21 Hours of TV 2012 Fall TV Preview (Tuesday)

Tuesday may be the most confusing night of TV for me. Most of the new shows I've decided to watch might end up being duds (Go On, The Mindy Project, Vegas), and many of those I'm not watching (Ben and Kate, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Parenthood) could be very, very good.

What's not confusing?  That "New Girl" was easily my favorite new show of last year, and one of the only shows to deliver both "laughing so hard I had to pause the show so I don't miss anything" moments as well as "that was so good I'm going to immediately watch that scene three more times" moments.  I was so impressed by how quickly that cast came together and how the show got better throughout the year.

Oh and one other thing; Is there any chance we could combine the Dancing with the Stars results show with the NCISes and have the very first Reality Crime Procedural? No? Really? Sigh... Reminds me of the look on my wife's face when I suggested we do a murder mystery wedding. And that's fine, but when somebodies making millions off of CSI: Survivor don't come crying to me, I laid it right out there for you.
