I watched the trailers for all the new NBC/FOX shows. Chicago Fire, Revolution and The Mob Doctor all look worth a shot but nothing too special. The Following with Kevin Bacon is the only show I'm excited about so far. My only worry is I don't see how they could take that story line longer than 4-5 episodes. Very interested to see how it plays out.
Anyone like any of the other shows? ABC has their presentation tomorrow so hopefully they'll have something great.
when will we get the cbs and the cw trailers
- FOX's only drama catching me is "The Following". The cast is really good and story is interesting. Especially, Bacon-Purefoy dialogues could be great. It's not good that it is going to be broadcasted midseason. I agree with @itcdr. I'm curious about how they will expand the story.
- As for NBC, the only show that I will be waiting with excitement is "Revolution". Especially, Giancarlo Esposito is a great actor. Although Abram's latest projects were not as good as Lost & Fringe, the promo is very promising.
"Animal Practice" looks nice, as well. I will give it a try. I liked the idea of combining animals and comedy.
@xelex, CBS has their presentation tomorrow and TheCW the day after so we'll be adding the new show pages over the next couple days.
And here's ABC's new shows. Still have some work to do to fill in the pages though. Each page does at least have a trailer
- dramas -
- comedies -
ABC looks a little more promising than NBC/FOX but still not amazing. How to Live with your parents, 666 Park Avenue, Zero Hour and Last Resort all look like they could be good.
So fox canceled several great shows to add 5 new shows that will be lucky to get the ratings of just one of the canceled shows... What on earth are these morons thinking?
They release great new shows and don't even give them time to generate a fan-base before cancelling them. Fox seriously needs new management.
TV's just brutal nowadays. That's the way the business is now.
I would agree with the general consensus on Bacon's THE FOLLOWING.
The Following doesn't look interesting, just like The Mob Doctor (similar to ABC's Red Widow). Fox's schedule does not appeal to me at all. NBC's Revolution looks promising, as does ABC's Zero Hour. I'll check out Nashville and Last Resort too. I'm not too sure about 666 Park Avenue though.
I'm waiting for the trailers for CBS' Elementary and Vegas, before I make my mind up about them. As for The CW: I'll check out all their series, but they did not pick up the three most interesting pilots The Selection, Joey Dakota and Shelter.
Broadcasters are playing it safe, after their many risks backfired past season.
I'm hoping for some new sci-fi shows to compliment and/or replace the current sci-fi shows.
Lost so many TV series this year. They were hardly given a chance! One season and poof, gone for ever.
Although I'm looking forward to trying out some of the new ones announced, I'm not crossing my fingers for them to be superior to the ones that were cancelled. :/
I'm starting to really really hate the "money > good story telling" mentality. I understand that for these shows to be produced, they must make enough money and buzz to make it worthwhile continuing them. But c'mon! Anyone remember Firefly? One season and bam! Cancelled. Yet as we now know, there was so much more to tell!
Quote from bojan:
- "They release great new shows and don't even give them time to generate a fan-base before cancelling them."
I see the same thing every year. Quality shows being canceled after 1 season, shows that should have been canceled years ago renewed as they now have name recognition, and new shows starting that clearly should have never made the light of day. Hence the focus of this site is to at least help people find the good shows now before they're gone forever and I hope to see the future of ShareTV help make an impact on promoting those shows that are of actually quality but lack the ratings the networks need to justify their existence.
Anyway, off my rant and back to the new shows. CBS has their upfronts today and here are the new shows coming next season.
- dramas -
- comedies -
basically blank pages now so could use some help filling them in. Looks like we got ABC's pages from yesterday pretty much done so we can focus on CBS today and then TheCW tomorrow.
Looks Great Shows
Nice Share Mr.itcdr
you missed two shows for nbc
New Shows From The CW
Revolution is the only show I will check out because the rest sound like dudes to me. Calling most shows a comedy is actually an oxymoron.
Arrow and Cult might warrant some interest, but we will see if they are worth my viewing effort.
Mods, good news. ABC is streaming the pilots of all their new Fall shows online right now on their press site. Shoot me a PM for details.
The following full-episodes are up:
"How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)"
"The Family Tools"
"666 Park Avenue"
This could help us decide which shows to focus on. Whichever shows we think will take off I want to focus on writing unique content and images for to build them up so come Fall we can be in the right position to attract new visitors.
an you please give us a link so we could watch it too
only mods have access to our press accounts as they can be registered as employees. not allowed to give out access to the public as we could lose our account
so we can't see it ? thanks anyway for your answer
I'm going through TheCW pilots. Arrow looks like it might be interesting. The funny thing is though it is based on the Green Arrow character on Smallville but the actor (Justin Hartley) who played the Green Arrow is in another of TheCW's pilots (Emily Owens M.D.). An odd turn of events. Anyway, the other pilots don't look so good but I couldn't find any video on Cult so waiting to see how that looks.
i will be boycotting any new fox or nbc shows after cancelling awake and gifted man and bent .Why should we invest our time and energy onto new shows only for them to can them. i will be watching some of the great new web tv shows made by real tv producers. check out these 25 shows worth not missing

The Selection is not dead! Negotiations are starting soon to redevelop the series. It could air midseason, if all works out soon. But I'm willing to wait longer, as long as the show is made. It sounds very promising, even if they deviate from the books.
Some other pilots might see the light of day as well (http://www.deadline.com/2012/05/upfront-2012-what-pilots-are-still-alive/)
@itcdr: The Arrow sounds very odd, I stopped watching Smallville a few seasons ago and have been meaning to catch up but Green Arrow neer seemed like a character that could hold a full show. Will be interesting to see where they go with it.
Personally, I would be very interested in a network that was internet based, and I would not mind a few commercials. I want to watch shows when I want to rather than some network telling you when you have to watch TV. Internet TV show might have 30 million viewers in a week rather than 3 million on one day. Networks are cancelling shows with 3 million viewers, so they could still go to an internet based network, and go on for many more years. 30 million viewers would be a advertisers dream come true. Instead of interrupting the show with full commercials banner adds would work well to pay for these shows.
