Watched it, liked it, will stick it out for the season:
Pushing Daisies (1) - It isn't often that something lives up to the hype. The premiere of this exceeded my expectations. Gonna take a lot to get me off this bandwagon.
The Big Bang Theory (2) - Being a nerd (not so much the smart kind) I'm in love with the show. I wish there was a different female lead, though.
Reaper (2) - Like the campy feel it has. Reminds me of Buffy.
Journeyman (2) - Good 1st 2 episodes. Seems really genre-specific. Expect it to get canceled.
Gossip Girl (3) - I'm a sucker for teen dramas. Ill watch this til it gets axed.
Life (2) - Really like the lead. I just don't see how he is such a knowitall with the detective work.

Watched it, it was good enough to keep watching for awhile:
Cane (2) - Like it a lot, but don't think it can draw in the numbers. Expect it to get canceled like Kingpin did.
Big Shots (2) - I like each of the leads. I hope the tranny story goes away soon.
Bionic Woman (2) - I dont care about any of the characters. Hope it changes.
Private Practice (2) - Too much stuff. And this isn't really different. 1 more chance.
Carpoolers (1) - I wish they just kept Goss' other show alive (Sons & Daughters)
Dirty Sexy Money (2) - Still not hooked. This was getting a lot of hype preseason. I feel like it is a let down. Characters are too peculiar for a drama.

Watched it, it was ok, will watch if bored:
Chuck (2) - Gave it 2 episodes to pull me in. It didn't.
K-Ville (3) - Same ole same ole - just in Nawlins. I wanted to like it, though.
Kid Nation (3) - I'm over it.

Watched it, hated it, will not watch again:
Moonlight (1.5) - Meh.
Tell me you love me (1) - Not for me.
Back to you (1) - I didn't like the pilot at all. Only like Frasier on Cheers.
Cavemen (0.5) - I wasn't even supposed to watch this. I wish I didn't.

No interest in:
Nashville
Kitchen Nightmares
Next Great American Band
Most anything on cable

Going to try:
Everything else

(#) - is the number of episodes watched. Mainly to see how many I watch before I give shows the axe or the season pass.

Not gonna watch it, but I did enjoy the commericial for "Carpoolers" with the Phil Collins "In the Air" drum solo. That made me laugh.

Gonna sound stupid here, but how do you already watch a show that hasnt premiered yet?

I'm assuming that not a single person who has commented so far is a Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen/Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares fan. This is one of the few new reality shows that I am really looking forward to.

Wow. How does everyone find time to sample 10 or more new shows? I thought 5 was alot.
I watched Pushing Daisies and Loved it.
Sarah Connor Chronicles was ok.
Bionic Woman was a bit too dark for me and I like Dark.
Reaper was pretty good though the fat guy got on my nerves.

Looking forward to Journeyman, Dirty Sexy Money, Gossip Girl.

Update 9/20 Watched Gossip Girl and wasn't impressed. Dark and dreary and hard to identify with any of the characters wo are super upity and spoiled rich kids. This is coming from someone who likes shows with young people in them like The OC and Veronica Mars.
