Not every new show will merit its own thread.  Until then, here's a catch-all thread for thoughts and comments.

I enjoyed the Event. Looking forward to Undercovers tomorrow!
Just finished Castle. Right back into the fun. Gosh, we love that show.

Agreed.

We're a few minutes into Chuck. The homage to the opening credits of I Spy was wonderful if you knew what it was (me) but just plain weird if you didn't (Jenn).

There were a lot of homages and in-jokes in the premiere -- undoubtedly some I didn't even catch. My favorite LOL moment was Chuck interviewing at Vandelay Industries.
We liked the pilot for The Event.

I'm glad -- very glad -- Chuck is back!

I especially like the producer's pledge that Chuck and Sarah are going be a couple. No "Will they or won't they?", no "break up to make up," no "I have to break up with you because I love you too much," no turning to Mr. Right Now because of a misunderstanding -- none of that! Yay! I like Chuck and Sarah as a couple; let us enjoy it!
I saw the season premiere of Lone Star and it was a little bit different than I expected, but in a good way. It did irritate me with the 4 musical interludes during the last half hour.

I did enjoy the one scene, when I jumped and said,"Hey that is just a few miles from where I grew up!" The scene where the main dude, Bob is talking to his dad in an empty office space. That never happens to me. Of course that scene was supposed to be in Houston, about 4 hours from where it was filmed, but the entire series is being filmed around Dallas. I am tentatively on board for now, but seeing those ratings means it probably won't be around for long. 4.1 million viewers for its debut, and already rumored to be on the chopping block.
Glee started its second season well. The pre-credits bit, having a student blogger interview Mr. Shu and the team and ask them questions fans and critics have actually had about the show, was genius. The new, female, football coach will be a great new foe for Sue. That woman is an actual international women's arm wrestling champion.

The Hollywood Reporter indicates Lone Star might join the "Canceled After ONE Episode" club: " 'Lone Star' Faces Cancellation After One Episode".

I don't know what went wrong here. It got mostly positive reviews, and it's not the same old, same old police/lawyer/doctor stuff.

I don't think Lone Star — or, actually, a lot of Fox's new shows — have been marketed particularly strongly. I don't know if it's a failing of the marketing department, a lack of confidence, or if it actually has been marketed and I've just missed it, but this show has flown under the radar pretty strongly.

It going up against the über-marketed The Event (not to mention Dancing With the Stars) probably didn't help, either.
USA Network seems to have had a few con-man dramas...maybe the audience didn't want another one...
I would agree with Alan in so far as being unaware of the show. I hadn't even heard of Lone Star until last week. Although, I don't really watch Fox, so there could have been a ton on there, and I would never have seen it. I do watch some FX though, and don't recall seeing any ads on there.
I was disappointed, actually. I thought there was a lot of backsliding in characterization. I also hated the musical numbers. Intrigued by next week's episode, though...

This is a surprise. It seems to be one of the best reviewed new shows of the season...
