This week the networks are hyping up the news series for their fall schedule. History says most of them will likely turn out to either be flops or mild successes, but there is usually one or two massive breakout hits. This past year, Elementary was a strong ratings giant and continued CBS's reign on top. I never watched Elementary because I'm allergic to gimmicked procedurals. I did watch a fair amount of the heavily hyped new series from last year. In my latest Collective Publishing, I look at 5 heavily hyped new series from this past season and analyze their freshman success (or failure).
