    I enjoyed The Sarah Connor Chronicles pilot. It helps that I heart Summer Glau. I wonder if FOX, before the premiere, will change the title to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as some have surmised.

    But not even certain characters or Janeane Garofalo can get me to watch 24 this season.

    I think I'd be insulted if I were with The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    I wonder what made them decide not to air The Sarah Connor Chronicles on Sundays as originally planned?

    Possible theories (not necessarily viable, mind you):

    1. They had to move something around to fill Nashville's spot, and somebody figured that maybe a return to Sunday night hour-long live-action shows was not a good idea as it sounded.

    2. Fox may feel that Desperate Housewives is making Sundays at 9 a "graveyard slot" and don't want to "waste" a new show like TSSC there.

    3. Try as they might, they just couldn't make American Dad! funny enough without risking the wrath of the FCC for airing "inappropriate material in a family viewing period" (AD was going to be moved from 9:30 to 7:30 in January). (Case in point: try doing last Sunday's episode without the whole cocaine/shootout business at the end.)

    I actually think American Dad is getting a lot better. It's still NOWHERE near as good as Family Guy, but it's growing on me.

    I think it's definitely better than Family Guy.

    I haven't given up on 24. I'll check it out. Plus I heard Tony is going to turn out to be Jacks long lost cousin who was married to Terri's sister that Jack used to love before he got Terri pregnant and had to marry her but Jacks father, being a terrorist and all, ruined the relationship leaving Kim to comfort a now regenerated Tony and them falling in love! And Jack gets to kick terrorist A*S!

    TSSC pairs much more logically with 24 than it does with animated sitcoms on Sunday nights. Makes perfect sense to me.

    I liked the pilot a lot more than I though I would. Lots more action than I expected. I hope it does well, and it does make sense to pair it with 24. I have given up on Prison Break.

    I liked its pilot much more than any episode of last season's 24.

    Will they be airing the pilot on that day, or have I already missed that boat?


    I haven't given up on Prison Break - I just want to see what they want Whistler for.

    The pilot is on BT. It was leaked quite some time ago.

    As of now, no. Fox has stated they want to be able to broadcast the entire season uninterrupted, which obviously cannot happen due to the strike.

    Plus, Kiefer is sitting in jail right now, so even if they had scripts, they couldn't film them.
