The end is in sight. With the calendar now firmly on the other side of Halloween, we’re into the home stretch of 2020. But before the overwhelming tide of year-end recaps and glances toward 2021, there’s still two more months’ worth of TV premieres to sift through.
As much as we’ve talked about the potential drain on new programming becoming available in the latter half of this past year, there’s still a steady stream of fresh seasons available for stateside viewers. Some of these November premieres are part of that growing pack of overseas imports, but there are also a number of series that have long been slotted as part of their respective networks’ year-end pushes.
Animated shows, updates of cinematic classics — and recent indie breakouts — food shows, dog shows, documentaries on the private lives of presidents, and even a good-old-fashioned multi-cam sitcom: All are ready to help audiences get through whatever the rest of November may bring.
To help plan out the next few weeks of TV watching, we’ve included synopses and basic viewing info for 20 of these new shows below. (And, as always, in case you’ve missed any of our past monthly roundups, you can find former editions for February, March, April, May, June, July, August, October, and our fall preview.)
