It’s that time of year again, folks.  The Fall TV season is upon us, which means our daily TV ratings rundown is back.  Most of the networks don’t start their new seasons until next week, but Fox got a jump on things last night.  Here’s a brief look at the ratings for Monday, September 16th:

  • Fox’s new series Sleepy Hollow debuted to a hefty 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demo and 10.05 million viewers, which marks the network’s best series premiere since 2007’s K-VilleSleepy Hollow was up 127% from the premiere of The Mob Doctor last fall and up 6% over the impressive debut of The Following this past January.  Next week is the true test, as we see how well the show holds its look-in audience.  Read Allison’s recap of the pilot here.
  • CBS’ much-maligned Under the Dome finished its first season with a healthy 2.8 rating and 11.84 million viewers.  Despite truly scathing reviews, the sci-fi series was a summer hit for CBS and will return next year for a second season.
  • Back on Fox, the season premiere of Bones scored a 2.2 rating in the demo and 7.53 million viewers, which is down 4% from last season’s premiere but up 5% from last season’s finale.

Comic-Con 2013 Schedule for Friday, July 19th Includes THE WORLD’S END, THE WALKING DEAD, ROBOCOP, GAME OF THRONES, & SPIDER-MAN 2

Yesterday we got a look at the rather tame Comic-Con 2013 schedule for Wednesday’s Preview Night and Thursday, and today SDCC has unveiled the full panel lineup for Friday, July 19th.  Last year was the first year that Comic-Con moved TV panels into Hall H for days other than Sunday, and after getting a look at Friday’s lineup, the Con is starting to look more and more like a TV convention.  While there are first-looks at The World’s End, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Kick-Ass 2, and Riddick to look forward to, the entire convention is packed with TV panels on Friday, including Hall H panels for The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and the Veronica Mars movie.

I’m baffled by the fact that the panel for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Joss Whedon is being held in Ballroom 20 and not Hall H, and at the same time as the Walking Dead panel no less.  Hit the jump to take a look at the highlights from Friday’s schedule.  Comic-Con 2013 runs from July 18th – July 21st.
