Just as the thread title asks, which new dramas on cable or network are you looking forward to this upcoming season? I'm including both Fall and Spring.

This Poll will allow you to choose more than 1 show.

Re: Which new dramas are you looking forward to this upcoming season?

Terra Nova won last year's poll

My most anticipated:

Arrow - Six seasons and a movie!
Mob Doctor - Really good preview. Plus, William Forsythe
Vegas - Michael Chiklis and Dennis Quaid in 60s Vegas sounds like gold...on cable. I'm skeptical if this will work on network, but hoping for the best.
Nashville - Connie Britton vs. Hayden Panettiere with a country music backdrop? I'm there.

I haven't heard of most of those. Revolution, Last Resort, and Elementary are the ones I voted for.

Re: Which new dramas are you looking forward to this upcoming season?

I could only vote for one, so I chose Last Resort. It has a really cool premise IMO and having Andre Braugher as the lead is a plus. And of course Shawn Ryan being the co-creator helps too.

I'm also highly anticipating Arrow, Vegas, The Following, and Revolution despite NBC's poor track record with serialized science fiction/action dramas.

I don't know enough about most of those shows to make a guess.

I know the wife is really interested in Elementary, I'm interested in Last Resort, Revolution, Following and I am intrigued by Davinci's Demons. . I want to like Arrow, but the last super hero show I got into was horrible (The Cape).

Re: Which new dramas are you looking forward to this upcoming season?

I'll give Revolution a go. Also, going to tune into The Mob Doctor, see that Zeljko Ivanek is being seriously underused and drop it. Last Resort gets at least a few episodes because Andre Braugher is good. 666 Park Avenue looks cheesy but I'll give it a chance because Terry O'Quinn deserves it. Elementary looks cute with its own cheesy quips from the commercials - I'll give it a try. The Following looks good from the previews and isn't it a short season? That's good - hopefully the quality is up there because of the short episode count.

None of these, though, inspire confidence in me staying with them long term - except maybe The Following.

Last Resort is the only new show I'm watching this fall. Andre Braugher could read the phone book and I'd watch it.

I voted for Vegas. I also put in American Horror Story, but I don't consider that "new".

I put AHS because it's essentially a new show this season with the new setting, story arc and time period. Not related at all to the 1st season with the exception of a few returning actors.

Nothing really makes me go wow. I'll probably check out the Showtime stuff.

At first I voted Arrow, American Horror Story and The Following,

now I'd add Revolution to my list as well after reading up on it, watching a trailer.

Man, I didn't get enough current shows canceled (Ringer may have been the only one) to make room for all these new shows.

I am interested in Revolution and Arrow. Maybe Zero Hour because of Edwards.

Revolution is the only new show I'm eagerly anticipating. However, it could easily turn into a Terra Nova type disaster by the third or fourth episode. I'm guessing that, at least, the premiere will be spectacular!

Revolution sounds like a rip off of the Emberverse. Will it be only power gone and stuff like gunpowder still work?

I have a feeling it'll suck ass but I'm semi-interested in the Hannibal series. Other than that nothing.

Da Vinci's Demons sounds interesting...but being on Starz, it will probably get axed after the first season.
