Fall TV's Best New Bets | CBS | 'Supergirl' & 'Angel from Hell' - Plus, a Midseason Bonus Pick

It's that time of year again, new fall programming is getting ready to begin and Eclectic Pop has picked at least two of the most promising new series from each network. Find out which of the new shows from CBS made the cut...

Yes, the trailer was campy and another superhero TV show might not be what television as a whole needs but this show has something few can claim to have, the perfect casting of its lead. You couldn’t ask for a better actress to play Clark Kent’s super cousin than the fantastic Melissa Benoist. When “Glee” took on the challenge of recharging its underclassmen for its fourth season, they hit gold with the casting of Benoist as Marley, the vocally talented and lovable good-girl daughter of the cafeteria lady.

Fall's Best New TV Bets: FOX

Gotham | The highly anticipated Batman TV series stars Benjamin McKenzie as James Gordon before he became the commissioner of Gotham. Apparently it will be the hybrid of a crime-of-the-week procedural, while also teasing introductions to the famous mythology. A young Bruce Wayne, Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are set to appear.

FOX’s foray into superhero television comes after The CW’s notable success with the retired “Smallville” and recent hit “Arrow”. Last season, ABC attempted to produce similar results with “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, which after sufficient early buzz saw its share of struggles. “Gotham” has a 16-episode order so FOX is taking a cautious approach before committing to more, a move that should prove fruitful either way. Premieres: Sept 22 & Airs Mondays @8pm EST

TV Report Card | 'Glee' Season 5 Review

Overview: Glee Club was disbanded as viewers bid farewell to Lima. Recent graduates Blaine, Artie and Sam joined Rachel, Kurt and Santana in New York and Mercedes made a much needed return to the series.

Storyline Direction Pros: The goodbye to Lima, while painful, was done with remarkable class. As was the loss at National’s which also served as a follow-up tribute to Finn. Talking about his loss felt a lot better and more natural than the previous tactic of radio silence. It was also extremely cathartic.

TV Rundown: March 16 - 21: 'Tomorrow People' Hits Its Stride

Best Show that Combined Being Humorous & Sexy: The Tomorrow People: This week’s episode “Superhero” centered on Russell (Aaron Yoo) as he tried to find his vigilante ex (Melissa Roxburgh). Russell offered up his characteristic zingers and Yoo got a chance to display his marvelous comedic abilities along with some great chemistry with his love interest for the episode, Roxburgh.

Meanwhile Cara (Peyton List) and John (Luke Mitchell) got a chance to play with the lighter side of their relationship where double entendres abounded and witty chemistry followed suit.

Most Entertaining Soap Opera Character: Ally on The Bold and The Beautiful: One of B&B’s most entertaining characters continued her reign as Ashlyn Pearce’s enthralling performance remained as engaging as ever.

TV Report Card | 'Glee' Season 5A Review

Overview: Lima and New York remained divided intervals wherein, Rachel continued to pursue her dreams of stardom on the big white way and the New (New) Directions attempted to maintain their former classmates’ Glee Club glory. The show also had to deal with losing one of its core members, star Cory Monteith and his character Finn Hudson.

Let's Discuss: Cory Monteith And 'Glee'

Cory Monteith, one of the stars of Glee, passed away two weekends ago, and with the immense heartbreak of his passing, a giant hole has been left in the hearts of millions of people. As an avid viewer of Glee, there will be a huge difference in the emotion tuning in to the show once provided. There is no question they can still count on my viewership.

TV Report Card | 'Glee' Season 4 Review

Overview: Glee’s 4th season followed the exploits of McKinley High’s new faces and that of former students, Rachel and Kurt, as they headed to New York to make their dreams come true.

Storyline Direction: Glee has always been a really great show and without going any further, there is no other world that TV has created that I wish the real world more closely resembled. Glee is more than a musical and contrary to some people’s opinions, it is not an After School Special. This is a smart, funny, quirky and honest show that is equal parts enlightened education and entertainment.
