Poll: Which Yet-to-Premiere Show Will Save the Season?

Categories: Broadcast TV

October 4th, 2012

Let's face facts. It was a dismal premiere week for the broadcast networks, with numerous highly promoted new shows flopping. The Cancellation Bear is the only mammal who is happy with the new fall line up. But all is not lost. There are plenty of new shows that have yet to premiere. One of them could be a breakout, game changing hit. One of them could be the show that *cue dramatic music* saves network television. Take your best guess in the poll, then explain your reasoning in the comments.

    Thasnks alexjones. I will add it.

  • peter

    The Following with Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy?

  • Jonathan

    Why isn’t Arrow in the poll?

  • omabin

    Arrow is missing

  • EatMorePez

    I vote Arrow. Stephen Amell’s abs will save the day!

  • 1mars

    Yak, if that is our choices, nets are in great trouble, nothing there I am even interested in even sampling.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Honestly, none of those. Can there be a “None of these” option?

  • Jack S

    Easily Nashville out of the options, I reckon it will do similar to what Revenge did in the same slot last season. The Following will hopefully give Fox the hit they need at midseason.

    My gut insinct isn’t great for Arrow. It should be a hit by CW standards but that wouldn’t be saying much.

  • Cristian

    None of these shows look even remotely appealing to me. This was by far the worst fall line-up of new shows in recent memory.

  • ron

    my guess is Nashville and Arrow both will be save!

    BTW LMAO at those line ups

  • romo

    Need a NONE vote option.

  • omabin

    The thing is that once you insert the CW into the mix, it all becomes relative. I think Arrow has a great chance of being the biggest new hit of the season for any network, if you consider the ratings of each network individually. But of course it is not the next NCSI in absolute terms.

    Out of the big 4, I am going with Nashville because, well, the coice is between Nashville, Chicago Fire and Malibu Country.

    For Midseason, The Following and possibly and NBC show, depending on the schedule

  • Baqinardo

    Chicago Fire could be a hit.
    At least on premiere.
    Bcoz [cant believe i’m gonna write it] Lady Gaga promotes it on her Twitter.
    Saying that her boyfriend on the show. MAYBE that will attract some of her fans.

  • John_M

    I vote none of the above – even if it is an option – the tv landscape continues to adjust – there’s nothing even remotely ‘hit worthy’ listed there

    And hell – 3 of the shows listed are on the CW

    and of course the show (rightly or wrongly is up to you) ignores all mid season premieres scheduled

  • s0303

    the following…but out of these choices, i went with arrow…though nashville may do well also.

  • Tom

    Nashville seems like the only option that can be a legitimate hit, while Arrow could run at the CW average until the network folds.

  • Hillbilly

    I went with Arrow. CW needs something good to happen for them.

    :shock: Sara Bibel speaks. :shock: Hiya Sara. ;)

  • Californiadgd

    Nashville will fail fast.
    Arrow is possible hit for CW.
    Chicago Fire will be okey I gues, but hit…we will see.
    BATB is maybe the next SC.
    The Following will be around 2.5-3.0 wich is very good for FOX.
    I really don’t know averything is boza

  • Honey Badger

    Thanks Sara Bibel, This site is fun!
