For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • that is one pretty awful line up with a lot of new shows that could turn out to be stinkers.

    too bad lost got renewed.

  • change your screen name to ‘i hate lost’ 🙂

    Grey’s Anatomy against what is most likely going to be CSI on CBS and the biggest new show on NBC’s line up, Studio 60…? I hope the writers keep it awesome enough for fans to tune in, and that they don’t decide to get all “desperate housewives” by promising big things and letting the show turn into a mockery of the show it’s trying to be… while i’m on the subject – i don’t hate desperate housewives, but i am holding firmly to the belief that it is NOT a comedy and should be entered into the drama categories for awards…one funny moment per 60 minute show does not a comedy make!

  • Dana

    Why does ABC have to put Grey’s on Thurs? Why does TV networks have to do this to me every year! I can watch two shows a night AND my roommate insists on continuing to watch The OC. So hopefully they put that in a new slot! I am not giving up Grey’s and WILL NOT not watch Studo 60. I was so excited for upfronts, with this and the everwood news, I don’t even want to know what will happen next.

  • Common Sense

    I was surprised ABC had the guts to move Grey’s to Thursday….but it could turn out to be a brilliant move. They’ve been a non-player on the key night for years, and Grey’s audience WILL follow it (although probably to DVR for many). When you have a product that can put a dent in the CSI monster, you use it.

    On the other hand: 15 new shows this season for ABC (ten now, five mid-season)?? That’s pathetic, and the honchos will be LONGING for the loyal “Invasion” viewers once they see the ho-hum neglect their new lineup produces. People are too busy and already have too many TV “commitments” to even begin to get involved with so many new series.

  • I too was surprised with the Grey’s move.. but I think it’s a good one. Why not spread the wealth. I guess we won’t know if they were to quick to pull INVASION until the season starts. But it does seem like an awful lot of NEW shows on ABC….. viewers won’t be able to watch everything!
