    Navy NCIS:

Leading the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) team that operates outside of the military chain of command is Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), a highly skilled investigator and interrogator who is smart, tough and willing to bend the rules to get the job done. Working under Gibbs is Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), a former homicide detective who joined NCIS just a few years ago but who has instincts that come only from working on the streets. Joining them are Agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander), a tough former Secret Service agent who's gone head-to-head with Gibbs in the past, and forensics specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), a gifted scientist whose dark wit matches her goth-style hair and clothes. Assisting the team is medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum), who knows it all because he's seen it all. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents travel the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.

    Joan Of Arcadia

Tough but soft-hearted police chief Will Girardi (Mantegna) is new to the city of Arcadia and dreams of providing a safe haven for his family and community. An outbreak of serious crime in his idyllic new town challenges Girardi's desire for order, as do the ups and downs he faces with his family. Daughter Joan (Tamblyn), an average teenager, has begun acting a little strange. No one knows that it probably has something to do with the unusual way various people keep popping up, introducing themselves as God, and then giving her specific directions to do things, like get a job. The appearances are hard for her to believe, even more so as she never knows who's going to turn up next. One minute it's a cute boy her own age, the next it's the lunch lady. For now, she's keeping it all a secret. Rounding out the Girardi family is her mom, Helen (Steenburgen), her 15-year-old science geek brother, Luke (Michael Welch), and her older brother, Kevin (Jason Ritter), a former high school sports star who is in a wheelchair as a result of a car accident. Unsure of what God wants, and if she's even sane, Joan tentatively begins to follow God's cryptic directives, all the while trying to retain a "normal" teen-aged existence.

    Two and a Half Men

Charlie Harper (Sheen) savors his swinging single status and his lucrative job as the writer of popular jingles, but his self-indulgent lifestyle is about to come to an end when his about-to-be-divorced younger brother Alan (Cryer) and Alan's 10-year-old son, Jake (Angus T. Jones, "Bringing Down the House"), move into his beach-front home. As Alan, an uptight chiropractor, comes to terms with being dumped by his wife, Judith (Marin Hinkle, "Once and Again"), he gets little compassion from his self-absorbed brother. Soon, however, polar opposites Charlie and Alan discover that they have more in common than they think: they both love Jake and want what's best for him. The brothers agree to create a home for Jake at Charlie's, despite the realization that they'll likely drive each other crazy in the process.

    Cold Case Files

Where previously she had used her instinctive understanding of the criminal mind to crack current murder cases, this smart and driven detective is now intrigued by new challenges: interrogating witnesses to old crimes whose lives and circumstances have since changed, making use of today's new science and finding fresh clues to cases once thought to be unsolvable. Lilly is also prepared for the consequences, namely that her work will open old wounds and may lead suspects to commit new crimes. When she hits a dead end, Lilly seeks advice from her respected mentor, Lt. Tom Stillman (John Finn). Also on the team is Det. Will Jeffries (Thom Barry), who's been around long enough to know where all the bodies are buried; Det. Chris Lassing (Justin Chambers), Lilly's handsome, straight-ahead partner, and Det. Ronnie Vera (Jeremy Ratchford), a tough cop who's considered the go-to guy for getting a confession. Lilly sees her new assignment as a turning point in her career, and she makes it her business to ensure that no victim is ever forgotten.

Hank Shaw (Quaid), the police captain, Garrett Shaw (Lynch), the mayor, and Waylon Shaw (Penn), unemployed, were born and raised in Poland and are former high school hockey stars. Now, as grown men, they are struggling with big city problems. On the job, Hank is known for his explosive personality and tendency to communicate with his fists, while his home life is far from wild with his unhappy wife, Dottie (Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award-winner Mare Winningham). Garrett, the town's pillar of strength, finds his own world beginning to crumble when he's forced to hide a secret from his wife, Helen (Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Elizabeth McGovern), that could jeopardize his marriage and his relationship with his daughter, Monica (Megan Henning). Waylon, out of work and feeling a little paranoid, is convinced that his wife, Julie (Ann Cusack, "Stigmata"), is having an affair. When Waylon enlists him to help, Hank assigns outspoken police officer Francine Hill (Cleo King, "Boston Public") to spy on Julie's potential suitor. Waylon also learns that his teenage daughter, Katie (Angela Goethals), is sleeping with her high school teacher. As the brothers confront personal and professional dilemmas, the one constant in their lives is their family bond and their unconditional love for each other.

    The Handler

    Quote Originally Posted by CBS Site

From underground prostitution rings and drug traffickers to the worlds of high-tech and high finance, it's a behind-the-scenes look at how Joe's well-schooled operatives infiltrate and tackle them all. Joe is the ultimate "puppet-master" who also interfaces with government and local law enforcement agencies that come to him for help with both long-term and quick sting operations. He knows from personal experience that going undercover is an all-or-nothing job. Any lapse in "character" can mean the difference between life and death for his operatives, and Joe goes to great lengths to make sure his people are properly prepared, mentally and physically. He tirelessly directs a revolving cast of characters, including Lily (Anna Belknap, "Deadline"), a wide-eyed rookie undercover agent; Darnell (Hill Harper, "City of Angels"), the ambitious veteran; Heather (Lola Glaudini, "The Sopranos"), an enthusiastic transfer; and Marcy (Tanya Wright, "24"), Joe's trustworthy assistant and sole confidante. They all walk a fine line between fighting crimes and committing them, all the while looking out for each other.

    I like Joe Pantoliano, but the commercials for The Handler do nothing for me... I have no desire to see it.

    I am looking forward to Joan Of Arcadia, and as long as it's not too preachy I have a feeling I will like it.

    Yeah, Joan of Arcadia looks pretty good. I hope though, that they have more in store for us than just trying to figure out who's gonna be God next. If that's the case, it could get pretty boring after the newness wears off.

    I'll be watching on Friday's this Fall Joan of Arcadia. The reason is Amber Tamblyn. I love Amber and she rocked General Hospital's world.

    I remember watching Amber on General Hospital, and she played the BEST Emily Quartermaine EVER!!!!

    Now in 2003 on GH, the recast of Emily Quartermaine is played by Natalia Livingston.
