There's been a lot of information about in development projects lately. It's far too soon to give details about most stuff, but let's make a list of remakes and adaptations from other media.
Charlie's Angels (ABC), Funny In Farsi (ABC, a book), Gavin & Stacey (ABC, British television), St. Elmo's Fire (ABC), Star Chamber (ABC, 1983 movie starring Michael Douglas), Hawaii Five-O (CBS), Shit My Dad Says (CBS, based on the twitter feed of the same name, though wouldn't the title have to change?), The Devil and Daniel Webster (Fox), Heathers (Fox, 1989 Christan Slater & Winona Ryder movie), Masterchef (Fox, British and Australian television), Pleading Guilty (Fox, a book), Texts From Last Night (Fox, based on the twitter feed of the same name), The X-Factor (Fox, British television), Prime Suspect (NBC, British television), The Rockford Files (NBC).

Monday-Castle is a rerun this week.
Tuesday-ABC has a special about Lost to start the night, followed by the two-hour Lost premiere. There's a special episode of Kitchen Nightmares airing after American Idol on Fox.
Wednesday-CBS has the Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials starting out the night (prempting The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried).
Thursday-CBS has a special called Surviving Survivor, which features former players talking about their experiences. Bones and Fringe have their winter finales, which means that they don't come back until April 1st. The CW has a special two-hour Smallville.
Friday-Law & Order is a rerun, and reruns of House take over the former Dollhouse timeslot.
Saturday-ABC has Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone (The W at Amazon), CBS has Front of the Class, and Fox has the NASCAR Budweiser Shootout.
Sunday-the networks aren't bothering to run new programming opposite of CBS' Super Bowl XLIV, with the exception of 'Til Death on Fox, which they don't care about. The coveted post-Super Bowl slot goes to the premiere of Undercover Boss.

Fox dominates this week with 10 of the top 18 shows this week (including the State of the Union speech, oddly enough. Even the President benefits from American Idol as a lead in.)

A Heathers series? On Fox? Did they have a brain tumor for breakfast? One of my all-time favorite movies, and I just can't see Fox doing anything but turning it into a stupid teen show. Hope I'm wrong, but I don't feel too good about it.

Much weirder is the notion of a St. Elmo's Fire series, as I can't imagine too many people even remember it well enough to know who the characters would be. I mean, I saw it when it was out and liked it well enough, but "memorable" is not a word I would apply (in a good or a bad way). Just don't see the demand.

Nice to see Fringe doing well. Hope that somehow they can maintain that momentum when they come back in April.

It was a good week for cable, so I went with the top 14 shows.
NFL Pro BowlESPN01/31/
Teen MomMTV01/26/
Burn NoticeUSA01/28/
WWE RawUSA01/25/
Pawn StarsHistory01/25/
Keeping Up With The KardashiansE!01/31/
Project RunwayLifetime01/28/
White CollarUSA01/26/
19 Kids And CountingTLC01/31/
American PickersHistory01/25/
The Secret Life Of The American TeenagerABC Family01/25/
Live From The Red Carpet: 2010 GrammysE!01/31/

This was the highest rated Pro Bowl since 2000, even though it was on cable and up against the Grammys (and had all the problems that the Pro Bowl always has). I dare say that the week before the Super Bowl is going to be a regular thing.

Don't know if we have any fans, so I'm not gonna waste too much time typing if this is a "0 replies". This ep was a little weak after the incredible return of Ashley Sheaffer last week.
