But why wait until fall to meet these colorful characters? The netlet has just released clips from a few of their new series, and we’ve compiled them all right here for your viewing pleasure. (Clips for midseason entries Cult and The Carrie Diaries will be added as soon as they become available.)

  • Emily Owens MD has to be the WORST name for a TV show, ever.

  • Seriously? Beauty and the Beast, and the new medical drama look horrible!!! The CW cancelled The Secret Circle for this garbage?! Ick. They’re going to have to pick up a whole bunch more pilots next year, because both of those look like major flops

  • Will there be proper trailers anytime soon? It’s really hard to discern the scope of each show from just one scene.

  • “Emily Owens, MD” and “Beauty and the Beast” look just plain awful. (“Arrow” looks fine but nothing special) Seriously, what carpet licking moron thought Kristin Kreuk would be a great replacement for Linda Hamilton?!?!

    While I personally didn’t like the Secret Circle (Useless protagonist and lack of interesting male characters) I have to admit it was still better then these shows!

    • Do you not see the flaws in your argument? You are judging a show from a 2min scene?
      You have no idea if it’s going to be good or not. Come on…..grow up.

  • Green Arriw has great abs but what about his acting?

    • His pull-up routine was most impressive.

  • Emily Owens, MD = complete fail CW. That was the worst preview clip ever and the title change is rancid. It will get cancelled faster than Lone Star. Is it trying to be Grey’s, or Scrubs. Either way, not funny and has unlikeable characters. If only we could get Felicity back. now that was a show. Arrow i will watch.

  • These all look super cheesy. If they were going to do a Green Arrow show, they should’ve used Justin Hartley and followed with what was done in Smallville. Plus, Stephen Amell is a dbag. Speaking of Justin… glasses? He looks like a total dork. Not a cute one, either. Beauty and the Beast. I love the disney movie (Belle’s my favorite). However, all I have to say is “ugh.”

    • They didn’t use Justin Hartley because they wanted to keep this SEPARATE from Smallville. Furthermore the character of Green Arrow in Smallville is almost completely different from his comic book counterpart!

      But I do agree with you on the rest!

  • To everyone who is saying that The CW’S Beauty and The Beast looks aweful, do you think that means that ABC’S B&B will be,too? Speaking of B&B, that whole clip REEKED of Lana Lang! I was waiting for Tom to pop-up. Hope they fix that if it has any chance of surviving beyond 1 season.

    • ABC’s Beauty and the Beast did not picked up for series so The CW’s is the only one that will be on in the fall.

  • definitely gonna check out arrow but thats about it

  • The only one I’m fairly certain I might end up watching is Emily Owens MD, because I LOVE Mamie Gummer. The B and B preview makes it clear KK still can’t act. And I didn’t even finish the Arrow preview, it bored me. I wish they had picked up the Selection, I hope it still gets done at some point or we can at least see the pilot.

  • Arrow looks like Batman Begins….almost too much. Not that I mind rock hard abs…but that whole sequence was so Batman-like.
    I’ll check that one out before Beauty and the Beast (that’s been tried before and just didn’t work).

  • B&B looks horrible! Really bad acting and an overall cliche. Ugh.
    Not sure about Arrow. I’d have to see the other characters to decide if it’s any good. Katie Cassidy might sway me if she plays a cool chick.
    Medical drama seems kinda generic. Might give it a shot. Maybe.
    Overall I’m disappointed. I’d rather have seen Ringer or Secret Circle continue if this is what we get instead. The midseason shows sound interesting, but who knows what they’ll actually do with them…

  • The full trailer for Arrow is out now it looks pretty good.

  • Arrow and Beauty and the Best looks lame.

  • These all had the potential for me to watch them this fall from the write-ups, but these clips did absolutely nothing for me to say yay or nay.

  • Just from hearing an seeing the preview of Beauty and the Beast i say HELL NO. If you want to watch it than its best seeing the original. at least see a clip of it, the music the acting, the costumes. Its enought to make your heart melt, its true love beyone words.
