I like "Awake"! Well, I like Jason Isaacs. The storylines aren't bad--intriguing in the differences between the timelines. And Britten just remembered that he was run off the road. Darn!

I'm still excited that Parks and Rec got a full season renewal. Also, this being 30 Rock's final season, I can't wait for the comedies I love so much to come back in the fall. It will be a fun time.

NBC is also still developing Mockingbird Lane and Republic of Pirates for midseason.

Re: NBC fall schedule for the 2012/2013 season

Smash being held till midseason will kill it. They're planning a big (?) revamp, but even if that does salvage the show, everyone will have forgotten about it by then.

I think NBC is wasting the opportunity they have this year with a big sports watching audience for the Olympics and football. Will that audience really respond to ads for this lineup? Comedies, maybe - but the dramas are weak. They could have picked up a show about women and prison and a Western! At least they opted for firefighters instead of yet another damn cop show.

Personally, I'm always up for anything sci fi, so I'll check out Revolution and Do No Harm.

Trailers:

Do No Harm - Soapy and overwrought, hunky doc, I'm in!

Chicago Fire - Uncle Mason as a shirtless firefighter! But I'm not really interested in this premise. With all the testosterone being flung around, plus plenty of action scenes, guys should like it (but lose the daytime-soap music.)

Animal Practice - Well, I like Justin Kirk, but if that's an example of the writing...nope.

Revolution - Like everyone else, I'm leery of yet another mythology-heavy road to nowhere, but that won't stop me from going along for the ride. I do like that they start the action 15 years after the "event" so we don't have to go through the tedious process of watching everyone learn cope without their iPhones (and millions of people starving would probably run off a broadcast audience). Can NBC make The Walking Dead work without zombies? Or Jericho without Netflix? We shall see...

One thing's for sure, Giancarlo Esposito will steal the show.

Revolution looks intriguing but this series absolutely screams one episode and done. Also, with the exception of Lost, JJ Abrams=low ratings.

I noticed since The Hunger Games, everyone wants to put a bow and arrow into someone's hands. Sorry but that only looks good with Katniss.

Re: NBC fall schedule for the 2012/2013 season

I think the jury is waaay out in Revolution. The "mystery" could be resolved within the first season, and be a springboard to some other sort of show, maybe more Jericho-like, with a big civil war brewing. Just because Netflix is possibly reviving Jericho doesn't mean NBC can't do a similar story.

As for the bow and arrow, well, some folks have crossbows and Twilight Dad has a sword. Those are the types of weapons they'd have to use, and there's no law that says someone can't get good at it, with a lawless society as motivation and 15 years to practice.

Personally, I'd opt for the crossbow.

Infamous trailer is up - hmm, I was going to give it a miss - didn't care for ABC's Revenge, which is very similar - but I might check this one out.

I forgot about Person of Interest. Consider me corrected. Is Abrams even involved in the show anymore?

Still, I wouldn't invest much in an expensive JJ Abrams show. Alias was one of my favorite shows but was never a ratings hit.

He hasn't been a hands-on showrunner in a long time on any show, nor will he play that role on Revolution.

Everything is relative. Alias wasn't an enormous hit, but it was nonetheless a reasonable hit in the ratings by ABC's standards at the time.

Huh. There's not a single returning show on NBC that I watch, or want to watch. Of the new stuff, only Revolution sounds mildly interesting, and that really doesn't excite me much. Pretty bland fair, overall.

Looks like Michael Shanks' "Saving Hope" debuts on NBC as summer filler. I'm interested in that only for Shanks; it seems far too soapy to get very far.

Two more Do No Harm clips.

Second clip: how many doctor show cliches can we fit into 1 minute, 12 sec???

Third clip: the expected "Jeckyl runs amok" clip...well almost...hey they gotta save something for the actual episode, right?

Okay, looks a bit ahem rough so far. Maybe the show will get better...?

Trailer and three preview clips of Revolution.

Re: NBC fall schedule for the 2012/2013 season

It doesn't surprise me at all that Smash isn't on NBC's schedule for the fall because of two things:
1) Season 2 will be exactly the same length as Season 1 (15 episodes)
2) The show's premise makes it perfect as a mid-season series

NBC greenlight their pirate series: Crossbones. Mostly likely will debut in spring 2013 with ten episodes. If it flops, that's a nice miniseries anyway.

It will center on legendary English pirate Blackbeard. The series is based on the book The Republic Of Pirates by Colin Woodard. Set during the 10-year “Golden Age of Piracy” from 1715 to 1725, it follows some of the world’s most notorious pirates as they forge their own rogue nation, called New Providence, which became the first democracy in the Americas.

Re: NBC fall schedule for the 2012/2013 season

Jon Favreau, who directed the Revolution pilot, discusses its tone.

THR: What does this world look like? It’s post-apocalyptic, but it’s modern.

Favreau: Yeah, we wanted to make it actually hopeful, even though that doesn’t sound like it really fits with the dystopian world that post-apocalyptic stories are usually set against. But the feeling was that there was a whole younger generation that grew up without power and that when nature begins to reclaim what we’ve built, whether it’s cities, you see the city of Chicago 15 years after it’s been all but abandoned, you see that the plants start to grow back over things and there’s a lushness and a greenness, and the green shoots of new life that have come over society, so it’s kind of an interesting, different spin on it that was something, we had really did and planned for and discussed.

THR: Were there any of JJ’s shows, like Lost, that you used as an inspiration?

Favreau: It definitely shares some DNA with Lost and the other Bad Robot shows, but I think when Eric came up with the idea for this, I think he was looking at things like Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, how to set a fantasy with swords and lo-tech societies butting [heads] and set it on an American backdrop. So even though America’s overgrown, it has a personality that you don’t see in those European-based shows.
Definitely smart of them to go for an optimistic tone on network TV. PS, Jon, LOTR is not a TV show (tho if you have something in mind...?)
