At this point, I’d need to check to see if we have any more premieres still waiting to launch for the season, but clearly we’ve run through the lot of it. And I’ve got to tell you, boys and girls and Hollywood, I am not impressed.
Having watched everything so far, we have one solid pleasant surprise in Ugly Betty (and even that feels like it will be a fleeting thing, not a show like My Name Is Earl or Boomtown where I see one and expect to stay with it forever.) There are a couple of watchable shows, The Class and the so-well-done-it’s-watchable-even-if-I’m-not-the-target Friday Night Lights. The watchable (but in a watching-the-gears-turn, the-train-ain’t-goin’-nowhere way) Studio 60. The this-has-the-hooks-in-it-to-become-watchable Brothers & Sisters and Six Degrees and Heroes… things that sit on the DVR because you know you might watch them, but it’s an effort to. The “please turn it around, Tina” 30 Rock. And then there is the stuff that fills schedules.
