Fall TV 2013: Which New Shows Are You Most Looking Forward To? Vote!

Get More: Fall TV Preview, Polls

Best New Shows 2013To date, TVLine has offered its First Impressions of more than half of the new shows — largely focusing on the better (and the better of the worser) ones — coming your way this fall.

RELATED | TVLine’s Guide to New Fall Shows

Now, though, is the time for a mass gut check, whereby you simply cast your votes for the THREE (3) NEW COMEDIES and THREE (3) NEW DRAMAS you are most excited to sample as the new TV season unfolds this fall.

Then, as the ratings start circulating come mid-September, we’ll see if y’all put up or tuned out — recognizing, of course, that only 0.02 percent of U.S. TV households are actually sampled by Nielsen. We also should(/could) get a taste for which noobs are fated to go up in flames, which is also great sport.

But enough preamble: Ready, set, vote!

  • almost human, blacklist and marvels agents of shield for the three dramas and the crazy ones, michael j fox show and brooklyn nine nine for the comedys. nothing else looks quite as good

    • I agree, nothing besides a few look good! Hostages…how can that concept last, who is going to keep person week after week, person person after person, to save their family? Sean Hayes is talented, the show looks bad, Anger Management bad. Moms looks like Two Broke girls with a kid. Agents of the Shield, The Crazy Ones, and I would include, Sleepy Hollow seem to be the only orignal shows this season the rest is a rehash or have a concept that works long term.

      • It is supposed to be a 15-episode limited series.

        Comment by Simon Jester – August 19, 2013 12:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • CBS denied that at a TCA panel. They said that the only limit was the number of episodes they plan to have in a season, which is 15. I’m curious what they intend to do after season 1, but I guess they are hoping that by being vague, curiosity will inspire people to tune in.

    • I picked almost exactly the same as you with just 1 change, i picked Trophy Wife instead of The Michael J Fox Show, nothing against TMJFS, i really like him, but im a big fan of Bradley Whitford, hoping he has better luck with ratings than his last 2 lead roles (even though they were both fantastic).

  • I generally like comedies, but among the new shows, there are many more dramas I am excited about than comedies.

    Comment by Hamza – August 19, 2013 11:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I feel the same. The only one I’m hopeful about is Mom and that’s because I love Allison Janney in virtually everything she’s done.

  • Can I just vote for 6 Dramas–because the comedy side looks pretty slim this year.

    • My thoughts exactly

      Comment by Ty – August 19, 2013 01:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Lucky 7 and the Michael J. Fox show probably have the best chance of being fantastic, but SHIELD, The Tomorrow People, Hostages, Wonderland, The Blacklist, and Trophy Wife look really good too.

    Comment by Sam – August 19, 2013 11:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • None of the above. I can’t wait until Surviving Jack is on Fox. I’m so looking forward to seeing Chris Meloni back on my TV. It being a comedy just it makes it all the better.

  • Wish more people were looking forward to Enlisted… I think it’s gonna be good, but doesn’t seem like a show alot of people will turn into; so even if it’s good it probably won’t last.

    • That’s one of the shows I have on my “New shows that will get cancelled” list

      Comment by Babar – August 19, 2013 12:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I know!!! Enlisted in the fall show that I am MOST looking forward to, but it has gotten virtually no publicity and it is airing on Friday nights! If that isn’t a recipe for early cancellation then I don’t know what is. But it’s such a Jane because the cast and plot are so promising!!!!! :(

  • Well, when you put it that way… not much at all. I picked one comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” which looks like it could possibly be interesting, though it could go either way.

    And two dramas, “Almost Human” and “Sleepy Hollow”. The rest just reminded me of how weak TV has been in recent years. There was a time when it was hard to schedule what to watch and when. Now it’s just a matter of deciding on which DVD set to pop out when I’m bored.

    I think there should be a “Which show repulses you the most” section. In which case, “Betrayal” and “Dads”. One I find offensive because I’m sick of adultery on TV, which ABC has done a lot of lately. The other I find repulsive because it looks like an insult to humanity as a whole.

    • And I swear, I’m not a prude or a weirdo. I’m just tired of adultery on TV. TV marriage means almost as little as TV death these days.

      Comment by Drew – August 19, 2013 12:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I couldn’t agree more, Drew. I, too, am sick of the crap that keeps coming out- and if people think I’m a prude, I don’t GAC…too bad. I value family (as opposed to relatives) above everything but my Salvation.

        • The commercial is just insulting. Her husband won’t drop his work in the middle of the day to go out for coffee, so logically she decides to cheat on him. As though being bored is a good excuse. Is the audience supposed to feel bad for her?

          Comment by Drew – August 19, 2013 04:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Yeah, but that’s how the demon that the “women’s lib movement” created.

            Comment by hijoy – August 27, 2013 12:42 PM PDT  
    • ABC and the networks should take note from Duck Dynasty, people want a show with a traditional family that loves and respects each other. Adultery, horrible kids, moronic spouses, is getting old. That show gets a 5.0 in the ratings because there is nothing like it, why there was not a new network show in the spirit of the Cosby Show or just a simple family show is beyond me. Ironic that the concept, of the unconventional has become so conventional, that conventional is now unconventional.

  • Agents of SHIELD, Sleepy Hollow, and The Blacklist topped my drama list, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Crazy Ones, and The Michael J. Fox Show were my choices for comedies.

  • I’m actually excited for Dads and I hate how everyone is automatically hating on it just because if a few racial jokes. What do you expect? It’s the writers of Ted and Seth MacFarlane are involved and I’ve always been a huge fan of his work no matter how controversial. They never mean any harm, it’s for people who have a great sense of humor!

    Comment by Mark – August 19, 2013 12:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Thanks for letting me know/reminding me that this is from the writers of Ted and Seth MacFarlane. I didn’t mind the trumped-up racial controversy. However, I want nothing to do with those anti-creative un-entertaining hacks.

    • I don’t care about racial jokes. Racial jokes can actually be funny. But the commercials look absolutely horrible for this show. They make The Mindy Project look good by comparison. It just looks really, really bad.

      Comment by Drew – August 19, 2013 04:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The preview for that show was so bad it made me want to shoot my television!

      • Just look at the bright side. It’ll be cancelled by Christmas and Raising Hope will be back on Tuesday where it belongs! That thought alone is enough that I’m willing to slog through it till then.

  • The Blacklist is miles ahead of any other new show. I think I’m only gonna try this one for now.

    Comment by Daisy – August 19, 2013 12:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m reluctant to get into it only because 75% of the shows I start watching on NBC get canceled after one season. I was in shock when Hannibal was renewed, but extremely grateful. If NBC already has so few viewers, wouldn’t it be in there best interest to advertise for there shows on more than just their own network. I think Parenthood has only made it this far due to loyal fans sticking with it despite its jumping timeslots and spreading the word to their friends.

      Comment by Cassandra – August 19, 2013 01:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree that NBC doesn’t have the best track record with new shows, but last year they did pretty well. Chicago Fire and Revolution were both hits, and I watched them both from the beginning which usually doesn’t mean a show will last at all. All in I’d say their drama lineup looks pretty good this year too, though I doubt Ironside will last very long. It’s their comedies that need a lot of work!

    Comment by Brandy – August 19, 2013 12:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My comedy picks are The Michael J. Fox Show. Trophy Wife, and The Crazy Ones. Those three were easy for me. But the drama choices were harder. I went with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Blacklist, and OUAT in Wonderland, but Hostages and The Tomorrow People were big ones too.

    Comment by Andy – August 19, 2013 12:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I went with Crazy Ones, Trophy Wife, and Mom for comedy and Agents of SHIELD, The Tomorrow People, and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland for drama.

    I will also check out Almost Human, Sleepy Hollow, and Hostages, but maybe I after I see the ratings first.

    I personally feel that the Michael J Fox Show and Blacklist are both being overhyped, but that might be my anti-NBC bias :)

  • I’m not a comedy person, so pretty much nothing in that column. I settled on Blacklist, Tomorrow People (I loved the original) and Marvelous Agents of Shield. I would add Once Upon a Time in Neverland to those.

  • I picked Sleepy Hollow, S.H.E.I.L.D. and Wonderland.. all were awesome at Comic-con.. I would also add that Dracula is going to be amazing too – if the rest of the hsow is as good as what they previewed.

    Comment by Aleana – August 19, 2013 01:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It was hard for me to actually choose three, since i basically watch anything, so i just went with the ones that seemed better for me:
    Comedies: Michael J. Fox show, The Crazy Ones, and Super Fun Night (it looked fun, and i love Rebel Wilson so don’t judge :p)
    Dramas: Hostages (I seriously don’t care about how they’re going to stretch the story, Toni Colette is awesome so i’ll just enjoy the show), Lucky 7, and SHIELD.

    * I’ll be checking all of ABC’s new comedies tbh, they really have the best ones especially Trophy Wife.
    * There’s so much scifi dramas this season! That’s why i’ll check out Lucky 7 which seems a little grounded.
    I still don’t get why The Blacklist is getting so much hype. I’ll have to wait and see, but if it has a good cliffhanger at the end of the pilot i’ll stick around.

    So yeah, i’ll be watching a lot of new shows. Sucks that most of them premiere when i’ll be getting ready for my SATs, but who needs college right?

  • How come cable shows aren’t in the poll?

    Comedy: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Hello Ladies, and tie between The Michael J Fox Show (still hate that name with a passion) and Trophy Wife.

    Drama: Agents of SHIELD, Masters of Sex, Mob City.

    Comment by Superhero – August 19, 2013 03:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I only plan on checking out maybe 5 or 6 of those 14 comedies…. but I will be checking out nearly every single one on the drama list (with the exception of Lucky 7). The comedies definitely struck me as a little too… lame.

    Comment by AT – August 19, 2013 03:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • For dramas I picked SHIELD, OUAT In Wonderland and The Blacklist, but I also really wanna see The Originals, Hostages and The Tomorrow People. For comedies I picked Trophy Wife, MJF Show and Mom, but I also wanna see The Goldbergs. And why is everybody picking Brooklyn 99 if they know it’s gonna get canceled?

    Comment by Kissan – August 19, 2013 03:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • Marvel Agents of Shield is gonna be must see TV for me, I’m also excited to watch Sleepy Hollow and Almost Human (just b/c I’m a big Karl Urban fan). Now while I’m pretty sure “Agents” will be a hit show with the ratings, I’m worried about “Hollow” and “Human” on FOX…the most fickle networks that cancels everything with potential…I hope all 3 of those shows make it (at least a full season).

  • i just know i’m gonna love Shield and The Blacklist

    I prefer Andy Samberg in small doses but Brooklyn looked funny in the clips I’ve seen

    always been a robin Williams fan and adding buffy as his daughter just seals the deal for me

    Comment by meatwad – August 19, 2013 08:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The problem for me with The Crazy Ones is two-fold. One, a little bit of Robin Williams goes a LONG way, and the trailer I saw suggests we’re gonna get way too much of him. And two, even without that problem, there’s the fact it’s up against Grey’s Anatomy. I will ALWAYS choose Grey’s first and foremost.

  • I voted for Michael J Fox Show. LOVE MJF! I do like Maggie Lawson though and i’m glad that she is still going to be continuing on Psych as well but Back In The Game is AWFUL! I don’t even know HOW it got the green light. I was at a screening of the pilot and it was just SO bad, and so uninspired, and the premise is laughable. Sorry Mags.

    Comment by Jay – August 20, 2013 12:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • C’mon give it a chance before you give up on it, the first couple episodes determine a show not just the pilot where the writers don’t know the actors and vice versa. The writing gets better as the series goes on particularly with comedy!

      Comment by Lyss – August 20, 2013 05:31 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Seriously if i thought it would be worth it i would, but i saw it and i am sorry but it was THAT bad. I love Maggie so much, i always have, and it’s a real shame, especially when you compare it to the amazing role she has as Juliet O’Hara on Psych. After i saw the pilot i was just left wondering what drove her to take on this role, because i couldn’t understand it.
