Well, if only some of the comedy shows turn out as good as they seem to, my fall will be swamped. But what is up with all the time-travelling and mother role-ing?

Time travel certainly seems to be trendy. I'm cautiously optimistic about "Making History."

I'm floored by how many new shows are set to premiere on a few of these networks (one had 12!!). Is it just me, or is this unusual to have trailers in mid-May ahead of the fall season? Not to mention that some of these are most likely scheduled to be mid-season replacements.

That concerns me for their lack of quality vs. quantity. I'll admit some of the dramas/dramedies look good, but there are far too many "reboots" or movies-turned-TV shows in the lineups. And I thought Hollywood was running out of movie scripts! TV has hit the skids, too.

There seem to be a lot of remakes and movies turned into TV series...not much here to get excited about.
