1. Once Upon a Time (ABC Sundays) [last week: 1]
I really like this new storyline with Peter Pan as the archvillain(?). He's powerful, clever, and exudes malevolence.
2. Scandal (ABC Thursdays) [last week: 2]
A couple of strong episodes marred only by the seemingly inevitable return of the "forbidden love" storyline. The highlight was seeing Drunk Mellie laying waste to Fitz with a verbal flamethrower.
3. Survivor: Blood vs. Water (CBS Wednesdays) [last week: 3]
Blindsides, strategic playing, and no Colton. What could be better?
4. Hawaii 5-O (CBS Fridays) [last week: 4]
Still hilarious. I don't watch it for any logic or realism. It's just about the banter between McGarrett and Danno, the blue interrogation room, and Hawaii.
5. Marvel's Agents of SHIELD (ABC Tuesdays) [last week: 6]
The episodes have been getting better of late. Tighter stories, and the nerd pair has been less annoying.
6. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC Thursdays) [last week: 5]
The second episode was more straightforward than the pilot, but this is still dropping in my rankings. It's just not as compelling as "Once Upon a Time," and its ratings suck.
7. Grimm (NBC Fridays) [last week: 7]
Hasn't premiered yet.
8. The Blacklist (NBC Mondays) [last week: 8]
I'm almost caught up. I can see why this is the highest rated new drama (I think), but I can't see it moving up much in my rankings. It's like Alan Shore (star James Spader's character on "Boston Legal" and "The Practice") because a bad guy or something. I thought Spader had acting range, but he's just smirking his smarmy way through the episodes.
9. White Collar (USA Tuesdays) [last week: 9]
Some potential to move ahead of the stumbling shows just above it.
10. Person of Interest (CBS Tuesdays) [last week: 10]
Haven't gotten around to watching the first four episodes of the season yet.
(missing the cut) Shark Tank (ABC Fridays), The Voice (NBC Mondays/Tuesdays), Castle (ABC Mondays).
Cut: Sleepy Hollow (Fox Mondays), Revolution (NBC Wednesdays), Hostages (CBS Mondays).
