Once Upon A Time up for a People's Choice Award. They are up for Best New Drama; Jane Espenson and Andrew Chambliss are on staff and Harry Groener and Emma Caulfield are set to guest. Alternately, you could make Jane cry and vote for Grimm (and David Greenwalt).

Or make both cry and vote for Sarah Michelle Gellar's Ringer!

(I did vote for Once Upon a Time, however, since I think it's the best of the three so far. And I wrote a blog post talking about the nominees while mentioning many of the Whedonverse connections.)
No matter what, this will end in tears.
Well, Once Upon a Time is better (for now). Will be interesting to see where they both go.
Or make both cry and vote for Sarah Michelle Gellar's Ringer!


That would make everyone cry, if you ask me. I tried, SMG(P)!
I like Grimm better than the others.
I voted for Ringer, cause I like it best of the three. Though OAAT is sort of growing on me.
Well, I have the last two episodes of RINGER on my DVR and absolutely no desire to watch them. It and TERRA NOVA are my two biggest TV disappointments this fall.

GRIMM got terrible reviews prior to its broadcast, but I have to say I don't dislike it. Going to stick with it for now. Don't love it, but it has potential.

Am really enjoying ONCE UPON A TIME so far (though I still think Bill Willingham should sue them).

But there is absolutely no question about the best new show of the fall: HOMELAND. It is hands down my favorite show currently running (it gets competition in the spring from GAME OF THRONES, JUSTIFIED, and MAD MEN and next summer from BREAKING BAD). And I would love to see Morena Baccarin get an Emmy nom for Best Supporting Actress. I feel so great for her after that horror story of a show, V., where she was a repulsive alien lizard queen.
I couldn't get past the second episode of Grimm, I was just so bored by it. The lead actor is the definition of wooden.

OUAT is alright, but I wish they'd scale back the cheese factor by about 92%, as well as giving it more humour. Also get rid of the annoying kid.

Ringer. Ummm...
I haven't tried "Once Upon a Time" yet, but I've enjoyed "Grimm" so far. The lead sounds so disturbingly like Brandon Routh to me. And you can tell the show's Buffyverse influence for the way that the writers are so clearly in love with Nick's unwilling Blutbad partner Monroe.

I'm actually enjoying "Ringer" for all of its over the top silliness.
OUAT is very promising. The other two leave me cold, sadly.

I almost agree with all, only not seeing MM and BB, and voting in this pool for The Secret Circle, which isn't exactly very good, but has some good turns in the story.

Also, in the TV Drama Avtor category, David Boreanaz and Nathan Fillion are nominated, Neal Patrick in the Comedy and Castle and Bones in Tv Crime Drama.
These are sooooo easy to bot.
Enjoying Once Upon a Time; but, voted for Ringer. "Once" is the highest rated new drama of the 2011 season and already has a full season order. Ringer is the third highest rated show for the CW with under 2 million viewers. Ringer's been steadily improving with each episode and it definitely has enough twists to keep a viewer interested. It's the People's Choice Awards and a popularity contest, so I am voting for the underdog.
Suburgatory with Alan Tudyk is also up for Favorite New TV Comedy.
