I can understand Go On and Revolution getting the full season order, but the New Normal certainly doesn't deserve it imo.


I agree. Spent 10 min. with New Normal, laughs seemed forced & the characters weren't likeable. Go On is one of our fav's so far. Neighbors seems like a 3rd Rock from the Sun. 1st episode ok.

Yeah, the brilliant Seven Days in May--and to some extent even Last Resort--is almost shockingly relevant today in a time where certain politicians are routinely using phrases like "Second Amendment solutions" and "the President is not really an American". The extrapolations from that mentality lead directly to takeover conspiracies, nothing subtle about it.

I would say I hope for Last Resort to get another go-round just based on its bold and all-too-relevant premise. Just lose the Gilligan crap.

"The Mindy Project" was picked up for a full season, so strike that from the watch list I guess...

Mindy was mildly clever but I can't stand looking at her. Ben & Kate has 2 babes. Done deal.

TMP has Anna Camp in it though (:blush:)...


I liked the first episode of TMP so-so... but the second episode was far superior to the first episode in my mind, and has earned additional chances.

While I find Dakota Johnson attractive, I find B&K very boring. The commercials for it looked really cute, but it's not entertaining to me at all. I'm not a violent person, but Ben could change that about me...

I'll give it a few more tries, but I'm not sure it's Series Link is long for my DVR...

Maybe I'll give TMP another shot. And B&K could go South pretty fast, it's on the bubble on my DVR. Tried to watch a new Up All Night, and I really like Applegate and Arnett as comic talents, but Maya Rudolph is just beyond insufferable and kills the show for me. And the writing is crap, although those individual uber-hipster throwaway gags and bits remain strong. If the show just lost Rudolph I'd be back.

Bummed they delayed the onset of Whitney as well. Really looking forward to it.

Unreal! all yak, yak, yak and not funny. I mean come on, I watched a bit of the first episode, and a little bit of subsequent ones and it was all the same. yak, yak, yak and not funny!

I suppose that means that old farts like me just don't understand 'modern' sitcoms... :)

My wife has been trying to watch it. She's not very impressed with it, but then she keeps reminding herself that The Office and Parks and Recreation were also not very good in the beginning either. It's possible that it just needs to find its footing. She was one of the head writers for The Office, so she does know comedy.

Considering NBC destroyed The Office, like they do every other show they steal from the UK, and it's not funny at all I would say she doesn't know comedy. Her new show backs that up.

CBS is pulling Friday night legal drama Made In Jersey from its schedule after only two episodes. That makes Jersey the first cancelled TV show of the fall.

I was predicting Mob Doctor, but there was speculation that Fox didn't want the publicity of having the first cancelled series of the season. Well, now that CBS has that honor, I suspect that FOX will very quickly follow with Mob Doctor. The end of the EW article above speculates that FOX will show all episodes of Mob Doctor, but it depends on how much money they are prepared to lose on it.

About Community, it is interesting if you look at shows with a canned laugh track versus those without the laugh tracks usually yield better ratings. Then watch the clips of those shows with the laugh tracks removed and see how bad they are. Makes you wonder how that reflects on the people who watch these shows that let you know when to laugh versus those like Community that demand you pay some kind of attention to what is going on.

That's one I hadn't even started watching. Guess I'll just delete the recordings.

And I was looking forward to seeing Janet Montgomery. :(

I watched the pilot of Made in Jersey on the CBS website a couple of weeks back, and had a strong feeling it would be cancelled fast, but not that fast! The title was stupid and the plot bland.

I refuse to watch any show with a laugh track (which eliminates 99% of the sitcoms). I find laugh tracks even more irritating than listening to the repetitious stump speeches of the candidates.

While it was defintely rocky at the start, The Office did find it's voice for a good many seasons. Part of the issue with the show (and other British show remakes) at first is that it tries to rehash the same episodes from the British version. Once they go off onto their own story lines, the show gets a lot better. I think with Steve Carrell leaving that it has finally hit its end though.

Agreed and I believe this is the final season.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I've watched a couple of episodes from every season so far just to see how it has progressed and I've been less than thrilled each time.

I'm still expecting the announcement of "The Mob Doctor" being cancelled at any time.

I guess "The Neighbors" got an additional order for more scripts. It isn't for more shows, but that indicates it isn't being thought of for cancellation.

I think the Mob Doctor is a good show . This should be good for FOX .
