ABC's new fall lineup. @ 03:25 am

So, I went through and watched all the previews for the new fall shows on ABC... and I snagged a few that I like the most and posted them here along with my own comments and critiques... there are a lot more on the site if you want to go look at all of them yourself. I am LJ-cutting because I am a nice person.

"Cougar Town"

I love Courtney Cox and I am glad she is back on TV again... I really enjoyed "Dirt" and was sad when it got cancelled... another victim of the writer's strike. This new one looks interesting. The first minute or so of the preview I was pretty much cringing and expecting the imminent cancellation, but then when it got closer to the end and showed her actually trying to date, it got more interesting. I think if she ends up in a relationship with a younger guy, the show could be really interesting (although the premise does remind me of that failed Fern Drescher show from a few years back)… on the other hand if she is trying to hook up with someone new all the time, I can see the show getting really stupid really fast. I also find the show’s name very unfortunate… it just sounds like some cheesy reality show. I hope it goes well, but I am not holding my breath.


The movie “Witches of Eastwick” re-imagined as a series. I am crossing my fingers and hoping this one goes well as I am a fan of the original movie… it’s going to be really interesting to see how well this translates. I just hope it doesn’t suck… and in my opinion, the guy playing the Jack Nicholson role is just not attractive at all (not that I ever though Nicholson was attractive either – but he was at least well known).

"Flash Forward"

This is one of the series that I am looking forward to the most… It does seem to be one of a bunch of similar shows that are cropping up this year (assuming that the time loss is alien-oriented). I assume these show are popping up based on the success of Fringe (which I love). There is a lot they can do with this premise. Hopefully it will stick around.

"Modern Family"

This one looks good… but it also looks like the kind of show that get cancelled easily. I will cross my fingers and hope for the best.


This is another show I am very excited about… The cast looks amazing and if I didn’t know it was a series, I would have thought it was a movie trailer. This one apparently is going to be a mid-season show, so I don’t know if it’s going to be a mini-series, or a short season or what… but whatever it is going to be, I am excited about it.

“Scrubs – Interns”
They don’t have a trailer posted for this yet... but it is definitely going to be interesting having this show return for another season (another mid-season show) with the fact that almost the ENTIRE cast has moved on to other shows when the series ended. Apparently the show is now going to focus on the new group of interns that were supporting characters this past season… I don’t know how the show is going to do without the cast that people have loved for the past 8 years.

More about new shows on other networks over the next few days.

Cougar Town: This looks like it has potential.

Witches of Eastwick: Is it shallow of me to not be sure, because, like you, I don't think the lead male is all that hot?

Modern Family: I'll give that a shot.

Flash Forward: Oooooh. Interesting.

V: OMG, aliens! I'm totally there.
