Your Fall Television Preview: Everything Is a Copy of a Copy
Modern Family is, obviously, a big one. Winning four straight Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series, every network is trying to duplicate the show's success. So you'll notice plenty of wacky families hurtling onto your television screens this fall.
The loss of 30 Rock and The Office leaves a workplace comedy-sized hole hole in our hearts. Fortunately networks like CBS and Fox have just that lined up. We heard you liked Mad Men and 30 Rock, well here's a show about some wacky ad execs! And whaddyaknow, they're family too! Paging Modern Family.
Other hot trends are legal dramas and fond nostalgia. Shows like Masters of Sex and The Goldbergs look to capitalize on the "remember when" trend, while shows like Hostages, The Blacklist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Ironside duplicate popular law enforcement shows.
So, tell us, which recycled ideas are you liking so far this season?
