  • Concerned Citizen

    Interested in seeing how Revolution turns out. Not interested in The New Normal, but they would’ve been crazy to turn down a Ryan Murphy show in the state they’re in.

    Sweet. :)

  • kyle

    The New Normal – Basically the 2 dads from Modern Family get their own spinoff

    Revolution – could be a hit

  • luisl

    Hit or not i will see every episode of Revolution. Eric Kripke is a genious.

  • Survivor Fan

    Pilot season is here! Let’s get some renewals and cancellations soon.

  • kyle

    Also with NBC already ordering 3 new comedies, I’m a little concerned about Community.

    4 seasons and Syndication

  • rob60990

    I’d be interested in The New Normal.

  • atlanta

    More interested in Revolution than one more blended family sitcom.

  • SmG

    I’ll definetely check out The Revolution.

  • Mi

    Yes, Revolution!

    Can’t wait to see a new Kripke show again, I hope it’s as awesome as SPN but with a much bigger budget :)

  • Marc

    I want RoseAnn Barr!

  • Tony

    Not hearing much about Beautiful People.. :(

    That sounded like one of the best pilots of the season

  • Andrew

    Revolution will be a good show but the ratings will probably suck. Look at Awake, Prime Suspect…etc.

  • Joakim

    NBC seems to be ordering the same stuff that’s put them in the position their in now. More low-rated single-cams and complicated dramas that won’t last more than a season on the air. Would NBC wake up already?

  • Magnitude

    2 more new shows that won’t have a solid lead in

  • SmG

    Revolution synopsis:

    In this epic adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.

  • AD.

    Interested in Revolution. Kripke is awesome.

  • RHONJd

    Great news for Nene Leakes (Real Housewives of Atlanta) who has a recurring role/main role (not sure) on The New Normal! I know her fans must be happy, like me and Robert!! Go Nene!

  • rob60990

    Revolution seems like a high concept fail.

  • still good shows on tv

    I was hoping Revolution got picked up but I think it will be the next flash forward, the event, and terra nova.
