'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.

The show revolved around lifelong best friends Louis (Urie) and Joe (Krumholtz). When Joe decides that he wants to propose to his girlfriend (Bush) the duo’s BFF status is threatened. When drama-loving Louis gets involved, there are all sorts of hijinks, prompting Joe to call off the friendship. READ FULL STORY
