Sons of Anarchy

Cable networks kick off the Fall TV season in early September with a variety of reality series, scripted dramas and comedies. Later in the month, the broadcast networks join the fray with their new and returning series. And if you oly watch TV on your computer, YouTube and Netflix are launching new comedies this month as well. It's going to be a busy month for TV fanatics.
