    Hopefully all new comedies burn to the ground. Edit: Except: The Mindy Project.

    Chicago Fire (NBC) – I see it being renewed for a second season, but ultimatelygetting cancelled when ratings dip that year.

    Canceled:
    Animal Practice (NBC)
    Beauty and the Beast (CW)
    Guys With Kids (NBC)
    Emily Owens, M.D. (CW)
    Made in Jersey (CBS)
    Partners (CBS)
    Revolution (NBC)
    The Mob Doctor (FOX)
    666 Park Avenue (ABC)
    Elementary (CBS)
    The Neighbours (ABC) – no way it won’t get cancelled, they’ll be changing timeslots before the year ends, and it sounds too stupid to find an audience on ABC (if it was on CBS on the other hand…)

    I might be the only one who thinks this, but I think The Mindy Project will not make it to a second season.  For one thing I haven’t liked anything I’ve seen from the advertisements, and I don’t think it will be able to hold consistant ratings for an entire season.  I guess we will just have to wait and see though.

    The ones I’ve seen…

    The worst is Guys with Kids. I don’t think it will even have time to “fade” away. It will be cancelled right away. It’s on NBC and it pretty much deserves to, it was awful.

    The Mindy Project is tricky because the Pilot wasn’t as good as you would have hoped, but it’s in the same night as New Girl and Raising Hope so perhaps that combo will hold itself up, I think Ben & Kate is also here. I also believe that there’s a possibility that the show will actually improve down the line. I mean if Up All Night made it.

    Revolution is just ridiculous, but you never know with these shows, even if all the Lost copycats have been cancelled so far, JJ Abrams & Co. still managed to make Person of Interest highly rated, God knows how. Again, it’s on NBC where nothing lasts.

    Elementary will most likely make it. I think that it being basically a case of the week CBS show but this time with Sherlock Holmes and a female Watson will prove interesting to CBS viewers. 

    Animal Practice was a bit on the lame side but I think that comedies have a much better shot at making it on NBC these days. The same could be said for Go On which had a nice second episode rating, without any competition of course, but still. 

    The New Normal is yet another tricky show. I think it’s the “I’ll watch it even though I know it’s not good” show of the year. Sort of like Up All Night (which is much better) because somewhere in there you know there might be something good. I think a lot of people will feel the same and somehow it will make it.

    I don’t have a clue about Last Resort. It seems good, but the first 30 minutes looked cancelled as hell, it got better by the end but I need a second episode to make up my mind about this one.

    Right now, I’m really rooting for The New Normal, The Mindy Project (I thought both pilots were very good), Nashville…and Emily Owens (I will support Mamie Gummer until I am dead!)

    I’m really anticipating Nashville more than I expected. I’m excited to see Connie Britton front-and-center headlining a series. Even though she was the lead on Friday Night Lights, she shared those accolades with Kyle Chandler (and it was beautiful). Then, of course, American Horror Story was completely an ensemble piece (with Jessica Lange and Evan Peters being the MVPs even though Britton was the “lead”). Now, with Nashville, it’s all Britton. Hayden Pannetierre is firmly in the Supporting role and, even though this looks like Country Strong: The Series, the previews are really making me believe it will be better than I originally thought. If it’s a hit, I could see it easily garnering Britton the Globe win for Lead Drama Series Actress (always going for the hip, new, and fresh; and at other times playing catchup. The only other likely nominee/winner I can think of right now is Emily Mortimer/The Newsroom or just mmmmaybe Emily Van Camp/Revenge).

    I’m surprised at the skepticism of The New Normal. Not only do I see it doing well, but I see it being a big contender in the major categories. 

    I could be wrong on all of the above but those two – Nashville and The New Normal – are the ones I’m hoping will be hits and survive as long as the quality is there.

    Sigourney Weaver, Political Animals (if the Globes consider it a drama series)

    This one is tricky.

    For some reason the Globes still seem to have the word “Musical” in the Comedy Series category, but I think they will leave that for shows like Glee, which is clearly a comedy with music. 

    However, the Globes might take any chance they can get to justify the word “Musical” in that category, it’s pretty ridiculous that they never took it out, but it will look weird as hell. I’ve always thought that one of the main reasons they place their so called movie musicals in the Comedy categories is because they never seem to have enough comedy contenders, which is not the case for series. So Nashville should go to drama.

    Though my next point is unrelated to the topic question, the same can be said about Smash. Debra Messing and Anjelica Houston have a lot of appeal to name hungry HFPA.

    I can’t really comment on what is staying or going, but I can only assume the New Normal rises but then falls in its second season. As for the Mindy Project I can see renewal, look at it’s time slot and how it will reap the precious youth demographic

    I think The Mindy Project will need a season to figure itself out, like The Office and Parks and Rec did.

    By the way, let me just say a quick word on my support for Guys With Kids. No, the show isn’t inventive, or smart, or unique, it’s the same stuff weve seen before. But, wasn’t the stuff weve seen before pretty good? The show’s only aim is to make us laugh, and for me it did!

    But I thought this wasn’t about the shows you WANT to be renewed, but the ones you think WILL be. I don’t see “Guys With Kids” lasting. Nobody tunes to NBC for multi-camera anymore and it has terrible reviews and word of mouth.
