The new fall TV season is upon us once again, and if you've perused our fall guide listing premiere dates and mini-descriptions of every new series, you're probably feeling a little overwhelmed by the number of possible additions to your already crowded viewing schedule. We've screened the inaugural episodes of nearly every new fall series and compiled multiple (and sometimes contradictory) opinions of each network newbie. Pilots will be pilots, of course, and lots of shows get better once they've had a chance to settle in. But for now, first impressions are all that matter.
Below, you'll find our take on which new Fox series are looking good, bad, average, and just plain ugly. Check back tomorrow for our rundown of NBC. If you're looking for our thoughts on ABC's new series, those can be found here. Meanwhile, our opinions of CBS's new crop are here.
