Ranking the new fall TV trailers, from best to worst 

Entertainment Weekly
1. I Feel Bad (NBC): KRISTEN: "Here's what every woman knows: We feel bad about something every day." Thank you, TV, for validating my existential crisis! DARREN: Mom Sarayu Blue telling her kid "I am so sorry we can't afford a stranger to take care of you" made me laugh out out. Good sign! KRISTEN: Also a good sign: There are more brown people than white people in this pilot. Good job, NBC! DARREN: Our main character works at a videogame company, which feels like the new architect/art gallerist go-to TV job. KRISTEN: Hey look, it's Paul Adelstein! He's always a good sign. DARREN: Discussing feminism at a videogame company for wry comedy: Also a good sign! KRISTEN: The title also reminds me of Nora Ephron's book I Feel Bad About My Neck, and I'm going to choose to believe it's an homage. DARREN: This looks fun! It seems to be tapping into a similar mom-crisis-comedy vibe as Tully, but without the [incredibly bizarre spoiler], so I'm in. KRISTEN: Ditto. I feel good about I Feel Bad. (DEFINITELY FIRST TO THAT JOKE, DON'T GOOGLE IT.) 2. All-American (CW): KRISTEN: FOOTBALL! I'm having FNL flashbacks, which makes me happy. DARREN: A shooter at a football game! Well, that took a bleak turn. KRISTEN: Taye Diggs is now recruiting the star player, played by Daniel Ezra, to come to his team in Beverly Hills. DARREN: His family is concerned it's not the best thing for him. Will he lose himself when he leaves his neighborhood? KRISTEN: But it's a better, safer school, says Coach Taye Diggs. DARREN: Did someone just describe a character as "my tortured alt-left sister"? KRISTEN: Yes, and now the white kids are asking the star player if he's in the Crips or the Bloods. Not a great intro, white kids. DARREN: He's is suddenly being invited to pool parties in Beverly Hills. I'm into this! Some great Los Angeles cross-cultural race/class drama. KRISTEN: Wow, so this is like FNL meets The OC meets Boyz in the Hood? DARREN: "If you can make something of yourself, maybe I can too." Already crying. KRISTEN: Yes, I am for sure in. Damn you, Greg Berlanti - you've done it again! DARREN: The CW's target demo loves Berlanti for his DC stuff, but the vibe here reminds me vaguely of his wonderful Jack & Bobby, which merrily juggled sensitive teen drama with big political ideas. Great job! 3. The Rookie (ABC): KRISTEN: Nathan Fillion as a 40-year-old police rookie. SOLD. DARREN: "You're about to hit the street with a loaded handgun and no idea what happens next." KRISTEN: Side note: Nathan Fillion doesn't really look 40. His colleagues dismiss him as a "walking midlife crisis," so he's got to prove them wrong. DARREN: This looks like a darker, more emotionally bruised Fillion than we got on Castle. I like emotionally bruised Fillion! KRISTEN: I like Fillion in any form. 4. Murphy Brown (CBS): DARREN: This trailer is done in the style of a mockumentary, and begins with the election of Donald Trump, so the revival seems to be getting back to that topical/"argue with Dan Quayle" sweet spot. KRISTEN: Murphy left FYI but now she's back, because Trump. KRISTEN: Was your roommate Andy from Parks & Rec? DARREN: Similar, but with twice my IQ. KRISTEN: TYNE DALY! Murphy says she's back to "take on this crazy new world of alternative facts" because "it's our civic duty." DARREN: I didn't laugh at all during this trailer except during the clips of the original series. But I am excited by the prospect of a smart multicam sitcom that can react quickly to our crazy political world. KRISTEN: The original creator, Diane English, is back - so I'm optimistic. 5. Grand Hotel (NBC): KRISTEN: "Five-star hotel, five-star secrets"! Now that's a tagline. DARREN: Is this a show about a wacky hotel where people have sex with each other? KRISTEN: Correction, it's a soap opera about a wacky hotel where people have sex with each other. DARREN: Set in "the last family-owned hotel in Miami Beach." Demián Bichir is the patriarch, and he's selling out the family hotel to a higher bidder. KRISTEN: Is his sexy new wife making him do it? His kids think so. DARREN: So it's a modern-day Magic City with a Latino cast. I AM SO GODDAMN IN. KRISTEN: A young woman in a maid's uniform just told someone, "I'm pregnant," so I, too, am SO IN. 6. The Neighborhood (CBS): KRISTEN: Cedric the Entertainer headlines this comedy about a man whose family has lived in a black neighborhood in L.A. for years. Until . WHITE FOLKS MOVE IN. DARREN: Potentially, a comedy of gentrification? Interesting. KRISTEN: Cedric's character, Calvin, is not amused. DARREN: Dreama Walker sighting! She's now "married couple on a sitcom" age, which means I am also that age. KRISTEN: Cedric does a good "white guy" voice. DARREN: Him imitating a white guy saying "I really find Rihanna attractive" made this white guy laugh. KRISTEN: Now the white neighbor is hugging all his black neighbors and saying, "I'm sorry if I seem racist." For CBS, this qualifies as edgy. I'll admit it, Darren, that looked kind of funny. You really can't go wrong with Cedric. DARREN: I wish the Midwestern guy didn't seem so bland. But I like the basic setup here. 7. Whiskey Cavalier (ABC): KRISTEN: Scott Foley IS Whiskey Cavalier, one of the Bureau's best agents. DARREN: And he just parted ways with his fiancée! I remember that J.J. Abrams pitched Alias as, basically, a show about Felicity from Felicity becoming a spy. Now we have a show where Noel from Felicity becomes a spy! And then Keri Russell was a spy on The Americans. #CallSpeedman. KRISTEN: Hey, it's The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan as a "relentless" CIA operative. What are the odds that they'll get together? So maybe this is Mr. and Mrs. Smith, on a broadcast TV budget. DARREN: I do like Lauren Cohan and am excited to see her on a show where she can presumably smile more than once every two years. KRISTEN: Hey, it's Ana Ortiz from Ugly Betty! This looks fun, not just in a trying-to-look-fun kind of way. DARREN: Yes, and also in a the-pilot-will-look-10-times-more-expensive-than-the-rest-of-the-show way. I'll stick around to see if they have chemistry. 8. Charmed (CW): KRISTEN: "Nothing is stronger than your sisterhood," says a loving mom to her two teen daughters. DARREN: Mom is - unsurprisingly, given that this is a Charmed reboot - a witch. She dies! KRISTEN: Her death leaves her sisters estranged and miserable, and then . a third sister shows up on their doorstep! The power of three! DARREN: The three sisters start noticing strange, magical things happening around them. The magic looks a little more X-Men-y than on the original Charmed, but I like the X-Men. KRISTEN: Freezing time! Moving things with their mind! Hearing everyone's thoughts! DARREN: Oh hey, it's the guy from Hellboy but not Hellboy 2. KRISTEN: He tells them they are the "charmed ones," and that mommy was a witch. And that witch mommy was murdered. DARREN: They are tasked with protecting the innocent and vanquishing demons. It's interesting how Charmed was kind of a supernatural outlier on the WB, and now it fits right into the CW's superhero slate. KRISTEN: Yes, as will the reboot of Roswell, coming next year! This looks like a competent remake, but I'm not sure it was entirely necessary. Though, to your point, it fits well into the schedule and it's been updated with a more diverse cast - so perhaps it'll be a gateway for young'uns to discover the original. DARREN: I think it's harder now for any "superpower team" show to stand out. But I'm intrigued by the presence of Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder Urmanand, and it's never a bad time for an ode to kickass sisterhood. 9. Manifest (NBC): DARREN: A group of people on a flight disappear. Quite a concept for a new show in 2004! KRISTEN: Oh no, 20 seconds in and you have two of my worst nightmares: traveling with fa... read more
