PopWatch Confessional: What show have you unintentionally seen every episode of?

The broadcast Upfronts are coming next week, that time of year when TV fans find out, for certain, which broadcast shows are canceled. A good time to reflect on your own viewing habits.

My confession: I’ll be sad when Rebel Wilson’s Super Fun Night is inevitably no more and the ABC press site removes the pity “None available. Check back soon” message from where photos, videos, and press releases promoting upcoming episodes should be. Not devastated, but mildly disappointed. READ FULL STORY

'Super Fun Night' premiere: Is the Rebel Wilson comedy super fun?

Did you love Pitch Perfect? Did you leave Bridesmaids wondering who that Australian chick was? Then you will love Super Fun Night — which is to say, if you weren’t in the Rebel Wilson fan club before, the ABC comedy won’t change your mind.

As Kimmie Boubier, Wilson is the same charmingly goofy funnywoman she’s been in her past roles. This time, she’s a junior attorney in New York who, after a big promotion, is inspired to trade her Friday nights in with best friends Marika (Lauren Ash) and Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) for exciting new adventures — or at least a piano-bar outing.

As someone firmly in Wilson’s corner, I’m excited at the prospect of weekly doses of Rebel. That’s not to say the show is perfect; it isn’t. But there’s a lot to love here — which wasn’t intended to be a weight joke, though the show boasts plenty of those (Spanx are at the center of no fewer than four gags in the premiere).

So let’s take a closer look at some of the best lines and moments from our first look at Super Fun Night:

PopWatch Planner: 'Breaking Bad' finale, the return of 'Scandal,' and a 'Super Fun Night' premiere

We begin with one of the most momentous TV finales ever on Sunday with the conclusion of Breaking Bad. Hopefully some good tunes, a new comedy, and the return of a sassy crisis manager can help ease the pain until that Saul Goodman spin-off.

All times listed are Eastern.

'Hostages,' 'Mom,' and more: 6 shows our TV critics are keeping an eye on

As EW’s TV critics, we’ve already weighed in with our six best new shows of the fall, including buzzy series like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Blacklist. But now, we present six more new shows — these ones aren’t necessarily the best, but there is potential in them. Here are the shows we’ll be keeping our eye on this fall.

Premieres Friday, Oct. 25, at 10 p.m. on NBC
The vampire drama has been done to death. But if anyone can bring it back from its shriveled, dehydrated-human-jerky corpse, it’s Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who’s such a pale, slithery nightstalker, it’s easy to believe he actually spends his nights slurping from goblets of Type-A Negative and growing out his fingernails to Nosferatu lengths. So it’s a stroke of genius to cast him as Dracula in this 19th century period drama, which finds our fanged hero posing as an American entrepreneur so that he can seek revenge on the Order of the Dragon, a group of Victorian high-society folks who cursed him long ago. Because Dracula is brought to you by the exec producers of Downton Abbey, there’s also plenty of frilly costumes and forbidden romance: Dracula keeps getting distracted by the beautiful Mina (Jessica DeGouw), who might be the reincarnation of his dead wife. The melodrama is cranked up so high, you can almost see Rhys Meyers stifling laughs. But Dracula’s fight against the rich kids does have a certain 99-percenter timeliness, and the secret-society angle should excite the Comic-Con geeks — especially when Van Helsing shows up. —Melissa Maerz
