Fall TV Preview - Odds

Last year, there were 23 new shows on the networks. Six of them got a second season (Hwaii Five-0, Mike & Molly, Raising Hope, Blue Bloods, Nikita, Shark Tank). Three new midseason shows (Body of Proof, Harry's Law, Happy Endings) managed a second season as well.

This year, there are 27 new shows. This is the order I'd put them in for odds that they last a second season. Based on buzz, potential, early reviews, schedule and my own hunches.

1. The X-Factor
2. Person of Interest
3. 2 Broke Girls
4. Suburgatory
5. Ringer
6. Terra Nova
7. Pan Am
8. New Girl
9. Unforgettable
10. Prime Suspect
11. Up All Night
12. Allen Gregory
13. Last Man Standing
14. A Gifted Man
15. How to Be a Gentleman
16. The Secret Circle
17. I Hate My Teenage Daughter
18. Charlie's Angels
19. The Playboy Club
20. Whitney
21. Free Agents
22. Once Upon A Time
23. Man Up!
24. Grimm
25. Revenge
26. Hart of Dixie
27. H8R

Trivia: Of the 24 shows that debuted five years ago, only 30 Rock remains. Although The Game managed to become a hit by moving from The CW to BET.
