Minority Report

NBCUniversal

It’s been a bad week for Nick and Vanessa Lachey. After Ohio voters Tuesday rejected the legalized marijuana ballot issue promoted by Nick, NBC Universal shut down Vanessa’s “Truth Be Told” new fall sitcom after three telecasts.

Variety says the set was dismantled this week for “Truth Be Told,” which starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tone Bell, Bresha Webb and Lachey as married couples and neighbors.  

Emptying the set means the show is essentially canceled.

 The 2015-16 TV season arrives this week with many of your returning favorites and most of the highly anticipated new series: “Scream Queens,” “The Muppets,” “Heroes Reborn,” “Limitless” and “The Player.”

The first week ends Sunday with a goodbye to a long-time favorite, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” in a two-hour CBS movie.

Below is my list of new fall series (titles in bold italic) and returning shows this week. All returning series are season premieres, unless noted.

If your favorite show doesn’t return this week, here’s my list of Fall TV premiere dates.

It’s hard to settle on any one trend for the 2015-2016 TV season. Pick one:

SUPER HEROES: Get ready for more super heroes: NBC’s “Heroes Reborn” and CBS’ “Supergirl” join “Gotham,” “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”  By next spring you’ll also see “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” on the CW, and more of ABC’s “Marvel's Agent Carter.”

REVIVALS: Prepare for more revivals: “The Muppets” (ABC) and “Heroes Reborn” (NBC) this fall, and reboots of “The X-Files,” (Fox), “Fuller House” (Netflix), “Twin Peaks” (Showtime) and more of “The Odd Couple” (CBS) early next year.

MOVIE ADAPTATIONS: Watch how big-screen movies get revamped for the big screen in your home: CBS’ “Limitless,” from the 2011 Bradley Cooper film about the pill which enhances brain power, and a new version of Stephen Spielberg’s “Minority Report” (Fox). Coming to TV at midseason are “Rush Hour” (CBS) and “Uncle Buck” (ABC).

SPIN-OFFS: You’ve got to have a spin-off, and NBC has one.
