Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.
Blacklist – Fall
The Blacklist — (Photo by: NBC)
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

Will NBC's target demographic of adults 18-49 watch remake of a show whose original version aired before the majority of that demographic was born? Will it help if said remake stars Blair Underwood?
Those questions will be answered come fall, when NBC debuts a remake of the 1960s-70s cop drama "Ironside." It stars Underwood ("The Event," "In Treatment") as Robert Ironside, a New York City detective who was paralyzed while on duty and now leads a team of detectives who work some of the city's highest-profile cases.
The trailer hits all the cop-show marks -- Ironside clashes with his superiors! He's a maverick! His team is unconventional, but they get results! -- but Underwood is undeniably charismatic in the lead role. The cast also includes Pablo Schreiber, Spencer Grammer, Brent Sexton and Kenneth Choi.
"Ironside" is set to air at 10 p.m. Et Wednesdays on NBC in the fall. »
The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

Update 2:15 p.m. Et: NBC has also ordered a spinoff of its freshman series "Chicago Fire" called "Chicago P.D." The new show will focus on uniformed officers and detectives in a Chicago precinct and star Jon Seda and Jason Beghe, both of whom have appeared in several "Chicago Fire" episodes this season.
NBC is not done picking up new series for next season. The network has added another drama and comedy to the six new shows it had previously ordered.
The latest drama pickup is "Ironside," a remake of the 1960s-70s series about a detective who is paralyzed on the job but continues working. It stars Blair Underwood ("The Event," "In Treatment") in the title role. (Raymond Burr starred in the original.)
The remake also stars Brent Sexton ("The Killing"), Spencer Grammer ("Greek"), Kenneth Choi ("Sons of Anarchy") and Neal Bledsoe ("Smash"). Michael Caleo ("Rescue Me," "The Sopranos") is the creator. »
And NBC's pickups continue! After ordering two dramas and three comedies on Thursday, the peacock network picked up two additional pilots on Friday. Ironside, a drama starring Blair Underwood, who last starred on NBC's short-lived The Event, and a sitcom from Cougar Town and Scrubs' creator Bill Lawrence join J. J. Abram's Believe and the About a Boy TV adaptation as the projects that made the cut. Ironside: Underwood stars as sexy and acerbic police detective who is relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting in this remake of the '60s series, which will find his character pushing and prodding his hand-picked team to solve the city's most difficult cases. Greek's Spencer Grammer, »

Well, we can't say we didn't see this coming, although we do feel bad for series star Steven Pasquale: After posting the lowest-rated scripted premiere in the history of the Big Four networks, "Do No Harm" has been taken off NBC's schedule after just two episodes.
Per THR, "Do No Harm" opened on January 31st to just a 0.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers before dipping even lower last night (February 7th) to a 0.7 demo rating. It now stands as the swiftest cancelation to come during the 2012-13 TV season.
NBC will replace previously scheduled episodes of "Do No Harm" on February 14th and February 21st with encore broadcasts of long-running procedural "Law & Order: Svu."

According to Deadline, the project is being written by Mike Caleo and produced by Universal TV. It "centers on an acerbic, sarcastic detective in a wheelchair (Underwood) who pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in San Francisco."
David Semel had initially been attached to direct and executive produce but he's no longer involved. Caleo will executive produce Ironside with Teri Weinberg of Yellow Brick Road, John Davis and Jon Fox. Underwood has had a development/talent holding deal with Universal TV since August.
The original Ironside TV series was produced by Universal and ran for eight seasons on NBC, from 1967 until »
"Ironside" was once an iconic TV detective, a wheelchair bound warrior played by Raymond Burr. Now, it looks like Blair Underwood is ready to fill that rolling seat: NBC has ordered a new "Ironside" pilot starring Underwood in the title role.
The network picked up the pilot on Tuesday (Feb. 5), and Underwood's participation was confirmed on that same day. "Ironside" will be, according to NBC:
"A tough, sexy but acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city."
Whatever changes the new show might make to the classic, at least Ironside himself will remain pretty much the same. No other casting for the pilot has been announced.
