    Falling Skies looks like something I'd like, but I'm not excited. Hopefully it's executed well.

    Wilfred looks like it could be good too.

    Franklin and Bash is the only one that looks remotely entertaining in that bunch.

    Expedition Impossible looks interesting to me. Starts June 21 on ABC. Looks to be similar to Amazing Race.

    I added a trailer for that show as well.
    Hopefully since it appears to only take place in a single country the tasks/clues will be harder than on TAR.

    I'm checking out Franklin and Bash tonight. Falling Skies sounds interesting but I don't know if it is sustainable. I'll check out Expedition Impossible for sure. I was surprised but I liked the trailer for Love Bites.

    I get a Love, American Style for 2011 type vibe here. Seems well crafted. Now whether it can sustain the humor over the summer using short stories remains to be seen.

    I'm not sure I'll care for a show endlessly introducing new characters. It may be tough to create characters that will immediately hodl viewers attention.

    We'll see. Loved the trailer. But then, I pretty much liked each and every actor they had on screen.

    I will check out a few of these. I'm always a sucker for USA Network shows, so I'll check out their two new offerings for sure.

    Franklin and Bash was decent. Happy to have something new to watch over the summer. :)

    Is this a summer burnoff, or was it intentionally done for the summer?

    (Also, how much of Love, American Style was for that show, and how much was repurposing of other shows.. IIRC, the pilot for Happy Days was originally a failed pilot, showed on Love, American Style with several different actors... then after Ron Howard was popular in American Graffiti, ABC wised up..)

    I thought much of Love Bites was quite funny. The second segment, in San Francisco, was especially funny IMO.

    I was wondering if this is more of another HIMYM type show, only with different characters every week. There seems to be a glut of them on TV lately.

    Yes, I really enjoyed it. I only checked it out since there was nothing else on, but I thought it was great.

    I'm going to give Franklin & Bash a try.

    Also looking forward to the new season of Hell's Kitchen, NFNS, and I think there is a Top Chef coming up after this season of TC Masters finally dies a boring death. heh

    Love Bites bombed last night. 2.5 million viewers and a 1.0 rating. Being summer time, I wonder if that will be enough to keep it on the air.
