This fall NBC is rolling out six new shows, including four comedies.
From a massive film-like series about a world without power to a wacky
sitcom about three dads, there's a little something for everyone. See NBC's Full Fall 2012 Schedule>>
Below, you can check out the trailers for NBC's new fall 2012 shows.Revolution (Mondays at 10pm)
From J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, this series looks to be quite impressive, visually, like a big screen movie. It looks unlike anything else on a major network, though it reminds me a bit of a better version of The Event
. This is easily the one I'm most looking forward to.
Chicago Fire (Wednesdays at 10pm)
If you watched Rescue Me
or Third Watch
, there's probably not much new here for you in this seemingly basic firefighter series. The only saving grace might be the insanely good-looking cast led by House
's Jesse Spencer and The Vampire Diaries
' Taylor Kinney.
Go On (Tuesdays at 9pm)
I find Matthew Perry to be quite compelling (I was a big fan of Mr. Sunshine
) and this show looks like a nice blend of comedy and tragedy. Plus, the March Sadness tournament is the funniest thing I saw in any of the four comedy trailers.
The New Normal (Tuesdays at 9:30pm)
creator Ryan Murphy, this show looks exactly like Glee
in terms of tone. There's some wacky, absurd comedy, but also a ton of serious, preachy melodrama about how gay couples are just like everyone else. Unfortunately, it seems to be shoving that message down our throats when Mitchell and Cameron do the same thing on Modern Family
without patting itself on the back so hard. Also, I'm not a big fan of Nene Leakes and she does not seem to fit at all in this show.
Animal Practice (Wednesdays at 8pm)
I hate to say it, but I think I've found the first cancellation of the fall season. I love Justin Kirk on Weeds
, but this surly veterinarian comedy feels less like House
with Animals and more like Nurse Jackie
with a Monkey. It also seems painfully unfunny.
Guys with Kids (Wednesdays at 8:30pm)
I wanted to hate this show because I generall6y hate multi-camera sitcoms. But I have to admit that a few things in this trailer made me laugh, and Anthony Anderson is a pretty solid entertainer. This show could be tolerable, but I imagine it's time slot will hurt it since it doesn't mesh well with anything else on the network.
So which of NBC's new fall shows will you be watching next season?(Image and videos courtesy of NBC)
