FOX has had a great primetime line up this season, and I’m anxious to see what they’ve got planned for the fall. The adaptation of Sleepy Hallow should be great to watch; I’m excited to see Enlisted as well. Unfortunately I think I’m going to miss out on watching both shows live from home because I will be working nights at DISH this fall so I won’t get home in time. Thankfully however, I’ll still be able to tune in during my commute on my iPad. I’ve got the DISH Anywhere app installed so I can stream FOX live as it airs, or any show from my home DVR, to my iPad wherever I go with internet access.

Well the one pilot I was really hoping for The List is not on here. I may check out Gang Related.
