Five Seriable TV Shows Make Critics’ Choice Most Exciting Newbie List

The Broadcast Television Journalists Association has announced the nominees for the ‘Most Exciting New Series’ category at the inaugural Critics’ Choice Television Awards to be held June 20th.

Five of the eight candidates are Seriable television shows – voted for by broadcast journos who have seen the pilots or available episodes for new shows airing after June 1st.

Head past the jump to find if the shows you’re interested in made the cut.

CCTA Most Exciting New Series

Alcatraz (Fox)
Apartment 23 (ABC)
Awake (NBC)
Falling Skies (TNT)
New Girl (Fox)
Ringer (The CW)
Smash (NBC)
Terra Nova (Fox)


Of the new 2011-12 Seriable TV shows, that’s pretty much what I would have selected – although I would have left Ringer out as it’s yet to capture my imagination like the others. Not saying it wont be good, but it has more ground to make up. Person Of Interest would have taken its place, in case you’re wondering. ­čś«

Falling Skies lands later this month, Terra Nova and Ringer this fall, while Alcatraz and Awake are set for mid-season.

Thanks to Robert for the heads-up.
