Why It's Worth Watching: Wyman and Abrams worked together on "Fringe," a beloved cult favorite that combined procedural drama with paranormal freakiness, so if there's anybody who could make a human-android buddy-cop drama something besides completely robotic, it's them. Premieres: Monday, Nov. 4 at 8/7c

The Michael J. Fox Show (NBC)

Who's involved: Michael J. Fox, Betsy Brandt, Wendell Pierce, Sam Laybourne, Alex Reid

What It's About: One of New York's most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox), put his career on hold after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. But now the stay-at-home dad is becoming restless, so his family and former boss find a way to coerce him back into the newsroom.

Why It's Worth Watching: Because Michael J. Fox is back. Do you really need more reasons to watch? Oh you do. Also, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in the first episode, "Breaking Bad" star Brandt plays Fox's wife, and the show will raise Parkinson's awareness: Win/win/win. Premieres: Thursday, Sep. 26 9/8c

The Millers (CBS)

Who's involved: Will Arnett, Beau Bridges, J.B. Smoove, Margo Martindale. Created by Greg Garcia

What It's About: Nathan Miller (Arnett) is a recently divorced local news reporter looking forward to the single life. Those dreams are dashed instantly when his father (Bridges), inspired by Nathan's news, leaves his wife (Martindale) of 43 years, who in turn moves in with Arnett's character.
