7 TV Shows to Watch This October
It's officially fall and you finally have an excuse to stay inside and watch all of the TV (not that you ever really needed one). This month's offerings will keep you busy for a while. From a new Paul Rudd project to HBO's latest and a modern update to Nancy Drew, there's too much good television brewing to even think about going outside. Keep reading for a preview of what to expect this October.
Modern Love (Oct. 18, Amazon Prime)
An anthology series based on the New York Times column of the same name, Modern Love celebrates and explores love in all its forms, with an all-star ensemble that includes Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, and more.
Nancy Drew (Oct. 9, The CW)
The creative team behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl is back with the newest iteration of teen detective Nancy Drew. With a mix of romance and mystery, and a slate of fresh 20-something faces, it's possible that the show could soon reach the cult status of fellow CW series Riverdale.

In this new Netflix dramedy, Miles (Paul Rudd) undergoes a treatment that will make him a better person. It works. The only downside?
