TV THIS WEEK: Minority Report premieres, Heroes returns, and more!

TV This Week - Minority Report

This week is a very exciting week of TV. The fall premieres are finally here, and among the highlight are the return of Heroes, the new edition of Minority ReportScream Queens and more. 

Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watch list?


Minority Report (FOX) Monday, 9 p.m. - "Pilot"

Series premiere! - At long last, we've arrived at Premiere Season, and we've got a glut of new shows to get through. Minority Report is easily among the most exciting, not just because it's a kind of remix of the Steven Spielberg film, but because it's also a perfect setup for a sci-fi procedural. You've got a Precog (Stark Sands) who's bent on using his powers for good even after his program has been dismantled, and a detective (Meagan Good) who's bent on solving crimes no matter what. It sounds like loads of fun, and if the trailers are a true indication of the show, it will be. Check out a preview below.


The Muppets (ABC) Tuesday, 8 p.m. - "Pig Girls Don't Cry"

Series premiere! - At long last, The Muppets are back on TV, and though we still don't know entirely what to expect from the new series, we do know that it's exciting. In this new Muppets world, Miss Piggy and Kermit have called it quits, the Muppets gang is trying to launch a new show while a behind-the-scenes crew films everything, and Piggy isn't so sure she wants to join up again. It has all the makings of great fun, but now we have to see if the people behind the show can make it happen. Check out a preview below.


Limitless (CBS) Tuesday, 10 p.m. - "Pilot"

Series premiere! - Morphing successful films into successful TV shows is nothing new. In fact, we have more than one this season, but Limitless remains among the most intriguing. What would you do if a pill could make you the smartest person on the planet? What would you do if that premise extended beyond a film and into a full season of televison? That's what we're waiting to find out, and the results will either be spectacular or very underwhelming. Check out a preview below.


Heroes Reborn (NBC) Thursday, 8 p.m.  - "Brave New World" and "Odessa"

Series premiere! - When it was first announced that NBC would be reviving its Heroes series with a new miniseries this fall, the news was widely met with yawns and shrugs. After all, this is a show that was a phenomenon in its early seasons, only to fizzle by the time it ended. What good could a revival do? Well, we're about to find out, for better or for worse. Check out a preview below.
