Fall TV preview 2016: 15 most promising new fall shows
FX's "Better Things," Netflix's "Luke Cage," Amazon's "Good Girls Revolt," Fox's "Pitch" and the CW's "Frequency" are among the 15 brightest fall newcomers. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Critics have only seen the pilot episodes for most new fall TV shows, so there's not enough evidence to conclusively identify the best new shows. But here are 15 newcomers from across the programming spectrum that look incredibly promising. "Pitch" (Fox, premiering Thursday, Sept. 22): Kylie Bunbury is a young star to watch in this engaging drama about the first woman to pitch for a Major League Baseball team. "The Exorcist" (Fox, premiering Friday, Sept. 23): It's a scary and suspenseful addition to TV's robust horror field. "Better Things" (FX, premiered Sept. 8): Co-created by Louis C.K., this wonderfully hard-edged comedy stars Pamela Adlon as a divorced and struggling actress with three children - and the struggle is evident in every scene. "Frequency" (The CW, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 5): Although a reworking of the 2000 film starring Jim Caviezel, the riveting drama starring Peyton List feels remarkably fresh and smart. "Marvel's Luke Cage" (Netflix, premiering Friday, Sept. 30): Marvel has another winner with this series starring Mike Colter as Luke Cage, the fugitive rebuilding his life in Harlem. "Good Girls Revolt" (Amazon, premiering Friday, Oct. 28): Set in the 1960s, this stylish drama stars Joy Bryant as Eleanor Holmes Norton, the lawyer hired to represent women working at Newsday. "Atlanta" (FX, premiered Sept. 6): Donald Glover ("Community") created this incredibly complex and clever comedy-drama mix set around the Atlanta rap scene (he plays Earn, a rap manager with big dreams and big obstacles). "Queen Sugar" (OWN, premiered Sept. 6): Oprah Winfrey's channel has its strongest scripted show yet with this drama about three siblings (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Rutina Wesley and Kofi Siriboe) reuniting at their father's Louisiana sugar plantation. "This Is Us" (NBC, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 20): The feel-good drama follows four storylines that ultimately connect (making an emotional connection with viewers). "Chance" (Hulu, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 19): Hugh Laurie has found another marvelous TV role, playing a San Francisco forensic neuropsychiatrist in this series based on the novel by Kem Nunn. "The Good Place" (NBC, premiering Monday, Sept. 19): The pilot episode is better than good, providing winning roles for Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. "One Mississippi" (Amazon, premiering Friday, Sept. 9): Comedian Tig Notaro plays a fictionalized version of herself, traveling home to Mississippi after the death of her mother. "The Crown" (Netflix, premiering Friday, Nov. 4): Claire Foy has top billing in this 10-part British-American series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. "Designated Survivor" (ABC, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21): The scripts need work, but another strong prime-time vehicle for Kiefer Sutherland. "High Maintenance" (HBO, premiering Friday, Sept. 16): The web series about a nameless marijuana delivery man becomes an HBO series, and a pretty good one, if a times a little slow and choppy.

Humvee stolen from Ohio National Guard Armory in Stow
The military-grade, desert tan Humvee was taken overnight Tuesday from the armory in Stow, authorities say. STOW, Ohio -- A Humvee was stolen from the Ohio National Guard Armory in Stow, officials said Thursday. The military-grade desert tan Humvee was stolen late Tuesday or early Wednesday, Ohio National Guard spokeswoman Stephanie Beougher said. The State Highway Patrol, which is investigating the theft, discovered that the thieves cut through a chain link fence sometime to enter the area where the Humvees are stored. The Humvee was locked, but the thieves broke into it and drove away, the Highway Patrol said in a news release. The Humvee has distinct bumper numbers 174 and 1-145 near its left tail light and HQ-51 near the right tail light, the patrol says. State patrol investigators have not identified any suspects or witnesses. Anyone who may know where the Humvee is should call the Ohio State Highway Patrol at 216-265-1677 or dial #677.
