Network Logjam: 20 New Series Week of Sept. 20

For those keeping score at home — or who don’t have dual-tuner TiVo, which is increasingly a must — here’s the current breakdown of new-series premieres on the broadcast networks for the fall.

And while the roster might look daunting, it’s actually down a bit from recent years, with Fox holding back several premieres and NBC’s “Love Bites” dropping out of the net’s fall lineup.

Still, perusing this roster does remind us that after the networks once questioned the wisdom of an official “premiere week,” they have pretty well gravitated back to that model. In addition, HBO will launch its eagerly anticipated drama “Boardwalk Empire” on Sept. 19 — heading into the thick of the networks’ push — while the CW gets an early jump with “Nikita” and “Hellcats” after Labor Day.

And not to seek sympathy or anything, but no matter how many of these you intend to sample, just remember: I have to watch all of them.
