9:00 - New Show
10:00 - Quantico

Monday

10:00 - Castle (final season?)/New Show

Friday
8:00 - Last Man Standing
8:30 - Dr. Ken
9:00 - Shark Tank/What Would You Do?/Shark Tank
10:00 - 20/20

Analysis: With the news that Scandal is being held for midseason and has an episode order of 16 episodes, TGIT is going to look a heck of a lot different. My suggestion: put Secrets & Lies at the 9pm hour until the winter time.

For Tuesday, I had to move Modern Family, because at some point, Tuesdays need to be fixed. 

CBS
Sunday
7:00 - 60 Minutes
8:00 - Madam Secretary
9:00 - NCIS: Los Angeles
10:00 - Elementary (final season?)

Monday
8:00 - The Big Bang Theory (during TNF)/Supergirl
8:30 (during TNF) - New Comedy
9:00 - Scorpion
10:00 - Limitless

Tuesday
8:00 - NCIS 
9:00 - NCIS: New Orleans
10:00 - New Show

Wednesday 
8:00 - Survivor
9:00 - Criminal Minds
10:00 - Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

10:00 - New Drama

Friday
8:00 - The Amazing Race/Undercover Boss/The Amazing Race
9:00 - Hawaii Five-0
10:00 - Blue Bloods

Analysis: Everything is pretty much the same, except that NCIS: Los Angeles may probably move to the Sunday syndication farm and that Limitless moves to Mondays.

CW
Monday
8:00 - The Vampire Diaries (final season)
9:00 - The Originals

Tuesday
8:00 - The Flash
9:00 - New Show

Wednesday
8:00 - Arrow
9:00 - Supernatural

Thursday 
8:00 -  DC's Legends of Tomorrow
9:00 -  iZombie

Friday
8:00 - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
9:00 - Jane the Virgin

I thought about keeping Jane the Virgin for a third time on Mondays, then I realized something was amiss. The reason why I demoted the Crazy Ex and Jane the Virgin combo to Fridays is that ratings are too low for Mondays and it will probably anger the affiliates if they remained. On Fridays, the expectations are lower. Not to mention, those shows need to air in fall for awards consideration. Last time I checked, awards can be earned on Fridays. Not all shows will be receiving full season orders. This schedule I am proposing is not too terrible. One new show for fall due to schedule space. The only downside to this is that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be facing football. Also, the possibility of the CW cleaning house leaves me to leave The 100 unscheduled.

FOX
Sunday
7:00 - Animated Reruns/The OT
7:30 - Bob's Burgers
8:00 - The Simpsons
8:30 - Family Guy
9:00 - Son of Zorn
9:30 - The Last Man on Earth

Monday
8:00 - Gotham
9:00 - Lucifer

Tuesday
8:00 - New Girl
8:30 - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
9:00 - Scream Queens

Wednesday
8:00 - Star
9:00 - Empire

Thursday
8:00 - Rosewood
9:00 - Bones or New Drama

Friday
8:00 - MasterChef Junior
9:00 - World's Funniest

Honestly, this is not the best schedule for me to come up with. My guess is that it will be more of the low rated Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday lineups. 

NBC
Sunday
8:00 - Little Big Shots
9:00 - Superstore
9:30 - New Comedy
10:00 - Dateline

Monday
8:00 - The Voice
10:00 - New Drama

Tuesday 
8:00 - The Voice
9:00 - Chicago Med
10:00 - Chicago Fire

Wednesday 
8:00 - New Drama
9:00 - Law & Order: SVU
10:00 - Chicago PD

Thursday 
8:00 - The Blacklist
9:00 - Blindspot
10:00 - Shades of Blue

Friday
8:00 - The Mysteries of Laura
9:00 - Dateline

Grimm's episode order will be thirteen episodes. I decided to demote it to midseason. The Carmichael Show may probably need to go back to being a summer comedy. The jury is still out for new shows.

Overall, I think that these schedules are okay for this fall, but I am not confident on them by any means. I won't be surprised if my predictions turn out to be incorrect.

Any suggestions?
