It’s never too early to start planning your weekly TV viewing. This week the major broadcast networks announce their fall schedule to advertisers in their TV upfronts in New York, giving fans a few things to look forward to when they return from summer vacation.

Get ready for even more reboots, thanks to the success of Will & Grace and (the initial success of)  Roseanne. Shows like Murphy Brown are coming back with the original cast, but we’ll get new versions of Magnum P.I., Charmed, and Roswell (as Roswell, New Mexico now).

Networks are even rescuing each other’s shows from cancellation. After Fox grabbed Last Man Standing from ABC, NBC grabbed Brooklyn Nine-Nine from Fox, scheduling it for midseason.

Here’s a look at the new fall schedules by network, including some cable updates that have accompanied the announcements of their broadcast brethren. We’ll update the schedule throughout the week as networks announce their new and returning shows.
