Well... it is that time again ladies and gentlemen! The end of summer is nearly here, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises have come and conquered and the hum drum days of shitty summer TV are coming to an end (even though I am a fan of Franklin & Bash and the new Sullivan & Son actually seems to be not bad, a vast improvement over the terrible Men At Work)

So far, of all the new shows you listed, I'm looking forward to Last Resort and Vegas and maybe 666 Park Avenue though that is mostly because of Terry O'Quinn than for the show itself.

Of all of FOX's new shows, the only one that potentially intrigues me is The Mob Doctor. Even though the premise, a doctor being forced to work for the mob, is similar to the David Duchovney movie Playing God, it still has lots of potential IMO.

I love Matthew Perry. Here's hoping he has FINALLY found a successful post Friends show. I will definitely give his show a try.

The pairing of JJ Abrams and Eric Kripke alone is enough to make me give Revolution a try. I know some people were turned off by the trailer of the show, but I think there is still potential.

And I may give Chicago Fire a try. Jesse Spencer was fantastic on House. Looking forward to him being on this new show.

I am not really sure what I am looking forward to.

I think the 666 Park Avenue looks stupid.

Elementary might be good, I do love Jonny Lee Miller

Animal Practice I will watch for a few reasons, one of which is I know one of the leads and she is super hilarious! And I love Weeds and this show stars Uncle Andy from Weeds! Although, I was never a fan of Bobby Lee's... so we shall see!

The Mob Doctor looks eh... for whatever reason, that lead chick, I just don't like her! When I see her, I automatically know I pry wont watch the show cuz there is just something about her I don't like!

The Mindy Project I will watch and hope it isnt stupid as shit.

And The Neighbors I may catch as it is sandwiched between 2 shows I love (Middle and Modern Family)

It seems they are holding Raising Hope for a midseason... that show is so insanely hilarious, it deserves a full season.

I will try and find the Cable Premiere dates and post those, I know my personal favorite show currently on the air It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia comes back in September. SOuth Park is back in October. The League also is back in September. American Horror Story also in October. Dexter is September 30.

All in all, not a whole lot to get excited about, but I like that, it means I can simply continue watching the shows I am already invested in:

The Middle
Modern family
How I Met Your Mother
Hawaii 5.0
The Big Bang Theory
Bob's Burgers
The Office
Parks & Rec
Community
30 Rock
and of course: Football! (GO NINERS!!!!!!!!)

I don't know about Elementary. I like Johnny Lee Miller too. He was fantastic in Eli Stone. But, between the BBC series and the RDJ/Jude Law/Guy Ritchie movies, do we really need another version of Sherlock Holmes?


This season as a whole isn't looking that great. But my top 5 are:

1. Last Resort (ABC)
2. Arrow (CW)
3. Vegas (CBS)
4. Revolution (NBC)
5. The Mob Doctor (FOX)

Unless I'm forgetting something this is definitely my top 5 new shows I'm looking forward to.

They keep trying to compare it to Bourne. It looks pretty cool. And Katie Cassidy is in it and I heart her.

It's a shame you don't watch anything on the CW. Supernatural and Nikita are super cool shows.


Going down each night, here is how my schedule is looking like, provided that work doesn't get in the way, which it likely will.


MONDAYs:

8PM: Bones
9PM: Mob Doctor
10PM: Hawaii Five-O (live), Revolution (online)

TUESDAYs:

8PM: Arrow
9PM: Supernatural
10PM: Chicago Fire/Nashville (if they end up good)

WEDNESDAYs:

8PM: Nothing of interest
9PM: NCIS: LA
10PM: Vegas

THURSDAYs:

8PM: Last Resort
9PM: Person of Interest (Parks and Recreation online)
10PM: Elementary, I guess but nothing if it's not good


FRIDAYs:

8PM: Touch (unless it hasn't improved, then nothing)
9PM: Fringe (Nikita online)
10PM: Blue Bloods


SUNDAYs:

8PM: Once Upon a Time
9PM: The Good Wife (live), Revenge (online)
10PM: 666 Park Avenue

Haha.. good luck dude! I generally don't watch new shows their first seasons... well, Hour long Shows at least... cuz if I end up liking a show, i get pissed when it is canceled

(I have been burned by Eli Stone and The Defenders.. 2 of my favorite shows from seasons past that got unjustly canceled... Franklin & Bash has sort of taken up Defenders mantle, in a bit more juvenile way... and I miss Jurnee Smollett... she was a little girl who was on Full House (A friend of Stephanie's) who grew up to be smoking hot, and was a regular on Defenders!)

When I read what the producer's plans were to be eventually for Eli Stone, I was glad it was canceled. Better for the show to die while still great before the mess they were going to turn it into.

I don't remember what those plans were other than killing than making Eli famous (which sounded promising) and then killing off Maggie (which did not) and bringing back the Katie Holmes character. But I do remember thinking ugh, thank god the show was canceled. I liked Katie Holmes's character in Eli Stone, but I didn't want her replacing Maggie.

Elementary kind of seems House-ish to me. I know there's the Holmes connection but mostly that they are making his addiction a big part of the character. I'm only going by the description above though. It sounds like this brilliant addict professional who's probably going to butt heads with the brass but will still get results.

Is Shark Tank really popular? I'm surprised to see that and Whitney back because I thought both weren't liked.

Oh ya.. that would not have worked to kill off Maggie!

They did tie things together and give a satisfying conclusion to the series. But ya, Katy Holmes isn't the greatest actress, certainly not better than the girl that played Maggie (nor Hotter, if memory serves the girl that played Maggie was quite hot)!

As for Shark Tank, I think it pulls down decent ratings on it's friday night time slot... nothing earth shattering, but enough to keep it coming back.

As for Whitney... my theory on that is:

NBC sank a TON of money into the marketing for this show, even though the show had very low ratings, ones that would get any other show canceled, due to how much cash NBC put into the marketing, they felt obligated to bring it back for a second season. but they moved to Fridays where lower ratings are acceptable. I don't see the show making it past mid season. You can look at the similarly themed Are You There Chelsea... roughly the same ratings, but that show was cancelled, because there wasn't nearly as much marketing put behind that show.

It only sucks because Community is now moved to Fridays and has the terrible lead in of Whitney... it's fans will watch the show, but it will not attract new viewers being on Friday and coming after the god awful Whitney. Effectively putting the death knell on Community, which is a shame, cuz that show is amazing!

I love Katie Holmes. I thought she was wonderful in her one episode and even thought she and Miller had amazing chemistry together. I just don't like the idea of killing Maggie off. And yeah, she was indeed hot! So was, of course, Natasha Henstridge, whom Eli was engaged to her character in the beginning of the series. It's a great ensemble cast. Also a HUGE fan of Victor Garber. His work on Eli Stone is ALMOST as great as his work on Alias!

Anyone watch the sneak peak premiere of Go On the other night?

I gotta say, it was very enjoyable and a show I will be sticking with. It had really good subtle dry humor mixed with some tug at the heart moments, that didnt seem forced.

Hopefully Perry has a hit on his hands, the premiere episode (which is usually a good series' worst episode) was pretty damn good.

Yes, that's a very strong number. I was just looking through the new shows that I plan to sample, and there seemed to be less new stuff this year than in years past. Many shows that were new last year stuck around.

Top 5 new shows I plan to sample:

1. Last Resort
2. Revolution
3. Vegas
4. Arrow
5. 666 Park Avenue

In terms of comedy I may try The Mindy Project, but I'll wait until I hear more buzz on those. I find comedy shows are more difficult to get a feel on until some reviews start to come in.

To each their own. I quite like New Girl, though it took a few episodes to get going. Once the ensemble came more into focus I think it became a pretty enjoyable show. Less focus on Zooey and her antics and more on the group as a whole.

The problem with comedies for me is that they usually have pretty simple premises that rely on jokes and chemistry to make the show work, and thus it is difficult to discern if they will be something I want to watch. Unless an actor I'm a fan of is on the show, I wait a few weeks. And I don't even necessarily mean reviews from critics, but just general buzz from friends and twitter, etc.

Some big news today:

This season of The Office will be it's Final Season


Jimmy Kimmel Live is moving to 11:35 to directly compete against Leno and Letterman. Nightline, which aired in that time slot will move back to 12:35.

and my favorite news of the day:

NBC just ordered 22 Episodes of a new sitcom Starring Michael J. Fox. About a man who has Parkinson's disease and his family. It will be awesome to have Fox back on TV in a full time show. His guest spots on Rescue Me and Curb were awesome (Especially his guest spot on Curb Your Enthusiasm, that was one of the best guest spots ever!)

I was thinking about The Office ending this season and it made me think that this is actually good news for Community.

Thursday nights is NBC's big night, has been since the inception of Must See TV in the mid 90's. With 30 Rock and The Office ending this season, they have 2 slots open, they can throw new shows in, but their smartest play would be to bring back Community to it's 8pm time slot on Thursdays, have Parks & Rec at 9pm... I dont think Up All Night will pull down enough ratings to keep it, so you have 2 slots open for 2 brand new shows, with 2 established shows as lead ins.

CW is a cable channel? I thought that was considered among the main networks.


Anyway, I just got done watching the pilot for NBC's Revolution. The new show from JJ Abrams and Erik Kripke. And it was awesome. I loved it. I was worried from the trailer that it might be cheesy but it didn't feel cheesy at all. The choreography involving the sword fights were actually awesome and I think I even caught some blood surprisingly for a network show. Billy Burke is really badass in this show. The lead girl is very strong too. And there are a couple of intriguing twists of sorts that makes going into the next episodes very intriguing. Definitely interested in seeing where this is going.

The only thing that sucks is I'm gonna have to wait till September 24 for episode 2.

Well... im not sure if CW is cable or not! It wasn't in my initial list, which only included the big 4.


I don't know what Saving Hope is, but NBC just yanked the final 2 episodes from their schedule. They will stream online.

and TBS has Renewed Sullivan and Son for a Second Season. It isn't an insanely hilarious show, but for some reason, I like it!

New shows that I've seen so far:

Revolution - 8/10
Last Resort - 8/10
The New Normal - 7/10


The Fall season is off to a very good start so far. Hopefully it'll remain this way.

Guys With Kids was so awful I turned it off at the first commercial break. It is a shame, because I am a big Jesse Bradford fan.

The New Normal is awful, but Go On so far has been more enjoyable than I would have expected. It's fairly sweet and has a quirky/enjoyable cast, save for the bearded character who is wholly unnecessary.

I'll be watching the Revolution pilot tonight.

I am kind of glad The New Normal is awful... i just dont like the idea of untalented reality people switching over to mainstream TV (NeeNee Leaks)... the trend needs to die of these reality shows (Not competition reality shows, I dont mind those that much, like Hells Kitchen or Survivor... but shows like Real Housewives and Kardashians)... and I really don't want any of these dumbasses switching over to mainstream!


But it is that time when shows premiere and the ratings tell us what hits and what sinks:

The Revolution premiered with pretty large numbers and should stick around for the season, whether it has a second is still TBD. I didnt wathc it, because a show like this I need to know it has longevity before I invest time, I've been burned too many times!

The Mob Doctor premiered to shit ratings and will more than likely be Cancelled soon.

Revolution joins the increasingly growing list of high concept network shows released in the wake of Lost. Very few of these shows have succeeded creatively or commercially, and they exist now as remnants on DVD for the few fans they may have had. (You know the ones: FlashForward, The Event, Terra Nova, Alcatraz, etc.). Like Lost, J.J. Abrams has his name on Revolution, but to be clear: this is Eric Kripke's show. In seasons 2-5, under Kripke's firm hand, Supernatural was one of the most enjoyable, well crafted, and under-appreciated shows on TV. He is a talented man and a quality show-runner. In many ways I have to give him the benefit of the doubt, which I will over the coming few weeks. That being said, as a pilot, Revolution isn't very good. The concept is what it is. It doesn't make much sense, and the way the show is thus far portraying society as having evolved and developed after the lack of power is a bit silly. But I can forgive that for now if the series begins to create interesting running plots and, more importantly, worthwhile characters. At the end of the day a high concept show like this is only as good as its characters. That's why Lost was such a success, and too many of these shows seem to forget that. For the most part, Revolution's cast of characters is quite bland so far, and each fits into a distinct archetype. Yes, it's a pilot, and it succumbed to all of the worst things pilots do. Only Giancarlo Esposito and Billy Burke make any sort of an impression, and that's mostly because I like them from other things than any great character they have here. But that could change, and evolve. And I hope that it does. I'm keeping this on a short leash, but I'll watch another episode or two and see how things develop and which course they decide to go down.

I disliked last season, but I'm genuinely interested in this year. Things are finally shaken up and the status quo is shifting, and I think it could be pretty darn good. I'm cautiously optimistic.
