    Human Target

    The premiere for this show is on tonight (Sunday, January 17th) at 8PM EST on Fox. I've seen the pilot and it is a really compelling show that stars Mark Valley who some people may know from Boston Legal.

    In full disclosure, I've known Mark for years and years and he is a great guy so I hope people (particularly those who have a Nielsen box ) watch the show and it becomes a success.

    The show has a lot of action adventure and Mark plays a cross between a James Bond type character and a comic book heroic figure.

    It is on tonight before the new season of 24 but then will be shifted around in time slots and change days. This is what I think they'll be and will come back and add to this if the schedule changes:

    The regular day will be Wednesdays but it will air Wednesday, January 20th, at 9PM EST after American Idol and then the following week before American Idol (which I think will be it's regular day and time) Wednesdays at 8PM EST.

    I hope you guys check it out. Thanks!

    I thought of you when I saw the preview the other day!

    I'll be watching! I've always liked Mark and thought it was a shame when they wrote him out of Boston Legal and was bummed when they canceled Keen Eddie.

    Anyway, it looks like it'll be a good one. I like Chi McBride a lot and I'm so happy to see Jackie Earle Haley working again. I hope Fox gives the show a chance.

    If I'm not mistaken, the pilot will be repeated on Tuesday evening for anyone who misses tonight's showing. Then they will air episode 1 on Wednesday. I will certainly take a look.

    Loved the show. Great combination of humor and action. Reminded me a bit of Dean Martin/Matt Helm.

    I loved it too, I really missed Mark when Keen Eddie was cancelled. I loved how weasely the dirty computer guy was.

    Florimel, you're right. The pilot that first aired Sunday will be on tonight after American Idol and then a new episode will air tomorrow after AI.

    Thanks for recognizing the rest of the cast, Critical.

    And Keen Eddie! That was a cute show that Fox really promoted but then never really gave a chance to find an audience.

    Glad you liked it Kip and Duxxy. And no one should feel bad if the show's not for them. Not every show appeals to everyone.

    Re: Human Target

    I made a point to watch it tonight (and I hadn't seen this thread first ;-) ), so now I'm wishing I had a Nielsen box.

    I liked it a lot. I never watched Boston Legal or Keen Eddie, although I do know who Chi McBride is :-)

    Thanks for the head's up that there's another episode tomorrow!

    I also watched it tonight. As a Jets fan, I couldn't watch it on Sunday, but i did enjoy it and look forward to more.

    I really liked Chi McBridge on Pushing Daisies.

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I really liked it. Thought the mix of characters worked.
