    Re: Fall 2007-08 Season

    I am completely upset that "Studio 60" was dumped. I was really digging that show. Ah well, so is life.

    From what I read, they're keeping it on the shelf. They have not announced a time or place where it will come back, nor do I believe they've filmed it. But it was mentioned as one they're holding on to.

    ABC's Schedule

    ABC UNVEILS 2007-08 PRIMETIME SCHEDULE

    Seven New Dramas, Four New Comedies and One New Alternative Series Will Join a Slate of Returning Shows

    New Series Include "Big Shots," "Carpoolers," "Cashmere Mafia," "Cavemen," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Eli Stone," "Miss/Guided," "Private Practice," "Pushing Daisies," "Sam I Am" and "Women's Murder Club"

    New Alternative Series "Oprah's Big Give" Slated to Debut

    Returning Series Include Previously Announced "Brothers & Sisters," "MEN IN TREES," "Ugly Betty," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost," "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Dancing with the Stars," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "The Bachelor," "Supernanny," "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "Wife Swap"

    Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Entertainment, today outlined ABC's plans for next season and unveiled the network's 2007-08 fall schedule before a crowd of ABC affiliates and representatives of the advertising and media communities at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall.

    Scheduled to debut next season are four new comedy series: "Carpoolers," "Cavemen," "Miss/Guided" and "Sam I Am"; along with seven new drama series: "Big Shots," "Cashmere Mafia," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Eli Stone," "Private Practice," "Pushing Daisies" and "Women's Murder Club." Alternative series "Oprah's Big Give" is also slated to debut.

    In addition to the new series, ABC previously announced season renewals for "Brothers & Sisters," "MEN IN TREES," "Ugly Betty," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost," "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Dancing with the Stars," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "The Bachelor," "Supernanny," "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "Wife Swap."

    "October Road" and "Notes from the Underbelly" will return for second seasons as well.

    "We're heading into the new season with a strong lineup of returning shows that we've developed and nurtured over the past few years," said McPherson. "That solid foundation will help us launch an exciting development slate as we continue our forward momentum this fall. We're dedicated to working hard week after week to deliver the best stories and most memorable characters on TV."

    During the 2006-07 TV Season, ABC's first season in decades without "Monday Night Football," the network solidified its dominance with women and in all upscale measures. And with the addition of "Ugly Betty," "Brothers & Sisters," "October Road" and "MEN IN TREES," ABC has added a new generation of broad-appealing, young, accessible dramas to its roster. ABC is the #1 network with Women 18-34 and Women 18-49, and is currently in second place for the season among Adults 18-49, leading both NFL-fueled CBS (with "Super Bowl 2007") and NBC (with "Sunday Night Football").

    Excluding sports from the mix this season (to account for the loss of "Monday Night Football," the 2006 "Super Bowl" and the Bowl Championship series) ABC is the No. 2 network to Fox among Adults 18-49. The network airs 7 of the Top 20 TV series in the key young adult sales demographic. ABC retained 99% of its Total Viewers, 100% of its Adult 18-34 audience and 95% of its Adult 18-49 audience year to year in the "non-sports" averages. Additionally, ABC marked its second straight season as the No. 1 television network among advertiser-prized upscale, high-income Adults 18-49 (with/$100K+ annual income). And ABC is the only network whose May Sweep performance is up from a year ago.

    As previously announced, "Saturday Night College Football" will return for a second season on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 (8:00 p.m., ET).

    Editors please note: Shows picked up but not listed on the schedule will debut later in the 2007-08 season. Photographs are available on www.abcmedianet.com.

The absurdly wealthy Darlings of New York have asked him to take over his father's job as their personal lawyer, but the money that will allow him the freedom to be an altruistic do-gooder is only part of the picture.

But after experiencing a series of odd hallucinations, Eli seeks to find a deeper meaning to life while trying not to lose his job and destroy his relationship with the bosses' daughter.

    From Bryan Fuller ("Heroes") and Barry Sonnenfeld ("Men in Black") comes an unprecedented blend of romance, crime procedural and high-concept fantasy in a forensic fairytale about a young man with a very special gift. Once upon a time, a mild-mannered boy named Ned realized he could touch dead things and bring them back to life. Grown-up Ned puts his ability to good use, not only touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavor, but working with an investigator to crack murder cases by asking the deceased to name their killers. But the tale gets complicated, as all tales do, when Ned brings his childhood sweetheart, Chuck, back from the dead and keeps her alive. Chuck encourages him to use his power to help others, instead of merely solving mysteries and collecting the rewards.

    "Carpoolers"

    Less about saving the environment than male bonding, four guys from very different backgrounds relish their daily commute as they commiserate about their lives, jobs and families in the carpool lane.

Inspired by the popular Geico Insurance commercials, the series looks at life through the eyes of the ultimate outsiders - three modern cavemen - as they struggle to find their place in the world. Joel, his cynical best friend, Nick, and easy-going little brother, Jamie, are contemporary cavemen who live in the suburban south and simply want to be treated like ordinary thirty-something guys. Despite their attempts at assimilation, Nick doesn't believe mainstream society will ever completely accept them, Jamie seems to take it all in stride and Joel straddles the middle, torn between his friends, his more traditional values and his loving fiance.

Amidst student behavioral problems and the persistent romantic advances of the male nurse, Gary, Rebecca is certain of one thing - she is interested in the hot auto-shop-turned-Spanish-teacher, Tim.

    ALTERNATIVE SERIES

    "Oprah's Big Give"

    The first primetime series from Harpo Productions centers on the competition, drama and emotion as millions of dollars are given away to make a difference in people's lives across the country. Each week contestants will face a "big twist" that will test their nerve, drive, ingenuity and passion. Big name stars will turn up throughout the series to join the "Oprah's Big Give" tour. During the eight episodes filmed in various U.S. cities, the field will be narrowed. The stakes will get higher and higher, with one person ultimately being chosen as The Biggest Giver. "Oprah's Big Give" is created and produced by Harpo Productions in conjunction with Profiles Television Productions, LLC. Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Rakieten, Harriet Seitler, Jonathan Sinclair, Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri are executive producers.
    You'll notice Lost isn't on the schedule. But don't panic. They're still airing it, but it won't be shown until sometime in 2008. Probably around February.

    Cancelled: What About Brian, George Lopez, Knights of Prosperity, In Case of Emergency, Six Degrees and According to Jim, and The Nine.

    CBS Shows Mother Love, Drops Jericho and More

    As Ausiello scooped a couple of hours ago, Variety says that CBS has declared Jericho a bomb and opted not to renew it for a second season. The struggling drama Close to Home and the sitcom The Class have also been dropped, meanwhile as already reported Rules of Engagement lives on. But the Eye isn't totally blind: How I Met Your Mother will see a third season. Previous pickups include The Unit, Numbers, Ghost Whisperer, all three CSIs, NCIS and Shark.
    ______________________________ _____

    I'm so happy that How I Met Your Mother has been renewed! Out of all the new comedies, I'm glad to see Rules of Engagement coming back.

    Re: Fall 2007-08 Season

    hmm, NBC bought a remake of the Bionic woman... i guess they have a better shot with a classic than to get an all new show.

    Cavemen sounds interesting, i guess the Geico people have no involvement in the project, but will be pissed if the show does good for ABC

    Re: Fall 2007-08 Season

    Two of my favorites - What About Brian? and The Class got dumped I really can't believe CBS canceled The Class, especially since Jim Burroughs was directing. I thought they'd give him a little more leeway. Big mistake, I think. That show was really coming into its own and had a lot of potential. Now I'm back watching only one sitcom again - The Office. I really only watched How I Met Your Mother because it was a lead-in for The Class.

    CBS Schedule

    ETonline.com: CBS Adds Five New Series

    A P.I. who is a vampire, two inept brainiacs and Jimmy Smits are just a few of the highlights for CBS' upcoming fall schedule.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There aren't going to be a whole lot of changes to CBS' 2007-2008 schedule. As the most-watched network, the majority of this year's schedule will remain intact, with only five new series being added to the line-up: one comedy and four dramas.

    The solo new comedy, "The Big Bang Theory," from CHUCK LORRE ("Two and a Half Men"), is about brainy best friends who can tell you anything you want to know about science, but are lost when it comes to dealing with everyday life.

    JIMMY SMITS returns to series TV in "Cane," a drama about the head of a powerful South Florida Cuban-American family who runs a successful rum and sugar business.

    The Boy from Oz star HUGH JACKMAN is bringing a little music to primetime drama with "Viva Laughlin," starring LLOYD OWEN as a freewheeling businessman whose sole ambition is to run a casino in Laughlin, NV. The series is based on the BBC show, "Viva Blackpool."

    JOEL SILVER segues from producing "Veronica Mars" to another private-eye drama, "Moonlight," starring ALEX O'LOUGHLIN as a vampire who uses his preternatural senses to help the living -- instead of sucking their blood.

    The fourth drama, "Swingtown," is a mid-season series set in the '70s that explores the sexual and social revolution that took place during that decade.

    "We approached our development this year with a specific goal in mind -- to be daring and different," said NINA TASSLER, President of CBS Entertainment. "The fall and mid-season series we have selected offer creativity and variety with great potential to excite and surprise television audiences everywhere."

    Returning series include "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Two and a Half Men," "Rules of Engagement," "60 Minutes," "Survivor," "How I Met Your Mother," "CSI: Miami," "NCIS," "The Unit," "Criminal Minds," CSI: NY," "Without a Trace," "Ghost Whisperer," "Numb3rs," "Cold Case," Shark" and "48 Hours: Mystery."

    Canceled series include "The Class," "Jericho" and "Close to Home."
