A Guide To Navigating TV’s Biggest Fall Yet

In an effort to alleviate option paralysis as best we can, here are some top picks for shows to watch this fall, perhaps the industry’s biggest season yet.


Still reeling from the streaming revolution, television sits on the brink of its most consequential fall season yet. The “pluses” are coming. Both Apple and Disney will launch their streaming services in November, forcing into clarity a picture of what the splintered landscape beyond Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime will look like. (Probably bundling.)

Apple TV+ launches on Nov. 1, at the comparatively low monthly price of $4.99. Disney+ will launch Nov. 12 at the cost of $6.99. They will be followed in the spring by HBOMax and NBCUniversal’s streaming service. It’s the revolution within the revolution.

Don’t forget the networks, basic cable, and premium offerings, which plenty of people still watch the old fashioned way. It’s enough to make your head spin. In an effort to alleviate option paralysis as best we can, here are some top picks from every category. Stay strong, and may the Golden Age live on. (Just wait until Quibi hits.)
