We'll see how things go with the new shows. None of the comedies peak my interest, but then again, I don't really watch a lot of comedies anyways. There are a few shows that I'm really looking forward too, like Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (yay Gary Sinise!!), X-Files (yay Mulder & Scully!!), Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, & Scream Queens. The other shows I'll check out and make up my mind are: Quantico, Lucifer, Minority Report, Frankenstein Code, Limitless, Blindspot, Shades of Blue & Containment. I also have my tried & true faves like Hawaii Five-0, Grimm, Arrow, Criminal Minds, NCIS: LA, Teen Wolf & Strike Back to look forward to.

"Rush Hour" "Limitless" "Minority Report" AND "Uncle Buck" turned into television shows? Man it's only a matter of time before "Twilight" replaces True Blood on television. Networks should be able to pull up original ideas, rehashing movies that shouldn't be touched for Television isn't always the best thing.

The last good movie-turned TV show I can remember was "Weird Science" everything else like the "Adventures in Babysitting" series, the ORIGINAL "Uncle Buck" series and the "Ferris Bueller" series either flopped or didn't even make it out of the starting gate.

Here's a thought:
The Neilson Ratings people should be sent a complete listing of all the new shows without seeing any of them before they are on air.
Ask them to fill in an yea or nay box if they will bother to watch them once on the air before they do air.
That may give some shock value to the networks before bothering to put most of them on to begin with.
I was a Neilson at one time and after one season stopped wasting my time.
I do believe that the majority of people watching TV on a regular basis are . . . I won't finish this sentence due to not wanting to hurt people's feelings.
I have THIS TV on cable and it has better old shows than any of the new ones.
Oh, I noticed there were no new "reality???" shows listed, this is a good thing and a better thing if they got rid of them all. hat's real about them? LOL

Only one show here that may be worth watching. But only if it has the same great writing, story lines that were in the original. X Files, other than this show the rest are nothing new, nothing to that can compete with cable dramas, comedy, etc.
The networks need to find a way to think new shows outside of the box.
Police dramas, hospitals, dysfunctional family comedies and love affairs are a bore.
Even when they come up with a decent show if it doesn't get high audience ratings right away they s**t can it after 2 or 3 shows which often is stupid, another thing is when they have a possible good show they start it at a bad time or try to compete with some super special, sports specials, etc or after a couple of shows they move it around on the time line. DUMB.
I will not waste my time watching more than 3 or 4 to see if they are worth it, I doubt it, other than maybe the X Files.
Cable has the best and it's not because of the sex, violence they sometimes have more of it's because they are different and interesting.

Can anyone recommend any of them ?, they all sound utterly abysmal. Series based on movies, series based on other series. Nothing original or interesting as far as I can tell.

every year we go through this shit.

Spielberg is considering turning a UFO based book series into a TV show. The Angel Committee and Tales for Majestic is being considered for a TV show by none other than Stephen Spielberg. The director of Close Encounters and ET as well as UFO drama Taken is looking into collaberating with British writer Jason Chapman who has written a cold war UFO based novel series set in the 1950s.

The Angel Committee follows the exploits of a Cambridge Professor whi is asked to look into UFO sightings by war time leader Winston Churchill. Along with The Angel Committee Spielberg is also considering a short story series called Tales from Majestic which is a spinoff from The Angel Committee. The story follows a top secret research group called Majestic 12 and is set in the wake od the famous Roswell incident.


For deatils.

As a true and true tv show fanatatic you know every single pilot will be watched. Only way to truly tell what's what. Not gonna shit on a show based on premise only. Unfortunately very few last of course. And even worse, the good ones they cancel anyway (Forever & Cristela)...
Some new shows do appeal based on the cast. Only yardstick for me at this point really.
We'll see, but spring and summer tv seems to be better each year anyway.

A bunch of regurgitated,inane horse shit.The concepts for Lucifer and the Frankenstein Code seem like something from an Onion goof on the upcoming tv season.I think the fact that Coach is coming back says all that needs to be said about network television.

So we have adaptations of movies (minority report an limitless) and one of a comic (Lucifer) and all those characters became consultant for the police, is this a new style of cop shows? but, they are sci-fi and fantasy which are my weaknesses, so I'll check them.

I'll also try "the player", "blindspot" and supergirl.

not enough cop shows, needs more cop shows!

here some suggestions that would work on tv:

- Maleficent pricks herself with the sleeping poison and wakes up in present day new york. she joins the FBI to fight crime... as a dragon!
- Hackers-remake where the local sheriff teams up with a bunch of computer-savvy kids to catch a mischievous hacker, who is terrorizing the twitter-community.
- jesse pinkman turns over a new leaf with his new identity by joining the police force. one day he has to arrest saul goodman, what leads to a conflict between old-jesse and new-jesse. it'll be the breaking bad-spin off-spin off!

hope that helps. I accept paypal payments.

As others have said, its really sad when reboots of old movies and shows are the only things that appear to be palatable, that being said, I'll watch X-Files and Coach and thats it, and maybe start some old serieses in place of all the great shows that got cancelled the last few days, like Friday Night Lights or Sports Night.

I'll take that bet. Of the 14 listed if more than 5 make it you win. None of these have anything new.
The Muppets may be the main one to stick if on weekend mornings.

To sound predictable, only The X-Files is so far my best (and only?) choice.
Minority Report was a great movie, and I cannot see how this can be serialized for TV.
Quantico is based on some flash forward events. All TV shows with flash forward scenes get cancelled after the first season.
There is so much to choose from Neil Gaiman.... I have to give Lucifer a try, at least the pilot.

Well, the only one I will check out is Lucifer. I am hoping he is like Crowley(?) in Supernatural and has a great sense of humor. I think that is the only way that show will work. Otherwise, nothing looks good, and I, like many here, am angry about Forever! I guess we'll see when trailers begin coming, but TPTB seem clueless.

Ugh why is almost every show a police procedural of some form? I guess I understand wanting a format to fall back on while the main plot moves forwards, but does the format always have to be a cop drama? It's sooooo boring and overdone.

None of the comedies, on any of the networks, sound interesting.
Fox has some of the most interesting new shows with Scream Queens, X-Files and Frankenstein. CW's Cordon could be interesting but sounds a little like Under the Dome or an old Outer Limits episode (The Block?). Will check out Legends of Tomorrow but have low expectation.
I liked the movie Limitless but strongly suspect that it will turn out bad as a TV series on CBS.
ABC and NBC struck out with their new shows....

ok.. let's see.. Criminal Minds spin-off.. let's try that again :) Supergirl.. will give it a shot, since its in the Arrow/Flash verse. Rush Hour.. why not? loved the movies.. let's hope its good. Frankenstein Code. Intriguing. Limitless.. I enjoyed the movie, even if I felt if could have done a bit more.. But it did have potential.. Thing is.. why 1 person gets this drug and nobody else.... The X-Files.. I'm curious.. anyways.. that's it for me.. I know there is also Heroes reborn.. but that's coming this fall...

I m glad Mirelle Enos is getting her own network show. She deserves it. I know some complain she is too gloomy on The killing but the killing is a gloomy show. I liked her since Big love. She played twins on big love & they werent gloomy.

At best I can only get a vague idea what they're about. I have no idea if I'll like them until I see a trailer and maybe a few episodes. Even X-Files.

Last year, I thought Scorpion sounded awful, but it had enough of various elements that I really liked it. So did many others, got great ratings and was renewed. And then Sleepy Hollow, a great first season and a great first episode coming out of a previous season's cliffhanger, then crashed and burned within a month or so.
