The Fall 2012 TV season is now in full swing – but there’s just one thing missing. The hits? Where are they?

Fall 2011 wasn’t a sterling TV season but it did give birth to some key network shows. Once Upon A Time was an instant hit that stayed strong throughout its first season. Person Of Interest also opened big and interestingly grew in buzz and ratings as it neared its season 1 finale. 2 Broke Girls was a decent Monday night performer for CBS and ABC’s Revenge finally helped the network shake its Wednesday at 10pm curse. And Grimm was the little show that could, actually doing decent business in the Friday night dead zone.

Fast-forward 12 months and yikes – it’s not looking good!

As always there have been a batch of instant, out of the gate bombs: The Mob Doctor, Made In Jersey and Partners – all of which are not long for this world. After decent starts Go On and The New Normal are fading fast, as are fellow NBC sitcoms Animal Practice and Guys With Kids. And Ben And Kate and The Mindy Project have been killed in the Tuesday night comedy crossfire.
