Sleepy Hollow - There's enough good in it to keep me watching, but it's opposite some sitcoms I like.

Mom - One of said sitcoms. Not bad. It's on after 2 Broke Girls, so like, no reason not to grab it. On the other hand, if Sleepy Hollow gets better, I'd drop it without a second thought. (And watch 2 Broke Girls some other way.)

The Goldbergs - Bad. Horrible. It's got annoying narration a la The Wonder Years and the rest is just people yelling at each other.

Lucky 7 - Potentially interesting. I'll have to see where it goes. It has no skiffy content. And despite one of the characters looking kinda like the gay guy from Warehouse 13, it's not actually him.

Survivor - I was excited to see Rupert. And yet he may not last much longer. I was anti-excited to see the bigoted, racist, ableist, classist gay guy who is the worst guy on that show ever and they shouldn't have brought him back in a million years and how did he ever manage to get a fiance? And OH EM GEE YOU GUYS but watching it on cbs.com is the most annoying thing ever! There's like 4-5 commercials in every normal commercial break. I only needed to watch the last half hour (because America's Got Talent finale was on), and of course the last half hour is packed with the most commercials. Fox.com running Sleepy Hollow commercials IN THE MIDDLE OF SLEEPY HOLLOW was a much more enjoyable experience in comparison.

Oh yea. SHIELD - I found it boring. I found the characters boring. It'd better get good fast.

I watched the first ten minutes of this. Then I left. I concur with your assessment. All I saw was "people yelling at each other (over pointless crap), gender stereotypes, and let's talk about breasts."

10 minutes was about all I needed to! Though I did see it through. It did not improve. The yelling versus regular dialog ratio may've actually gone up.

Yea, the comedies have been pretty hit or miss for me so far. Goldbergs, Dads, Back in the Game, and We Are Men are all ones I either barely made it through one episode of or didn't even finish the first episode of. Moms I haven't caught yet, but I'm digging Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Trophy Wife, and The Michael J. Fox Show. Unsure of Crazy Ones...

Sleepy Hollow is mostly amazing to me, though! Have you seen how Orlando Jones has been interacting with the fandom? It's hilarious.

Shield I like a lot, too. I think Joss Whedon has a history of kind of shaky pilot episodes of good series, though. And I know some people thought it was boring, but I was so delighted with all of the in-movie references and seeing how the series was being set-up for more later on down the road.

I never drop an sf/f show based on the pilot, but its days are numbered!
Sitcoms on the other hand.. they're gone. :)
I heard Trophy Wife was worth checking out, but I haven't yet.
