This week, the major TV networks rolled out all their new shows for next season – and as usual, there are a lot of duds coming our way. (Did CBS not know there’s already an awesome “Sherlock” reboot on PBS before greenlighting “Elementary”?) But we still managed to find a few shows that look to be worth at least a one-episode tryout. Here are the nine new shows we’re making room for in our busy viewing schedules.
"The Mindy Project" (Fox, Tuesdays at 9:30 PM)
Mindy Kaling, always one of our favorite Dunder Mifflin worker bees, gets her own Fox comedy this fall – and Fox must like it, too, because they’re putting it in the coveted post-“New Girl” timeslot. Kaling plays a hopelessly romantic OB/GYN who dreams of being swept off her feet in classic rom-com fashion; Chris Messina (“Damages”) plays the doctor she’ll fight being attracted to for a few seasons before inevitably giving in. We’re happy to see Kaling get a much-deserved shot at stardom, and she even got a few big names to make cameos here, including “SNL’s” Bill Hader and her “Office” co-star Ed Helms. So we’re cautiously optimistic. Terrible title, though. Just awful.
