"Second chances are a powerful thing."

CBS has posted some promotional clips for its four new fall shows. The clips are a mix of trailer and interview-hype and, well, let’s just say that I’m not excited for the network’s new shows.

Accidentally on Purpose. If anyone watches more than one episode of this show this fall, it’ll most definitely be accidentally. Hey-yoooooo!

The Good Wife. Wasn’t excited about this show before seeing this clip. Less excited about it after the fact.

I made it two-thirds of the way through. Tried to get through the whole thing. Just couldn’t do it man. And also, god damn it, when can I get Chris Noth in a show I can actually get behind? I don’t think that’s too much to ask for.

Three Rivers. Ok, I don’t care if you like Alex O’Loughlin. This show looks ter-ri-ble. Seriously, I think I need an ass transplant, because this clip makes me feel hemorrhoidal.

Ooooh, I get it. The title’s clever, yo. Three Rivers, as in Pittsburgh. And three, as in, the story’s told from three perspectives. Lovely.

NCIS: Los Angeles. I don’t watch the original “NCIS.” Haven’t seen a second of it. So I can’t speak to this show as far as it being a spinoff. But looking at it on its own, from his clip, it looks a perfectly passable show for it is, that is, a competent procedural. Doesn’t mean I’ll be adding it to my rotation, but looks like it’ll be worth a shot if these type of procedurals are your thing (plus, LL tells us the cast is hot, so it’s got that going for it).
