NBC's Fall 2007-2008 Lineup

mryan.jpgNBC might be in need of the most help this upcoming season. Last year they were touting the talents behind "Studio 60," "The Black Donnellys" and "Raines" -- only to can all three, and more. Let's assess the damage control...

New Shows
Bionic Woman: They can obviously rebuild it, but will it be better, stronger, or even faster?
Chuck: McG and a guy that produced "The O.C." have developed this sitcom-ish spy story about a computer geek who fights PC viruses by day and assassins and terriorists by night.
Heroes: Origins: If you can't beat 'em, clone 'em. This spin-off will introduce new characters -- as chosen by viewers through the "Heroes" Web site on
The I.T. Crowd: "The Soup" host Joel McHale stars in this British-based comedy about how IT geeks get their freak on when away from the PC world.
Journeyman: Billed as a "romantic mystery-drama," a newspaper reporter travels back in time to help people.
Life: After years of wrongful imprisonment, a detective (Damian Lewis) returns to the force. Adam Arkin also stars.
Lipstick Jungle: NBC's entry for the heir to "Sex and the City" has the blessing and book name from author Candace Bushnell, as well as Brooke Shields and Kim Raver.
The Singing Bee: This reality show asks contestants to accurately sing popular songs -- sometimes sans music.
World Moves: So you think you can dance, but couldn't get on "So You Think You Can Dance?" Try this knock-off, which asks dance teams to compete for a "global championship" and an international touring contract.

• 20 Good Years
• Andy Barker, P.I.
• The Black Donnellys
• Crossing Jordan
• Grease: You're the One That I Want
• Identity
• Kidnapped
• Raines
• The Real Wedding Crashers
• Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
• Thank God You're Here

I was hoping that NBC was going to "bring it" a little more next season -- mainly because I am selfish. Hopefully it's all about quality and not quantity. -- Rachel Cericola

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking--but in a more positive way: that NBC is more about quality than quantity. I mean they're clear favorites at the Emmys for Comedy and hopefully in Drama this year in the case of FNL. And I'm looking forward to -most- of their new shows. The Bionic Woman has the most potential, considering the same minds gave us the new Battlestar Galactica. And I've heard raves about Chuck. Most so far say the pilot is very funny and enjoyable and it sounds worth watching. Lipstick Jungle seems good, but a plausible disappointment if not done properly. Journeyman could be all I was too young to be interested in Quantam Leap when it was on air :P. Life doesn't excite me too much. And I actually haven't even heard of The I.T. Men. My newspaper forgot to mention it. Oh well, I just hope Joel Hale takes his shirt off before it gets the possible ax. I wouldn't invest much stock in Life and/or Journeyman at this point either.

I will not be tuning into NBC's fall line up. I was getting jazzed about NBC's come back when they pulled The Black Donnelly's after 6 episodes and forced myself and many,many fans to sit in front of our computers every Monday night and wait for NBC to finally remember to post the episode. TBD is a great drama..think The Godfather meets the Sopranos. If you haven't tuned in, go to and watch the episodes! You will be hooked.

Most of these shows just prove that creativity in entertainment is dead. Most of NBC's new shows are either remakes, spin-offs, or premised on previous shows. Bionic Woman? Let me guess, they will turn the respectable Bionic Woman of Lindsay Wagner fame into a slut. Journeyman? This was once called Quantum Leap, and its series finale was a cliff hanger. Why not just bring back QL and start of the latter's series end? The Singing Bee and World Moves? I believe these are called American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance on another network.

I LOVE Studio 60 -- they just had it on at a bad time on a bad night. Should have been on Thursday at 9:00 PM and it would have done well.

To think they had that many stars and good writers and could not AFFORD it a good night and time behooves me.

I like Crossing Jordan, not a favorite but in my top 10 shows. I will miss Bug.

I don't think they really needed to bring back Grease. The revival isn't going to last all that long. It's odd though, because a lot of those people were loads better than American Idol.

Ang: I think that show was supposed to be a one-shot deal. They already filled the parts... they wouldn't take them away! I guess if they come up with another show to fill, maybe they will bring it back at some point.

I don't think they should have canelled these shows-Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Thank God You're Here. Why????

The problem with the networks these days is that they don't give shows a chance. They go by ratings alone, if that was the case M*A*S*H wouldn't have stayed on the air for 11 seasons!

The Black Donnellys was a great show, action it had the class of the "Sporanos and the action of the God Father" I really enjoyed this show and they killed it after 6 episodes, and replaced it with Andy Barker PI. I mean seriously!

NBC has lost its touch, but they will have a whole slue of Law and Order knock offs!

i believe you shoud re air THE BLACK DONNELLYS, it was a really good show. NBC should have given more of a chance. Instead of the mess it has on now. I also believe the bionic woman was a good show also. Give shows a chance,PLEASE.
