Television Show Draft US/Canada Network shows 2015-2016

Hello My Imaginary Friends,

Are you a non-sports geek/nerd/dork? Do you feel like you’re missing out when you hear about people playing Hockey/Football/Baseball/Soccer drafts?

(Cue infomercial voice.)I sure did! And that’s why I developed the Television Show Draft.

This draft only includes the Big Four American Networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX), The CW, and the Big Four Canadian Networks, (CBC, CTV, Global, and City)

But how does it work?


  1. Get a bunch of friends over to your house and watch all the trailers for this year’s new network television shows. (List below)
  2. Everyone Pays $5. (You can use pretend money)
  3. Divide the amount of shows by the amount of people. (There are 55 this year)
  4. Put everyone’s name in a hat, chip bowl, or other semi-spherical receptor.
  5. Pick a name from the receptor and that person gets first pick. Record what that person choses and have them pick the next name. Continue until everyone has an even number of shows picked.
  6. Give updates weekly or monthly for how well shows are doing. I recommend TV Line, TV By The Numbers, and Is My Show Cancelled for checking what is and what isn’t cancelled.
  7. At next year’s Draft give this year’s first place 50% of the money collected, Second place 30%, and Third place 20%.

And that’s it it’s just that simple. Below you’ll find the listings with links to the trailers or descriptions and the Grading scheme.
