    Since there are already three threads regarding new shows and their likely success or failure, maybe we should have a little Survivor style pool.. throw out your shows that will succeed/fail.

    I'm going to say this is a failure.

    The Munsters reboot: "Mockingbird Lane" maybe not the first but a definite cancel after a few episodes

    Probably should have started a more generic thread, but add my vote for "Vegas" to last a very short time.

    My guess for the first cancellation from the list of new shows: BEN & KATE on Fox.

    I have no interest in any new show except perhaps the Sherlock Holmes one.

    "Elementary" is the show, and I agree with you Robert, it does look pretty good and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully not one of those shows with great previews that ends up being awful. I've missed both Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller, should be fun to watch. Loved Eli Stone, cancelled much to soon.
    Just a bit of trivia, but did a quickie check to make sure I spelled his name right and noticed he was in a 1982 episode of Dr. Who.

    I believe "Mob Doctor" is DOA.
    I think "Revolution" may be OK.
    Otherwise, nothing new for me, really. I am sticking with my returning shows.

    That "Animal Practice" show (NBC) looks DOA as well.

    I'm with you on this one, looks dreadful and will probably fade away very fast.

    I just don't see how it can last as a concept more then about 4 episodes. It's like at some point, their would be resolution one way or another.

    I'm going with Mob Doctor. Looks dreadful

    My predictions for those among the first to go are (in no particular order):
    The New Normal
    Revolution
    Animal Practice
    The Last Resort

    Episode 5, it's revealed this is the sub from Lost.
    Then it gets weird...

    I think the New Normal can make it to at least a 2nd season. With Modern Family(and a few others, but MF being the big one) kicking the door in for "the reality of how some families are created"...it has a chance.
    Last Resort...with several of the cast members being movie stars, I see this as not a "long term show" in the first place. More of the "we could make an entire series out of a mini-series, cause what else we got?" happening.
    Revolution? ehh. Falling Skies, amongst others, is better. Besides, the "Cablers" with nothing to lose, do it better.
    Animal Practice...hhmmm. An even more light-hearted show than Scrubs. Maybe the "dog act" from AGT will make an appearance...

    After viewing the first episode of "Revolution", I am not holding out much hope for it. I strangely want "Animal Practice" to succeed, because I like the guy from "Weeds", and Bobby Lee. The "Last Resort" does not have legs.

    DVRd it but haven't viewed yet. Kind of a strange premise, but thought with JJ Abrams involved it might be okay so added to my schedule. I'll give it a few weeks but I'm famous among friends for picking the new duds for the fall season. If I like it, I've got about an 80% failure rate. If I skip it, I have to play catch-up with repeats when it turns out to be a success.

    Saw the info from Josh on the numbers for the first episode, looked pretty impressive.
    Guess we wait and see if they hold up. Will view the episode tomorrow, didn't read any spoiler type info, so looking forward to it.
