    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.

    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.

    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.

    Revenge
    Homeland
    Pan Am (except I'm losing interest)

    My other favs aren't new
    Dexter
    Sons of Anarchy
    Modern Family
    The Middle (has been really good this season)
    Hawaii Five-O (they're still hot)

    I've watched one Grim and will probably watch again if I remember. I watched half of Once Upon a Time and was bored.

    Pan-Am (by far!)
    Continuing for me as well, Hawaii Five-0.
    Most of my other TV faves are on cable, rather than network TV.

    I was thinking this was a weak year for new shows, but I did manage to find 5 shows that I watch, and other than Survivor and TAR, the only other show besides these 5 that I make sure to watch each week is The Good Wife, so perhaps it's just that there's not much good on tv at all :lol:

    I would watch Homeland and American Horror Story if I had cable, though.

    Only two new ones I tried are Ringer and Person of Interest and I'm still enjoying both of them.

    I love how Michael Emerson just totally pulled me into his Person of Interest character...I don't even think of him as Benjamin from Lost anymore. Emerson and Caviezel have some great chemistry going on when playing their roles. Great Show! Kind of like an updated version of the old 80s show Equalizer (if anyone remembers that one).

    Ringer is just fun...far fetched but who cares...it is entertaining and that is the only reason I watch TV.

    I also think Mike Colter (Malcolm on Ringer) and Jim Caviezel are two of the hottest guys on TV right now.

    Grimm
    Once Upon a Time

    I saw a few eps of New Girl and while it's funny, it's not Must See TV for me

    I'm finishing the 1st (6 ep) season of The Walking Dead and will watch the 2nd season too
    I want to watch Person of Interest, since I heard a lot of good things about it.

    I don't really have that much time to watch tv as they air, but I'll make time on the weekends and slow nights to catch up on my shows :)

    I had recorded and had a marathon of 'Person of Interst' this weekend and am hooked. I agree with others, Michael Emerson has made me forget Ben. He is just a great actor, and I love the relationship between him and Jim C. I find with a new show, watching a few episodes in one sitting really helps me get hooked, vs 1 everyweek or 2.
    I also have been enjoying Prime Suspect. Typical in many ways, but I like Maria Bello, and there are lots of good actors on this show.
    Without realizing it, other than Prime Suspect and Greys, I pretty much am only watching CBS right now (Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Hawaii 50, and Survivor)
    One other show that I am loving that I found this summer - Law & Order UK - very good, always a fan of the original, but love the London setting, and they are using the same scripts.
