One look at the September 2017 TV premieres calendar and you see how streaming services and traditional TV are amping up their war for viewers.

Netflix and other services launch the first volley early in the month while the cable network premieres start to trickle in. About midway through the month, after the Sept. 17 Emmy awards telecast, the traditional fall TV season begins with a flurry of season and new series premieres on the broadcast networks.

But the streaming services—mainly Netflix and Amazon—are relentless. Their premieres dot the entire calendar.

I’m not totally in love with many of the new broadcast network shows, so my wish list if spread out over cable channels and streaming services. 

I’m looking forward to “American Horror Story: Cult,” “Versailles,” “Outlander,” “The Orville,” “Top of the Lake: China Girl,” “One Mississippi,” “Beauty and the Baker,” “Liar,” “Vice Principals,” “Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father,” “Transparent,” “Lethal Weapon,” “Rosehaven,” “Tin Star,” “Will & Grace,” “Marvel’s Inhumans” and “This Is Us.”

The show I am most excited to see, “Star Trek Discovery,” has its premiere on CBS and then moves to its streaming service, CBS All Access. Will I shell out more cash for another streaming service to watch it? We’ll have to see how I feel after the premiere. (I’m sure a lot of you are asking yourselves the same thing.)

What will you watch? I’ll keep adding to the September 2017 TV premieres calendar as I learn of more shows.
