional channels like NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX & the CW
  2. Cable Networks – there are too many to list here, but we’ve got you covered with networks like FX, AMC, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Comedy Central, SyFy, etc.
  3. Premiere Dates – each show is labeled with it’s premiere date*
  4. New Shows – a gold bar indicates a new show that you probably don’t have on your DVR yet
  • *  – Several stations have shows premiering on a special night, then moving to the normal time-slot for the remainder of the season. This is particularly confusing, so pay close attention.



OK – we’ve spent enough time prepping you and you are ready for the guide.
