Person of Interest and Terra Nova are two I've decided to give a try. On the fence with Boss. If it had been casted differently, I would be all over it.

This will be the first year ever I don't put my time into any new network TV shows. Last year, losing great shows like Chicago Code, Detroit 1-8-7 and Mad Love plus all the seasons past. I have been fooled to many times by network execs with there canceling at the drop of the hat

Person of interest and Last man standing are it for us.. I might give Terra Nova a try but this type of show is not something I typically enjoy.

I hear you on that. Loved Chicago Code. But don't blame the networks, blame the viewers, or lack thereof.

Actually the ratings were not as bad as other shows that were not cancelled, they should have given it one more season or tried it out on the FX network

My guess is that is was too expensive to produce to warrant another season of low[ish] ratings.

I would guess the same thing, it's just stinks for fans of a particular show that's on the fringe

Weird, I always assumed you were over the age of 22.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

For just about EVERY new show....
Going to simply record them, and queue them up for a few months...

Wasted way too much time the last two seasons on shows that were cancelled after two months.

Plenty of other shows to stay current on, until that point.

My usual policy is to record as many new shows to watch as possible which, when you can record four programs simultaneously, gives you a great deal of latitude. However, you can't watch it all. So normally, questionable new shows are put on an external hard drive for a month to see what gets canceled. We do try out a few, nonetheless.

Last year my wife and I really were looking forward to a season of Fox's "Lonestar" after seeing the first two episodes. Of course, Fox canceled the show before airing the third episode.

Here's the new scripted dramas I'll be recording, and an indication of what I expect we'll be watching ("maybe" indicates if time permits we might check out the first episode and perhaps a few more before deciding if the rest of the season gets moved to the EHD):

Because the appeal of a new comedy is so hard to accurately project, we'll probably check most of them out and probably will reject most of them.

One solution: Record all the series you can. Then wait to see which are cancelled "before their time", and then watch.

No love for "Whitney"? That's one for my queue, for sure.

A very helpful thread.

Do you dislike her personna, looks, that type of show, or specific content hinted at in the trailers, or other? (If you don't mind; I am prying a bit, but for understanding, not to challenge your taste. [Mine is very challengeable]);)

Which shows will crash and burn?

The last new show I watched was "The Paul Rieser Show", how horrible this show was. It was cancelled after two episodes. I just don't understand how they can actually air a show without realizing its gonna be that bad.

I predict "2 Broke Girls" as a flop based on the promotional previews alone. Is this what the yuts of today find funny?

"Do you know the President? Yes. Do you have a horse? Yes. Do you know Paris Hilton? No, she's a hundred" followed by way to much laughter on the laugh track.
and "Can you make a hot chocolate? ..{gets sprayed with cream}... nailed it."
and, "Is this is where I supposed to feel sorry for you? " "A well adjusted person would." ..."I'm good inside..." laugh track. plus too many other un-funny lines.

I could be absolutely wrong, but my opinion is these previews are horrible. Maybe this is what the yuts of today find funny?
