Saving The Best of the Fall TV Season

This is the time of the TV season when networks must decide which of the new fall TV shows they'll keep, and which they'll cancel. And with the writers strike -- which could wipe out prime-time scripted series until spring, near the end of the TV season -- network execs must try to figure out which new shows are losers or keepers.

So here's my question: Which of the new fall shows are your new Must See TV? If you had to make a passionate plea to bring them back after the strike -- which could mean next fall -- which new shows are worth saving: Cane? Bionic Woman? Cavemen? Private Practice? Big Shots? Journeyman? Life? Pushing Daisies? The Reaper? Gossip Girl? K-Ville? Women's Murder Club? Samantha Who? Dirty Sexy Money? Any others? And which would you cancel immediately?

Chuck and Pushing Daisies

Everything else can be cancelled

I would like to see Pushing Daisies come back. I really like that show. It's quirky and fun.

Life is the only one I have watched for any length of time, and it is head and shoulders above Lt. Dan and CSI-NY.
I have heard good things about Chuck, I usually watch Everybody Hates Chris then, if anything.
None of the others have made much of an impression on me.

Being the TV addict that I am, I would love to see Chuck, Samantha Who, Life, Pushing Daisies, Private Practice, and The Reaper come back. Those have become not-miss shows for me. Others I like are Women's Murder Club, Cane, and Gossip Girl, but I'm not as invested in them as I am the other shows.

I really enjoy Carpoolers, Pushing Daisies, and Dirty Sexy Money.

Cavemen - gone.
Samantha Who? - a definite keeper
The rest - who cares?

I'm with anonymous (8:34) - keep Chuck and Pushing Daisies.

I watched Samantha Who for the first time this week and really enjoyed it. I want to see how the next few episodes go before I make a commitment.

Pushing Daisies
Dirty Sexy Money

Samantha Who? is good enough to save. What ever happened to that show THe Wedding Bells from last spring. Sorry to see that one go.

Pushing Daises, Dirty Sexy Money and Journeyman are the cream of the mentioned crop. The others can go...

I would keep Chuck and Reaper. Those are the only 2 new shows I watch.

Life is a good show. I just hope that 30 Rock gets some more viewers.

I would keep big bang, back to you, pushing daisies, reaper, kitchen nightmares.

I have a side question about the strike. The writers strike, and sooner or later production stops.
Do the production workers get strike pay fro their unions, or are they just unemployed until its over?

Chuck, Journeyman and Reaper.

Cane could be better.

I want to like Back To You. If it doesn't improve I'm removing it from my tivo as I did with Big Bang.

at 11/12/2007 1:16 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Chuck, Reaper and the Friday Night Fu.

Keep Big Bang Theory. Get rid of Cavemen.

Life, Big Shots, Bionic Woman, Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Dexter (best show out there right now!!!!)

Cavemen, Big Bang, Dirty Sexy Money and Carpoolers

On a separate note, this writers strike sucks! How in the world do studios expect us to get excited about their shows when they are screwing us right in front of our eyes. Pay these guys what they want and move on. I can not beleive that studios are willing to risk the millions in ad sales because of this. This is a joke!

Chuck by far is not only the best new show but it is the best show on TV PERIOD!
