Once Upon A Time is pretty good. Castle is excellent.

Those are the only shows on ABC that I watch currently.

I'm a little bummed that "The Sing-Off" got cancelled. I enjoyed that show, particularly this last season with Pentatonix. At least the show went out on a high note (pun not really intended).

About the only show on NBC's fall schedule that looks remotely interesting is Revolution. The rest are seriously blah for me.

As a storyline, it's pretty darn compelling. But it was pretty plain that it was cannon fodder for the cancellation crew.

I wonder how many others though the same thing and thus didn't bother to check it out.

Ha! We just watched this streaming on Netflix with my son last night. I'd forgotten a few things but he's mature enough to handle it, and he loved the funny.

Not a lot new on FOX's schedule... and none are particularly original or ground-breaking. "The Mob Doctor" is on my deadpool... it's just so pedestrian of a concept for a drama.

Frankly, FOX seems to be coasting. So many of their shows are getting really, really long in the tooth, and they're not buying anything that really seems like it'll be their "next big thing."

I think the one thread is sufficient. Besides, we've already had quite a bit of discussion here, and starting all new threads will just mean that stuff will be rehashed.

I'm not too impressed with either of the schedules released so far. I'm not a big comedy fan and both are pretty heavy on comedies. That leaves me with just 4 shows on my schedule, only two of which I am sure of - Fringe, Revolution. The other two I'll give a look are Mob Doctor and Chicago Fire. I hope the other networks have a bit more to offer.

I'm still surprised CBS holds onto Undercover Boss - it's got the feel for a cable channel, not network TV. Especially considering the strength of CBS' lineup...
Yeah but I think they have been running it on Fridays and doing well with it there.

So FOX won't air anything new in Sunday nights in the fall? Just animation repeats until January? That's odd. Why would they give up that night for 1/3 of the season?

Mitch Grassi appeared on Glee earlier this season, but as part of a different group - which ended up lip-syncing a recording from 2008.

Did I miss something? I think that just refers to the 7 o'clock block / NFL overrun slot.

I guess I was misreading. I read this line:

Quote:

and thought it meant Animation Domination wasn't starting until 2013.

No - that refers to some new animated programming that will take over the Saturday night 11 PM-12:30 AM time slots.

One show has already been announced: Axe Cop, based on the online comic.

Yay and yay! Couldn't seem to get on board w/Napoleon Dynamite. Bob's Burgers for me - I don't know what it is...every time I watch I think 'man, this show is so bad', BUT it's also so good. I cannot look away and would have been really disappointed had it not been renewed.

I don't get this. Why not just air The Following right from the start in the 10pm slot? Grrrr.

FOX doesn't have a 10 pm slot. I'm guessing their affiliates, who make most of their money off their 10 pm local newscasts, would be pretty upset if they aired that show at 10 pm.

Oh hell you're right. I forgot Fox always has news at 10pm. I don't watch any TV news, it's full of nothing but depressing crap so I pick and choose what I want to know about every morning on google news.

Anyhow, so we have to wait for The Mob Doctor to end or fail for this one? I thought it sounded much better myself.

It's possible FOX has higher hopes for The Following, which is why they're saving it for midseason. In the past, FOX hasn't had huge success launching shows in the fall due to the inevitable interruptions from postseason baseball. So sometimes they hold back some shows for a midseason launch when there will be more promotion from Idol and when there won't be interruptions from baseball.

No - presumably, The Mob Doctor will end in late December or mid-January (unless it's cancelled earlier, the way Lone Star was a few years ago), and The Following will run from January to May.

Usually, the new season starts the day after the Emmy Awards, which would be September 24 this year; allowing for two pre-emptions for postseason baseball (there could be three - October 15, 22, and 29 are NLCS Games 2 and 7 and World Series Game 5), and three for "Christmas break" (December 17, 24, and 31), the 13th episode of The Mob Doctor would be January 21.

Bummer about Unforgettable.. Though I haven't watched any of them for years, I'm surprised CSI:Miami is the one that's going, and NY is staying.. I like(d) them all when I was watching them.. (and they're all on the "I hope to some eon catch up on them, maybe even via streaming" list)

I also read that The Following has a shorter order (15?) because Kevin Bacon didn't want to commit to longer than that. So if they start in say Jan/Feb they can run them straight through, no repeats.

Wow, I realize I watch very little on ABC. The Wednesday night comedy block and Once Upon a Time. That's it. Not sure about the new shows yet.

ABC once again proves they know what they are doing

teaming up Revenge and Once Upon a Time? Genius

Putting Happy Endings and Apt 23 together? Genius

Wednesday night comedy line up? Awesome.

Sticking Last Man Standing on Friday which makes Tim Allen happy and you get to kind of hide it. Genius

TV critic Alan Sepinwall posted these comments after hearing FOX president Kevin Reilly make comments about the new schedule:
Quote:
At mid-season, we get the new show Reilly seemed most excited about: "The Following," a thriller created by Kevin Williamson ("The Vampire Diaries," the "Scream" films) about an FBI agent (Kevin Bacon) chasing a serial killer (James Purefoy). Bacon only agreed to do a TV series if the commitment was only for 15 episodes a season, so FOX will hold the show — which Reilly hyperbolically suggested could be "the next '24'" — until 2013 so the episodes can run straight through without interruption.
So it definitely seems that they have high hopes for The Following and purposely held it until midseason when it would be less likely to be pre-empted by baseball or other things.
