NBC is out with its fall schedule
, and there are few surprises. Gone are "Studio 60" and "Crossing Jordan"; staying are the Thursday night comedies and "Friday Night Lights." (And "Law & Order,"
but that was never really in doubt, right?)
As anyone who regularly subjects him or herself to the annoyance of this blog knows, I had very mixed feelings
about "Studio 60." I found it incredibly disappointing and called for its cancellation
, but didn't think it was completely unsalvageable (and there were countless people with better ideas than I had). But NBC decided to throw in the towel. In "Studio 60's" place will be "Journeyman," a perhaps unfortunate name for a show about a time-traveling journalist. (It's obviously a better segue out of "Heroes," given the subject matter.)
Elsewhere on the fall schedule is a remake of "The Bionic Woman" and Brooke Shields starring in "Lipstick Jungle."
Given the obvious disgust many blog respondents have for the broadcast networks
-- and knowing that it's almost impossible to know a show from a capsule description -- did NBC do well? Will you sample the new shows? Or will you be spending more time watching cable, renting movies or reading books?
