    My highly opinionated response…

    How To Live With Your Parents: Okay, that’s done it. I’ve officially O.D.’ed on Sarah Chalke.

    The immensely talented cast of Family Tools deserves a better show than what this looks like it’ll be.

    I like the premise of The Neighbors more than I’m liking the execution, but I’ll watch an episode or two, nonetheless — just watching a trailer, it’s hard to get a sense how successfully (or unsuccessfully) the show may pull it off.

    Nashville looks decent enough, it just doesn’t fit my taste.

    Last Resort: I love the dramas that deal with the gray areas of life and morality, and this definitely looks to be of that mold.

    Malibu Country: Yeah, uh, see my comment on Nashville, above. Except for the part about it looking decent.

    666 Park Avenue doesn’t interest me at all. But then, neither did American Horror Story.

    Red Widow: Hmm, if the trailer is an accurate depiction of the overall plot, I’m not sure how they’re going to keep that from getting stale throughout an entire season.

    FYI, your video for the Zero Hour trailer says “This video is private”. But I found it on YouTube, here:
    Intriguing. And I’ve always enjoyed Anthony Edwards. Though I fear they may have given away more than they should have in the trailer.

    Nashville – I think it’s a show my girlfriend will love and that she’ll end up watching by herself in the bedroom.

    Last Resort – That looks like the best of the bunch to me. And really, how can you go wrong with Andre Braugher?

    666 Park – Looks fine… but I think it’ll fade fast for me.

    I totally agree with you on The Family Tools. Awesome cast… but I’m hoping it Modern Family category then some kind of Tim Allen sitcom.

    Thanks for letting me know about the Zero Hour video. It was working fine yesterday.
