    • I found the opening extremely awkward, but I definitely liked the chemistry between Ken and John and between Casey and Sarah (which, oddly enough, each seemed better than the chemistry between Ken and Casey…). I’m not sure why Dan isn’t a regular cast member when Tim is, since they’re both parents of Casey’s character. A lot of critics have liked this show, but I don’t think this episode was that funny. But it definitely has potential to get there with the acting talent that’s on board.

flattr this!

Check out the pdf below for my fall viewing schedule for the basic networks. New Girl and The Mindy Project start tonight (Tuesday the 16th), but the official opening week of the new season starts next Monday the 22nd. The rest of the shows seen roll out between then and October 24th.

Italicized shows on the pdf grid indicate that I’m not sure if I’ll be watching them yet. Asterisked shows are not currently in their indicated time slots (2 Broke Girls returns on October 27th, the same week CBS Thursdays returns–October 30th–once football ends. State of Affairs takes over Monday nights on November 17th, at which time The Blacklist will go …to sleep until the Super Bowl.

* There weren’t many options to choose from. TCOwas the “best” of the mediocre lot for both categories.

** The only midseason show I actually watched was Intelligence, which was so awful from a writing standpoint that I refuse to give it any awards, so I had to give this one to a show I didn’t watch but which I’d TiVo’d in anticipation of watching if it was picked up by CBS. Which is was not.

*** It wasn’t as good as previous years (the writers/producers seemed to change three times during the season as to which direction it wanted to point the series), but it was good enough to be the best from what was left to choose.
