From ‘Batman: The Wonder Years’ to the ‘fun-cedural’ genre and Katherine Heigl superspy, this may be the craziest season yet

You know how every year people complain network TV has hit the lowest of lows? That was before they gave us Selfie: The Sitcom or Katherine Heigl: Action Hero! That was before they invented the "fun-cedural." This fall is a historic boneyard for mind-blowingly bad new shows. But there are glimmers of light amid all the carnage – at least some of the terrible ones are comically terrible. The lack of fresh ideas is frightening. What does it mean that superhero comics are stealing all the TV thunder? And what does it mean that Selfie turns out to be one of the better sitcoms? Only that the networks have really hit the lowest of lows this time. Save us, Katherine Heigl.
