For a TV fan, few times of year are worse than August. Nearly all summer shows have come to an end; you've run out of things to watch on Netflix; the memories of last year's series have almost faded away. Even a weirdly-timed Emmy Awards can't stop the slump. The only thing keeping us going? The promise of tons of new and returning shows just around the corner.
