This fall, it’s ladies night every night on TV

Of the 26 new network series arriving this fall, at least 14 are directly pegged to female stars and/or lean heavily toward female-centric themes. The trend is reflected in dramas such as “Ringer” and “Prime Suspect,” and it’s especially evident on the comedy front, where Zooey Deschanel and Whitney Cummings lead a pack of estrogen-rich sitcoms.
