    Seeing that Matthew Perry of Friends fame has gotten ANOTHER new show and that the network has made a point of advertising that he's a part of it, makes me wonder. Are there any former TV stars that, no matter what the premise of the show, you would make a point to watch because (s)he's in it?

    I only watched Ringer because of Sarah Michelle Gellar. I never would have watched it without her. If she does another TV show I will watch that as well.....good or bad.

    No star gets a free pass from me. I did try Touch (Kieffer Sutherland), and Ringer (Sarah Michelle Gellar) partly because of the stars, but there has to be more than that to get me, and even more to keep me interested.

    Believe it or not, William Shatner. I watched that stupid sitcom with him in it and enjoyed it.

    I will try a show because of a few people. I will only stick with it if it is a decent show.

    I like any of the Firefly, West Wing, Arrested Developement, or Scrubs stars. I thought those shows were cast very well, and have started following those people.

    From Seinfeld, only Julia Louis Dreyfus interests me. The rest have not been able to do a decent followup.

    I am waiting for shows with the people from Chuck, especially Yvonne Strahovski. I will tune into them.

    Jennifer Aniston.

    Tom Selleck! I'm totally hooked on Blue Bloods now but I doubt I would have started watching if he wasn't in it.

    She might be one of the few I might tune it because SHE'S in it.

    I really liked that stupid sitcom too and was bummed that it didn't come back. It really was kind of dumb, but I thought it was funny.

    I must say, however, that I partly watched because I really like Nicole Sullivan and Will Sasso. They should have their own show.

    I find that I watch a lot of shows because the star is somebody I really like. I love Fran Drescher and watch her show for that reason. I do like the show. Yeah, it's kitschy but I didn't expect it not to be. I also began watching 'Hot in Cleveland' because I really like all four women who star in it. I really like Kristen Johnston so I watch her show and am glad it is coming back. I guess this became an ad for TV Land (not intended). :)

    I loved Oz and watched a lot of shows that had the stars from that show. They are all over the place. Two of them are doing pretty intertaining insurance company (two different companies) commercials.

    Richard Ayoade and Matt Berry (The IT Crowd, Garth Merenghi) - they crack me up.

    I rarely watch British TV and I only watched The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret because of him. It was a great show!

    Ricky Gervais and Nathan Fillion are two I can think of offhand.
