A New Season and an Old

Fall 2005 Primetime Network Series Debut and Season Premiere Dates

With the new fall 2005 TV lineup already announced, here's both its rundown and one of 40 years ago, fall 1965, with which to compare the 2005 one. The fall of 1965 was the last one to air black-and-white programming, with about half the shows being in color, and it was, historically, the only fall in which the season premieres of the returning shows and the debuts of the new ones, collectively totalling 99, were all concentrated in one single week of September 13-19.

While I'm still on a more-or-less summer hiatus from this blog, updates and revisions have been and will continue to be ongoing when necessary. With CBS becoming the last network to announce its new season premiere dates, the list below is now complete for all networks.

As for other lineups from other years, check the Archive section below on your right for plenty more of them to peruse, which should keep you quite busy through what's left of the summer.
