'Revolution'? 'Mindy'? 'Nashville'? What's your favorite new TV show this season? POLL

One month ago, Homeland and Modern Family were named Best Drama and Best Comedy at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards. Their crowning ushered in the 2012 fall TV season, an exciting new beginning filled with surprising triumphs and unsurprising failures. (Made in Jersey and Animal Practice, we hardly knew ye!)

It’s too early to tell whether any of the networks’ shiny new shows will dethrone Homeland or ModFam at next year’s Emmys. Still, we’ve seen enough of them to know which ones are live-watch musts, which deserve a spot on the DVR… and which should follow CBS’s legal drama and NBC’s monkey comedy to an early grave.

For now, though, let’s keep things positive. Which of the following new shows is your favorite one of all? Vote in the poll below — and explain yourself in the comments.

Entertainment Geekly: 'Big Brother' finale, 'Last Resort' premiere, and the fall videogame preview

The dog days of summer are officially over! This week on our podcast dedicated to all things geek-tacular, Jeff Jensen and I take a good hard look at the upcoming season of videogame sequels. There is one game we’re excited about (hint: It’s about assassins who have a creed) and a new console we’re skeptical about (hint: it rhymes with P.U.) But that’s just a warm-up for a big conversation about the epic finale to this season of Big Brother, which already inspired yours truly to write a 4000-word recap. (If you’re a Big Brother fan, be sure to check out Big Daddy Dalton Ross’s Inside TV podcast this week, which functions as a hilarious and sad epilogue to the season.) We wrap up this week’s podcast with a conversation about Last Resort, the new ABC nuclear submarine drama. Bold predictions are made, boldly!

Summer is over, which can only mean one thing: TV is coming back! On the new episode of Entertainment Geekly, Jeff and I talk about the new and returning shows that we’re most excited about. Topics discussed include: The crazy ambition of Last Resort, the hopeful possibilities in the concept for Revolution, our simultaneous excitement and concern about the final season of Fringe, our managed expectations for the third season of The Walking Dead, and an attempt to figure out exactly what the first season of American Horror Story was all about. And also Homeland, because who doesn’t dig Mandy Patinkin?

'Last Resort' series premiere: The 20 most badass lines from ABC's out-there submarine drama

Watching Last Resort is like jumping into an ocean of pure testosterone and getting into an underwater kung fu fight with a Great White Shark that has three cyborg arms, and one arm is holding a flamethrower. Why does the shark have a flamethrower underwater, you ask? Shut up, that’s why! And I mean this all as a compliment. ABC’s ambitious new submarine drama is currently streaming its series premiere on Yahoo!, and the sheer amount of dropkick plot twists thrown into the first episode — heck, into the first ten minutes — make this, if nothing else, one of the most eccentric pilots of the fall TV season. By my count, Last Resort has roughly 50 main characters, each of them with two or three internal conflicts, which will hopefully play out over the next few seasons, assuming that America is ready to have its collective brain blown out of its skull.
