The Daily Beast: "Is Your New Favorite Show Here?"

Over at The Daily Beast, I've spent the week updating our gallery of new broadcast network television series, as the networks unveiled their fall schedules and announced new programming at this week's upfronts.

You can check out the gallery at The Daily Beast--which has video clips and trailers for all of the new series for the 2010-11 season--and keep track of all of the renewals and cancellation by visiting my post "Is Your New Favorite Show Here?" (and get to the gallery directly by clicking here).

In the meantime, I'm curious to know which new series are you most excited about? And which do you think are doomed to fail? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Thank you for the excellent coverage. Sadly, there's not that much that I'm excited about next season (at least in terms of new shows). Undercovers and the new Will Arnett show have potential but those are really the only two that interest me!

Jace -

I agree with Udo - great coverage and it is fantastic to have all of the upfront trailers in one location.

Have to say that I did not watch all 38 of them, but I am also most excited about Undercovers. Several of the others shows (like No Ordinary Family) may find their footing, but I was not blown away by anything other than the sheer quantity of new shows that have been greenlit.

There are actually a few I'm excited about.

S#@& My Dad Says - I love William Shatner in ham mode

Mr Sunshine - love the leads and the premise sounds good

Running Wilde - love Will Arnett

Undercovers - love JJ Abrams previous shows.

No Ordinary Family, The Event, and The Cape - I love genre tv (except when there are dinosaurs)

What I'm NOT looking forward to? All those darn cops and lawyers and medical examiners and forensics... gack - try something new. Or old - bring back Pushing Daisies and Better Off Ted, darnit!

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
