2014 New Fall TV Shows Preview

Scouring the TV landscape, we preview the new shows that the Fall Season has to offer. Thankfully, we have good taste so you don’t need to bother.

Every year, the networks roll out hope, promise, and optimism with their Fall TV premieres. By the late Fall, that turns into despair, anger, and reruns of ‘According to Jim.’ In order to help viewers manage their lives and DVRs, we have cut through the bullshit and are telling you where not to bother. We know a lot of people put a lot of hard work into these shows and we wish them the best as they look for new jobs in October.

A to Z

A To Z
Airs: October 2nd, 9:30pm on ABC

A-Z is a TV series that gives you a look at young couple’s relationship from the beginning to the break-up. So since this will probably be canceled before Z, they should have just named this A to C?

Prediction: Canceled in 3 episodes

Bad Judge

Bad Judge

Another legal comedy because nothing screams comedy than judges. How about bring back Night Court! America needs more Bull.

Prediction: Bad Judge is guilty of being unoriginal. Canceled after 5 episodes.

Black-ish

Black-ish
Airs: September 24th, 9:30pm on ABC

Gotham

Gotham

Gracepoint

Gracepoint

Prediction: Actually not canceled because it will only last 10 episodes.

How to Get Away With Murder

How To Get Away With Murder
Airs: September 25th, 10pm on ABC

Based on the title, this could be about Oscar Pistorius, OJ or Casey Anthony. But it’s actually about a bunch of lawyers. Just what we need, another damn lawyer show. People realize these people are assholes right?

Prediction: Motion denied! Canceled after series premiere.

Madam Secretary

Madam Secretary
Airs: September 21st, 8pm on CBS

Tea Leoni plays an ex-CIA analyst who becomes a Secretary of State. We expect lots of dramatic pauses while looking out of a window. Also, look out for the Ambassador from France, he gets kind of hands-y.

Prediction: The show will prematurely ej…err be canceled after 4 episodes.

Mulaney

Muloney
Airs: October 5th, 9:30pm on FOX

John Mulaney, the guy who wrote all of Bill Hader’s jokes on SNL and the same guy who couldn’t cut it as a cast member gets his own show. This just screams winner!

NCIS: New Orleans

NCIS: New Orleans
Airs: September 23rd, 9pm on CBS

This NCIS show is different I tell ya! It’s got um…different actors, ummm different storylines? Hey, it’s also set in New Orleans! One thing is for certain, Scott Bakula desperately needs a paycheck.

Red Band Society

Red Band Society
Airs: September 17th, 9pm on FOX

Red Band Society is about a group of teenagers living in a hospital ward. I guess one good thing about this show is you don’t have to get worried about being sick of a character. They will just die off in the next episode anyway.
