Network fall schedules

    Did they officially cancel the Apprentice? I thought they had signed for at least two more seasons. I figured it wouldn't have been brought back until January, and they could probably just put it in one of the slots where one of their new shows inevitably tanks.

    I wonder how much an influence Battlestar Galactica was on NBC getting Bionic Woman on the air. From the video preview on NBC.com, it looks like a darker show than the original, just like Battlestar Galactica. There was also a pretty strong backlash against the remake in that case as well, especially word got out that Starbuck would be a woman.

    I doubt it'll work, but it seems they are following the pattern that worked.

    Clearly, the only prerequisite for being a network exec is complete retardation.

    No wonder TV writers are so bitter.

    You ain't kidding. I'm STILL pissed about the great Boomtown getting bounced, and that was a few years ago.

    How about Freaks and Geeks?

    All the networks Cleveland Steam creativity, but NBC is by far the worst offender: Freaks and Geeks, the criminally mistreated Scrubs, Studio 60. Fuck a buncha peacocks.

    America's Funniest Home Videos is still around? And what did Men in Trees do to get bumped to Friday?

    Here's CBS.

    America's Most Watched NetworkTM is making the same mistakes that NBC did before its free-fall. America's Most Watched NetworkTM has not cultivated new hits to in preparation for when its heavy hitters show their age.

    It's good to see a little variety in the new series, but if people tire of the crime drama, America's Most Watched NetworkTM is in trouble.

    However, at least America's Most Watched NetworkTM doesn't have to load up with dumb-ass reality shows. America's Most Watched NetworkTM has my respect for that.

    Close to Home didn't make it on CBS, huh? That stinks! Glad to see the return of Shark, though.

    At least they kept How I Met Your Mother. Now if they would keep Two and a Half Men at 8:30 instead of 9 like they did this week so I could see that and Heroes, I'd be even happier.

    Why would CBS break up Case/Trace? And it's good to see Shark get a chance on a better night.

    I realize it's spelled differently but when I saw "Cane" on Tuesday night, my first thought was "They're doing a spinoff of CSI:Miami on David Caruso's character!?!"

    Obviously <sunglasses on> I was mistaken.

    The premise of Kid Nation is ridiculous.

    Moonlight... hey, CBS! Glad to see you're giving Forever Knight another chance, but couldn't you have cast Geraint Wyn Davies in the role for cryin' out loud?

    Viva Laughlin sounds interesting... it isn't Cop Rock. I've seen the Viva Blackpool premise it's based on, but my worry is CBS screws up a BBC show.

    Cane sounds like a good show, but putting it opposite Boston Legal and SVU isn't smart.

    I'd have put Big Bang Theory after Two and a Half Men, but that's just me. :)
