Thursday nights on TV are somewhat of a death match and they just got a whole lot tougher.
Four new contenders entered the fight tonight and they're all heavy hitters in their own right. ABC weighed in with their Charlie's Angels reboot, NBC debuted Prime Suspect and the heavily promoted Whitney, and Person of Interest debuted on CBS.
We want to hear from you: Will you be clearing out your DVR to make room for any of these newbies?
Starring Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh, Charlie's Angels is ABC's modern take on the '70s hit. While critics haven't exactly showered the new show with love, we have a feeling viewers will at the very least tune in to see what the series is all about. Plus, we think people will love this new (kickass) side of Friday Night Light's Kelly. Added bonus: Ramon Rodriguez stars as the new (and totally hot) Bosley.
Michael Emerson and J.J. Abrams are reunited and it feels so good! The Lost duo has reteamed for CBS' Person of Interest along with Jim Caviezel in this crime thriller about a billionaire software genius and an ex-CIA agent teaming up to prevent crimes from occurring. It doesn't hurt that Dark Knight scribe Jonathan Nolan created the show and, as you all know, is all kinds of awesome.
NBC's two new Thursday night series are fronted by women—one cop, one comedienne. Maria Bello stars in the gritty reboot of Prime Suspect as Jane Timoney (originally played by Helen Mirren) and she is fall's newest badass. Though the overt sexism in the pilot was a bit much for us, we fully trust executive producer Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) and will watch anything he puts on our TV screens.
Whitney is a new kind of relationship comedy created by and starring Whitney Cummings (who also created CBS' hilarious 2 Broke Girls). Whitney is in a long-term relationship with Alex (Chris D'Elia) and has no desire to marry her live-in boyfriend. While we weren't fans of the multicamera live-audience format, we think Whitney may just strike a chord with viewers.
