New Monday Show Survival Chances
Scorpion (CBS) - Poor. I just don't see this show meshing with the comedies before it or the drama after it. The premise doesn't seem appealing or all that accessible. No comedies in the 9pm hour won't last long.
State of Affairs (NBC) - Fair. It seems like it's trying to capitalize on The Blacklist and Scandal and that's not a bad thing, but I had to think if it was a good show, NBC would want to premiere it when The Voice is at its strongest in either September or February. I think the late start will make it pale in comparison to The Blacklist.
Gotham (FOX) - Good. I'm pretty high on Gotham for FOX. I think it'll draw more non-comic fans than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I hope it lives up to the intrigue creatively. It's great counter programming to sitcoms and reality competitions and I also see it having a big online/social media following.
