Are you kidding me? Abc is the BEST network with 2 of the greatest shows on earth, Desperate Housewives and Lost. I also like Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and look forward to Brothers & sisters, private practice and Cavemen.

Hmm maybe Womens Murder Club will give a nostalgic Murder She Wrote kinda feel.

Oh, you people are kidding me aren't you?

Everyone one of you better watch Pushing Dasies, which is without doubt one of the best shows ever previewed. If you don't think that the cast and crew of Pushing Dasies at least, for the love of all humanity, watch it for the cute dog and the pretty people.

The only shows I have ever seen make it on Fridays and not get cancelled are the ones on the Sci-fi channel. I do believe 20/20 would have a better chance in a later time slot, but I wonder if the other two even have a chance at making it period. I'm just going to wait for Lost and October Road.

I'm particularly looking forward to Private Practice. Addison is a strong character and I think Kate Walsh is able to have a lead role. Only for that I'll watch, because I am not sure yet about the series in general. Yet I'll miss a lot her interaction with Karev.

"Not to mention Womens Murder Club it is in a bad timeslot."



Actually Women's Murder Club has not been placed in a bad spot. CBS's legal drama, Close to Home, which continually won that time spot, was cancelled this year and featured two female leads. And as more older people watch television on Friday nights and women will be looking for new shows with female leads, Women's Murder Club will be sure to pull in at least 9-10 million as I doubt the older population will be interested in Moonlight, which CBS has airing at this time.

Can't wait for the new Boston Legal and Dancing with the Stars but does anyone know when Bones starts back up?

Why not but some new shows on besides DWTS on 3 times a week. I'm ready for ugly betty and Samantha who? Didn't realize they changed the name.

October Road will be, just like Lost, a mid-season replacement, but it is renewed for a second season.

If you want lost, oct. road, boston legal time slots and news check the source itself, abc.com already has BL for same time slot, nothings taking it's place. They also split the sch. so you can see what will be in the time slot for fall and spring. With the exception of Lost, because that's pending the success/failure of the 3 new shows on wed. night.



Anyway, how sad about Men In Trees. CBS owns that night, esp. with that time lot with Numb3rs. And now NBC with Friday Night LIghts (so good), so I hated the news of FNL moving against #'s, but now Men in trees, too. With the announcement of only spring Lost, I was sad because Wed. would suck, but Private practice being on is cool, and pushing daisies looks awesome!

I don't think that Cashmere Mafia stands a chance competing against House. I think that the 10 PM time slot would be better for the show. I think the show sounds intersting. I hope that ABC will give Boston Legal good timeslot on Saturday night. BL is a well written show that has merited a decent timeslot since it aired. Then again, perhaps BL will be a midseason replacement.

Kinda worried about "Men in Trees". They push it to one of the worst time slot of the week . . :(

It's a great show and deserves better.

My Favourite channel with top shows like Desperate Housewives, Lost, Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty. I also like Brothers and sisters. I can't wait for Private Practice and Caveman. Lost will start in 2008 but I wish they told us when (Feb?).

For me its Big Shots this fall, Eli Stone Mid-Season, and returning Lost & Brothers & Sisters.

For myself, the most commercial lineup on TV. Horribly hip to that lowest common denominator.

I myself look forward to desperate housewives, grey's anatomy, dirrty sexy money and cashmere mafia.
although big shots could be nice too.

I really like the new shows that will aired this fall. I am looking forward to see Cashmere Mafia and Pushing Daisies. Keep your mind positive people and no matter where the shows will aired it should be watch or taped

They totally switched the lineup on Fridays :(. Men in trees at 9pm? It is going to get cancelled for sure now :(. Not to mention Womens Murder Club it is in a bad timeslot. I would Change 20/20 to Fridays at 9:00pm at 8:00 Big shots 7:00 Men in trees. Womens Murder club would move to thursdays after Greys.

People, stop being so PARANOID. Lost, just like October Road, returns in January. It's mid-season and there are no official premiere dates yet. They will be announced sometime November. Geez.

SO I guess October Road is not coming back ... I really liked that show
