TV.com's 2014 Post-Upfronts Questionnaire: Which New Shows Look the Best and the Worst?
Now that the Upfronts are over and we've all had a taste of the networks' new schedules and shows, it's time to jump to conclusions and pick our favorite new serie of the 2014-2015 season based solely on trailers.
I've surveyed the TV.com staff for their thoughts on the new shows, and tallied their votes for best-looking and worst-looking candidates via secret ballot in order to take the temperature taking of what might resonate with today's viewers, as executives like to say.
Check out our results below, and play along at home in the polls and the comments!
