Setting Cable’s Fall Lineup

Author:
Updated:
Original:

The following is a list of upcoming original cable programming from Sept. 17 through Dec. 31, 2012. “Original programming” means brand-new premieres, no acquired shows or content available via U.S. broadcast TV, home video or in movie theaters. Specials spun off existing series are included, but new episodes of established series do not qualify. The list, which includes mostly basic-cable networks with large distribution, as well as some premium networks, was compiled by Leslie Jaye Goff.
