ABC Family’s Hit Comedy Returns for Season 2 on May 30th at 8:00 PM.

I recently got a chance to view the upcoming season premiere of ABC Family’s hit comedy Melissa & Joey starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence.  If you haven’t watched this show, its a cute little summer comedy and works because of the chemistry between the 2 leads.  Get all of your television reviews at The Voice Of TV and check out my advanced review “I Can Manage”.

#RoofReacts to the FOX Fall Trailers

Trailers for most of the new fall series have been spread across the internet in the few weeks since the 2012 Upfronts and they always bring a mixed bag of thoughts and feelings with them.  Here is a series of posts of my reactions to the new shows on network television for Fall 2012.  These views are based on what I see in the trailers below and remember that I am picky with my thoughts.

 

Finally it is time to look at the FOX trailers.  FOX has won the season now for 8 straight years, but outside of Idol, they don’t have any major players.  Glee is horrible but still pulls an audience, and New Girl broke out thats the Max Greenfield.  Good news is that X Factor has a train wreck in waiting on their judges panel, so that could uptick the ratings for a few weeks.  My viewing choices on FOX is fairly limited, with only American Idol, X Factor, and New Girl on my schedule.

The Mob Doctor – Mondays 9:00 PM

Starring Jordana Spiro, Zach Gilford, James Carpinello, & William Forsythe

My Thoughts:  It looks like it will be entertaining and having Friday Night Lights‘ Zach Gilford means I will be giving it a chance.  I don’t know how much success it will have and could see it being a 1 season show.  It doesn’t have too much to fight against demo wise at the hour, but still going against Dancing With The Stars, The Voice, and 2 Broke Girls.  Will probably make the DVR schedule and I’ll catch 2 Broke Girls online.

#RoofReacts to the ABC Fall Trailers

Trailers for most of the new fall series have been spread across the internet in the few weeks since the 2012 Upfronts and they always bring a mixed bag of thoughts and feelings with them.  Here is a series of posts of my reactions to the new shows on network television for Fall 2012.  These views are based on what I see in the trailers below and remember that I am picky with my thoughts.

 

Now we come across ABCs set of trailers and they have a lot of them.  ABC has 5 new shows for this fall and 4 more set for midseason.  ABC has been building themselves as a soapy, female sckewed network, but some of these shows look to be changing that.  I watch a good number of ABC shows A) good comedy: Happy Endings, Don’t Trust the B- in Apt. 23, & Suburgatory, B) old school realty: The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, & Bachelor Pad, C) soapy twisty dramas: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, & Revenge.

 

The Neighbors – Wednesdays 9:30 PM

Starring Jami Gertz & Simon Templeman

My Thoughts: This show looks horrible! Is this a bad skit or something? I love Jami Gertz from her horrible character in ‘Twister’, but no! The premise sounds stupid and the execution looks bad.  Good news is it isnt fighting with much at all in its target and gets a nice Modern Family lead-in, who hopefully leave quickly so they can put Happy Endings or Apt 23 back in that time slot.

#RoofReacts to NBC Fall Trailers

Trailers for most of the new fall series have been spread across the internet in the few weeks since the 2012 Upfronts and they always bring a mixed bag of thoughts and feelings with them.  Here is a series of posts of my reactions to the new shows on network television for Fall 2012.  These views are based on what I see in the trailers below and remember that I am picky with my thoughts.

 

Here are the trailers for the NBCs new fall shows.  They are bringing in a lot and they are desperately hoping that a few of them stick. NBC is so up in the air all the time that I can’t have a strong grasp on them as an overall network.  I greatly enjoy some of their stuff, but then can’t stand other “prized” offerings.  NBC has me scheduled with A) their reality offerings: The Voice, The Biggest Loser and B) quality dramas: Parenthood, Law & Order: SVU

 

Go On – Tuesdays 9:00 PM

Starring Matthew Perry

My Thoughts: I love the “march sadness” joke in the trailer and Matthew Perry is still great.  It also has the old janitor basketball star from ‘Air Bud’, which is only good things in my book.  I am not sure how long he can stay in the recovery circle and have it feel authentic, but it doesn’t look horrible.  Unfortunately for it, its up against New Girl, Happy Endings, and NCIS:LA which only means very strong competition.  I think it gets moved quickly or cancelled.  I’ll catch it online to start with, as nothing is getting past Happy Endings and FOX takes too long to release shows online.
