The Originals


Holy Thursday night debuts, Batman!

Tonight, three, count 'em, three comedies and The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals premiered, and according to us, only one of those shows was really worth watching. Did you agree and follow our advice?

The Originals, starring Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gilles, Charles Michael Davis, Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin, has a ridiculously attractive cast, but there is much more to it than just really pretty faces. Like we said, come for the hot people, stay for the compelling drama and supernatural fun! Witches, voodoo, rivalries,'s all there and it's all good.

Meanwhile, the other three debuts fell short with the laughs and the likable characters. Sean Hayes, Mike O'Malley, Will Arnett…what went wrong? We were so happy to see these people on our small screens, we just wish they had better material to work with. But that's not to say the people in charge won't work things out. Eventually. The problem is, most people judge shows by their pilots. So judges, what did you think of these three new comedies? Guilty of bad TV or innocent until episode two?
