Favorite New TV Shows

I was asked on my formspring: "What is your favorite new show on TV these days?"

Well, there are actually a couple new shows that I am into.

The Playboy Club (NBC) :  I wanted to list it, but there is no need to elaborate since it's already been canceled. :-\

Person of Interest (CBS) : I like the premise. There is a computer program that predicts the identity of people connected to violent crimes that will take place in the future. However, the program has its limitations; it cannot predict whether the person will be a victim, perpetrator, or witness, nor can it predict when or where the crime will take place. So the main character John Reese, played by Jim Caviezel, a former CIA agent is "hired" to track down the people, and stop whatever crime from happening. It's a nice spy type show, which I like, mixed with the fact that you don't know what role the "target" plays in the crime going to be committed so it's kind of a mystery. The only thing I DON'T like about the show is Taraji P. Henson. She just doesn't do it for me in her role, which is a police officer trying to track Jim Caviezel's character.

Charlie's Angels (ABC) : We all know Charlie's Angels. I'm very happy with the casting: having a Black Angel, and having a Latino Bosley. Once again I like the spy show premise. The show uses a really solid formula of get a case, go undercover to crack a case, something goes wrong and drama ensues, solve the case. The only thing that really turns me off about it is the excessive brand name dropping and mentions of shoes. It's like, o.k., we get it, you're women, you like clothes and shoes, but must it be so overt? I'm wondering if the name dropping is actually paid advertising lol.

American Horror Story (FX) : I LOVE this. I've only watched the pilot but I already think it's great. The main premise is a family of three who just moved into a new house...which of course is haunted. I can already tell each episode is going to pack an hour of creepy goodness, and I'm all for that. It's pretty much a good horror movie, that you only get an hour of each week.

New Girl (FOX): This show is HILARIOUS. Zooey Deschanel is beautiful and hilarious. I don't even think any of the other characters are that great, but she SHINES.

What new TV shows are you into this season?

  1. I'm enjoying Up All Night and New Girl. I happened to catch an episode of Two Broke Girls and it was funny though I'm not sure if I'll watch it too often. We'll have to see. Generally if a show isn't on Hulu or On Demand I don't bother getting into it.

  4. Dang...they cancelled the Playboy Club already!?! LOL I saw a preview of it & immediately thought the idea stemmed from MadMen. The appearance of Naturi Naughton confirmed it in my mind.

    It's not a new TV show, but I recently started watching Top Shot...Colby Donaldson cracks me up.

  5. @MerelyMarie- yea, it seemed like it spawned from Naturi's role on Mad Men, I thought it would get as huge a following as Mad Men, I guess not :-( lol

  7. @socialitedreams - that's what I'm saying! It was not even scandalous! It was just people who don't like the Playboy brand at all.

  8. I enjoy New Girl, Up all night and Happy Endings. They are all similar and I think it speaks to the point I am at in my life.

  9. Two broke girls looks good but there are so many good shows out there!!! TV execs are doing a great job of putting out entertaining programming but how is it affecting society? (Maybe I'll ask you on formspring :-))
