<I>Once Upon a Time</I> vs. <I>Grimm</i>: Will Either Fairytale Series Live Happily Ever After?

Shows with similar thematic elements that debut around the same time isn't exactly something new -- just think of 30 Rock and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Ghost Whisperer and Medium, Lipstick Jungle and Cashmere Mafia or even this season's Mad Men wannabes Pan Am and Playboy Club. Now Grimm is appearing less than a week after Once Upon a Time and on the surface, they have one major commonality: both take classic fairytale characters and storylines and attempt to bring them into the present day. But the similarities primarily end there. Will viewers look past the promos and magazine blurbs to realize that the programs are absolutely nothing alike? Or will they be forcibly lumped together forever? And more importantly, will either last more than a season or two?

Since we really do like the cast, we're hoping that they move on to bigger and better things when Cult is inevitably cancelled. Here are our suggestions.
