But that's not the only aspect of this show that inspired us to watch each new episode as soon as it premiered. Here are a few of the reasons we can't get enough of it.

We've arrived at that time of the year when networks face a few tough decisions (and a few no-brainers) about what shows will move on to see 2014-2015 season. Here is our list of the series that have made the cut so far. (If you don't see your broadcast show on this list, a decision is yet to be made about its renewal.)

We may have reached the traditional television season's halfway point, but lots of new series haven't premiered yet.

The shows listed here fall into all of these categories, and while I can't guarantee all (or any) of them will earn huge ratings or critical acclaim, I am intrigued enough by what I've seen of them to put them on my Watchlist for at least a few episodes.
