A new fall season means an onslaught of new shows ordered by all of the top networks and as always it is up to viewers to decipher which ones are worth the watch. Well, many are willing to bet that Fox has a definite hit in their new show Pitch, as anticipation for the show is well above many others making their fall debut. Here is everything you need to know about Pitch before taking a swing at what is sure to be Fox’s next big hit!
8. Premiere Night
Pitch will finally be making its way to the small-screen with its premiere on Thursday, September 22, at 9 p.m. on Fox. As it turns out, the show has a lot to be thankful for beginning with that particular spot in the the Thursday night lineup on the network. The show wasn’t actually set to premiere until 2017 because they didn’t want to be competing with ABC’s Scandal, but because of Scandal star Kerry Washington’s pregnancy, that show’s premiere was moved to midseason. The move landed Fox with “an opportunity and a time slot to grab viewers looking for a strong-female-led show in the fall.” “The idea of putting it up against a juggernaut with female viewers like Scandal was not appealing to us,” Fox’s chairman Dana Walden stated. It also doesn’t hurt that Pitch is now airing in the month prior to the World Series which is also aired by Fox.
