Fall is an underrated season. The leaves change, the weather becomes more tolerable, baseball gives way to football, and – best of all, for some – our favorite TV shows kick back into gear after a long hiatus. And that means we get new episodes of old favorites as well as a whole slew of brand new pilots.

The problem? We get a whole slew of brand new pilots. Fall is like a buffet of entertainment: tons of shows look promising, but if you try them all, it’s too overwhelming to enjoy.

Luckily, Punchline Magazine is here to help. We’ve compiled a list of all the network pilots for the fall starring all your favorite comedians. Like Kate Micucci? She’s on ABC’s Smothered. Fan of Nick Thune? He’s starring in NBC’s I Hate That I Love You.

Check out the nearly full list of comedians after the jump. Enjoy!
