The premise of the city-bred teen being uprooted to the suburbs is well-worn territory by this point, so most of the stranger-in-a-strange-land gags—Identically manicured lawns! Spray-tan housewives! Minivans!—should fall flat. ABC's freshman hit Suburgatory counteracts this with a super-talented cast and one of the best father-daughter relationships on the air.

In particular, lead Jane Levy is a real find; her dry-humored performance was on point before the series was. After attaining a moderate following last season, the Modern Family lead-in this year should take the Suburgatory all the way.
