    They had a goodreason for not going with a disabled actor. The ability to do flashbacks, pre-incident. So I have no issue with that.

    I don't have an issue with it either, but that would have been the "politically correct" choice if that's what they were trying to do.

    What Fox does with a show pretty much depends on one thing: does it have anything to put into its timeslot that will do better? Usually - especially for hour-long dramas - the answer is "no," which is probably why both Alcatraz and The Mob Doctor lasted 13 weeks. (I think the last time they did pull an hour drama early was LoneStar.) It's twice as big a problem with Sleepy Hollow, as Fox plans to air "instant repeats" on Fridays for a few weeks.

    There's also the "Til Death Rule" - Fox usually won't cancel a show at the end of its third season because it knows it can get a deal on a fourth season from producers who are desperate to get enough episodes for syndication.

    3 votes:

    1. Back in the Game
    2. Ironside
    3. Enlisted

    Just my opinion. (From previous, "Enlisted" looks really dumb).

    When two shows like this come on TV in the same year:

    "Dads" & "Mom" you have to wonder about the "Creative minds" and their abilities in Hollywood.

    On the other hand, one is from Chuck Lorre, so I dunno.... :p

    Back in the Game and The Goldbergs are my votes.

    It will be interesting to see how the Michael J. Fox show turns out. That could go either way IMO. Also, Masterchef Jr? I'll like to see how they make that work.

    But from what Kevin Spacey said in his speech about how Netflix gets it. They make over 100 pilots, and what they are offering up this fall was considered to be the best of them?

    Historically it's whatever stars Jerry O'Connell or Seth Green.

    Was it last season or 2 seasons ago that Fox nuked something after ONE airing? Drama on Monday nights, IIRC..

    I always wondered about that one...I suspected something must be going on behind the scenes.

    IIRC, it was a show that was impossible to describe briefly in a way that made it sound interesting (or even not unpleasant), and thus impossible to market effectively. But given how rapturous the reviews are, you'd think the network of Terminator and Dollhouse would have given it more time.

    2010, by the way, so three years ago...

    where's the "New Fall Shows You're Planning to Watch" thread? :)

    Mine are:

    - Andy Samberg's 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' (Fox)
    - 'The Golbergs'

    When I saw the commercial for Masterchef Jr., I turned to my wife and said, "That's it, they've officially run out of ideas!" This is worthy of a fall TV spot? Really?

    I remember Lonestar. It was a weird mash up of ideas, but I kinda wanted to watch it. They promoted the heck out of it, but then it died.

    They run out of ideas years ago, that's why they're rebooting so many things.

    Watched Ironside today, I liked it. I like that he wasn't a "pefect cop" pre-injury, he was downright nasty.

    I like that that still comes through.

    This one shows promise.

    I don't feel too bad for Jerry O'Connell, he's married to Rebecca Romjin, I would rather spend my time at home than working if I were him. :D

    The dude on the left's foot is merged with the kid's, while James Caan's body is in front of the woman, but her foot's in front of his.

    CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
