TV Fall Schedules: One Big Fat Update

TV Fall Schedules: One Big Fat Update

ABC, NBC and CBS’s fall schedules overall seem disappointing to me, some more than others (I’m looking at you, ABC!) There are a few that look promising. Nevertheless, here they are… the good, the bad, and the honky-tonk. (SupaScoot here. I’ll give you my thoughts along the way with the pictures cause I like to step all over other people’s articles. Sorry Michelle... I’m not sorry) 

ABC

Last Resort:

This is a thriller that takes place in a submarine 500 feet beneath the ocean’s surface, and then an exotic island. This, I will not be watching. The ocean terrifies me.

[Doc - It's a Shawn Ryan show starring Andre Braugher and T-1000. I will be watching.]

Nashville:

This show looks absolutely terrible. Nashville is about a washed-up country singer who pairs up with a young country star. Not only does the plot sound terrible like a Lifetime movie… but it stars Hayden Panettiere. Pass.

Nothing about this looks good. Except Connie Britton. You look good, Connie.

How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life:

I know that I sound cynical, but this show doesn’t look like a winner. I love Sarah Chalke, but I am already bored with the plot. A single mom moves in with her parents. It’s all been done. [Doc: Drink 7-Up] 

Holy shit. Jon Dore? Orlando Jones? Becky 2? This should be like electric dynamite… but won’t be.

666 Park Avenue:

This one looks like it might be interesting. 666 Park Avenue is one of those “Be careful what you wish for” shows. I know that’s been done, but this seems slightly more exciting than that. An apartment building, which is run by evil and supernatural forces, exchanges all of your hopes and wildest dreams in exchange for your soul. I will probably watch this.

Mistresses:

It seems this show has been pushed to next summer. There’s not much to say about it, just that it has a scantily clad Alyssa Milano and lesbians. Oh hey, look! It won you over.

No. Bad ABC. Bad ABC. Although… I do like girls. Okay, I’ll watch.

Zero Hour:

This is a conspiracy show, which means I will most likely check it out. Zero Hour is about a man who is the editor for a magazine for skeptics for 20 years, and then is pulled into a bizarre conspiracy.

Hey, it’s that guy. With conspiracies.

Family Tools:

A guy takes over a small business. Is there more to this? I hope so.

Oh come on. Reba was good in ‘Tremors’. That was it. Let it go.[/caption]

The Neighbors:

This show is about a family who, after moving into the suburbs, realizing all of their neighbors are aliens. This might be funny.

I want to watch ‘Twister’

CBS

Vegas:

This is based on a true story of a Las Vegas sheriff bringing order to the sin city. Vegas takes place in the 1960s, and stars Dennis Quaid. You can count on me watching this.

This is me not watching.[/caption]

Elementary: (As Explained Here)

This is a TV movie about Sherlock Holmes cases in New York City. It looks completely uninteresting to me, but then again, it has neither singing nor Mariska Hargitay.

Watch ‘Sherlock’ instead. Trust me. Benedict Cumberbatch

[Doc - I'm with Scoot here, eff this show. Go watch SHERLOCK.]

Made in Jersey:

While yawning, let me tell you about the plot of Made in Jersey. This show is about a young, hard-working female lawyer who competes with her colleagues by using her sass and resourcefulness. It sounds oddly similar to the plot of “Single Female Lawyer” from Futurama.

NBC

Revolution:

An unlikely group sets out to save the world after a fifteen year blackout. It sounds like it could be good, but it is unlikely.

Go On:

This show stars Matthew Perry as a cocky sportscaster. I actually am intrigued by this. I may give it a shot.

Good luck, Chandler. Eighth time’s a charm or something like that. Anyone else tired of feeling sorry for him?

Chicago Fire:

A thrilling drama about firefighters and their lives and troubles in Chicago. Since Dick Wolf will be producing this one, I will be watching it.

Nope.

Animal Practice:

A veterinary Scrubs? This show seems like it could be funny. There is a monkey, which is enough to make me see at least two episodes.

Me too.[/caption]

Guys With Kids:

Ah, the age-old funny story… giving a man a baby. How will they remain cool? How will they continue their love life? How will they juggle video games and feeding their children? I am bored.

Nope. I dislike children and their playthings.
