So without further adieu, (you can check the full list here) the hottest shows this spring you need to clear your schedule for:
24: Live Another Day, Fox, Monday, May 5 at 8ET — Well, he’s baaack. Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and the other familiar faces you know from the 24 universe bring their roles back to prime time in this 12-hour limited event series. Set in London and now subtitled Live Another Day, the continuation of the popular thriller picks up 4 years after the events of the Season Eight finale. You probably already know all about this one, so just get ready to start watching.
American Dream Builders, NBC, Sunday, March 23 at 8ET — Nate Berkus hosts this new reality series where designers, architects, builders and outdoor landscapers throw their paint-splattered hats and green thumbs into the arena for a series of challenges and competitions. The lucky finalists will each have to design and renovate an entire home, with America voting on the winner.
Bad Teacher, CBS, Thursday, April 24 at 8ET — This flick started out as a movie with Cameron Diaz. Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor) is a recently divorced trophy wife who finds her way into a teaching job at a wealthy-kids school in order to bag a rich, single dad. Sarah Gilbert, Ryan Hansen, David Alan Grier and Kristin Davis co-star. This one should get hot and heavy.
Black Box, ABC, Thursday, April 24 at 10ET — Kelly Reilly (from ‘Flight’) stars as Dr. Catherine Black, a world renowned neurologist who researches mysteries of the brain while also hiding her own mental illness: She’s bipolar. Vanessa Redgrave, David Ajala, Ditch Davey, Terry Kinney, Ali Wong, Laura Fraser, David Chisum, and Siobhan Williams star in this one.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Fox, Sunday, March 9 at 9ET — It;s back! This is definitely the most anticipated on the list. It’s already started, but you can still catch them all. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts this reboot of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage with an updated look at the universe as we know it as normal laymen.
