9 fall reality TV shows I’m most looking forward to

Fall television has arrived: CBS’s Survivor returns at long last, and so do shows from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars to Fox’s The Masked Singer, Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules to Bravo’s new Winter House.

More than 90 reality TV shows premiere over the next two months, and among those are some I’m really looking forward to, starting with Survivor 41. Below you’ll find that list: nine shows that I’m most excited to watch this fall.

After I compiled this list, I realized there aren’t many brand-new shows, but that’s true of fall reality TV: the shows that have been announced so far are mostly returning for new seasons.

Perhaps I’m still gravitating toward the familiar for comfort; after all, I can’t stop watching The Golden Girls and 1990s sitcoms. And perhaps I’ll be surprised. As I looked over the fall premieres, I did see some new series that I’ll absolutely check out, and they may surprise and delight me, just as some of the ones on this list might turn out to be disappointing.

As the air gets cooler, there will undoubtedly be even more shows added to the schedule. But for now, here’s what’s definitely on my fall DVR.
