Tonight, two new series premiere.
The first, crime procedural Motive premieres on ABC. Well, it’s new to the U.S. It’s a Canadian import, like another ABC summer series Rookie Blue. Motive is a hit in Canada, but will it work here? Because it is premiering during the regular season, Motive faces stiff competition by summer series standards from the season finale of Hawaii Five-0 and a new episode of Revolution. So how do you think it’s going to do? Make your predictions.
The second is the long delayed comedy The Goodwin Games on FOX. It was announced with great fanfare at last year’s upfronts. It stars two popular actors, Scott Foley and Becki Newton. But it never premiered. Now it’s getting classic summer burn-off treatment, airing as FOX’s sole new episode against new episodes of The Voice and the Dancing With the Stars season finale. So how low do you think the ratings for its premiere are going to go?
