New Shows:

SUBURGATORY (ABC) - Jane Levy is a big-city teen girl who moves with her single dad (Jeremy Sisto) to the suburbs and gets a rude awakening to the Stepford-like quirks of her new neighborhood.

REVENGE (ABC) - Story of a young woman who integrates her way into high society where she can get close and then destroy the family that ruined her father 17 years ago. Stars Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Gabriel Mann and Henry Czerny.

UP ALL NIGHT (NBC) - Will Arnett and Christina Applegate are new parents who didn't anticipate what sleepless nights would do their lifestyle. Maya Rudolph plays Applegate's boss, and Nick Cannon's in there too.

FREE AGENTS (NBC) - Divorced Alex (Hank Azaria) and widowed Helen (Kathryn Hahn) are co-workers and cynical about love, but nevertheless decide to give love another go with each other.

THE X-FACTOR (FOX) - Simon Cowell is back, as is Paula Abdul, in this new singing competition with the age limit of 12-99, and group acts are allowed.

I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER (FOX) - Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl) and Katie Finneran (Tony winner) are two single moms dealing with their mean-girl teenagers.

H8R (CW) - Mario "I'll host anything" Lopez oversees this show where "celebrities" like Snooki and Kim Kardashian hunt down and confront their fierce, anonymous online critics.


Suburgatory should do nicely between The Middle and Modern Family. I'm actually surprised ABC is leaving Happy Endings in the plum post-Modern spot. Curiosity should be through the roof for X-Factor. I've read good about Up All Night and bad about Free Agents and I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
