Of the 27 new TV series that debuted on the major networks last fall, over half have already been canceled. For every surprise hit, like ABC’s Once Upon a Time or NBC’s Grimm, there were many more misfires, like FOX’s heavily hyped Terra Nova, NBC’s The Playboy Club, CBS’ Unforgettable, and the CW’s Ringer. Perhaps in an effort to rebuild audiences, the powers that be have already announced what new shows we’ll be seeing this fall and have released multiple previews online.
I previously predicted the failures of Lonestar, Charlie’s Angels, and several other series that you probably don’t remember, but I still get things wrong sometimes. Along with guesses on what will rise up the ratings charts and what will be canceled before 2013 arrives, here’s a look at what Monday nights are going to look like in a couple of months.
