I put "depends on the show".

I rarely start watching a show right when it first comes out. I usually (and especially when the IMDB boards still existed) start watching a show because of word of mouth, reading articles, etc. If I hear it's a good show, or that it grows into a good show, I'll give it more time.

Example: The Big Bang Theory. The pilot, to me, really wasn't that funny. That show really grew on me over time.

OTOH, if I find a show truly grating, I won't give it a shot past the pilot.

Example: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I just found it extremely annoying from the get-go, and couldn't imagine it significantly breaking off from that.
