1. I'm still catching up on all the good new shows from last year.

Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, mainly. This is a truly great time for tv.

Not to mention a lot of current shows have had some really good seasons like Dexter, Breaking Bad, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Curb Your Enthusiasm, you name it.

19. Being Human really isn't new...

The American version is a rip-off of the British series which has been on for about 3 years now. If you catch the episodes on BBC American,you will realize how crappy the American version is..

5. I honestly haven't watched most of the new intro's

on broadcast TV. Most of them didn't sound like anything that would interest me, and many of them are already gone.

The one new show I have watched and kind of like is the comedy 'Suburgatory' on ABC. No laugh track, told from the perspective of a 16 year old girl moved against her will by her single dad father from Manhattan to the affluent suburbs, where she is clearly the smartest and most down to earth of the entire lot of characters, be the teen or adult. It's a decent commentary on the shallowness of trying to keep up with the Jones's.

8. I would go with Once Upon a Time or Boss

Once Upon a Time is a show I am finding fascinating, the takes on established characters in a new setting and the back-and-forth story telling really works for me.

Boss has Kelsey Grammer doing an amazing job of playing a character you both feel bad for and hate at the same time, an amazing job.

9. Once Upon A Time...

Weekly viewing in our house, too.

Last week was sad but not unexpected.

23. Person of Interest is a very good & well written show...........

I didn't like Prime Suspect @ first, but the writing got better & I began to really like it, and I read it's been cancelled. Homeland on Showtime is a good show too.

25. Agreed on "Person of Interest." OTOH, the new shows haven't been super.

Only other new one I'm watching is whatsitcalled "A Gifted Man." That show is irritating and sort of interesting at the same time.

27. Game of Thrones

 

That's the only new series this year I've watched. My SO watches Once Upon a Time. I don't much care for it myself, though as I understand it's getting decent reviews.
