Before the Fall - Part 1

Wow, I sure know how to get your attention now, just go for a joke that takes a cheap shot at television. For the record, I'm a huge fan of Heroes, ER, Medium, all the L&O shows, Scrubs, 30 Rock, and My Name is Earl, and I'm actually looking forward to checking out several of NBC's new fall shows, specifically Journeyman, The Bionic Woman (which co-stars my old buddy Miguel Ferrer), Life, and Chuck. Lipstick Jungle and Singing Bee, not so much, but one never knows.

For those of you interested in such things, here's NBC's current Fall schedule. Write it down in pencil. You know it's gonna change before September.

I'll add the futon critic's upfront guide as another link for following the hot upfront action.

I'm actually quite looking forward to The Bionic Woman, given the names involved. But my two most-anticipated shows are probably going to be ABC's Pushing Daisies (alas, looks like Heroes is going to lose Bryan Fuller), and Fox's (why did it have to be Fox?) pickup of Amy Sherman-Palladino's The Return of Jezebel James.

Wonder how NBC's going to handle the West Coast with Sunday Night Football; two games, one for each coast each starting at 8, or one game starting at 5 on the West Coast.
