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?
