Based off a segment that “The Morning After” on hulu does here is my list of shows that you should catch, commit or drop.

Not a complete list. Share your favorites in the comments .

Aaron’s @zaffuto234 List

NBC’s Revolution: Commit

The show continues to grow its main characters and the power mystery is bringing me back every.

Fox’s Ben and Kate: Catch

The show cant seem to find its grove continually but when it does you have a great cast that makes you laugh.

Fox’s New Girl: Commit

Its funny and continues to be.

Fox’s Raising Hope: Commit

I cant get enough of the quirky comedy.

Fox’s The Mindy Project: Drop

Just don’t find any of the character very likable.

ABC’s Don’t Trust The B**** In Apartment 23: Catch

The show had James trying to put together a Dawson’s Creek reunion so the show is worth watching at times.

NBC’s Go On: Commit

Though not Matthew Perry’s best work he alone makes the show worth watching weekly.

NBC’s The New Normal: Catch

When its funny its very funny.

NBC’s Chicago Fire: Commit

The whole cast brings this show to life. Full of suspense, action and plenty of drama.

ABC’s Nashville: Commit

Stellar cast and great drama is enough to keep me around.

CW’s Arrow: Commit

Action packed story draws you in every week.

NBC’s Whitney: Drop

NBC’s Guys with Kids: Catch

What can I say, I on occasion enjoy a comedy that requires zero thinking. It reminds me of shows you find on TBS such as “Men At Work” or “Sullivan and Son”.

NBC’s Up All Night: Drop

The show lost its steam completely for me with the season 2 changes.

NBC’s The Office: If you stuck with it from the start Commit, the casual viewer will want to Catch as the show has had its ups and downs this final season.

NBC’s 30 Rock: Commit

Its final season has been terrific and it will be sad to see this one go.

NBC’s Parks and Recreation: Commit

The only show on tv that makes you really care about politicians and government. It will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

ABC’s Last Resort: Commit

Though the ratings have been awful the show is incredible and the mystery and cast is worth checking out weekly.

ABC’s Scandal: Commit

A bit of everything. Scandal packs so much into a single episode leaving the suspense and drama at a high.

CBS’s Person of Interest: Drop

I got into the show for the first few episodes of season one but as soon as the show took a break I had completely forgotten about it and had little reason to start watching again.

NBC’s Grimm: Commit

The show continues to impress me weekly. Who would of thought a show launching on a Friday would be doing so well now in its 2nd season and stronger then ever, story wise and ratings.

ABC’s Once Upon A Time: Catch

ABC’s Revenge: Commit

Commit for now. The complex story is starting to make me long for season 1 but I’m committed for now.

ABC’s 666 Park Avenue: Commit

Low ratings be damned I’m fully enjoying the show.

USA’s Burn Notice: Commit

Season 6 has been on fire with lots of high paced action.

CW’s Beauty and the Beast: Drop

Just didn’t find any of the characters likable and the plot has been done before and much better.

CW’s Emily Owens M.D: Drop

CBS’s The Big Bang Theory: Drop

Yes, I’m aware im going to get a lot of smack for this one. I liked the show briefly then I found NBC’s more unique line up in the same time slot and never looked back.

The Walking Dead: Commit

Scott’s List

My Personal List Of What Shows  To Commit To, Catch, Or Drop:

NBC’ Revolution: Commit

Revolution Is An Intriguing Drama Series That Will Keep You On The edge Of Your Seat Each And Every Week.

Fox’s The Mob Doctor: Catch

Although The Future Of This Show Is Most Likely Doomed, I Would Recommend That You Check It Out. I Enjoy Watching The Show Each Week. Also If You’re A Fan Of Medical Dramas, This Show Is For You.

NBC’s Go On: Catch

Go On Isn’t Quite A Relatable Show, Which Is Why It Get’s The “Catch” Rating. However, The Characters Are Eccentric And  Funny, And The Show Is All Around Fun. If You’re Looking For A Simplistic, Family Comedy, This Is It.

Fox’s Raising Hope: Commit

Raising Hope Is A Hilarious, Relatable Comedy, That Has Been Renewed Three Times. The Cast Members Are Relatable, And Entertaining. I would Recommend That You Commit To This Show, 100%.

ABC’s Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23: Catch

This Show Is Hilarious, But A Bit Raunchy, At Times. The Cast Roster Includes A Colorful Array Of Comedic Talent. The Show Packs Many Laughs Into An Episode, And It Is A Funny Comedy, To Watch.

NBC’s The New Normal: Catch

This Show Pushes The Limits, With An Old Grandma Who Constantly Makes Homophobic, And Racial Remarks. However, Somehow, NBC Was Able To Craft This, So That The Viewers Found It To Be Funny. Overall, The New Normal Is A Whole Hearted Comedy, That I Recommend You Should Catch Sometime.

CBS’s Vegas: Drop

Vegas Is Not As Great As I Expected It To Be. The Storyline Is Dull, And Contains A Lot Of “Fillers”. I Found Myself Constantly Looking At The Time, To See How Much Longer The Episode Was Going To Be On. Despite The Big Name Cast Members, Vegas Is Far Below Par.

FOX’s The Mindy Project: Catch

The Mindy Project Is A Fun Show, With Quirky Characters. I Recommend That You Watch The Show, When You Get A Chance To do So.

NBC’s Whitney: Catch

I Watched Whitney, When It Premiered Last Year, And Found The Show To Be A Fun, Simplistic Comedy. I Recommend That You Watch The Show, When You Want A Laugh.

NBC’s Law And Order: Special Victims Unit: Commit

Law And Order: SVU Is Perhaps The Best Branch Of The Law And Order Genre. The Show Is Intriguing, And You Can Start Watching From Basically Any Point In The Show, And Still Grasp The Story. I Started Watching The Show Around 2 Years Ago, And It Instantly Grasped My Loyalty.

NBC’s Guys With Kids: Commit

It’s Rare That I Recommend Committing To A Comedy, But This Show Deserves It. The Show Is Simplistic, But The Characters Are Highly Relatable. Also, The Show Is Produced By The Comic Genius, Jimmy Fallon. I Find Myself Watching The Show Every Week, And Impatiently Waiting For The Next Episode.

ABC’s Nashville: Commit

Nashville Swept Over Me, After Watching The Pilot Episode. I Feared, After Watching The Promos, That I Wouldn’t Like This Show, But I Was Wrong. The Show Has A Great cast Lineup, And The Storyline Is Ever So Addicting. And Don’t Worry About The Country Music Aspect Of The Show. I Highly Dislike Country Music, But That Didn’t At All Stop Me From Loving The Show.

NBC’s Chicago Fire: Commit

NBC’s New Hit Drama, Chicago Fire, Has Definitely Made An Impact, On Me. I Thought The Show Would Be Interesting, When I Heard About It A Few Months Back. Little Did I Know, This Show Is Addicting, And Difficult To Not Watch. The Show Is A Mix Between a Medical Drama, And An Action Movie. I Would Definitely Suggest That You Commit To This Show.

CW’s Arrow: Commit

Arrow Has Made Me A Huge Fan Of The Show. When You Think Of Arrow, Think Of An Epic Mix Between, Batman, The Cape, Along With A Hint Of Superman. This Show Has Become A Weekly Part Of My Wednesday Life. If You Haven’t Yet Watched Arrow, You Really Need To Do So, And Become A Regular. You Won’t Regret This Decision.

NBC’s Up All Night: Catch

Up all Night Is Almost Worthy Of The “Commit” Rating, But Not Quite. I Became A Fan Of The Show, After It Premiered, Last Year. The Show HAs 2 Quirky Lead Characters, And Laughs Galore.

Fox’s Ben And Kate: Catch

Ben And Kate Is A Rather Simplistic Comedy That Packs A Boatload Of Laughs Into A 30 Minute Timeslot. The Character’s Are Relatable, And The Show Is Fun.

TruTv’s Conspiracy Theory W/ Jesse Ventura: Catch

I’ve Recently Become A Regular Viewer Of  This Show, And It Is Highly Intriguing. This Show Revolves Around Jesse Ventura, And His Investigation Of Conspiracy Theories. I’ve Never Believed In Many Of The Conspiracy Theories That Are Out There, But This Show Has Me second Guessing Myself. Even If You Don’t Believe In Conspiracy Theories, I Recommend That You Check This Show Out.

NBC’s Last Resort: Commit

Although The Future Of This Show Is Foggy, I Would Definitely Recommend That You Commit To It. This Show Is Full Of Action, and It Even Has A Cloud Of Mystery Surrounding It. I’ve Become A Fan Of This Show, And I Would Recommend It.

ABC’s Scandal: Commit

Scandal Is A MAgnificent Drama Created By Shonda Rhimes. Scandal Manages To Grasp My Intrigue, And Loyalty, Each And Every Week. Scandal Has Everything That A Person Could Want: Drama, Romance, Humor, Conspiracy, Mystery, Intrigue. This Show Is Somewhat Underrated, But It Truly Is Great.

CBS’s Elementary: Commit

Although This Is A Show that Has Received Heavy Criticism, I Can See It’s True Potential. Before Watching Elementary, I  Thought That It Would Be A Dull Show. However, That’s Not The Case. Elementary Has Likeable Characters, And Something For Every Viewer. The Show Is Basically A Show About Crime Solving, So You Can Expect The Weekly Dose Of Mystery, Intrigue, Action, etc. I Feel That This Show Is Highly Underrated, And Should Receive A Bit More Praise.

ABC’s Revenge: Commit

Revenge Is A Magnificent And Addicting Drama. This Show Has Everything: Drama, Romance, Conspiracy, Cover-Ups, Murder, Plotting, etc. The Show Took Me By Storm With It’s Epic Series Premiere, Last Year. From Then On, I’ve Become a Big Fan Of The Show. The Show Will Keep You Guessing, And It Will Keep you On The Edge Of Your Seat, Every Week.

ABC’s 666 Park Avenue: Commit

Although The Ratings Of This Show Are Terrible, That Doesn’t Reflect Upon The Content Of It. This Show Is An Interesting And Mysterious Drama, tha tIs Full Of Supernatural Entities. When You Think Of This Show, Think Of LOST. 666 Park Avenue Can Be As Confusing And Mysterious As LOST, At Times. However, This Show Is Highly Addictive, and Entertaining.

AMC’s The Walking Dead: Commit ∞

What Can I Say About This Show? Regular Viewers Of This Show Know How Epic And Addicting It Is. I Got Started On This Show, By Watching A S1 Marathon 2 Years Ago, And I’ve Been A Huge Fan Since. This Show Has Everything That You Could Want: Romance, Action, and Of Course Violence And Zombies! For Those Of You Who Have Yet To Watch The Walking Dead, You Need To Do So, Immediately.

Favorite Episode Quote(s):

1) “First Of All, I Was Not Wearing An Ascot.”   – Wes

2) “Go Kick Their A**.”     – Dr. Ryan



Tonight’s Finale Was Exceptionally Epic! Tonight’s Finale Really Focused On The More Serious Aspect Of The Show, Rather Than The Comedic Aspect, Which Was Great. In Tonight’s Episode, The Question That We’ve Been Pondering All Season Was Answered: Why Did Wes Pull His Gun On Travis? Tonight’s Finale Really Showed How Good Of Friends Travis And Wes Really Are. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Second Season, But I Really Do Hope The Show Gets Renewed. Overall, I Really Would Recommend Common Law.

Be Sure To Catch Up On The First Season Of Common Law, In Anticipation Of A Second Season.

 We Will Continue Our Coverage Of This Show If And When It Returns.

Favorite Episode Quote(s):

1) “You Dirty Dog, You.”   – Travis


Tonight’s Episode Of Common Law Was Great, As Usual! The Show Continues To Put A Comedic Spin On Law And Order Which Creates A Unique Environment For The Characters. Travis And Wes’s Unconventional Friendship Makes The Show Highly Entertaining. I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of The Show, Since Watching The Pilot. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Second Season, But I Highly Expect Common Law To Be Renewed. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Common Law. Watch Common Law Live: Friday’s At 10/9C. On USA.
