<I>The Mob Doctor</I>: A Big Pile of Medical Waste

Full disclosure: I've got a soft spot for mediocre medical dramas. I still watch Grey's Anatomy. I have every intention of watching all of Emily Owens, M.D. I sat through every episode of both Hawthorne and Off the Map. And I watched ER from its great start until its bitter end. So with all that being said, The Mob Doctor is so awful that watching the pilot twice (for reviewing purposes) was excruciating for me. This new series is so poorly written and developed that I'm praying for a swift cancellation so that I can block it from my mind and everyone involved can move on to better things. I really like Jordana Spiro (from My Boys) and adore Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights), so I figured that at the very least, my enjoyment of two of the leads would keep me intrigued for a few episodes.

Fox Upfront 2012: If All Else Fails, They Still Have Zooey Deschanel

The Fox upfront presentation began with a pre-taped bit about the cast of New Girl interviewing for a new roommate, and their options were Fox stars ranging from Mr. Schue to Walter to the kid from Touch. Oh, and Emily Deschanel, because they couldn't resist making a sister joke. It was cute and the highlight of the network's hour-long presentation, for sure. Most of the rest focused on clips from this season of New Girl, a live awkward bit of banter between Zooey and Mindy Kaling about who is the most adorkable Fox star of them all, and Ryan Seacrest being Ryan Seacresty. They also made a big deal about The X-Factor and officially introduced new judges Demi Lovato and Britney Spears, while making a couple of digs at The Voice. I suppose they had to fill the time somehow, because aside from talking about some new random animation domination HD thing that's going to air in the dead of Saturday night (11 PM-12:30 AM), and referencing baseball as much as they could, there really wasn't a lot of new stuff to show off. But here's what we thought of the new programs they did preview:

TWoP 10: Burning Questions About Fall 2012 TV
