With the new fall season upon us, there is a flood of shows are coming in the next few months. While some will stay, some will be cancelled after a season or two. Hence, it is extremely difficult to judge a show just watching a pilot episode.
Below, we have rounded up five new TV shows you should be watching this fall, based on its cast, storyline, and makers.

For 10 years on The Big Bang Theory, audiences have come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper.

The show will air on Comedy Central in India on September 29.
The Good Doctor (September 25, ABC)
Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore, Bates Motel), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital's surgical unit.

The show will air on Colors Infinity in India on October 3.

From 20th Century Fox Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Gettin' Rad Productions, a cynical skeptic (Craig Robinson), and a genius "true believer" in the paranormal (Adam Scott), are recruited by a secret government agency to look into the rampant "unexplained" activity in Los Angeles -- all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.
