CBS Upfront 2012: Now With Even More Cops, Lawyers and Vegas

CBS president Les Moonves got us all excited about a one-minute long upfront at the beginning of the network's presentation this afternoon, but it actually went on for over an hour. And considering they only have four new shows this fall, that meant a lot of padding. So they filled it with Mike & Molly stars Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy bantering about their recent fake wedding and the lack of gifts they've received from their fellow CBS stars (except Ted Danson, who sent them a pony); the Two Broke Girls trying to find a way to make money; LL Cool J rapping; and Eli Manning trying to crack jokes (which, as we learned on Saturday Night Live, is not something he can do). Still, despite the fact that this was the network that showed us the fewest clips, the ones we saw actually had more promise than the other three this week so far.

It may be a country music show, but Nashville's uneven first season left Connie Britton fans singing the blues.

TWoP 10: Most Promising New Shows of the 2012-2013 Season

Based solely on the trailers and descriptions and scant amount of additional footage we saw during this week's network upfront presentations, here are the new shows that have piqued our interested for next season. Though since Ringer actually topped our list at this time last year, we're going to hold off planning our viewing schedules until we've had a chance to screen the full pilots.

Sarah Jessica Parker's Mole, 1965-2008

Sarah Jessica Parker's Mole, 1965-2008 It is with sadness that we must now mourn the death of Sarah Jessica Parker's Mole. Mole, born in 1965 in Nelsonville, Ohio, made its debut on the lower quarter of Sarah Jessica Parker's face about two millimeters below the right corner of her mouth, and subsequently went on to star as Annie on Broadway, in the cult '80s show Square Pegs, and opposite a youthful Helen Hunt in the movie Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. In the late '80s, Mole dated notorious bad boy Robert Downey, Jr. but wisely severed ties with the troubled actor in order to focus on its career. It also had a relationship with the late John F. Kennedy, Jr.
