Fall TV Lineup

The major networks have announced which new shows they are going to be bringing in the fall, and after viewing some (okay, all) of the trailers, I am ready to give my verdict on which I think will become hits and misses. I will note reasons for a few.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - HIT (reason: you need a reason? Okay: Joss Whedon, Avengers, Superheroes, Action and PHIL COULSON)
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland - HIT (reason: I was surprised that Once Upon A Time got picked up, but its success warrants a similar fate for this spin-off)
Super Fun Night - FLOP
The Goldbergs - FLOP
Lucky 7 - FLOP
Back in the Game - UNSURE
Betrayal - FLOP
Trophy Wife - FLOP
Mixology - FLOP
Resurrection - UNSURE
Killer Women - FLOP
Mind Games - HIT

The Crazy Ones - FLOP
The Millers - FLOP
Mom - FLOP
We Are Men - FLOP
Friends with Better Lives - UNSURE
Hostages - FLOP
Intelligence - FLOP
Reckless - UNSURE

Almost Human - UNSURE (reason: no trailer posted)
Sleepy Hollow - HIT (reason: It will play out the same way Grimm did)
Dads - FLOP (reason: incredibly sexist, which makes sense when you learn Seth MacFarlane is behind this)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine - UNSURE (reason: funny, but the extended adolescence Samberg plays is  a little beyond ridiculous)
Rake - FLOP (reason: he's too much of a disaster, no matter how good a lawyer he is)
Junior Masterchef - UNSURE (reason: no trailer posted, but it looks successful in other parts of the world so why not)
Enlisted - FLOP (reason: an insult to the military)

The Blacklist - HIT (the best trailer I've seen thus far. James Spader is perfect for this role, giving off a hint of Hannibal Lector without being so obvious)
Ironside - UNSURE (reason: this reminds me a lot of Flashpoint, and that was a success for a while)
Welcome to the Family - FLOP
Sean Saves the World - FLOP
The Michael J. Fox Show - FLOP (reason: same reason Go On didn't go on, whatever reason that was)
Dracula - FLOP
Believe - FLOP (reason: telekinesis is not good for TV, just saying...)
Crisis - HIT (reason: creative concept, I think it will keep people interested)
About a Boy - UNSURE
The Family Guide - UNSURE
