Eye-catching new season TV billboards around L.A. in February 2016...

Let's face it folks, there are just not enough hours in the day to keep up with all the new TV shows hitting the small screen these days, be it on network, cable or some streaming platform. Here's a collection of just some of the offerings trying to get you to tune in that were spied in the skies of L.A. in February 2016.

TV billboards
Kocktails with Khloe series premiere billboard
Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are like a bad smell you can't get rid off, but continue to make millions being reality stars. Now Khloe is hosting her own talk-show on FYI (the old Biography Channel), Kocktails with Khloe. It's lucky they didn't use her surname in the title as it could have been abbreviated to KKK, which nobody wants.
Cooper Barretts Guide to Surviving Life season 1 billboard
Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life made its debut in January with a provocative light-switch billboard and this new cast billboard heralded more episodes of the new sitcom this month.
11 22 63 series premiere Hulu billboard
Hulu's TV adaptation of Stephen King's time-traveling novel 11.22.63 was in the skies this month, with James Franco going back in time to the 1960s try and prevent the assassination of President JFK. Surely Stephen King must hold the record for the most TV and movie adaptations of his books, right?
Mad Dogs series premiere billboard
Another new series, this time streaming on Amazon this month, was Mad Dogs, which had this wonderfully surreal ad creative. This U.S. adaption of the U.K. original series sees a group of guys traveling to Belize to see an old friend, when things take a decidedly dark turn.
Hap and Leonard series premiere billboard
Another book series adaptation heading to the small screen is Sundance TV's Hap and Leonard, based on the novels of Joe R. Lansdale, which is set in the 1980s and stars James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams.
Giant Kings Prophets series premiere billboard
Over on ABC and the studio has caught the Biblical bug, with its new Of Kings and Prophets series based on the Books of Samuel, with dramatic David and Goliath imagery being key to its outdoor ad campaign.
The Family series premiere billboard
Another new ABC drama is The Family, with a returned missing child being the catalyst of the familial series, starring Joan Allen and Rupert Graves as the parents who have their son back after a decade opening up a whole can of worms and secrets.
Real O'Neals series premiere billboard
Family sitcoms always seem to be the staple of any new TV season and this Spring is no different with ABC continuing to break new ground with regards to diversity, after the likes of Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat, with their comedy The Real O' Neals, whose 16-year-old son comes out to his Catholic Chicago family.
Crowded series premiere billboard
From parents dealing with their gay son's announcement to other parents, this time empty-nesters, who have to cope when their adult daughters want to return home to live with them in Crowded. True Blood and The Good Wife's kooky Carrie Preston and Seinfeld's Patrick Warburton star in NBC's new sitcom.
James Burrows tribute Cast reunion Must See TV billboard
Speaking of sitcoms and NBC paid tribute to the career of James Burrows this month after directing 1,000 shows including the likes of Friends, Will & Grace, The big Bang Theory, Taxi, Cheers, Frasier and more besides. Sadly the cast reunion show was a real snooze-fest and a real missed opportunity, aside from informing me about the accomplished career of the sitcom director.
Little Big Shots series premiere billboard
Meanwhile they say never to work with animals or children, so good luck Steve Harvey with your new talent show, Little Big Shots. For me this show feels a little on the child pageant creepy.
Those Who Can't series premiere billboard
From kids to teachers, and TruTV debuted its first scripted comedy series, Those Who Can't this month.
Not Safe Nikki Glaser series premiere billboard
Over on Comedy Central, comic Nikki Glaser likes it when you watch her new Not Safe show all about sex talk.
Animals series premiere billboard
In HBO's new animated series Animals, you can get to see a different side of New York City's four-legged, winged and furry residents and their daily problems in the Big Apple.
Join or Die series premiere billboard
And Craig Ferguson was back on late-night TV with a historical spin in Join or Die, chatting with his celebrity guests and friends about important times and facts from America's past.
Fuller House series premiere billboard
Netflix was also mining the past this month and revisiting 80s and 90s sitcom Full House and seeing where all their lives (aside from the Olsen Twins) have led in Fuller House.
Chelsea Does series premiere billboard
And after her own late-night talk show, Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler had a new documentary-reality series over on Netflix where she explored important topics like race, drugs, marriage and the Silicon Valley world of high-tech innovations.
Hannibal Buress Comedy Camisado Netflix billboard
Meanwhile Hannibal Buress had this cool, trippy creative for his new Netflix stand-up comedy special, Comedy Camisado. The streaming service really has become a destination for documentary and live stand-up comedians.

These are just some of the new shows and special vying for your viewing attention, and I'm sure more will pop up in the weeks to come. These new series are also competing against returning TV show billboards trying to turn heads this month, plus all the movie and music billboards, fab fashion billboards and eclectic lifestyle outdoor ads crowding the L.A. skyline.

Like always I'll be back at the end of the month with more out-of-home roundups, until then let's hope the weather will be a bit more co-operative this month and make photographing all these billboards a bit easier.

Don't be a stranger...
