Guess which new show will be canceled first?

We usually have a topic on this every fall and I haven't seen one for this year, but I'm not wearing my glasses, so....

Anyways what show does everyone think will be canceled first now that they started?

My guesses...
Super Fun Night (Trophy Wife should get that time slot)
Lucky 7 (Horrible idea, horrible ratings)
Dads

Hostages will live through all 15 episodes, maybe a Saturday night burn off.

We Are Men won't live past a first season, but it's on a jam packed CBS lineup so I see it doing it's 13 episodes then being replaced midseason. Many other shows won't make it to November.

The Blacklist. Feels like a Homeland lite, and apart from Spader, nothing much interesting or new in opener. Unless they pull something really interesting, or it dramatically improves, can't see it lasting.

Dads will be the first, it's awful

I haven't seen Super Fun Night but all reviews I read said it stinks, so I don't think it will last very long.

I also have bad feeling about Dracula.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The one where Andy Samburg plays a New York Detective was actually quite funny, I thought. But it's time-slot: up against both 'NCIS' and 'Agents of SHIELD' will probably kill it...plus it's on FOX.

Haven't seen the pilot yet, but from what I've heard, it's awful.

Plus, it's Joss Whedon. It was doomed the moment he pitched it.

Definitely. I saw the first ten or so minutes last night, and it was pathetic. A top fugitive walks into the FBI HQ... and something like thirty guards fan out with their weapons drawn in a beautifully symmetric display, with not one shouting so much as a word?!

Also, one of my friends back in high school loudly and repeatedly considered Harry Lennix the worst actor ever for the way he barked "Dammit Morpheus!" and other lines in The Matrix Reloaded, and now whenever I see him in Man of Steel or here, I just get this instant "totally horrible actor!" reaction, which I don't even feel myself, but I haven't seen him show any other performance, either. Seems he's always playing Commander Locke.

Well, I've seen it three times, so obviously, I enjoyed it.

But seeing as it was the highest rated premiere for a drama in four seasons, I doubt that it's going anywhere soon.

One of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Goldbergs, or Super Fun Night.

I don't think Dads gets the axe because of FOX's love of Seth MacFarlane.

It's on NBC and it's on after The Voice, unless the ratings bomb real bad in week 2 it will be around all season.

Isn't Dracula just a miniseries anyways?

What does it being on Fox do? Fox is trying, and failing, to have a comedy night. Dads and The Mindy Project will both be canceled far ahead of Brooklyn 9-9.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I still haven't seen Super Fun Night so I'm not gonna judge it yet, but from what I've heard I'd agree it'll likely be cancelled.

Out of the other new shows...I hope Agents of SHIELD isn't cancelled, it's been my favorite so far.

Dads and Brooklyn 99 both bored me to tears so I'm happy to watch Agents of SHIELD during that time slot.

Mom was cute, but I don't know if Anna Ferris can pull off a TV series. Allison Janney helps though I don't think she's enough to save the show either. It'll likely be cancelled by mid season, the other Monday night CBS shows are much stronger.

Goldbergs had a very nice Wonder Years vibe to it, but the visuals WERE awful but that's the 80s for you. The older son reminds me of Chip from last year's 1600 Penn. In other words...a likely cancel. It really doesn't have enough going for it.

Lastly I've seen Trophy Wife...and uggggh. Awful, awful show. The littlest kid was cute and Bradley Whitford's a good put upon husband, but that's all. ANOTHER likely cancel.

The one that really has me going 'What were they thinking?' in terms of the premise and how they'll be able to continue on for very long is Hostages. The doctor's family were all horrible people and if she let them die I wouldn't blame her. The whole 'is he good, or is he bad' about Dylan McDermott's character is interesting, for a little while at least. But how they'll pull this off for a whole season, let alone longer, I have no idea.

My guess is either Hostages or Trophy Wife will be the first cancelled if Super Fun Night isn't.
