Idiot Box

Fall into Fall

When’s the premiere?

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Welcome to September. Summer is over and Idiot Boxers can stop watching endless reruns, burn-off of already-canceled series and strange award shows we’ve never heard of. September is the official start of the fall TV season. So when are favorite old shows (CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”), potential new obsessions (ABC’s “Super Fun Night” with Rebel Wilson, ABC’s superheroic “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), trendy fantasies (FOX’s fairy tale-based “Sleepy Hollow,” ABC’s fairy tale-based “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” ) and suspiciously familiar retreads (CBS’ “Ironside,” CW’s “The Tomorrow People”) be premiering?
