Timeslot Showdown: The Secret Circle vs. Person of Interest

at . Comments

From their premise to their target audience, The Secret Circle and Person of Interest share little in common.

One is a supernatural-based drama that hopes to attract fans of The Vampire Diaries, while the other is a high-tech crime series that airs on the network with the oldest demographic on television.

But both will air at 9 p.m. on Thursdays this fall - and both look pretty darn interesting to the TV Fanatic staff.

In this DVR/Internet age, viewers rarely need to actually choose between programs. But they do often give one priority over the other.

Which of these two potential hits will you be watching live on Thursdays?

I watched both. Person of Interest was definitely a lot more polished than the juvenile-like Secret Circle. I do like both though, but I expected something a bit better like Charmed was, when watching Secret Circle. Person of Interest was paced better, filmed better, Caviezel actually is talented, most people just know him from one movie. Oh well.


I will definetly be watching Secret Circle.


I can't wait to see the Secret Circle. I love Gale Harold. He is the sexiest, most beautiful man on TV and he will make a great witch!


Since, Thomas Dekker, Britt Robertson, and Shelley Henning will be in this show, I am definitely watching it. Plus I really loved the books. I don't mind that much that Diana isn't blond, because I absolutely loved Shelley on Days of Our Lives. She's a fantastic actress, and Diana is my favorite character (well and Nick), and I am sure she will do Diana justice :)


I'll be watching the Secret Circle. I love Gale Harold and I can't wait to see him play evil. He is an amazing actor with the most beautifully expressive face.


I'll watch The Secret Circle, largely for Gale Harold, who is fantastic in the trailer. I long ago decided that, for all his good looks, Jim Caviezel is an actor of extremely small abilities.


secret circle and that is mainly cause I am a phoebe tonkin fan.


The secret circle hands down... But maturer people (who are in abundance) will watch person of interest.

Cassie: Are you doing this?
Adam: We are.
