Default Which new sitcoms have the best chance at success?

Which new sitcoms for this season have the best chance at success?

Will ABC's Wednesday night line-up of 4 new comedies work?

Which actors are you excited about returning to sitcoms?

My money would be on Hank. It's multi-camera and quite a traditional, simple plot.

Some of others will probably suceed, but I'm less certain of which. "The Middle" for example, it's like Malcolm in the Middle and could have longevity like that show - but I don't think a show like that is ever going to be a hit (in real terms, not in critics' or its network's terms). Same with any other single-camera show. As this season's cancellations prove, with Everybody Hates Chris & My Name Is Earl, single-camera shows don't last that long (in comparison to hits like Friends, Frasier, Two and a Half Men, etc.).

Cool

I voted for Hank. Not because of Kelsey Grammer. Because of Macey Cruthird. She was the best thing about Hope and Faith! I can't wait to see her in this show.

The Cleveland Show since FOX already renewed it for a second season.

I think ABC has the best chance of all the networks with its sitcoms with 3 out of 4 possibly lasting the season and half of them being renewed for the following season. I see failure for "The Cougar." I have high hopes for "Hank," "The Middle" (which may or may not make it past the season) and "Modern Family." "The Cleveland Show" looks like it will last. I'm not that impressed with the others.

I went with Hank, as it does sound like the most easy-viewing new sitcom next season. Traditional, family, Kelsey Grammar - all the signs are there for a hit

The Middle, Modern Family, and Cougar Town could all work. Accidentally on Purpose could also pull out decent ratings, but from the sound of it, and airing after How I Met Your Mother, it may take the road of Worst Week.

I'm going with Hank and The Cleveland Show (which I probably won't watch really).
As I stated somewhere else, I think Cougar Town and Accidentally will flop, but JMO. NBC's will probably not be breakout hits, I STILL don't get the hype over any of their sitcoms.

Well based on the current buzz i'd say "The Cougar", "Mordern Family" and "100 Questions" all have potential to last several seasons. i'm hearing "Hank" and "The Middle" are both stinkers...

I was going to say the Goldbergs. I remember when the Goldbergs premiered and many critics predicted it would be among the first to be cancelled. I figured once it ended the first season and it was renewed it would be okay. The first season it was a bubble show, renewed and sent to Wednesday and is now going on the 7th season.

Did that start in 09? This is an old 2009 poll I stumbled across. Most posters thought Hank was going to be the big success.

No, much later. For some reason I missed that this thread was that old. I was thinking the thread meant what current shows would be classic. I guess I should hav read the entire post first. I remember neither the Middle or Modern Family was predicted to be popular, and that was proven wrong of course.
