I'm not sure that this list is complete, links should have official information and previews. If you're unable to see the previews, they should all be available on youtube as well. Sorry I'm not including information in the thread, that would take up a lot of space in here. (Text) = Genre, Notable Actors, Producers or other notable information. I'll add new cable TV shows later.

As I always get a kick out of ABC's Spring/Winter Wipeout, I will be looking forward to 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show.

Also, even though not mentioned, I have to see what Two and a Half Men will be like with Kutcher

Terra Nova looked the most promising to me out of the lot, so I might tune into it for an episode or two. But the plot line seemed a bit twisted to me. The world they described in the teaser almost seemed like it was made by all of the most pessimistic climate change scientist's worst nightmares. I know the future isn't bright, but come on.

Despite my interest in the show, after what happened to Jericho I won't be investing too much time into it since it seems like any show that has actual intellectual potential and isn't a comedy has a shelf life shorter than a box of Cheez-its in my home (they usually don't make it out of the grocery bag intact to give a clue).

Given this trend I likely won't even get cable after I move and just keep my TV for gaming and as an external monitor for my laptops (useful for mapping which I do a lot of). I've watched TV since I was young and 2012 may see months where I don't tune in to anything but news and weather.

Now if they bring back Walker Texas and my local cable company may have to chat.

I have not watched normal programming in years, to the point I don't know one from the other. I tried watching a week ago and turned off the tv in disgust, one stupid reality show after another and what was left was worse. No, I suppose I will see none of these and I don't think I will miss anything either. I only post my view in hopes others will just turn off the tv. In fact, I just realized, my main big tv has no antenna for gods sake, I wonder when it was turned on last. LOL

I'm not starting watching anything new, because every time I like a show, it gets canceled.

I'm planing on The Secret Circle just because I think it looks cool.
Once Upon a Time kinda looks alright i might watch it for a few shows.
I might watch New Girl just because I like Zooey Deschanel.

Sorry Gaz! I missed it. Do you want to merge the replies here to your thread?

Nah, it's really no big deal...(and that's a lot harder than it sounds).

Now, one of us just needs to add the cable networks' new shows...

I'll definitely be checking out Terra Nova, Awake, Alcatraz, and Grimm for sure. As for cable TV, I don't think that all the networks have released their schedules yet. Syfy has been heavily promoting this summer's "Alphas" which sounds like a long overdue replacement for "Heroes", but hopefully it won't fall apart also. Adult Swim are the ones to finally recognize the genius of Brad Neely (best known for the Washington, Washington music) and give him his own show (China, IL) so I am excited about that too.

Terra Nova, Fallen Skies, Alcatraz, and Person of Interest are the ones that ehemmm interest me. Alcatraz sounds' like pure greatness, fighting the ghosts of Alcatraz in human form. I smell greatness but then again I am a JJ whore so what can I say. Only two weeks away from Fallen Skies so stoked. Game of thrones freaking rocks! It's boobies, sword fighting and lot's of blood what's not to love???

More than just boobies!

In fact, even more than True Blood....pretty raunchy show, hehe... I mean full frontal female and male nudity, that was surprising. More hardcore than a Skinimax movie...
