The Fall 2012-2013 Serialized New TV Show Scorecard (Big 4 Networks Only)

Last season I wrote how I thought it was a big mistake for networks to continue down the path of full serialization.  I gave them the key to the lock of the mass audience heart, they looked at it, thought it didn't fit, and have continued down a path of serialized TV destruction.  As I said, the way of the future, on network TV, is hybrid serialization (full definition here), and if your fully serialized show doesn't do that, your prospects are only on the decent side IF your show is good.  Even that is no guarantee of success.  By looking at the post I wrote about the 2012-2013 Pilots, which can be found here, we can begin to understand exactly what's going on with the fully serialized shows that are currently airing.  I'll add to the list as the prospects become more clear for the various serialized shows that will be arriving throughout the TV season.  Tonight is ABC's Revolution, with the premiere of their flagship make or break serialized show, Nashville (Wednesdays at 10pm ET).  Thanks for reading.
