    I just watched the pilot for “Trophy Wife” online, and after being so thoroughly impressed with Malin Ackerman’s performance, started thinking that it would be fun to spot possible 2014 Emmy contenders among the NEW shows.

    Ackerman took what could have been a stereotype and created a fully realized, likable, relatable character.  To top it off, I didn’t even mind Bradley Whitford in the show, which is impressive considering I can’t watch the “West Wing” because he turns me off so much as an actor.

    I thought the show had a lot of potential as well…look forward to seeing this one develop.  And seeing if Ackerman breaks out in the Best Actress Comedy field.

    I do think that in the comedy field, “Mom” on CBS might, just MIGHT be a contender, espeically if Anna Faris and Allison Janney do anything resembling good work.  

    I think that the drama series debuting this year (at least on broadcast) have few if any contenders, I guess you’d have to consider James Spader only because he’s James Spader, and maybe, Toni Collette… but beyond that who knows.

    I plan on watching Trophy Wife tonight, but I watched Back in the Game and The Goldbergs the other day. The Goldbergs has potential so I’ll give it a few episodes, but oh my God, Back in the Game was just abysmal. We can easily leave that one off of the list. Of all the new network dramas, I think the only one with a chance at getting major noms is The Blacklist. I’d love to put Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. down for writing, but drama is too competitive right now. As for comedy, there’s a few potential canidates. The Michael J Fox Show is an easy one to put down on the list simply because it’s MJF, but’s it’s also getting good reviews. The other 2 with potential are The Crazy Ones and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The Crazy Ones has been getting pretty mixed reviews so far but out of all the new comedies this might have a shot due to Robin Williams. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is by 2 writers from Parks and Recreation and early buzz has been good so Emmy voters could love it. Really looking forward to the new season of network TV.

    Oh, and my bet for the first cancelled show is Dads.

    I agree that Ackerman was extremely appealing in the role.  The TV critics at the TCAS thought the creator of Trophy Wife was hysterical during the show’s panel.  She evidently based the show on her own life experience of marrying an older man with kids.

    I think Michael J. Fox is almost an automatic (and almost always deserved) contender, so I’m looking forward to watching the pilot.  I’m curious as to “Crazy Ones” because I can’t tell from the previews if we’re getting “Good Morning Vietnam” Robin Williams, or “Patch Adams” Robin Williams.  But I love that James Wolk and Hamish Linklatter are both back on TV, and hopeful that one of them might break through.

    Also looking forward to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to see what Emmy potential it might have as well….

    I think that as long as it’s not a marketing tie-in on every episode (the pilot revolves around a McDonalds commercial) and the cast is good, it should be a good comedy. Now Emmy worthy is the question.

    I’m all down for Orange is the New Black! Definately lead actress, has a few guest actress submissions, possibly writing.

    Sleepy Hollow looks like a contender for technical awards. Also, I think we might see Dracula make a big Emmy splash if it’s done right.

    Sidenote: I think The Goldbergs is going to be the first casualty followed by the one with Rebel Wilson.

    I think it’s between Dads (FOX) and Sean Saves the World (NBC). Both shows look horrible.

    I think ABC’s “Lucky 7” will the be first casuality or ABC’s “Betrayl” I just don’t see either one connecting with viewers at all.   I think Betrayl will get confused for “Revenge” by a lot of people and get lost in the shuffle.

    I think the likeliest Emmy contender is gonna be The Michael J. Fox Show. As dead as Lead Comedy Actor is – and has been the last few years now – I’m prepared for Michael J. Fox to sweep with nominations and wins. And I’ll throw Betsy Brandt into the mix too. With two guaranteed open spots next year (Laura Dern, Tina Fey) and a likely third (Edie Falco — hey, they dropped McCarthy this year) and probably fourth (Poehler — At this point, she’s filler), there’ll be room for Brandt in the Jane Kaczmarek/Patricia Heaton-type role. 

    The Crazy Ones is either gonna flop hard or soar like a bottle rocket. Even though Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar have Emmys on their mantles, I’m still hoping it’s a hit and can land them some more hardware. 

    The verdict is still out on Jon Voight in Ray Donovan.

    If a female from Emmy King Michael J Fox’s show breaks out, I would really hope it’d be 2x Tony winner Katie Finneran, not…freaking Marie.
    Honestly, even teenage presumable daughter Juliette Goglia has impressed me more in small spots in Easy A and Veronica Mars than that Marie.

    I guess you are counting Gellar’s Daytime Emmy then.

    The verdict is still out on Jon Voight in Ray Donovan.

    At this point, I do not think that he is even getting a Globe nomination.
