Well last year it was a huge influx of Medical programs, shows etc. So many fell to the wayside, (Trauma, Mercy, Three Rivers, Miami Medical) and a few hung on Nurse Jackie (my personal favorite).
This upcoming fall season is set to chill you to the bone! Or so they say.
Hawaii Five-O (CBS)
Another try for Alex O'Loughlin this time as Steve McGarrett with Scott Caan (James Caan's son) as Dano. LOST's Jin (Daniel Dae Kim)and Battlestar Galactica's Boomer (Grace Park)round out the cast.
The Gates (ABC)
Definitely one succubus too many?!?!?! The show that has no BITE!
Dreadful! What a waste of airtime! 24's Carlos Bernard (Almeida) can't even save this one, poor David James Elliott and Virginia Madsen stuck in such crap. "The Riches" it ain't.

So we'll just have to see how things play out so far, it's up in the air. I think I'm sticking with the old shows the new stuff looks so dreary and disappointing.
I miss Boston Legal, I miss LOST, I miss 24.
