Discuss the Fall 2010 PILOTS
No, we haven't seen them. But we can get a pretty good idea of them from this:
Fall TV Trailers 2010 | Television Shows
That link leads to a Hollywood Reporter collection with all the stuff shown at the Up Fronts.
Focus here is not on the total schedule or competition (I believe there's another thread for that) but to comment on the new shows one by one, without having to dump a whole new topic down (yet) for each one. Just post any general feelings about the pilots here, and when they get closer to reality as shows, I'm sure we'll make topics for each.

Okay, here's one. JJ Abrams new spy show on NBC, Undercovers.
Go to that link above and watch the promo. Almost immediately you spot one thing. Not one, but BOTH leads are people of color. And the show seems to act completely and totally colorblind about that. Wow. Way to go, JJ. It looks well made, if a little generic, otherwise. Although the inclusion of Gerald McRaney? Always a HUGE plus. He's made of win.
Here's another. The guys who made the Sopranos seem to be the ones making Tom Selleck's new show on CBS, Blue Bloods. NEVER would have imagined Selleck as the next Gandolfini. Anyway, the cast on this thing? FREAKING INCREDIBLE. Selleck. Donnie Wahlberg. Will Estes. Bridget Moynahan. These is a rather imposing ensemble.
And of course there's Shatner's sitcom on CBS, with the jokey name. Shatner playing an a-hole Dad, basically. Remember that show with Christopher Titus where Stacy Keach played the a-hole Dad? Its that show. But with Shatner, and Nicole Sullivan and Will Sasso, which is probably a better cast.
