2013 Fall TV - What new shows have earned a Season Pass?

Checking the schedule it appears that no new shows premiere tonight so that means the first full week of premieres is now over.

So, the question is what new shows, based on their first episode, have earned a definite season pass on your DVR?

I still have a few new shows I have not seen yet (Hostages, The Goldburgs) but from what I have seen so far these shows have earned their spots on my DVR

Sitcoms
The Trophy Wife
Mom
The Crazy Ones

Dramas
The Blacklist
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Hostages (probationary)

That is it! I am being really picky this year and trying not to add too much. There may be a few others I record for a few more episodes to see how they pan out and a few others that may get added once they premiere.

What has made you list?

SPs that probably will remain for the season:
Arsenio Hall
Sleepy Hollow
The Blacklist

SPs that are iffy:
Hostages
Michael J Fox
SHIELD
Ironside
Almost Human
American Horror Story: Coven - I don't like witch stories but I like Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett

Edit: removed returning shows but American Horror Story because I never watched it before so it is new for me.

Earned? For now, only Trophy Wife. Others are on probation. (Sometimes probation survives a whole season for comedies. Hell, 'Til Death was on probation its entire run.)

Zero dramas so far. I find I watch fewer and fewer of them every year.

I haven't watched any of the new dramas YET. I've got Sleepy Hollow, SHIELD, Blacklist, & Hostages recorded and waiting for me. I've tried a few of the new comedies and none of them stuck for me. I did a fair amount of 'research' in the preseason about the dramas so I'm fairly certain that they will all be kept.

For now
The Blacklist
Hostages
Mom
Trophy Wife
Michael J Fox Show
Brooklyn 99
The Goldbergs

Haven't seen yet:
Lucky 7
Back in the Game
The Crazy Ones


Only watched 1/2 of the pilot for Dads. I'll probably keep it around as long as it stays on air. Based on feedback here, I don't expect it to be long.

All new shows get a SP, but few get to keep it.

So far the lucky winners are:
Trophy Wife
The Michael J Fox Show
Sleepy Hollow - good enough for now
The Blacklist
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

Haven't decided yet:
Back in the Game
The Crazy Ones
Lucky 7

Not watched yet:
Lucky 7

If it has aired and isn't listed, the SP has been cancelled.

I have a season pass for Almost Human from early august when Fox aired the previews of several shows.

Mom, based on the pilot a solid season pass.
Michael J Fox, Brooklyn Nine Nine. Watched two shows each and keeping pass but not my favorites.
Dads, Sleepy Hollow. Season Pass deleted.
There are still shows that haven't aired since Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory and Michael J Fox all aired back to back episodes the first time around. Dracula hasn't aired yet but I'm not interested in watching based on the previews I've seen. Will watch American Horror Story: Coven.

I watched a couple more tonight.

The Crazy Ones gets a season pass.
Hostages gets a probationary season pass

The Goldbergs - this was a close one but I think I may pass on it.

Most of the pilots had me at least wanting to see the next few episodes. I think deciding from just the pilot is tough because there is some development and changes in the first few episodes as the program settles into it's stride.

I came here to see what shows I should record. Thanks for the suggestions.

Betts, there are too many to watch them all for a few times, and then decide. If it doesn't grab me the first time, it's gone. I just don't have enough time or space!

I'll be sticking with Sleepy Hollow, SHIELD, Blacklist, and Trophy Wife for sure.

Michael J. Fox Show is on probation.

Still need to watch The Crazy Ones and Ironside.

Of the new shows, I've only tried Sleepy Hollow and SHIELD so far. Still have The Blacklist and Hostages saved up, and looking forward to Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

Gave Sleepy Hollow two episodes, and I'm out. It's not terrible, but it struck me as a warmed-over version of the monster of the week episodes from The X-Files, and there's enough other stuff to watch to sink time into this.

SHIELD is sticking around for now.

Wow, it looks like The Trophy Wife is probably the show mentioned most. For Dramas, It looks like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are the most added.

I had a pass for all comedies plus Blacklist.

I'm all but ready to axe Mom. The rest either haven't been watched or I haven't made a decision.

I always give dramas at least three episodes before I jump into episode 1.

Ah, I like Mom.

I don't know if I can add anything else. After one week I am tired of trying to squeeze in 4 or 5 hours a night in order to screen everything and still rolling into the weekend with lots to catch up on.
