Two summers ago I found myself lamenting that there was nothing on TV. You know when you get to that place where there’s not a game you want to watch, everything’s in reruns or a “reality” show/competition? So, I looked up all the new shows that would be on that fall.

My dad and I have always liked guessing whether or not we think a show will make it. I decided we should make it official and take bets. I gathered all the trailers for the Fall 2011 shows. We watched each preview and then tried to decide whether or not the show would get picked up for a second season. We weren’t allowed to research what critics were saying, this round was all about gut reaction. Then, we’d watch the pilot and get a second chance to decide if it’d be renewed- again, no researching. It’s like March Madness for TV (only I’m much better at picking shows than I am a basketball teams).

Surprisingly we were fairly accurate. Naturally we don’t include reality shows, that’s too complicated. And there are always curve balls. Who’d have thought a show like Two Broke Girls or The Neighbors would get picked up for a second season? Certainly not us.

The CW is also incredibly hard to gauge. I’m still not over the fact that they cancelled Emily Owens, M.D. I think the writers hacked into my brain at times because her thoughts were so very much my own. Like this one:

“The thing about being an adult that no one tells you growing up is that you don’t feel like an adult. All your stupid insecurities and anxieties are still there, only you feel more stupid and insecure about being stupid and insecure because you’re not supposed be stupid and insecure anymore. You’re supposed to have the answers. You’re supposed to know. But we don’t always know. And those answers? They’re not always easy to come by. Well you know what? I’m done feeling stupid and insecure about feeling stupid and insecure. The truth is, I think part of being an adult is that you stop waiting for yourself to change and you start to accept who you are.”

No matter the outcome, be it it gratitude for a renewal or outrage at a cancellation, we’ve always had fun. So, this year, I’m sharing the fun. I’ve organized everything you need to start a competition with your family, friends, or coworkers. If you’re friends with me, feel free to send me your picks. I’ve already made mine!

Here is a PDF of the document* I use to determine what’s on when and keep track of who bets what: Fall 2013 TV

This is a youtube playlist including all trailers for the new shows coming to a television set near you:

And finally, if you, like my dad need to see what a particular show is up against to determine your pick here is a great link from TV Guide: http://www.tvguide.com/special/fall-preview/fall-schedule.aspx?wcid=14

To the winner goes the bragging rights!

*Note this does not include reality or cable shows and is also for the start of the fall season -not the mid-season mix up.
