The Mob Doctor
Honestly, how could anyone be interested in a show called The Mob Doctor? This is so gimmicky it’s ridiculous. Let’s take The Sopranos and turn it into a medical/crime procedural. This will tank faster than The Playboy Club, which is unfortunate, because the cast is solid.
Ben and Kate
This looks over the top and unnecessary. Of the three new Fox comedies, this will likely be the worst. I predict cancellation by mid season.
The Mindy Project
I know what Mindy Kaling can do, so it’s unfortunate that we’re only seeing a taste of it in this trailer. That said, this seems like the perfect pairing for New Girl. If she can find a “Girls” sort of voice and be something a little deeper than New Girl, this should do fine.
Interesting concept made even better because of the starring presence of Kevin Bacon. If they can sustain an entire series without feeling forced and give Bacon some great material, this could be something major for Fox.
The Goodwin Games
This preview is the best I’ve seen yet, if for nothing else because it’s extremely well done and stars the glorious Becki Newton. I was getting a little choked up in the trailer alone, which almost always means the actual show is never as good. However, I’m going out on a limb and betting on this one. It looks genuinely funny, touching and clever with some serious staying power. The potential here is apparent. So long as we’re not eight seasons in and these games are still happening.
