The host of Late Night with Seth Meyers gave us 10 shows he can’t wait to see this fall. Not all of them are real, though. We challenge you to figure out which ones are the fake ones. Not the hardest thing you’ll do all day, but at least you’ll laugh while figuring it out.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I love this show, and Andy Samberg is one of my closest friends, yet he hates my dog. He genuinely thinks she looks like a rat when everyone else agrees she looks like an angel. Thankfully, the supporting cast of this show (the best ensemble on TV) is strong enough to carry this monster of a human being.

The Blueprint

Following in the tradition of The Blacklist and Blindspot, this show follows a man who wakes up in Central Park with a blueprint tattooed on his face. It’s a race against the clock to find out why. (Spoiler alert: He passed out and his friends did it as a prank.)

Thursday Night Football

I know I’m in the minority, but I think this is the year that football finally catches on with the American people. I’m confident it will do well enough to get picked up for another season.

Casterly High

In this prequel series to Game of Thrones, Cersei Lannister faces her biggest adversary yet…prom!

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Star Rachel Bloom was an intern at Saturday Night Live when I worked there. Although I have no memory of that, I find it hard to believe I didn’t somehow inspire her to create this excellent show.

The Last Man on Earth

One time Will Forte and I were in a hot tub in New Mexico with two women. But it’s not gross because I ended up marrying one of them! (That is a true story.)

Wynnifred Grinth Does the Dishes

If you liked Downton Abbey, you’ll love this new British import about domestic servant Wynnifred Grinth (played by the incomparable Grinnifer Wynth), who takes on love and loss all while trying to do the dishes.

Superstore - Season 1



You don’t have to make America (Ferrera) great again. She is great now. On this show.

Marvel’s Agents of CAA

All the heroes in the Marvel Universe are repped by the Creative Arts Agency. This show chronicles the phone calls when Thor’s agent tells him, “You’re killing it.”

Fresh Off The Boat

I don’t have a catchphrase, but if I did, it would be “Constance Wu is criminally underrated!”
