November is a time for football, turkey, and Black Friday bargains; however, I’m enthusiastic to report that two shows, at least, will be returning to our TV sets next month that I’m particularly excited about.
While there won’t be much kicking off next month, check out a few of the planned November 2014 TV premieres that will help save us from a month chock-full of food & mid-term elections.
White Collar, Thursdays on USA (beginning 11/6)
The last of the “golden days” of USA dramas (Psych, Burn Notice, White Collar) will conclude its six-year run with a final season consisting of just six episodes. The final season will pick up where last year left off; Neal Caffrey has disappeared (sans tracking anklet) &, undoubtedly, it’s going to be on Agent Burke to locate his missing CI. According to Entertainment Weekly, USA president Chris McCumber promises a “shocking” ending to the series (though I doubt it can be any more surprising than seeing Kate’s plane explode a few seasons back…unless, of course, she didn’t really die(??))
The Newsroom, Sundays on HBO (beginning 11/9)
Picking up following the series conclusion of Boardwalk Empire with (another) six-episode final season, Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom will focus on the Boston Marathon bombing and wrapping-up the events at ACN. Personally, I’ve enjoyed the brief time we’ve had with Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston & cast– but, all good things must come to an end (some, just much, much sooner than they should IMO).
Other November 2014 TV premiere dates to keep in mind (check local listings for showtimes):
- Covert Affairs, 11/6 on USA
- MasterChef Junior, 11/7 on Fox
- The Comeback, 11/9 on HBO
- Getting On, 11/9 on HBO
- State of Affairs, 11/17 on NBC
- Hell on Wheels, 11/22 on AMC
- Ascension, 11/24 on SyFy
Update 11/4: Deadline has just confirmed that The Mentalist, created by Gotham‘s Bruno Heller, will kick off its final 13-episode season on November 30th.
