Fall 2015 TV Guide for Nerds

Screen Shot 2015-09-15 at 11.22.59 PM

As summer comes to a close, the powers-that-be at the cable and network television stations (and let’s not forget the burgeoning online and on-demand TV original content as well) are ready to unleash a wave of brand-new shows and returning fan favorites.  Will you and your DVR have the time, capacity, and dedication to be like a Pokemon master and catch ‘em all?

If you do find yourself able to watch every single show that’s skewed towards the sci-fi, fantasy, super-hero, horror, and pop-culture-entertainment genres, then you likely either don’t have a job and live in some type of underground dwelling or are a trophy-partner, Real Housewife/Husband of <<Insert Major City Name Here>> type.  For the rest of us “normal” folks, however, choosing what to commit our precious free time and fan fervor to can be a daunting task; heck, there’s such an overload of stuff coming our way in the next few weeks that you may not even know about everything or when it’s going to start coming at you!  Fortunately, NerdBastards has got you covered.

Here, in chronological order, is a list of all the Nerd-centric shows that we can think of, along with which network will be showing them, through the end of the year.  NEW indicates that the show is in its first season and a fresh entrant to the TV battlefield, while the RETURNING tag tells you that you’re looking at a show that’s continuing on its already-begun entertainment journey.  The dates are pretty much rock-solid confirmed, but check your local listings for what time the show is airing in your neck of the woods.
