Fall 2006 reality show debut schedule

Just like last year, the networks are playing it safe this fall, only returning new series to their lineups. The CW will kick off its new life with Top Model, but there only one new reality show on broadcast television, FOX’s Celebrity Duets.

Below are the shows and their airtimes that have been announced for debuts this fall. This list will be updated frequently as new premiere dates are announced. All times are ET and p.m., unless otherwise noted. And since networks like to change their schedules just to mess with us, check your on-screen guide before DVRing.
