    These aren't in order. I don't think I can do that without over thinking it:

    1. Revenge
    2. Once Upon a Time
    3. Walking Dead (technically not new but I watched season 1 the weekend before this season began, so new to me)
    4. Pan Am
    5. Playboy Club (cancelled)

    1. "The Walking Dead" - I consider it new since season 1 was only 6 eps.
    2. "American Horror Story"
    3. "The Secret Circle"
    4. "Grimm"
    5. "Terra Nova"

    6. "Teen Wolf" and "Alphas" - honorable mentions from late summer.

    I'm surprised I have 5 to list. Normally there are only 1 or 2 new shows that I'm interested enough to watch from the beginning.

    Revenge
    Ringer
    American Horror Story
    The Secret Circle
    Once Upon a Time

    Yeah, that's only 3, but the other shows I've started watching aren't new.

    Revenge is the only one I watch religiously.

    I kind of like New Girl as well.

    There's only 3 new shows that I've made a season pass on my DVR:

    Revenge
    A Person of Interest
    Homeland (Showtime)

    I still tune into Terra Nova, Once Upon a Time and Unforgettable, but they haven't succeeded in reaching "must see TV" for me.

    The only new one that I've watched this season is Grimm. I watch too many shows already to add much more to my schedule :lol: I have shows on every night of the week except Saturday!

    I keep meaning to watch 2 Broke Girls. I've heard it's quite hilarious. That'll probably be next summer's catch-up show of mine, since I pick one every year to watch during TV-down-time.

    Homeland
    X Factor

    That is all I have added on a regular basis. I have taped Once Upon A Time, but haven't watched it yet. I have seen a few eps of Revenge, Prime Suspect, and American Horror Story, but I didn't get addicted.

    I've gotten hooked by Grimm, and I like X Factor as well (but I can't seem to watch it every week).

    I need to watch a few episodes, so I can play "where are they filming?". They're shooting some scenes just a few streets away from here.

    New Girl is the only one I've been actively been trying to catch.

    Others I liked and hope to catch up with:
    Ringer
    Once Upon a Time

    Haven't tried Grimm yet.

    Saw the first episode of American Horror and it terrified the pants off of me, so while it was excellent, I just can't bear to watch more.

    I also have to confess to watching Whitney, but mainly because it's on right after Big Bang Theory and I need to kill time before Bones.

    Once Upon a Time
    Pan Am
    Happy Endings (hasn't been on a year yet so I still consider it new)
    Terra Nova (I'm behind in this one right now though)

    I also liked Charlie's Angels but mainly because it was beyond cheesetastic pretty much all the time. :lol:

    My faves so far:

    HART OF DIXIE :)
    Once Upon a Time
    Revenge
    Terra Nova
    Prime Suspect (not must see, but I'll watch it when I can)

    I've only seen one episode of Grimm so far and I was kind of meh about it so I'm reserving judgement until I've seen a few more epis.

    OMG! I forgot American Horror Story which is my VERY FAVORITE of all shows this season. How did I manage that? Eek! I will remove Playboy Club since it was cancelled anyway:

    1. Revenge
    2. Once Upon a Time
    3. Walking Dead
    4. Pan Am
    5. American Horror Story

    I must say, this has been a really strong year for new shows.

    1. Revenge
    2. Once Upon A Time
    3. Person Of Interest
    4. Pan Am
    5. Terra Nova

    Amusing that they're all hour-long dramas. Other than How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory, ARE there any good comedies? I tried watching Community and couldn't get into it, and I've never seen 30 Rock so why start now? :lol: Two Broke Girls looks really stupid. Also tried Last Man Standing because I do like Tim Allen, but I can't stand Nancy Travis, so that's out.

    I must give a shout-out to Parks & Recreation -- one of the best and funniest shows on TV today! :respec:

    Only 2 new shows on my favorites list:
    1. Person of Interest (captivating)
    2. Revenge (so much fun)

    Suburgatory is a pretty good new comedy. Hope to watch Homeland someday (don't have Showtime right now).

    I've watched multiple episodes each of Terra Nova, Once Upon A Time, Pan Am, Hart of Dixie, and Ringer but they haven't made my must see list.

    Modern Family and Raising Hope. Modern Family was completely brilliant and :rofl: in almost every episode in its first 2 seasons; this seaons it's still good, but no longer has that freshness to it. Ditto for Raising Hope -- brilliant in its first season, not-quite-so-brilliant-but-still-funny this season.

    Community was really good in season 1, had a handfull of brilliant episodes to punctuate a season of bleh in season 2, and I've stopped watching it this season (3).

    30 Rock is worth getting on DVD so you can watch all the Tina Fey & Alec Baldwin scenes ( :rofl: ), and FF through all the Tracy Morgan scenes ( :scream: ).

    The only one I've kept watching is Grimm - and it's only 2 episodes in! If I had Showtime, I'd be watching Homeland I'm sure. I adore Damien Lewis.
