Link to Arrow on The CW.
Jenny’s Thoughts: First, HOT. The lead is smoking in this one. But besides that, the show looks great and I love the Green Arrow. I loved Justin Hartley as the character on Smallville, so I’m hoping Stephen Amell makes me love him, too. I like Katie Cassidy & Paul Blackthorne, too, so hopefully I’ll like the rest of the cast. I’m hopeful that this show lives up to my expectations. – Excited
Megan’s Thoughts: Another superhero show…but I’m in. I’m sure the stories will be interesting, but I’m going to go on my girl side right now and say: Stephen Amell is incredibly sexy. Will he live up to the hype? I certainly hope so, because I want to see him on my television weekly. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: I don’t really know anything about the character of The Green Arrow, but I enjoyed Smallville (with one exception – but I’ll get to that later). And I’m always willing to give a new superhero show a shot. – Curious

Link to Beauty and the Best on The CW.
Jenny’s Thoughts: The trailer really made me excited and want to watch. I LOVED the show in the 80s with Linda Hamilton. My mom & I used to sit and watch it together on her bed. So I’m hoping this brings a modern day twist to it and that it captures me like the previous version did. – Excited
Megan’s Thoughts: I am incredibly tentative on this one. The 1980s original show was hokey but entertaining. I’m just not sure that there is room for more hokey on our televisions right now, even if Kristin Kreuk is leading it. Pretty to look at, yet lacking substance in my initial opinion. – Most likely 1 and done
Kyle’s Thoughts: I never watched the original Beauty and the Beast TV series, and Kristin Kreuk and her love triangle was the absolute worst part of Smallville. I have absolutely no interest in seeing her pining away for another forbidden love. – Most likely 1 (if that) and done
Link to Emily Owens, M.D. on The CW.
Jenny’s Thoughts: While I like the cast (especially Justin Hartley), it’s not enough to make me tune in. This is too much like most of the shows on The CW (& ABC Family, for that matter) that I don’t like. It reminds me a lot of Hart of Dixie, which I quit watching after 2 episodes. My schedule will be packed enough as it is, so… – Not even 1 and done. I’m skipping this one.
Megan’s Thoughts: At first I was worried that another medical drama would be too much, but after watching it, I can’t help but be intrigued. I loved Mamie Gummer (Emily) on Off the Map, and I also adore the sexy Justin Hartley (Smallville), so this cast is already shaping up to be one I’ll love to watch. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: I like the main actors, but from the clip, I couldn’t really tell much about what the show is going to be like. Is this just going to be another Grey’s Anatomy? I suspect I will watch it for a while and then lose interest – which tends to be my M.O. for most CW shows. – Curious
Link to The Carrie Diaries on The CW.
Jenny’s Thoughts: Wasn’t a fan of Sex and the City and not a fan of shows like Gossip Girl, etc. Not even going to watch a single episode because don’t know any of the cast and it’s totally not my type of show. – Not even 1 and done. I’m skipping this one.
Megan’s Thoughts: I must be one of the few girls in the world who didn’t actually love Sex and the City, but I didn’t… Therefore, I am not overly excited over this. I’ll give it a shot to see what they did with the prequel, but I’m not optimistic at all. – Most likely 1 and done
Kyle’s Thoughts: I think I watched the first season of Sex and the City, and if this is just a Gossip Girl version of that, I have no desire to watch. I guess I will need to see a clip, but… – Most likely 1 (if that) and done
Link to Cult on The CW.
Jenny’s Thoughts: Based purely on the description and cast, I’m going to give this one a shot. The premise is interesting, and I loved Matt Davis on The Vampire Diaries & Robert Knepper (T-Bag) on Prison Break. Still…this is most likely going to be another CW/ABC Family-type show that just doesn’t keep my interest or feels too young for me. – VERY Cautiously Curious
Megan’s Thoughts: I like the idea of this show and think that if it’s done properly, it’s going to be intense. My fear is to fall in love with another CW show and get burnt again. (RIP The Secret Circle). I’ll give it a chance, but again, scared to get hooked. – Curious
Kyle’s Thoughts: The premise sounds interesting – and it’s great to see the guy who played T-Bag on another show. However, since this is The CW, I’m a bit cautious and worry that this will just be another poorly-produced and executed show like Ringer. – Curious
