NBC has released trailers for five new shows
The Michael J. Fox Show:
Sean Saves the World:
Welcome to the Family:
That makes it seem more logical, but it’s still on odd decision. I’ll take anything that’ll help Parenthood survive in that time slot though.
I thought MJF Show looked like the worst of the comedies but it wasn’t terrible. I like the boy’s parents and girl’s father in Welcome to the Family. Too bad this show is getting the worst timeslot. SSTW looked eh. I like SH and whoever is playing his mom but the jokes seem stale.
Dracula is not my thing but looks like a decent fit with Grimm.
Ironside looks boring.
I’m watching Dracula; he was so good on The Tudors.
All 6 of the pilots for NBC’s new fall shows look far stronger than last years crop of new shows!
Ironside and Blacklist are classic CBS-style procedurals and will probably do really well.
I think I’m liking the flow of the Thursday comedies. Mike O’Malley will retain a lot of Parks and Rec’s M18-34 audience so that’s a good pairing even if Parks isn’t a family show.
Sean Hayes’ show will appeal to women, but since it’s a multi-cam I’m sure some guys will stick around especially in anticipation for the Michael J Fox show which will probably do well with men and women, and lead right into Parenthood.
Hope the lineup works out, but if it doesn’t at least we still have Community.
Here is my grade for NBC trailers
Blacklist: A (Looks fantastic and fresh, hope it does well for NBC)
Dracula: B+ (I’m a sucker for genre shows. Looks pretty good, could be cheesy)
Micheal J Fox: B- (Looks like i could go either way, will check it out)
Welcome To The Family: D (The last joke made me laugh, nothing else did)
Ironside: D (Another cop show, this time with a wheelchair, who cares?)
Sean Saves: F (Looks terrible, a 90’s type family comedy in 2013, no thanks)
The MJF show almost seems like their making fun of him; it’s like watching Ozzy Osbourne.
Sean Saves the World is going to bomb like The New Normal; I hope they change their mind about airing it.
Welcome To The Family also looks bad.
Then another cop show.
Dracula will pair very well with Grimm.
Dracula is only 10 episodes? Then whats the point
The difference this season is casting. A lot of these shows have really good casts and the chemistry is better. Thats the trouble with most network tv now is that most actors are bad. THis year on NBC at least not so much.
@charmedcraft “The MJF show almost seems like their making fun of him”
You do know that he has Parkinsons right? So, he is making fun of himself. Whats wrong with that?
Sean Hayes show looks okay. But, while I’m not sure of the execution, I like the idea of Welcome to The Family. We need more multicultural families on network tv.
dracula – could be good. jonathan rhys meyers is a great fit. i’ll check it out unless the reviews are horrible.
ironside – LMAOOO. NEXT.
sean saves the world – sean is great and i got a few chuckles (unlike any other multi-cam comedy trailers these days) so i’ll be checking it out. looks like it has potential.
welcome to the family – eh. didn’t laugh much. i’ll try it out if the reviews are there.
TMJFS – by far the best looking trailer. quite a few funny moments. lots of charm. definitely on my list.
and i’m not optimistic about the blacklist. looks like another high-concept drama from NBC that looks cool, won’t deliver, and will slowly decline in the ratings aka the event 2.0/revolution 2.0
“You do know that he has Parkinsons right? So, he is making fun of himself. Whats wrong with that?”
I know he has Parkinsons, that’s why it’s hard to watch him. It seems like it should be a reality show not a comedy.
Dracula looked ok, but i’ll be watching Grimm so i’ll check it out.
MJF looked really good, actually excited about this one. Same with Blacklist
Welcome to the Family….no strong opinion. But its on after Parks, which is my favorite show so i will probably give it a shot. Same with SSTW
Ironside might get a viewing after SVU for me, but if South Park is back before it premieres i’ll skip
Blacklist: A- (Looks really good but similar to a lot of other shows)
Dracula: c- (weak trailer)
Ironside: F (stopped the trailer mid way)
The Michael J. Fox Show: C+ (why do people think that Parkinson’s or a self help group is funny?)
Sean Saves the World: A (seems like fun for everyone)
Welcome to the Family: B (like the actors but like everyone has said would have made a great movie)
The best TV show trailer I’ve seen so far is The Blacklist. James Spader is an amazing actor, the trailer looked great, and I’m looking forward to it
Dracula: I love sci-fi and fantasy (ya, I’m a CW and Syfy TV show watcher), so I’ll give this show a chance. I have no idea how good or bad it will be.
Ironside: Meh. I prefer cop shows like Castle.
The Michael J. Fox show: I think he’s an amazing actor, and I loved Family Ties and the Back to the Future movies. I’ll give it a chance, but I hope he doesn’t put too much politics into it.
Sean Saves the World: Sean was very funny as Jack in Will & Grace, so I’ll give this show a shot. Like MJF show, though, I don’t want to see a political agenda in it.
Welcome to the Family: Could be funny, we’ll see.
The Michael J. Fox show looks amazing, Welcome to the Family looks pretty good, and Sean Saves the World looks awful. Let’s see how this plays out.
dracula may do okay, but claiming that it won’t because it’s a vampire show is a bit silly. vampire stories have been interesting to people for almost 200 years.
it’s not like crime/lawyer/doctor shows stopped 30 or 40 years ago because there were previously some popular ones. there are plenty of people like me out there that always give fantasy/sci-fi shows a fair watch. you might classify vampire shows as horror, but i don’t see them that way.
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is very appealing. He has the same type of swagger as Johnny Depp. He just seems like a very fascinating individual and is able to peak interest with all his performances. I’m not really into Vampire pictures but he just seems to have embodied this character that I have to give this show a try.
Blair Underwood is a great actor and I think this show is a good fit for him. I am just be concerned about the supporting players and also the writing.
Welcome to the Family looks horrible. CBS should definately go with the 2 hour comedy night on Friday. A show such as Rules of Engagement would be able to get better ratings than those comedies in the 8pm hour on NBC.
