Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
The fall TV season is almost upon us and as a result the networks are revealing more and more of their line-ups so I figured I would take a gander at some of the trailers being put out for public consumption and see which ones hook me based on their 2 to 5 minutes of video. In the long run I may end up hating all of these shows but for right now these are the best looking shows based on just trailers.
Following in the footsteps of my Best Looking New Fall TV Shows post I felt it necessary to address the flip side. I was pretty spot on with some of my choices from last years post (I saw the horrible writing on the wall with MULANEY) and completely wrong on one in particular (alas poor SELFIE, we hardly knew ye). So sit back, relax and let me provide a PSA to any unsuspecting TV viewers to stay far away from the shows under the cut.
I did this last year and figured it was something worth doing annually just because I am a TV aficionado and I like to come back after a season is over to see if my first impressions turned out to be correct (I was all over the place with last year’s picks). So strap in and take a gander at what I think are the best looking shows the big broadcast networks plan on giving us next season.
Every fall the TV networks debut a slew of new shows with high hopes for their success and every fall some of those shows die almost immediate deaths (last season the first to go was CBS’s MADE IN JERSEY) . So which of this fall’s crop of new shows will be the first ones to meet the executioner?
Last month the TV networks debuted their new offerings for the fall season and while some shows look very promising like The Flash, Constantine, Grace Point (the US adaptation of Broadchurch) and The Whispers; other shows look downright abysmal. So with that in mind I have picked the worst of the bunch as a public service to help innocent TV viewers avoid the awful.
