G.C.B. (AKA Good Christian Belles)  (ABC)

Cast:  Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) as Amanda Vaughn, Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies) as Carlene and Annie Potts (Ghostbusters) as Gigi

Premise: A divorced mother  returns to her small Southern town and discovers that the  local women’s prayer group is anything but pious. The female inhabitants can barely manage to remove their white gloves before metaphorically clawing her eyes out.

How Watchable: Well, Kristin Chenoweth is in it, and I’m a recent devotee of hers.  Her presence will go a long way toward making it watchable. I don’t know that I care about the premise though – not particularly charming.


The Secret Circle (CW)

CastBrittany Robertson (Life Unexpected) as Cassie Blake, Thomas Dekker (The Sarah Connor Chronicles) as Adam Conant, Shelley Hennig (Secret Circle) as Diana Meade

Premise:  A teen girl moves to a new town and discovers that she and her classmates are witches.

How Watchable:  It’s based on another series by L. J. Smith.  If it’s anything like Vampire Diaries, I’m there.


Hart of Dixie (CW)

CastRachel Bilson (The O. C.) as Zoe Hart, Scott Porter (The Good Wife) as George Tucker, Jaime King (Sin City) as Lemon Breeland

Premise:  A NYC doctor is forced to go to Blueberry, Alabama. She has a bit of culture shock and not everybody welcomes her.

How Watchable:  Bilson has a certain warmth that might make this Sweet Home Alabama-esque situation palatable.


Ringer (CW)

Cast Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy!) as  Bridget/Siobhan Martin, Nestor Carbonell (Dark Knight) as Victor Machado, Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) as Andrew Martin

Premise:  A woman, on the run from the mob, secretly takes over her recently and mysteriously deceased twin sister’s life.

How Watchable: I couldn’t possibly stop myself from watching it.  Plus, it sounds a little quirky.


Bent (NBC)

Cast David Walton (Burlesque) as Pete, Amanda Peet (Identity) as Alex

Premise:  A lackadaisical contractor meets at a recent and bitter divorcee.

How Watchable:  Frankly, I don’t see how this setup could be a series. Nonetheless, the leads are appealing, so I plan to check it out.
