The scheduling of Charlie's Angels is crazy. Up against The X-Factor, Big Bang Theory, Community/Parks and Recreation, and whatever The CW runs at that timeslot. Just about the entire audience who would be inclined to look at Charlie's Angels is split between all those other shows.

And yet, there's nothing else my DVR is set to record on its second tuner while the first is busy with NBC Thursday night comedies. So I'll take a look at Charlie's Angels.

You are not watching Big Bang, its been great this season. Good for Wagner. Poor Tim Allen and again a lot of shows that look like good movies, but not good shows on TV ie Revenge and Missing. College Football is the only thing I will watch regularly. Also, fuck Once Upon a Time and Grimm, just get the rights to Fables and be done with it. I doubt either one will be as good as Fables even if they half ass Fables.

This just in... (thefutoncritic.com)

Cougar Town and Apartment 23 will take the 9-10PM hour on Tuesdays between the fall and spring editions of Dancing With The Stars. That's approximately December to March. So, only 13 episodes for Cougar Town? Oof.

Yeah, how is Missing a full series? Sounds a lot like a movie, as you said, or maybe a mini-series.

ABC has two missing people shows? Did they learn nothing from NBC launching 30 Rock and Studio 60 in the same year?

Glad to see Nancy Travis back in action, sad that it's against Tim Allen.

Glad to see Jeremy Sisto still getting work, but I was hoping he'd get the lead for the rumored Preacher adaptation.

After the finish to last night's show, Mrs. Sec19Row53 feared that the show was done.

She's now curious what the heck happened (or will happen).

Star Trer--->TJ Hooker--->Boston Legal

Shatner runs in and out on about a 20 year cycle, why can't Allen?

At least The River has given us an extremely easy story to wrap up when they get cancelled.

"Sir they've cut our order to four episodes. You'll have yo write a finale."
"Exterior: Jungle. The family sees him behind a tree."

I'll give Charlie's Angels a try because why not, and maybe Suburgatory because I like puns.

I wish GCB and Apartment 23 had kept their original titles.

Pan Am has kind of sparked my interest.

*clicks link*

Is that Christina Ricci?

Yeah...I'm on board.

Wow- looks terrible! I don't watch a lot of TV, but rarely does my box tune to ABC.

Extreme Home Makeover to Friday? I don't like it. Maybe I am behind the times, and this has been happening for a while, but I always felt Sunday night was good for this show. A nice, heartfelt way to end the weekend.. I felt it had a perfect time slot.

What I will say looks bright-

Pan Am looks like it could be OK, but also could be terrible. We'll see

Last Man Standing could be a cool family oriented type sitcom if they work it right. I have no problem with Tim Allen either. I feel Home Improvement is unwatchable now, but when it first came out I enjoyed it. Maybe my age?

As stated before, a lot of these descriptions sound more like movies versus tv shows. While some may translate to good shows, I seriously doubt it, because every week we'll just be looking for the inevitable finale.. which won't happen..

I Loved Lost. I'm going to give Once upon a time a shot. I don't think it will last as long as Lost did , but I do hope it's not as confusing.

Cerebus made a point in the NBC thread that this is probably their way of making a fairy tale-based show without having to pay Warner or DC.

The cynic in me finds it hard to argue with that logic.

On a completely different note, at least we've been spared the Mike Greenberg sitcom...for now.

I loved LOST so I'm going to give Once Upon A Time a shot. But I admit that I was turned off a bit by the trailer. It starts off really good with the girl arriving in the town of Storybrooke and then just goes everywhere in a weird disoriented way that's hard to make sense out of what the show is going to be.

I agree the trailer looks odd and it wasn't what I expected. I am expecting that were going to be getting some strange choices for the fairy tale creatures and who they turned into.
The logical way would be we get a guy who hates kids and runs the local school like Hitler and he ends up being Peter Pan. Knowing them watch Peter Pan be the town junky getting high on " pixie dust"
