Big Bang Theory is hilarious. It's been a long time since a comedy made me laugh this much. The critics aren't liking it much, and I haven't seen the ratings for it, but it is laugh-out-loud funny--and Isaac Asimov's daughter gave it the thumbs-up last week.

I will try watching it again, but I could barely make it through the pilot and found most of the jokes to be cringeworthy.

Life is my favorite new show as of right now and I don't think I have seen anyone mention it. Its a cop drama, but parts of it are really funny and interesting. Good characters and acting, with some well done action scenes thrown in each episode. Of course I also have a slight man-crush on Damian Lewis since Band of Brothers so I might be a little bias.

yes, Life is a good show. Just the right amount of subtle humor. I really hope we get to see where the big "plan" on his bedroom wall is going and how it will play out.

New shows nowadays do not film an entire season. They usaually do about 6-8 episodes to see how the ratings go. If it goes well, they will order more episodes. If it goes really well, it gets picked up for the whole season. So there usaully are not many episodes that go un-aired.

I also really enjoy watching Chuck for some reason. It's a corny spy show with a dorky guy. but the girls are hot.

Well this is not new TV, but I didn't want to start a new thread for this.... Tonight at 10 is the best episode of the Simpsons in my opinion, it's the company softball league, and Burns brings in the ringers, classic. Also on Discovery Channel at 7 is the "Build it Bigger" on the National's new stadium. Oh and almost forgot, new episode of South Park tonight.

I'm just so happy cable exists because i almost never watch network TV shows.Some of the shows listed in this thread i had never even heard of.I mainly watch stuff like Dirty Jobs/Survivorman and other stuff on the Discovery Channel,HBO series,and lots of sports.I do admit that i watch one very cheesy show that my daughter watches and now i do with her,Beauty and the Geek.I thought i looked horrible when she started watching it a few years ago,but at some point i found myself following the show as she watched.

I'm a Discovery Channel junkie; if Dirty Jobs, Survivorman, Man vs. Wild, or Mythbusters is on, I'm watching.

Michelle Ryan is keeping me from enjoying game 1 of the World Series tonight.

You might know her as NBC's new "Bionic Woman." Just before the new season, I watched Jekyll from the BBC.
While I miss the red dye-job (and the accent), she's still easy on the eyes.

Not a new TV show (search didn't come up with a thread for current ones), but I hope Last Man On Earth doesn't get canceled. It's ratings haven't been strong, so there's rumors that it'll be gone after this season. I hated the first season, but the characters, especially Tandy, have really been rounding out. The show has been a great mix of comedy but also dramatic and sad moments.

Huge fan of the show. The comedy is light if barely even existent but the storyline is what keeps me watching. I want to know what's going to happen next.

I think that's a pretty fair assessment. I've always been intrigued by the storyline, but the humor is really slow to develop. It's on the back end of my DVR queue. The creators of LMOE now have a second show on Fox - Making History. I'm 2 episodes in, but I think it has potential.

Hoping that the Prison Break reboot isn't an abortion and ruins one of my favorite all-time shows.

If you missed out on watching The Good Place, do yourself a favor and watch it from the start [smile]

Agreed. I read some where that they are only planning on doing 1 season.

Another good one. I started watching it because Kristen Bell......has a nice personality, but the story moves along quickly, didn't really have any dull spots, and it was entertaining throughout. It's interesting for this upcoming season they seemed to pretty much wipe the slate clean, like the show is almost completely starting over.

And was anybody else amazed to realize that Bob's Burgers was in its 7th season?

I've only watched a couple of episodes but NBC's "Trial and Error" with John Lithgow is pretty funny. It's done in the same mockumentary style as "The Office" and (more so) "Parks and Recreation," which I both loved.

"The Last Man on Earth" has only been mildly funny. It's actually disappointing to me how funny I thought it was going to be compared to how funny it actually was. Still, as others have said, the story is pretty interesting, and the antics that Tandy and others do are kind of crazy to wonder if that would happen in real life if such a catastrophe were to actually happen.

I made a thread on The Expanse which is a really good show on Syfy. I really love the show and leaning towards this is the best show on TV so far. I haven't even watched anything else but The Expanse on tv other than some sporting events.

I intended to start watching Trial and Error but I barely have enough time for the shows I do watch and the rest of life right now.

My wife and I watched every episode of This is Us season 1. It wrapped up a couple weeks ago. I think it is extremely well done although the latter part of the season was pretty depressing. One heartache after another.
