Updated July 6 at 3 p.m.: CBS and the CW are setting up for fall, with a list of its fall premiere dates. 

On the CW, most of the superhero and-or supernatural shows ended with our heroes and antiheroes in peril making these dates important to a fangirl like me. But unlike a lot of the other networks, the CW premieres won't start in September; they will start the first week in October. Supergirl, formerly a citizen of CBS, will land on The CW on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

Speaking of CBS, the network is doing the most with special-length premiere episodes for the fall. 2 Broke Girls will open with an hour-long show on Oct. 10. Scorpion returns with a two-hour premiere on Oct. 3. And Survivor will have a 90-minute special to open its 33rd (!!!) season on Sept. 21.

Updated July 5 at 2:38 p.m.: FX announced its fall premiere dates Tuesday, following a recent spate of announcements from other networks.

But first things first, Tyrant returns July 6 at 9. 

Back to the fall ...

The highly anticipated Donald Glover comedy, Atlanta, will bow on Sept. 6 at 9 p.m. 

American Horror Story will return on Sept. 14 at 9 for the sixth installment of the horror anthology series. And Better Things, a comedy co-created by Louis C.K., will debut Sept. 8 at 9.

The Strain is returning on Aug. 28.

Previously: ABC announced premiere dates for its fall slate of TV shows last week, following NBC's announcement earlier in June. The dates stretch for an entire month in each case.

NBC's This Is Us, which the network hopes gains the same number of viewers as a series trailer that's been viewed more than 20 million times.

Kiefer Sutherland will return to series TV with Designated Survivor on Sept. 21. 

The run of season premieres will end Oct. 11 with American Housewife joining the suburban family lineup of The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat and The Real O'Neals.

Note: Scandal will return midseason. Also midseason are returning shows The Bachelor, The Catch and American Crime. New series for midseason will be creator Shonda Rhimes' fifth show for the network, Still Star-Crossed; Time After Time; Downward Dog; and Imaginary Mary.
