New shows listing for 2016-2017

Spoiler: Yeah, it's another slide show so deal with it.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/gallery/...Btf87i#image=5

I nailed it earlier when I predicted the reported Blacklist spinoff would star Famke Janssen. Michael Weatherly and Hayley Atwell both get new shows. Let's see if MW can do something other than a DiNozzo impersonation. Several other former TV stars are also coming back in new shows. Look through the slideshow and see if anything piques your interest.

I agree, the fact that it is a slide show pretty much spoils it.

I have no problem with slide shows, but apparently it's an issue for others, hence the spoiler alert. If it bothers you then move along. I like having a picture of the cast along with a description of the storyline.

Hey, I didn't make the damn thing. I just provided a link with the caveat that it was a slideshow so I could avoid the snide remarks. If you've got a problem with slide shows then don't look at it. It was meant to be informative and not a target of flame posts.

To be fair, that wasn't a terribly bold prediction, since the reported Blacklist spin-off was reported to star Janssen, Tom and Mr. Solomon...

Thanks!

What I noticed is there are quite a few new lawyer shows!

Many look interesting!

Not a lot there that I am dying to see although I am sure I will check out some of them. I like Kristen Bell and Ted Danson so that may be worth checking out as well as the Time after Time show.

It is pretty amazing how many shows are being based off movies or the books they were based on. Taken, Lethal Weapon, Training Day, Frequency, Time After Time, Emerald City, the Exorcist.

Agreed. Lots of movie to TV transitions.

Not much there I'm really jazzed about. Although that could be because I'm sort of losing interest in TV in general lately.

I made the prediction when I saw the first episode with Famke Janssen and heard rumors of the spinoff. I had not heard anything else about the show or who was going to star in it. I figured that the only reason they brought Janssen in was for that reason. She's got a much bigger reputation that precedes just a cameo appearance in a TV series.

Not too amazing when you realize that the networks have just run out of original ideas. I'll bet a lot of them are cancelled before the season's half over. They'll probably be replaced with some lame reality shows.

Although you missed it, they announced the backdoor pilot with Janssen several weeks (months?) before her episodes appeared. And we had been discussing it here. So apparently when you made your prediction, nobody realized you were making a prediction...we just figured you were participating in the ongoing discussion.

Based on the slideshow there's little I want to see from there. Maybe once they put trailers out maybe more will look better. I have to say the reboots/adapted from movie stuff I will pass on unless word of mouth says they're good like weeks after the pilots.

Will probably check out Community 2.0 The Great Indoors and The Good Place at least.

As would be expected, mostly looks like a bunch of crap.

Time After Time could be interesting if Kevin Williamson actually does some of the writing.

Still Star-Crossed, possibly the worst title in tv history, looks like it could be really really realllllly bad.

Shots Fired has potential, great cast.

Riverdale, based on the Archie comics, I give it two episodes before cancellation.

Powerless has a clever premise, could be fun.

How many times is Katherine Heigl (whom I like) going to bounce back and forth between bad movies and bad tv shows?

And the usual lawyers and cops blah blah blah...

Slideshow pictures and text were extremely out of sync with each other until I rotated my smartphone orientation from landscape (my browsing preference) to portrait.

Some of these shows look interesting. Hope Heigl's show is good and will last.

That's probably true. I hadn't seen anything about the pilot with Janssen and wasn't following the threads that discussed it so my prediction was isolated from whatever else was taking place here. The only thing I had heard was that there was a planned spinoff and nobody was sure if James Spader was going to be in it. Right now it looks like Janssen and Ryan Eggold (aka Tom Keen) are the main characters, although I suspect we'll be seeing Red pop up from time to time.
