Which New Genre TV Show Are You Looking Forward To Most This Fall?

Whether it’s bow-and-arrow-wielding vigilantes, aliens next door, the breakdown of all technology or possible nuclear war, the upcoming fall season of television brings with it a lot of new genre television. But which of the new shows are you most looking forward to?

Before you take our poll to announce your intention, here’s a chance to watch the trailers of this fall’s new genre programming one more time (And, yes; I’m fudging the definition of “genre” just a little by including Elementary and Last Resort, but they both feel like genre shows, if that makes sense…):

Premieres: Monday, September 17 at 10pm Eastern on NBC

Premieres: Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10pm Eastern on CBS

The Neighbors
Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8:30pm Eastern on ABC

Last Resort
Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 27 at 8pm on ABC

666 Park Avenue
Premieres: Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10pm Eastern on ABC

Premieres: Wednesday, Oct 10 at 8pm on the CW

Beauty and the Beast
Premieres: Thursday, Oct 11 at 9pm on the CW

Okay, got it? Good. Now, tell us which of the above you’re most excited about – and, as ever, feel free to use the comments to explain why.

    None of these look interesting to me, but I’ll probably give Arrow a shot (har har). But if I get bored during the pilot, I’m going to stop watching and read a comic book instead.

  • James Fisher

    Man, if last resort hadn’t been on there, it honestly would have been none.  Mid season has the following and the americans starting though which look exciting and maaaybe the mob doctor, but “genre” shows just don’t feel strong right now so it’s hard to get too worked up

  • Drhiphop85

    Can I just say old genre TV shows like Fringe, Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, and The Walking Dead? LOL…

    I’m trying to quit Supernatural but dammit I have to watch until it fricking ends…I’ve invested too much time into the Winchesters LOL

  • jrau18

    You could just wait until it’s over and then play catch up.

  • the Dagman

    Doctor Who. Series premieres on Saturday, September 1. Asylum of the Daleks. Always good stuff.

  • Rockin69

    So….Arrow is winning huh? Seems that a lot of gay guys and girls are reading this column then…

  • LightningBug

    Can’t believe Arrow is doing so well on this thing. It looks like it has the production value and acting talent of a daytime soap-opera.

  • Orphan

    Arrow because it pisses off numnods like Rockin69 and Lightning Bug but I really want that other gays and girls show Grimm season 2.

  • LightningBug

    I’m a numnods, but you’re the one calling “gays and girls” a category?
    I’m with the Dagman. Doctor Who is the show to watch this fall.

  • Richard Casey

    I’ll give them all ago. I HOPE Revolution lives up to the promise, but I don’t know whether it’ll make it past a pilot. That said, Arrow looks AWFUL: I hope I’m wrong, but it doesn’t seem to have bothered to even try and be faithful to the character. They’ve just taken the Batman Begins template and replaced the Bat get up for a bow and arrow. Beauty and the Beast looks like it’s going to be aimed squarely at the Twilight audience (i.e, a horror story without the horror and heaps of trite plotting and uninspired performances), but Elementary looks like it might be promising. I know everyone loves Sherlock, and so do I, but Elementary looks like it might be a fun procedural. 

  • Orphan

    I call it that because that’s what Rockin69 would dismiss it as.Quite frankly you’ve picked the only probable winner because the majority of the list is on network TV and most of these like Fringe and Grimm will never find an audience and be gone in a season or less.It’s a waste of time to even follow any of these.The one I hate and may find it’s way back via Netflix is the godawful Terranova.Doctor Who isn’t funny,exciting or the least bit clever and has been dragging on for decades for no good reason other than it’s fancult following,but that’s just my opinion.

  • Jugga Lord

    I _was_ looking forward to Arrow, but Cablevision here in NY yanked the CW11 over contract disputes with Tribune. Now, channel 11 is the Style Channel. I’ll have to pray that things get settled or Arrow hits Hulu in a timely manner.

  • Dave Robinson

    For those of us who don’t know what most of these shows are, you could have given a little writeup rather than just a trailer.

  • Jugga Lord

    Honestly? I’m looking more forward to returning shows. Not many, but a few. I’m excited to see Fringe’s final season as well as (don’t mock me) the new season of 2 Broke Girls. (Kat Denning & Beth Behrs…. *swoon*)

  • Charlie B

    You have to be gay if you watch Arrow? Fools will type anything on the net . smh.

  • GTC

    Easily Arrow

  • theConundrumm

    no, no… it’s easy… I originally stopped at the end of s5 (and shut my eyes/ears over the last 20seconds)… cut to two years later and I decide I might as well play catch up… s6 was ok, but about 5 episodes into s7 I just stopped… easily done…

  • Nathanial Perkins

     I have a feeling Revolution is going to make me angry.  J.J. Abrams always makes me angry.

    Last Resort looks pretty interesting, though.  And ballsy, too.

  • Ostrakos

    Animal Practice.

  • Greg

    Do you expect anything less from a show developed by the CW?

  • Chaz!

    anything with JJ Abrams’ involvement has my interest but he’s made flops before (see: Alcatraz), I’m intrigued by the possibility of  a Green Arrow tv show so I’ll give it a shot and the Neighbors trailer made laugh a little so I’ll probably watch those three pilots. I don’t have a lot of time to watch tv so if they’re not really good, I probably won’t invest my time in them. 

  • Arthur McCausland

    I think It’s funny to ask this on a comic book website – nonetheless I still voted for Arrow – the only other one I’m looking forward to is Elementary but that’s only because I know it’s going to be cheesy as hell

  • coalminds

    So “fudging” the definition of genre means including a cop procedural? LMAO

  • Lunatics On Pogosticks

    Does Oliver Queen break a dudes neck in that trailer?That dosent seem right…

  • Jugga Lord

    Well, in all fairness, they didn’t say WHICH genre. Cop shows are of a certain genre. The word isn’t exclusive to sci-fi or fantasy.

  • Demoncat4

    i will wind up proably watching four of these shows for room 666 had enough of the supernatural haunted buildings.  plus intrigued with finding out what caused the black out that is the bases for revolution. and of course can not pass up green arrow for any attempt of warners putting dc in other media is good

  • coalminds

    Right, because by genre, he meant all content that exists, since all content is part of a genre.. 

  • LightningBug

    Cult followings alone don’t sustain a concept for this long. The audience is growing in response to how funny, exciting, and clever Doctor Who is. Maybe it’s just a bit too clever for you.

  • SilverZeal

     LAST RESORT by far…it has d wickedest trailer & a very compelling plot based on d trailer.

  • Zor-El of Argo

    I am most looking forward to Arrow, but will check out most of these. 666 does not interest me, nor does Beauty and the Beast. The Niehbors just looks idiotic.

  • hysanadu

    Put me in the none of them interest me camp.  They all feel a bit contrived.

  • Michael J

    I only care about seeing Arrow.That show looks badass and I can’t wait to watch it back to back with the new season of Supernatural.

  • Rockin69

    It’s a watered-down concept of a comic book character starring a guy that could very much be an Abercrombie model, the poster is of him shirtless with a completely ripped body and, much like Smallville, I can safely say will have plenty of romantic and sexual undertones…and Oliver Queen will be shirtless pretty much the entire time. How’s that not gay?

  • Rockin69

    Oliver Queen as an Abercrombie model. Shirtless. Six-pack. How can it NOT be gay? Nothing against gays, just sayin.

  • Rockin69

    Dude, if you are a straight guy and you watch CW, you have issues. 

  • J Frost

     I had no idea that (Green) Arrow could possibly look that shitty. Seriously. I’m embarrassed for Oliver Queen that this Melrose Place looking turd is even loosely (extremely loosely) based on his life. Pass, thanks.

  • Mad Brian Marino

    for me probably Revolution because I love a good (god i hope it’s good) scifi serial and I have been loving my rewatch of Supernatural (written by Kripke) as well as Last Resort because of the excellent sounding plot and Shawn Ryan

    I want that 666 show to be good because of Mr. O’Quinn but I doubt it.

  • MegaX50

     Last resort looks like it’ll be interesting. Arrow looks even more ridiculous than Smallville did.

  • Alistair Hocker

    ‘Elementary’ looks like the pathetic rip off of the BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ that i expected it to be.

  • Lewis4510

    None of these shows really interest me.

  • Orphan

    The fact that it is nothing but a pathetic ripoff and on a network is enough said about this show for me.Besides the other show it rips off is the new show Perception in part.Tell me the producers of Elementary had no clue about Perception when they pitched Elementary.

  • thesnappysneezer

    I was interested in Arrow slightly but since it is not a comic book series, I will not be watching. Their distancing is off putting.  Maybe if I hear good of it I will take a second look

  • Xaos

     Well, I’m gay and think that the show looks like crap; if it had a hot chick starring and showing a lot of flesh, I assume that you’d dismiss the show as being lesbian?

  • Emma Perry

    It’s hard for me to get excited about any of these, mainly because these are all the shows that tend to get canceled and I refuse to get worked up over something that could get yanked right away. One of my Dish co-workers showed me the Arrow trailer, and if I had to pick one from this list it’d probably be that one. I work late, so I’ll be relying on my Hopper to record everything for me. Since I’m planning to at least check out the pilots for most of these, I’m glad I’ve got 2,000 hours of recording space to take advantage of. It’s nice to know my curiosity about these shows won’t be taking over my DVR and erasing things I already know I like.
