I've given up watching any of this shit. They're either gash (and trust me, that new Abrams show will be shit) or they get cancelled anyway.
If a show does really well and interests me, I'll probably start watching a couple of years down the line, when I know it's not going to get dicked about. The big networks are mostly run by idiots, you wanna stick with the premium ones, HBO, Showtime, FX etc. Not only do they make better shows, but they rarely cancel them.
PS That Abrams show is on NBC. NBC cancel EVERYTHING.
