10 New Shows We're Worried About After Upfronts 2012
'Elementary,' 'The Neighbors' and 'Mob Doctor' are among the shows that have us on edge
'Made in Jersey'
"Made in Jersey" (CBS)
Fridays at 9 p.m.
Why we're worried: So many fish-out-of-water legal cliches in one brief cutdown! And as much as we love Janet Montgomery, we wonder why a show called "Made in Jersey" couldn't find an actress who was... you know... born or raised in New Jersey, rather than one who appears to be lifting her entire personality from "My Cousin Vinnie." Plus, when you pair the potentially hammy Montgomery with the inevitably hammy Donna Murphy the results can't possibly be kosher.
Why it could still end up OK: If Montgomery merely started off broad, but hones her character and performance, she absolutely has the chops to carry her own series.
