    Everyone should watch Chuck ASAP! Not only is the guy who plays Chuck a total hottie, but the show is really entertaining. Every week, it leaves me wishing that I was a secret agent!

  2. SaraPMcC on October 16th, 2007 10:11 am

    Pushing Daisies is great! It’s different, filmed beautifully, has great actors, and is just so unique. So far, I love it.

  3. Becky on October 16th, 2007 10:15 am

    I chose Chuck for this poll. It was a tie between that and Pushing Daisies. I went with Chuck because i’ve seen more episodes and i know that I’m going to keep it. I’m 99% sure I’ll be keeping PD too, but I just want to make sure. And Chuck….well, i loved it last night and I’m definitely keeping it.

    I also enjoyed the season premiere last night of Samantha Who? but not sure yet if it will be a permanent addition.

  4. SB on October 16th, 2007 10:16 am

    It was also a total toss-up for me between Pushing Daisies and Chuck. They’re both so great but totally different in their awesomeness.

  5. Katie on October 16th, 2007 10:25 am

    It was also a toss up for me between Pushing Daisies and Chuck. I love both of them; they’re both amazing.

    I always try to analyze why I like the shows that I do. I love sci-fi, but also like procedurals (crime and medical) and soapy ensembles. I think the common underlying theme is the relationships and chemistry among the cast and characters. So I think that I like Supernatural, Lost and Stargate Atlantis in the science fiction, Bones, Burn Notice, House and Numb3rs in the procedurals and Brothers and Sisters in the soaps.

    I am having a hard time finding that chemistry in this year’s new batch. The ones beginning to develop some chemistry are Chuck (despite the annoying Morgan), Pushing Daisies (although it is a bit too precious) and Dirty Sexy Money. As much as I would like to like the following shows they have not yet shown the spark in the relationships – Bionic Woman, Private Practice, Moonlight. Even Heroes is lacking that sense of mission or connection or identity. I think it is a writing problem. Maybe the writers are focused on the strike. We are not seeing the depth of character or dialogue of a Veronica Mars or Lost. I am disappointed in most of the new shows.

  8. Emily on October 16th, 2007 10:46 am

    I was torn between Chuck and Pushing Daisies as well. I went for Pushing Daisies in the poll because it’s so innovative and different. It’s almost not fair to compare it to the other new shows. But as far as pure enjoyment value, Chuck, Gossip Girl, and Reaper (in that order) are new favorites as well.

  9. Crystal on October 16th, 2007 10:48 am

    So far a lot of people seem to be torn between Pushing Daisies and Chuck, and I am no exception. I voted for Pushing Daisies, though, because I love its quirkiness. The dialogue is memorable , the visuals are incredible, and the cast is amazing.

  10. Liz on October 16th, 2007 10:53 am

    I’m going to shake things up a bit and put in my vote for “Moonlight” as my favorite new fall show. (Chuck and Pushing Daisies are two and three, though.) Moonlight is the perfect show for a Friday night because it’s not too intense and is always fun and exciting — a TV version of a popcorn movie. (I love FNL as much as anyone here on GMMR but that show can be pretty heavy for Friday night entertainment.) Also, Moonlight stars Alex O’Loughlin and Jason Dohring, who are gorgeous. Lastly, it’s about vampires! A winner all around.

  11. Quarkz on October 16th, 2007 11:02 am

    Pushing Daisies wins by default. But where is ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ in the poll? The show is all kinds of awesome.

  12. Carly F on October 16th, 2007 11:05 am

    Considering my three new faves: Pushing Daisies, Chuck, and Gossip Girl, I had to go with Pushing Daisies. It is beautifully made, original, romantic, sweet, well-written, and lots more good adjectives! Everyone who has even a hint of a fantastical, whimsical side should be watching this show.

  13. Natasha on October 16th, 2007 11:07 am

    I gave Chuck the slight edge over Pushing Daisies in the poll, but I’m enjoying them both. Chuck because it has some familiar elements put together in a new way–a taste of Alias and The Office, plus the adorable Zachary Levy. Pushing Daisies because it’s completely new and different–and the eyes and smile of Lee Pace.

    I enjoyed Samantha Who last night, but since I’ve seen only one episode, I’m holding out judgment on that for a few weeks.

  14. Emily S. on October 16th, 2007 11:09 am

    I vote Chuck. It has comedy, action, and a really cute lead actor.

  15. katayla on October 16th, 2007 11:28 am

    Pushing Daisies! I’m watching several other new shows, but it’s the only one I’ve fallen in love.

  16. Annie on October 16th, 2007 11:28 am

    I vote Chuck. But thats only because I have been so disappointed with Gossip Girl…the show I had been looking forward to. Its just sort of lame in all the ways that Josh Schwartz rocked The OC. Chuck still has that great chemistry and comedy aspect to it. Lets hope Chuck continues this great streak! 🙂

  17. Elise on October 16th, 2007 11:37 am

    Dirty Sexy Money! Although I love Pushing Daisies and Gossip Girl, and they did come in close second, DSM is my new fave. The family is absolutely outrageous and so much fun to watch.

  18. Alyssa on October 16th, 2007 11:37 am

    I’ve gotta go with Chuck and Life. Chuck is charming and highly entertaining, and Life is smartly written with a highly intriguing main character. I decided to watch Chuck the instant I saw the “Vicki Vale” joke in the preview, but I only started catching up with Life online after a friend recommended it to me. Seriously, NBC needs to advertise that show more, ‘cuz I’d only seen one ad for it prior to my friend’s suggestion, and it’s worth checking out.

    Sadly, I like it a lot better than Bionic Woman, which airs right before (and which I had been rather looking forward to).

  19. Amrie on October 16th, 2007 11:59 am

    I love Pushing Daisies – there is nothing like it on TV. I was a huge fan of Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me, so I knew this would be #1 for me this year! I can’t wait to keep watching!

  20. kilwiggle7 on October 16th, 2007 12:32 pm

    I like Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Kid Nation, Moonlight, etc… but my vote went to Gossip Girl. The Kristen Bell narration, the Penn Badgely hotness, and the downright cattiness and backstabbing make this show the ultimate guilty pleasure.

  21. clara on October 16th, 2007 12:40 pm

    i felt a little torn between “pushing daisies” and “dirty sexy money” but ultimately voted for “pushing daisies.” while “dirty sexy money” is decadently witty and dysfunctionally fun, “pushing daisies” has the more refreshing, original, sweet, magical storyline and pitch-perfect, talented, endearing actors. best show so far!

  22. Kristi on October 16th, 2007 12:44 pm

    I was torn between “Journeyman” and “Pushing Daisies” and since I knew a million people would vote for PD – I gave “Journeyman” a little love 😉

  23. CFO (not my initials) on October 16th, 2007 1:04 pm

    Okay, this was really hard to decide, but I voted for Carpoolers.
    This was the show that was not even on my radar, but I happened to catch it before Reaper, and it was hilariously funny! I fear this will go the way of Andy Barker, and not last more than a few episodes, but I think if given time, it could grow an audience.
    It was both believable and ridiculous at the same time. I loved it!
    So far, I seem to be the only one… haha
    But I stand by my choice: Carpoolers.

  24. 2mchtv.noschthng on October 16th, 2007 1:05 pm

    Hands down Chuck and Pushing Daisies are my favorite new shows. The wit, humor, and action are great!

    I love the relationships and the stories.

  25. Katrina on October 16th, 2007 1:29 pm

    I had to vote for Gossip Girl, although I have been pleasantly surprised by Private Practice, which I am surprised to see has so few votes so far. I haven’t had a chance to catch up with Chuck and Pushing Daisies yet!

  26. bubblewrap on October 16th, 2007 2:05 pm

    It’s a three way tie with me: Pushing Daisies, Chuck and Journeyman. I never thought I would love a show as much as The Office and Friday Night Lights- but these three come very close!

  27. Diana on October 16th, 2007 2:10 pm

    Pushing Daisies! I actually get giddy thinking about it, it’s so refreshing and brilliant! Honorable mentions: Gossip Girl, Chuck, Dirty Sexy Money and Moonlight (only because it puts Jason Dohring on my screen every week)

  28. Barry on October 16th, 2007 2:43 pm

    For me, I’m torn between three shows, all from ABC, a company I swore I would never watch again. I think Dirty Sexy Money and Big Shots are both really well done programs, with the later being genuinely funny, but my vote goes to Pushing Daisies.

    Pushing Daisies is not only one of the most visually stimulating shows on television, but the story is actually interesting and has seemingly endless possibilities. I just hope the show can stick with the great things we’ve seen so far.

    Big Shots has a great premise and cast, but for god-sakes hire a writer that knows puns and one-liners are the key to a quick exit in the world of TV comedies.

    Dirty Sexy Money is also amazingly skilled in drawing me back week-after-week to watch online with so many different levels of conflict possible. Only complaints really are that there are WAY too many main characters. I’m terribly confused, and when they say a name, I have no idea who they’re talking about until they show the consequences of the conversation.

    Of course that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

  29. Lauren on October 16th, 2007 3:41 pm

    Pushing Daises is my favorite show of the new season for its originality, creativity, and general AWESOME-ness. I love the cast, the dialog, and it is visually stunning. A joy to watch!

  30. Lauren on October 16th, 2007 3:43 pm

    Pushing Daises is my favorite show of the new season for its originality, creativity, and general AWESOME-ness. I love the cast, the dialog, not to mention that it is visually stunning. A joy to watch!

  31. Magstress on October 16th, 2007 4:01 pm

    Pushing Daisies is an amazing show and I love it already. Very original and I love that it has both romance and mystery elements to it. Plus when Olive broke out singing “Hopelessly Devoted” I knew this show was a keeper.

  32. Tracy on October 16th, 2007 4:02 pm

    Add me to the “had to choose between Pushing Daisies and Chuck” group. I gave the edge to Chuck because I flat-out love that show right now. It’s a new twist on an older concept and I love the dry humor. I can see myself watching Chuck for a while – as they drag out the chemistry between Chuck and Sara, of course.

    Pushing Daisies is also great, but I worry that the novelty will eventually wear off for me. I don’t have that concern about Chuck.

  33. CindyO on October 16th, 2007 4:08 pm

    I love Pushing Daisies! It’s very reminiscent of Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls, two shows that I really enjoyed when they were on the air.

  34. Kalie on October 16th, 2007 4:12 pm

    Like many people here, it was such a complete toss-up between Chuck and Pushing Daisies (I love watching Gossip Girl, but that one is in another category all it’s own and I watch it for the frothiness of it). Instinct tells me to go with Pushing Daisies, because it’s easily the most innovative, original television show to come along in a good while. However, I think I’m going to have to go with Chuck on this one. With Pushing Daisies, I already knew I was going to love it, especially since I was already well acquainted with the rest of Bryan Fuller’s creations. It wasn’t a big shock that I fell head-over-heels for that show. But with Chuck, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know who Zach Levi was (or the majority of the cast for that matter, except for Adam Baldwin, who I was initially meh about, despite me being a fan of Firefly).

    Chuck took me by surprise. It’s funny, charming, and overall entertaining. Not to mention, the music selection is fantastic – not surprising since it’s from Josh Schwartz. And I completely fell in love with Zach Levi who is definitely one of the biggest breakout stars for me this television season. It’s a mixture of comedy, action, and drama that’s not afraid to show a little bit of heart and certainly not afraid to be flippant and not take itself so seriously. While Pushing Daisies is very much a niche show, Chuck appeals to a wide variety of people. NBC truly has a winner with this one. Just four episodes in and I already look forward to it more than 90% of everything else on my television schedule.

    As for the rest of the television season, I have to say that this year is greatly improved from last year. I feel like there is so much good material on that it’s hard to catch up with it all.

  35. Parina on October 16th, 2007 4:12 pm

    This fall I’m torn between several shows that I like, but I chose Pushing Daisies for this poll. PD is a very entertaining show in its storytelling and visuals. I just love that this show can take me away from the real world for an hour because of how everything is put together so well. The narration and acting is just spectacular!

  36. Jenna on October 16th, 2007 4:36 pm

    It was a hard choice between Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money, but I had to go with the latter. DSM is just so deliciously deviant that it keeps me coming back week after week. I don’t think it takes itself too seriously and I really admire that. I think all of the roles are well-cast, and seriously, how could you not love Peter Krause?

  37. Elly on October 16th, 2007 4:44 pm

    No words can explain my love for Pushing Daisies. I know it’s only been two episodes, but what can I say… when a show has it, it has it. This show has actually managed to make me pause for just a split second when asked my favorite tv show. The Office will hold court in my mind for just about ever, but goodness, Pushing Daisies is a sublime way to break out of the Office-y “ultra realistic” mode. And damnit if I don’t absolutely swoon everytime Lee Pace smiles- I haven’t felt this way since the last time I saw JKras smirk into the camera!

  38. Billiam on October 16th, 2007 5:06 pm

    I voted for Chuck. Journeyman was a close second (I enjoyed the soap opera elements of the latest ep more than I would like to admit).
    Pushing Daisies is certainly a good show, but I haven’t really picked it as a favorite yet.
    I also like Reaper, but so far it’s been fairly formulaic.

  39. Pate on October 16th, 2007 5:27 pm

    So, although I’m the millionth person to say so…Chuck and Pushing Daisies are my faves. I voted for Chuck though, because Casey cracks me up big time and I think I just enjoy it more in the moment. (And those hanging dead bodies in that room on this past Pushing Daisies: HORRIBLE! Gave me the heebie jeebies in a serious way).

  40. AK on October 16th, 2007 5:31 pm

    I voted for Gossip Girl because I knew my other favorites (Pushing Daisies, Chuck, and Dirty Sexy Money) would receive enough love.

    Gossip Girl is the atypical guilty pleasure show for me: beautiful people, unrealistic (for most of us) lifestyles, unlikely connections, and (almost always) at least mildly happy endings. I think the young cast does well (no Emmy talk, obviously), and it’s just a good nighttime, soapy show.

    The other three have been described well by other users, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the shows progress throughout their first seasons!

  41. Carly on October 16th, 2007 6:35 pm

    Pushing daisies is probably the most unique show on television.
    The colors make me happy.
    Jim Dale narrates.
    What more could you ask for?

  42. BrokenBrain on October 16th, 2007 7:09 pm

    Chuck all the way. Funny, carefree, enjoyable.

  43. allison on October 16th, 2007 8:38 pm

    I chose Pushing Daisies. I think it’s hilarious in that off-kilter kind of way but also has some really sweet moments. As a viewer you really feel for Chuck and Ned and feel just as tormented by them not being able to touch as they do. Also, I loved Wonderfalls and since this was created by the same guy and stars Lee Pace, it reminds me of that show’s greatness.
    My second choice would have been Chuck, which I think is also a great show. But it didn’t get my vote because i’m not as emotionally connected with the characters and don’t feel as much chemistry between Sarah and Chuck.

  44. Maggie on October 16th, 2007 9:28 pm

    Pushing Daisies is fantastic! It is smart, funny, tender, kooky and unlike anything else on tv. I love it!

  45. turnitupoudcapn on October 16th, 2007 9:37 pm

    I’m so glad to see Pushing Daisies in the lead, it is truly an amazing show and my new obsession!

  46. maax on October 16th, 2007 10:28 pm

    I voted for Reaper because I love everything about it!
    It is hilarious, while yet still having that creepy feel.
    I love the look of the show that Kevin Smith set up with the pilot and also Ray Wise makes a great devil.
    (p.s. chuch and pushing daises are great shows too!!!)

  47. Jess on October 16th, 2007 11:38 pm

    If you can’t seem to get enough info on the life of a socialite, Dirty, Sexy, Money is where it’s at. It’s not a show that you should take too seriously, but it’s a good guilty pleasure, and that’s where my vote went tonight!

    I liked the first episode of Pushing Daisies, but the 2nd one fell short for me. I don’t really see how they’re gonna keep this going for an entire season, let alone a long-lasting series. I’m hoping it finds a way to revive itself, but it may have been better off as a movie.

    Private Practice really is a Grey’s ripoff. Over it.

    Everything else is just eh for me.

  48. Post-it Thief on October 16th, 2007 11:40 pm

    So I have zero free time this semester, but after catching the “pie-lette” of Pushing Daisies, Wednesdays became a whole lot better. I’ve continued to make time in my schedule for this delightful show. Plus, every time Lee Pace grins and those dimples light up…an angel gets its wings. Seriously.

  49. Lisa (aka lmr722) on October 17th, 2007 7:52 am

    I had to give a shout out to Aliens in America. On Monday night, I literally had tears coming down my cheeks from laughing so hard. The actor that plays Raja is just amazing, really amazing. It is truly love at first site for the role he plays – so innocent and sweet.

    If you haven’t watched it yet, you’ve got to give it a try. I also like Chuck and PD but with numbers so low in the poll, a show like AiA deserved a bit of attention.

  50. Liz on October 17th, 2007 10:46 am

    I chose “Chuck” but really it’s a tie between “Chuck” and “Moonlight”. I know “Moonlight” didn’t get a lot of votes but I think it’s a fun show.

  51. Carli on October 17th, 2007 1:40 pm

    I chose “other”. Where is Damages?!

  52. MD on October 18th, 2007 5:14 pm

    Gossip Girl! The cast is extremely good looking and the show fills the teenage primetime soap void that was left after the OC was cancelled last year. It is just a fun show to watch and not take seriously! Second place goes to Private Practice, only so I can continue to get a weekly Chris Lowell fix!
