Fall TV preview 2016: 6 worst new network shows
"Conviction" and "Pure Genius" sink to the bottom of the prime-time barrel this fall. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Each season provides no shortage of candidates for spots at the bottom of the prime-time barrel. In no particular order, here are the rank rookies of the fall season. These are the noxious, hold-your-nose, avoid-at-all-costs, call-the-EPA stinkers: "Notorious" (ABC): "Ludicrous" would be a better title for this witless drama based on the lives of cable news producer Wendy Walker and lawyer Mark Geragos. "Pure Genius" (CBS): For a show about super-smart doctors at a super-smart medical facility, it's pretty dumb . . . and smug . . . and stilted. "Timeless" (NBC): The producers might wish they could travel back in time and start with building material sturdier than cardboard. "Man With a Plan" (CBS): The likable Matt LeBlanc is the man stuck in a thoroughly unlikable comedy. "The Great Indoors" (CBS): Where stale jokes meet stereotypes. "Conviction" (ABC): The insipid drama about a former first daughter may be in last place in terms of quality this fall.

It's the Autumn Equinox, and we're going to reach 84 degrees
This year we are 15 percent warmer than the average high temperature on the Autumn Equinox in Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio - It's the first day of astronomical Fall (as opposed to meteorological Fall which begins Sept 1.), and we're going to reach a steamy 84 degrees in Cleveland. But what's normal for us on the Autumn Equinox? Nothing near where we are this year. The 2000-2015 average high temperature is 71.6 degrees, and the average low temperature is 53.6 degrees. This year? We are going to reach 84 degrees, which is 17 percent warmer than average. Even our low temperature was much warmer than average, with this morning's low of 62 degrees -- over 15 percent hotter than average. Kelly Reardon, cleveland.com  Now, the Autumn Equinox changes between Sept. 22 and 23. The record high temperature for Sept. 22 is 92 degrees, set in 1895 - thankfully we're not quite there. The record high temperature for Sept. 23 is 89 degrees, set in 2010, not too far from what we're going to reach today. This is following the trend of August tying the hottest on record for Cleveland. August 2016 tied for the hottest on record for Cleveland, matching the previous record set in 1947 This hot weather is also expected to suppress the vibrant fall foliage colors we normally get to enjoy. Fall foliage prediction 2016: Less vibrant colors expected due to hot summer and heavy drought What do you think? Do you love or hate this hot weather?
