FanBoy and Kyle Predicted 10 Days in the Valley as First Cancelled

It is time for our annual predictions of upcoming ABC series. This year, FanBoy, Kyle, and Alex are joined by Marshal. Each person predicted if each new series will be a hit or miss (as defined by returning for a second season). They also shared their most anticipated comedy and drama as well as their pick for the first series to be cancelled. Not a lot of agreement this year as only one series was unanimous. Will Kyle once again reign supreme? Or will newcomer Marshal win his rookie season?
