Premieres Nov. 5 at 9:30

Fans of Glee and Psych can look forward to the pairing of Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson in this new comedy about  dermatologist Allison Fuller and her questionable guardian angel Amy– as the title suggests, Amy may be a crazy person masquerading as an angel, yet that doesn’t explain all the things she knows about Allison’s life since childhood. The show’s creator, Tad Quill, asked, What would it be like if a guardian angel actually came into your life? … You would probably think that person was crazy. But a small part of you would hope that was true, because who wouldn’t want a guardian angel?” If all these questions don’t satisfy you, catch the show on Thursdays at 9:30 to discover the truth.

This hour-long American Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway will bring everybody’s favorite comedian, magician, and triple threat back to TV as the host of his own variety show. Its schedule includes guest appearances, performances, comedy skits, and more. While the network hasn’t been more specific on what to expect, with Neil Patrick Harris at the helm, the show can’t be too bad. After all, he’s hosted the Emmys, the Tonys, and the Academy Awards, so hosting a variety show should be old hat for him. Tune in Tuesdays at 10 to catch him in action.

Fans of Chicago Fire and Chicago PD can look forward to the newest series in the franchise about (what else?) the busy lives of the hospital workers in one of America’s largest cities. The characters from the other two series will guest star on occasion, but there will also be a whole new cast once again reinventing the hospital trope. This hour-long drama will probably be as captivating as its predecessors, so catch it Tuesdays at 10.

Anyone who has watched Full House or Drake and Josh should be thrilled at John Stamos and Josh Peck’s return to TV as a father-son duo in this new sitcom. The twist? Stamos’s character, Jimmy Martino, a recently divorced restaurant owner, didn’t know he had a son, never mind a granddaughter. Whatever the show’s plot cliches, the talent on camera is sure to make it worthwhile, so check it out on Tuesdays at 8.
