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 .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
