fallschedule2006_header.jpg

The networks have announced their plans for this year's fall schedule, and it's shaping up to be a doozy! Not only are we waiting for scores of new shows to debut, but we're also looking forward to the birth of a brand new network. In addition to exciting premieres like Ugly Betty and Jericho, we'll be glad to welcome old favorites like 7th Heaven and Law & Order back to our living rooms. So grab a pen and calendar, draw up a loose outline of your viewing future, and then go shopping for enough canned goods to last you through the fall--because you won't want to leave your TV for a moment!
