What’s new on TV in 2014

TV_lionI’m back with all my favorite pics for 2014. For this blog I am only concentrating on my pics for what to watch as new shows pop up on the dial. So get ready and set your PVR’s.

Intelligence – Tuesday @ 9PM on CTV/CBS – Premiered: January 7th

For all those Lost fans that crave a little more Sawyer, Josh Holloway stars as a Cyber Commander. Think of having a computer chip in your head that connects to the internet at lightning speeds and is able to process information faster than any computer in the world. If you like action with a good bit of black ops then this show is for you.

Rake – Thursday @ 9:00PM on Global/FOX – Premiered: January 23rd

In the vein of House, Greg Kinnear plays an intellectual lawyer who just can’t lose, but in life he is a complete loser. Every day he battles with his bookie, lawyers, judges and even his ex-wife. This show could gain some nice momentum but don’t expect it to be House.

Mixology  – Wednesday @ 9PM on CTV/ABC – Premier Date: February 26th

10 singles doing ridiculous things for love. In this new sitcom, the entire season is based on one night in a bar and all the crazy things that happen. From the writers of the hangover, this quick witted single camera comedy is a must watch.

The 100 – Wednesday @ 9:00PM on CW – Premier Date: March 19th

Think of this show as Hunger Games meets Lord of the Flies. In a post apocalyptic future, humans are relegated to live in a space station that is starting degrade and must come back down to what is believed to be an uninhabitable earth. So, what do you do? You send all your juvenile delinquents down to see what earth now looks like.

Don’t worry if you missed any of these as you can access most on Optik On Demand from your set top box, mobile phone or tablet as long as you subscribe to the country’s best TV Service – Optik TV.

Stay tuned for more upcoming new shows such as About a Boy, Believe, Crisis, Resurrection and more.
