Fall TV: Snap Judgements on the New 2012-2013 NBC Shows.
We’ve seen the network’s new fall and midseason pilots, and while they’re not for review (things often change drastically before the shows are set to premiere), we do want to share our first reactions with you.
There are 11 new scripted shows coming to NBC — the good (Ryan Murphy, please don’t mess up “The New Normal”), the bad (“1600 Penn,” you disappoint us!) and the stay-away-from-this-one-at-all-costs (why, “Animal Practice,” why?) — and plenty of varying opinions from HuffPost TV staff Mo Ryan, Maggie Furlong, Jaimie Etkin, Chris Harnick, Alex Moaba, Leigh Weingus and Laura Prudom.
Here’s how we broke them down:
Watch It: Awesome show, can’t wait for more
Skip It: It’s either horrible or just totally not their thing
DVR It: There’s potential, will give it a second chance
We started with “Animal Practice.” It wasn’t pretty, despite Crystal the Monkey.

Maureen Ryan: Skip It  MY EYES! MY EYES! Make me not have seen this!
