Two of NBC’s new comedies, Up All Night and Free Agents, premiered Wednesday night in a special post-America’s Got Talent time slot (a move that seemed to benefit the former more than the latter). It’s been a couple days at this point, but I have some quick thoughts on each after the jump.
The fall TV season officially kicks off tonight — with a new season of Parenthood on NBC and the return of 90210 and Sarah Michelle Gellar (in Ringer) on The CW — so I’m just in time to list off the five new shows I’m most anticipating (my list of returning shows will be posted tomorrow).
Buzz on the new crop isn’t particularly positive (in fact, this season might be generating the least excitement in recent memory), so my “anticipating” shows here does not necessarily mean I think they will be the best; rather, these five series, even if they turn out to be terrible, are the ones I’m most excited to watch, due to intriguing premises, the caliber of the cast or behind-the-scenes production team, or what have you. My list after the jump:
