Harper's Island to slay in April

Newsflash: CBS has a new show coming out soon...and it's not a crime procedural. The network known for NCIS, CSI, and The Mentalist is trying something a little different in Harper's Island, and now we finally know when we'll be able to see if it pays off.

Harper's Island, a serialized whodunit set on an island in the Pacific Northwest, will take its first bow on Thursday, April 9, at 10 p.m. Instead of being about an acronym-titled team of crime solvers, this CBS show will be about a wedding party dealing with a succession of murders and the attempt to figure out who the killer is. Likely tagline: "The murderer...could be one of them!"

More closely rooted in CBS' bread and butter is Flashpoint, which returns Friday, January 9, at 9 p.m. The show is based on a Canadian task force that deals with a variety of messy situations.

CBS two long-running reality programs, Survivor and The Amazing Race, have set their returns for February 12 and February 15, respectively.

Ashton Kutcher is at it again, this time with Game Show in My Head, which airs Saturday nights at 8 p.m. starting on January 3. The competition features regular people performing embarrassing stunts while a hidden camera catches all the hilarity.

Oh God... when Survivor premiered, Santana was at the top of the charts with "Maria Maria", Aaliyah was still alive and one of my favorite shows was Felicity. Geez, I'm old. LOL

ok lets start with Harper’s island bay watch for the 00 with a bit of who done it a group of have naked people running around trying to find out who is killing the gests , hold another angle its 24 for the common man no running around with ear peaces or finding a boom under your car and as allot of you know there is no way that a wedding party is going to last more than a long weekend because after that you do have the right to kill the guests so there for I could be wrong we might have to call it 72 well we will have to weight and see.
Now I did watch allot of the Flashpoint shows and they were really good my only little quam is the beginning showing us what’s going to happen and then jumping back to get the story it felt a bit like fox new and GWB saying the war was over in 2005 which I think was supposed to be pre recorded for when it really did happen just incase he was no longer in power or alive.
Survivor I just love it want to be on it would like to do a world survivor having people from the usa.canada the 2 down under england,ireland ,scotland and wales. so say no more.
Ashton Kutcher its getting old and to be honest I just want to see one back fire and some big redneck come looking for you boy now that would be funny a bit of body realignment the odd broken rib nothing that would kill just course a limp.

With ABC becoming the new FOX (and more recently CBS) in cancelling all of my favorite shows, these ones won't be watched on my TV. Sorry ABC, you asked for it.

Glad Flashpoint is returning. Best new show of 2008 and one of the finest dramas on television.

I'm not watching any new shows on any network after the heartbreaking turn that ABC did in cancelling Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone. :-(

Not a big fan of any of these. I may take a look at Harper's Island but I doubt it will be around for long.

I'm glad Flashpoint is returning and I hope it will do well with the competition. I also watch Survivor and Amazing Race and am happy to see them return. I don't plan to watch Harper's Island.
