Maybe I'm easily amused, but the most exciting time of the television year to me is checking out the trailers for new network shows. Some will impress, most will disappoint, and a select few will be so obviously terrible that they may as well be canceled right now. NBC has posted trailers for five of its new shows, including its big drama The Blacklist and the returns of Michael J. Fox and Sean Hayes. Stop whatever you're doing and check out the trailers below, then let everyone know what you thought of it in the polls because we're running a democracy here.


The Blacklist - Mondays at 10pm

James Spader stars as the ocuntry's most-wanted man who suddenly turns himself in and agrees to give up a ton of bad guys... but only if he's allowed to work with the FBI's new attractive profiler!


The Michael J. Fox Show - Thursdays at 9:30pm

Michael J. Fox plays a guy named Michael Henry in a show called The Michael J. Fox Show... and he has Parkinson's!


Dracula - Fridays at 10pm

Jonathan Rhys Meyers chomps on some ladies in this period piece... and he's a vampire!


Ironside - Wednesdays at 10pm

Blair Underwood is one of the city's toughest cops... and he's in a wheelchair! 



Sean Saves the World

Sean Hayes returns to NBC Thursdays as a single dad... and he is gay!



Welcome to the Family - Thursdays at 8:30pm

Two families get thrown together when their kids choose to marry after an unwanted pregnancy... and one family is white and the other is Hispanic!

    The Blacklist looks like one of the best new shows on any network. Go NBC!

  • txgirl75 May 19, 2013

    Go NBC 3 of them look pretty good.

  • DrSpongejr May 16, 2013

    The Blacklist looks great, I'll definitely be watching that one. The comedies look okay, but nothing special, but Michael J. Fox looks the best of the three.

  • bluemorphotat May 16, 2013

    The Blacklist sounds interesting... plus SPADER! Just love the man!
    Dracula, yeah, maybe, could be, who knows...
    There will only be one Ironside... and that is Mr. Burr!
    Lastly... I am not into comedies...

    Dracula looks ok, I like period pieces but I don't think I'll be watching this one. I absolutely love James Spader so I will definitely be watching the Blacklist.

    How awesome would it be if The Blacklist and Hannibal aired on the same night

  • JackSaat May 15, 2013

    Wow so far I like James Spader's show and Michael J. Fox Show! Dracula is a maybe. Ironside is yet a other cop show now with a wheelchair pass! Sean Saves the World, hell no! Welcome to the Family no way in hell!

    The Blacklist and Michael J. Fox Show both look like keepers, but the rest...
    Dracula, as almost everyone else has said, could go either way, but I doubt that it's for me, whereas Ironside just looks dreadful and what was with the music they played over that trailer? What a strangely eclectic mix that just didn't seem to fit with the images.
    And then there's the remaining sitcoms. Why do NBC suck so badly at choosing a sitcom. The only plus to Welcome to the Family and Sean Saves the World (stupid title) is that it looks more likely that Community will reach one of it's targets #sixseasonsandamovie
    Finally, why, oh why is Mary McCormack wasting her time on Welcome to the Family? If I do decide to check it out (4 episode test perhaps?) then she will be the ONLY reason why I do.

    The Blacklist looks like an edgier White Collar. Might be good regardless. Michael J Fox should stick around as well as the Sean Hayes show. Dracula looks decent...we'll see where it goes and whether it contains elements from the book.

    Ironside looks ridiculous - wasn't there a show about a blind cop that was ridiculed a while ago? Finally since I've met Mike O'Malley I wish him success with his show. Looks decent so it might improve from there.

    I'm already missing NBC's smart workplace comedies - hopefully Parks & Rec will stick around a few more years.

    Blacklist just sounds like a near copy of White Collar.. not interested in another one. I only watched Dracula, the rest weren't worth it.
