#TheBigDeal: September 2022

September is here and Fall is in the air... and so are the footballs! AFN kicks off another season of college and pro football as we begin the quest towards CFP's Championship and the Super Bowl! Football isn't the only sports highlighting September. The tennis world descends on Flushing Meadow, New York for the 2022 rendition of the U.S. Open. Baseball makes its way towards the playoffs with wildcard spots still up for grabs!

Fall also means a new lineup of primetime television from the networks and studios. With our new and returning series AFN has everything from true crime investigative reporting to drama shows featuring crime ripped from the headlines.

It's not all crime, doom and gloom. Bob still hearts Abishola, Bart Simpson is still wreaking havoc in Springfield, and all's good in The Neighborhood. September also kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month featuring movies highlighting the celebration.

For more information on all of AFN TV's programming, including airtimes in your area – be sure to check our schedule.
