    Okay, so it seems that most of the new shows I'm trying out are on everyone's "delete the SP list", so I thought I'd start a new thread where we can make our predictions about the BEST new shows. Shows that you feel sure will survive and go on to do great (okay good) things? Have you any favorites yet that you want to put your money (and your SP) on? I'm looking to add some new SP's. :)

    Cool! Suburgatory is one of the new ones I haven't seen yet. I'll have to look into Person of Interest too. Thanks! :up:

    Pretty much none of the new 2011-2012 TV offerings excite me at all...I'd love to know if there is a true compelling gem out there to watch, but so far I have found there isn't anything.

    Agreed. Lots of really negative feedback on almost everything. Maybe this thread will uncover some of those hidden gems. If I can pick up even one or two really good new shows, I'll be happy. ;)

    I haven't watched much of the new stuff yet-I generally try to let a couple episodes pile up before I try it.

    I haven't either. Too many 2 hour premieres going on right now. Most of the stuff I have in waiting has been getting some pretty bad reviews though. I'm hoping this may narrow it down somewhat.

    So far, nothing is grabbing me.. But it's just started and I need to see a few shows I haven't seen yet and give a few more shows a couple more airings before I can really tell for sure.

    I liked the New Girl pilot, but not so much with the 2nd ep. Nothing else has grabbed me yet, but to be fair, most of the new stuff is still unwatched.

    Revenge is the only one I have really enjoyed so far.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    I usually don't watch new shows, because the ones I like inevitably get canceled too early and I like to wait and see which ones stick around awhile, but this one has sucked me in after two eps. I hope it lasts at least the full season.

    I guess Terra Nova, since it's the only SP I've kept so far... it's not great but it is entertaining enough to have potential.

    The first two shows aren't new..

    Why can't we have Star Trek back? Paramount needs to make another Trek show. I think even Enterprise was far far better than no Trek on TV.

    I'll chime in with Terra Nova, still looks interesting after two hours.
