TV Show Pilots: NBC Fall 2014 Review Round Up

All fall new shows have premiered, and I have seen the pilot of ALL of them on every broadcast network. Granted, I haven’t had the time to make a review of each of them since it’s really a ton of them so I wanted to summarize my opinion in one paragraph and score of each of them. As well as predict if it will survive or not for a second year.

Favorite NBC Pilot: The mysteries of Laura
Runner Up: State of Affairs & Constantine

A To Z 7/10

It’s a cute little show on how a couple finally meets and get together and start building their relationship. Unfortunately, once you see the pilot, you pretty much feel you have seen the best part of the show, which is how they meet. Showing how their relationship moves along just doesn’t seem as interesting as the concept of the pilot itself.

Status: Cancelled

Full Review: A to Z (Pilot) Review

Bad Judge 4/10

What I consider the worst pilot I have seen this year, which is a shame because it had so much potential to become something special. Kate Walsh is a good actress, she is just super badly used in here. The comedy relies too much on trashy jokes that simply don’t feel any bit of genuine, instead it gives you the creeps.

Status: Cancelled 

Full Review: Bad Judge (Pilot) Review

Mysteries of Laura 7.5/10

Laura starts off as a funny promising show, which sometimes loses its balance with the introduction of the kids of Laura. The kids behave extremely crazy, and it just doesn’t prove funny, instead it makes Laura look like a terrible mom. However, when the show is focusing on the police cases themselves, it can actually be quite interesting as they manage to combine nicely the serious drama with the craziness of Laura as a character.

Status: Undecided, could be renewed or could be cancelled

Full Review: The Mysteries of Laura (Pilot) Review

Constantine 7/10

The pilot is a bit lost, but it definitely has great production values and the lead in protagonist proves to be quite an interesting one. Unfortunately on this pilot, the important character on the episode feels a bit out of place and not well connected, which is why they removed her on future episodes for an entirely different female character. Still, the show leaves you wanting to see more.

Status: Possible Cancellation

Marry Me 7/10

Suffers from the same problems as A To Z. It establishes a fun little story on how the couple keep trying to propose to one another until they finally do. But after that is done, you really don’t feel compelled to see more of what’s to come. You feel that the fun and interesting part is already done, like if you watched a short movie.

Status: Possible Cancellation

State of Affairs 7/10

The pilot has a very strange format going for it. It tries to put together a lot of stuff in order to appeal to all your senses. The idea of the main lead getting drunk and having casual sex seems out of place for a person who is still thinking about her fiancee that died, are you really doing any favors to him that way? It also makes it very awkward when she is speaking to her would be mother in law (madam president). Katherine is still pretty impressive on this serious role, she really gets very involved with the character. Yet I am still not feeling good chemistry between her and the other characters.

Status: Undecided for now, still too new

NBC Renewal Predictions: State of Affairs moves to the Fighting List

State_of_Affairs_NBC
Here are my predictions, those shows in danger or fighting I will explain why they are there. I will do these predictions every week, every broadcast network channel, everything can change.

Dead-RIP List:

Bad Judge
A To Z

Safe List:

The Blacklist
Chicago Fire
Law & Order SVU
Chicago P.D.
Grimm

Fighting List:

State of Affairs – It started great, but it dropped a lot on its second episode, and it hasn’t gone up on its 3rd one.

The Mysteries of Laura – Still steady, depends on NBC’s plans.

Doom List:

Constantine – Still has very low ratings, and NBC confirmed it won’t order more than 13 episodes. We have to wait and see if it could still get another short season but fans must make sure it rises in ratings.

Marry Me – Voice lead in doesn’t help the show at all, people lost interest, very unlikely to see it return.

About A Boy – Low ratings, unless it moves to summer again, it probably gets cancelled.

Final Season:

Parenthood
Parks & Recreation

NBC Renewal Predictions: About A Boy on the Doom List, State of Affairs debuts Safe

Here are my predictions, those shows in danger or fighting I will explain why they are there. I will do these predictions every week, every broadcast network channel, everything can change.

Dead-RIP List:

Bad Judge
A To Z

Safe List:

The Blacklist
Chicago Fire
Law & Order SVU
Chicago P.D.
Grimm
State of Affairs

Fighting List:

Marry Me – Probably moves very soon to the doom list. It is doing really low compared to The Voice lead in it has.

The Mysteries of Laura – Considering is a pretty steady show in its ratings, this one could stay and surive the comedy killing spree of NBC.

Doom List:

Constantine – Still has very low ratings, and it’s not as cheap as Hannibal or even Dracula was.

About A Boy – Its ratings are still low, and since it will take forever to move it to syndication, NBC might end up canceling all its new comedies like last year. Unless this one manages to get a schedule change.

Final Season:

Parenthood
Parks & Recreation

NBC Renewal Predictions: Constantine on the Doom List

Constantine_Show-e1399833122634
Here are my predictions, those shows in danger or fighting I will explain why they are there. I will do these predictions every week, every broadcast network channel, everything can change.

Dead-RIP List:

Bad Judge
A To Z

Safe List:

The Blacklist
Chicago Fire
Law & Order SVU
Chicago P.D.
Grimm

Fighting List:

About A Boy – Goes lower every week, it could move to the doom list very soon.

Marry Me – Continues to drop a lot despite a the voice lead in, could also move to the doom list.

The Mysteries of Laura – With the recent cancellation of comedy shows, this one could be a keeper if it doesn’t go way down.

Doom List:

Constantine – The ratings dropped very significantly last friday, plus a weak debut might go be history for this show. The cost of the show might also be expensive and with so much expectation and word of mouth, the ratings are a pretty big disappointment.

Final Season:

Parenthood
Parks & Recreation
