Another season, part 2

Savannah Sawyer

Last week in my column (“Another season,”) I wrote about the shows I am disappointed to see go off the air. I only listed three, but there were so many I found during my research that were cancelled.

But something else I noticed was the lack of television shows airing their pilot episodes this fall.

I?mean, I am well aware that there are a plethora of television shows that are new this year, but none of them seem to interest me.

To be honest, the only one I’ve heard of without having to do any research into the topic is the new comedy cop show starring Andy Samberg, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

Now, I love Andy and was devastated when I discovered he was leaving “Saturday Night Live.” I can’t get enough of his band, The Lonely Island, and I miss all the digital shorts his group brought to the table during his time at “Saturday Night Live.”

But, in all honesty, the previews I’ve seen for this show look stupid. The jokes are dull, and I find myself shaking my head in dismay the whole way through.

The fact that this is the only show that I know of off the top of my head makes me fear for the future of television. If anyone knows of new television shows it would be me.

After researching, I’m starting to doubt this season even more.

I came across a list of shows on and have not even heard of a single one, except for, of course, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

There were 33 shows listed on the website and there is not a single one I plan on watching.

Maybe I’m getting over my television phase.

Who am I kidding. But maybe I am stuck dwelling on past shows instead of looking foward to new ones.

I pray there will be shows that will be brilliant and prove me wrong after they air.

Or, maybe next year, a great new batch of shows will make their way on to my television screen.

I guess my current favorites including “Parks and Recreation,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Community,” “Pretty Little Liars” and “Modern Family” will have to keep me busy this television season.
