The grid of course reflects new time slots, like Whitney and Community now on the 8pm Friday block.
For new shows, I plan to check out Arrow, The Mindy Project, Revolution, Elementary, and 666 Park Avenue and see how those are. Knowing me, I'll stick with Arrow no matter what, all the way to its cancellation ten seasons from now.
Every year I feel like I watch less and less TV when I look at the network grids, but then I fail to factor in all the stuff I watch on cable and premium channels like HBO, Showtime and Starz.
I must say, the once-indomitable Thursday night comedy block has never looked more domitable. 30 Rock is nearing its end, The Office (rebooted for the second time in two years) is past its prime, and I don't watch Up All Night. Parks and Recreation is the only true Must See on NBC Thursdays for me.

Crazily enough, the TiVo straining timeslot for me is Friday evenings at 8:30 when Community goes up against the 2nd half of Shark Tank. Outside of NBC Thursday comedy . . . slim pickings (although the Fox Tuesday night comedy lineup could be ok).

As the older guy in the group, Monday looks DVR straining, as I like Castle and Hawaii 50 and want to check Revolution, Wed as Middle goes up against Arrow and Thursday as Last Resort goes up against Big Bang and 2.5. I am sure the wife will want to still watch Gray's (why? I dunno) so I can DVR POI, which is a fav. Elementary looks good.
Arrow, Revolution and Last Resort are my only new shows. Although I watched the premier of Go On last night after the O's and it wasn't too bad. Matt's still funny and the ensemble is amusing.

Only The Mindy Project for me. Terrible name for the show, though. It sounds like the IMDB listings when the movie doesn't have a title yet. I'd like to see it succeed though, Mindy has written some of the better The Office episodes. And she is nice to look at sometimes :)
