  • Critics’ Picks 2014: The Worst New Shows (VIDEO) – Yahoo TV (@yahootv) interviewed various TV critics, including their own Maggie Furlong (@maggiefurlong), at the recent Television Critics Association Press Tour about the worst new shows coming this TV season. Some pretty bad shows make this list, but not sure I’m ready to put Selfie on mine. And, need to see a few more Stalker episodes to see if it really is going to be what @moryan and @tvoti think it is.
  • Fall 2014 TV Guide: Avoid These Shows! – Laurel Brown (@DocBrown_TV) of DocBrownTV.com gives her picks for the four new shows to avoid this fall. Can’t really argue too much with any of them, but I will probably give Mulaney and Scorpion a couple more episodes. Follow the link at the bottom of the page for her picks of shows with weak pilots that may end up okay.
  • Fall TV 2014: 5 New Shows to Avoid – Chuck Barney (@chuckbarney) of MercuryNews.com (@Mercnews) gives his picks for the five shows to stay away from this fall. I really liked Cristela, but him not so much.
  • Slim Pickings at the Network TV Bazaar – Slate.com (@slate) TV critic Willa Paskin (@willapaskin) writes about three talented actresses in three terrible shows. While I liked Madam Secretary a bit more than she does, I totally agree on the other two.
  • These 5 Fall Broadcast TV Frosh Fail to Impress – Frazier Moore (@tvfrazier) for AP.org (@AP) gives his picks for new falls shows destine to fail. I hope he is wrong on the second and fourth shows listed, as I liked them quite a bit.
