> Raines looks interesting, but I am concerned about the surrounding cast.



Don't be, they'll all be out of work within 3-4 weeks. Friday night is Death Slotting. The only reason the nets put anything on Fridays is because they want to kill it. If anything ever does at all well (like, say, Joan of Arcadia) they are utterly flabbergasted.

Anybody else think that ABC is dragging out Lost too long? They're going to drag out the story until everyone gets tired of it in a similar fashion as it did with Alias. Lost has been a great series, but let's not drag it out too long. In the end even Gillian was able to get off his island.

Where the heck is "Justice"? Of all the shows, I have thoroughly enjoyed "Shark", "Medium", "Criminal Minds", and "Justice". Of them all I enjoy "Medium" the most and "Justice" was an extremely close second. Does anyone have the inside scoop and know why it wasn't returned or when it might be back? I also need to know where I can find a missed episode. :O( Please, please, please, bring back JUSTICE!

Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but it didn't even have a first season...? Either way, there's too many Pussycat Dolls as it is. They don't really need to be searching for more.

Got to agree with Pallidine. TV Tome was no nonsense tv show information. Ever since the site became tv.com, I have to sift through article after article of processed network garbage. For example, I couldn't figure out when Scrubs was coming back, but I could find 115 articles on what was going on on the set of Greys Anatomy. This site used to be informative, now its like reading the E Network. Also, is Battlestar Gallactica really as good as everyone says. Im a nerd, but not a hugggge nerd, will I hate it?

This article is a joke. So much on shows that are actually coming back rather than actual replacements---- Typical of the TV.com crap since the buyout of TVTOME.

I caught the first four hours of 24. Looks to be a pretty good season ahead. I've completely lost interest in House. The writers must be on crack. Heroes is my current favorite. I doubt I'll be tuning in to The Sopranos. Enough already! Last season pretty much killed it for me. None of the sitcoms sound very appealing. I might check out The Black Donnellys but I don't think it will last very long.

I'm curious about In Case of Emergency...David Arquette fan, hope it does well for him.

Thrilled to see Jericho coming back. Not interested in Rules of Engagement, might be funny but doubt I will watch...because of David Spade. SOOOOOO glad that Friday Night Lights is getting more time. I didn't see anything about Studio 60. Can't wait for Crossing Jordan to come back. I was wondering what happened to it. Seems like it has been gone forever. Unfortunately, it comes on at the same time Battlestar does so it is going to be recorded.

Checked out Dirt when it premiered...interesting. Glad to see Psych coming back (funny show). Really looking forward to Dresden Files. This is the one that I have been anxious to see. I hope it lives up to expectations. (Embarrassed to say I'm not up on my reading but would love to check out the books the series is based on.) Thankfully since it will be on before Battlestar Gallactica, my Sundays will be saved. I would have turned the T.V. off (sacrilege) before I would have resorted to Reality Television...how do I hate thee!!!!Any news on Kyle XY? Read in one of the posts that it might be June? Was hoping for it sooner. Wondering about Eureka also...really like this show but didn't see anything in the other category about it coming back.

I've been waiting for well over a year for The Dresden Files, and I'm so glad that it's finally coming! Anyone who isn't sure about the series should pick up the first Jim Butcher novel Storm Front to get an idea what it'll be like.

If they stay true to the books (and it looks like they will because Jim Butcher has had a lot of positive things to say about the production) then this will be a series to watch! And being on the same night as Battlestar Galactica can only help.

I didn't even see Dresden Files under the Other section! I love Jim Butcher's series, and just bought the 8th book. So rooting for the show to make it, despite being on Sci-Fi.
