Welcome to Part 2 of our critics roundtable debate, all about the best new dramas of the upcoming 2011-2012 TV season. Which new shows made the list? You'll have to watch and see ...

Here's a little backstory: during the recent Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour, I gathered a group of my fellow critics and turned on the cameras while we talked all about the best and worst of fall TV.

Fall TV Critics Roundtable: Best New Comedy

I've split our chat into five insightful videos, and we'll be posting a new one here on AOL TV everyday this week -- best new comedy and best new drama (watch both below), worst new show (Wednesday), star we're happiest to see on TV (Thursday) and returning show we're most excited for (Friday) -- so keep checking back for more.

Right now, join me and HitFix.com's Alan Sepinwall, Melanie McFarland from IMDb TV, Damian Holbrook of TV Guide Magazine and AOL TV's own Mo Ryan to get our honest take on today's topic: Best new drama.

Tell us: Which new drama are you most excited for?

I am only excited for Awake, as it is looking very thought-provoking, but as Alan put it, it's the question of whether there is a series in there. I'd go even so far and say the same thing about Smash, but they will at least have enough material for one or two seasons. All in all, this looks like a very disappointing season on the drama side, but the networks haven't really nailed that genre for a few years now, if you exlucde a few exceptions (or quickly canned shows like Pushing Daisies).
