OT: Fall TV Season

The TV networks have started to roll out their new shows, and like seemingly every year, the outlook is pretty bleak.  The only show I was somewhat looking forward to watching was "Up All Night," given its cast and decent premise.  Upon first viewing, the show was a solid "meets expectations," but not something I would necessarily watch every week.  The workplace side of the story was neither funny nor fresh, as it played like a scrapped SNL skit from five years ago centered on Maya Rudolph's Oprah impression.  Reportedly, the show was re-tooled to emphasize this character due to the success of "Bridesmaids," but (1) in two months, will anyone remember that movie? and (2) was Maya Rudolph really the reason people liked that movie? 

I also watched the first five minutes of "Free Agents," which I would bet is the only five minutes I ever watch of that show.  Other than that, I think I am going to stick to the baseball playoffs and the handful of returning shows that I already watch and let natural selection (insert "Terra Nova" joke here) take its course on the other new shows before investing any time in them. 

Are there are any new shows that you are looking forward to?  Are there any Felipe Paulino-like sleepers out there that will defy the odds and become good shows?  What is your pick for the worst new show?  What would be your best idea for a Royals-based TV show (besides the Brandon Duckworth sitcom)?
