I believe Go On is free via iTunes. I'm most looking forward to 666 Park Avenue.

Quote:
Synopsis for 666 Park Avenue

If you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay... could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Owned by the mysterious Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn - Lost) and his sexy wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams - Desperate Housewives), The Drake is home to dozens of residents who are unaware they're living in the dark embrace of supernatural forces. They think their dreams are all coming true, only to find they've been lured into making, what feels like, a deal with the Devil. When a young Mid-western couple - Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor - Charlie's Angels, Grey's Anatomy) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable - Brothers & Sisters) - is hired to manage The Drake, they soon discover that evil, obsession, and manipulation has a home. Allow yourself to be seduced by 666 PARK AVENUE, and unravel the mysteries of this devilish new drama from Alloy Entertainment (Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars) and executive producers David Wilcox (Fringe, Life on Mars), Leslie Morgenstein (Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries) and Gina Girolamo (The Secret Circle, The Lying Game).

Not that I was going to watch it, but it's too bad Emily Owens, M.D. is on the worst list. I fine Meryl Streep's daughter incredibly cute when she guest stars on The Good Wife.

This list should be taken with a humongous grain of salt, since critics have only see pilots at this point. I like to wait until the critics have seen the first few episodes before really getting a read on what shows will be critical hits.

I'm surprised "The New Normal" is on the best list. I thought the promos during the Olympics made it look Horrible.

I concur. From the pilot last year I thought Revenge was terrible and was going to bomb but it was one of the biggest shows last year.

Where's The Mob Doctor (Mondays starting 9/17 on Fox)? Then again, Animal Practice isn't on any of the lists either, so maybe it's not meant to be all-inclusive.

Maybe Partners is supposed to be a drama but is so damn bad that it's funny?

It's a best/worst list, so if a show isn't either one of the best or one of the worst, it's not listed.

I am waiting for Sept 25, the premiering of ‘The Mindy Project’. From what I have heard is that the sitcom tells the story of a single physician who has the Bridget Jones kind of persona. It tells from the perspective of the physician and her relationship with the people around her. Surely, it will be an interesting comedy sitcom and I am going to watch it

I'll make it easy for all of you. Don't watch anything I like, it will get canceled. If you stick with talent contests and cop shows (on CBS) you will guarantee to have a full season to watch. Otherwise, it's a crap shoot.

How come "Animal Practice" isn't on the worst list? Too obvious?

Not funny, but typical. HuffPo is the worst. The worst.

I am slowly trying to migrate all my correspondence off AOL simply because I can not stand the gobs of garbage that surround my e-mail anymore. I know, I know people say AOL su**s, but I have had the same e-mail address since 1989...tough to give it up.

stupid reply

what does Huffington Post have to do with the inconsistency ?

They didn't pick them.
They're just reporting what the critics have picked.

If you had said "Not funny, but typical. TV critics are the worst. The worst."

Then that would have been valid, but it makes absolutely no sense to put down the Post for asking 20 random TV critics what the best and worst shows are and getting 20 different answers.

Nashville will be fun to watch from a local perspective. They've been shooting all around town and rumour is they've got five shows in the can just from here. I suspect once they get enough establishing and general shots they'll take up residence in a sound stage in California for the majority of the work.

I'm not in favor of the indie girl sitcoms.

Agreed. I HATED the Revenge promos and had little interest in watching it. I wasn't impressed by the pilot at all. It turned out to be my favorite network show last season and I can't wait for season 2!
