Depending on how you feel about television, the conference that’s wrapping up in Pasadena this week is either your dream or your nightmare. TV writers and critics from all over the country have been camped out in ballrooms watching hours and hours of new shows, meeting with stars, writers and executives, all for The Television Critics Association’s winter press tour.

While smaller cable and online channels like Sundance, Netflix and blip made their showing--impressing some of the critics with edgy new offerings and mini series--a big focus at TCA is on the networks. Specifically, whether they’re able to create exciting new content and get the ratings to support those shows.  

If you’ve been keeping close tabs on TV’s midseason, what are you most excited for? And what more do ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox have to do get you to tune in?  

Guest:

Alyssa Rosenberg, pop culture blogger for ThinkProgress, and correspondent for TheAtlantic.

Brian Lowry, Chief TV critic for Variety
