It's hard to judge a TV show by its first episode. But every fall, when the networks march out their new fall shows, that's exactly what critics have to do. Inevitably, some promising shows fall off, and some not-at-all-promising shows get surprisingly good. Two months into the new season, I checked in on six of the more high-profile new series to see how they're faring. (Sorry, "New Normal" — I was wrong about you!)
