Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I've not sampled much new fare this season.

After last nights SHIELD I left it on for The Goldbergs and it felt like one part That 70's Show meets Family Ties. I'd say I left with a modest impression of it and would try it again.

People I know say I need to try Sleepy Hollow and I intend to. Would read through the thread here but know it's likely spoiler heavy. Is the broad strokes here that SH is worth checking out?

I was one of those who really didn't intend on watching it but my wife wanted to so I watched it with her. I was very pleasantly surprised and I am liking it quite a bit. I think it's definitely worth checking out.

Sleepy Hollow is great fun and has already been renewed for a second season.

It's like a more historical Supernatural with even more craziness.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I'll take the opposite stance here and say that although I will be continuing with Sleepy Hollow for now, I'm not loving it so far. It's alright but just missing that something extra that would really draw me in and make me want to watch. It's on my DVR right now but I don't really feel like watching it.

Not surprised. I took it off my DVR when I saw the ratings

And Mike and Molly returns.

CBS is in a disastrous place right now, I think the cards are starting to fall.

Wow, my gut feeling was actually right this time. I felt the same way about 2 Broke Girls but it's still stinking up the airwaves.

So odd to have Agents of SHIELD as the lead in, though.

Yeah I don't understand the whole set up with SHIELD, comedies and a lottery "drama".

3 minutes into the 2nd episode of Super Fun Night...

Kimmy the lawyer at work says "I've prepared a report highlighting our successes with tech companies... Oh no, sorry, that's my Pretty little liars Fan fiction... I make them all fat and ugly."



Maybe this one should be allowed to live?

No. No. Never.

Next up should be Betrayal or Hostages but both might stick around for awhile because neither station has anything to fill in for November sweeps.

So The Millers, Mom, Super Fun Night should all be dead soon.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Line from Allison Janey in Mom last week... "I want my grand daughter back by 11 pm with her hymen intact... **(crazy eyes)** ...I'm kidding! You've already knocked her up, so you can do whatever you want to her body."

...

They all have a good lines here and there but... Where is something epic like Arrested Development?

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I'm not a huge fan of Arrested Development, I like it fine, but think it's overrated. However you bring up a great point, all the sitcoms this year are just blah, there is nothing special or a stand out. And there are a ton of new sitcoms (I refuse to call them comedies when they are rarely funny) and nothing that makes me go wow. My favorite comedy last year probably was Raising Hope.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Yeah I would say that the past few years the sitcoms had slowly started to be worthwhile again, but this year in particular there is not one that is good. Unfortunately it doesn't look like there were many new dramas that are good either....

Though, I have to say that I watched this week's episode of The Blacklist and I am really enjoying it. I was on the fence after the pilot but as usual, the third episode is the one that really makes or breaks it for me. And I thought it was highly entertaining.
