Video Preview: Fox's New Shows

  • 17comments

Fox may not have the abundance of new shows that NBC has, but it still has a few candidates for hits... if you can make a judgment from a trailer. Will Arnett is typical hilarious Will Arnett in the comedy Running Wilde, which is a good thing. New drama Lonestar has a just-okay premise, but looks like it might be well-executed. But why listen to what I have to say when you can watch them yourselves? Take a look and let us know what you're excited for in the comments section, below.
