What's Got Sizzle?
By JARETT WIESELMAN
Every year the major networks take over New York City for a week of promoting their new TV shows to Madison Avenue in hopes those mad men and women will want to buy ad time come fall. These Upfront Presentations give the world a first look at sizzle reels aimed to highlight the best (and hide the worst) of their new TV shows.
I've poured over all the pilot presentations to select 10 stand-out submissions; the shows that, based solely on their short trailers, are initially on my Must-Watch list. Granted, this is likely to change once full episodes are released for review, but it still gives you a good idea of what awaits your DVR this September.
