ABC clips: 'Super Fun Night,' 'Betrayal'
ABC yesterday revealed to the world its fall lineup and right now TVZone reveals to the world a few clips from said lineup. It's always fun to watch these, if only to get an instant vibe about what will work and what will not.
This is not necessarily a surefire way of determining winners — if memory serves, the "Modern Family" tease underwhelmed years ago — but the indication is strong indeed that if, for example, during a plug for a comedy you don't laugh once, then you probably won't get all that much from the full 22 minutes.
But ABC has a very aggressive lineup, with a full, new slate on Tuesday, and you can be certain a few of these will work. Here are some newbies that Paul Lee, ABC Entertainment, yesterday seemed to bestow special favor upon, in no particular order. (I posted "S.H.I.E.L.D." earlier, and that will undoubtedly be a hit.) I've stayed away from midseason, except for one exception: "Mind Games."
Meanwhile, tomorrow, we'll give you our two cents about what looks good, what does not.
