    New Amsterdam and Moonlight appear to have significant overlap on concept.

    Possibly, but it really is even closer to Angel season 1 and Forever Knight.

    Apparently law enforcement and private investigation is the only career path for vampires and immortals.

    It lets them look all broody in stark, noirish lighting.

    TY. That is what I believed, but I could not find anything to confirm that.

    I don't know Kid Nation could be interesting depending how its done.

    If it is Lord of the Flies-esque, it could be very interesting. I suspect it will lean more towards the gee whiz look at these kinds be good and learn.

    Well, from what I see on CSI, they never turn lights on. ;)

    What I've read about Veronica Mars is that it might not be decided even when the schedule is announced today. Presumably that means that if it isn't on the schedule, that might not mean it's been officially cancelled.

    Dude, you must be out of your mind. Reno 911 is an improve comedy. Viva Laughlin is a murder/mystery musical drama. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, similar about them.

    I think Viva Laughlin looks awesome. It's based on Viva Blackpool, which aired on BBC America and was also really, really good. I would urge everyone to check out the preview of it. Like I said, I think it looks really well done. Plus, it's got Hugh Jackman and the guy who is currently playing President Palmer on 24.

    CW Info:

    Meanwhile, the CW has picked up three reality shows: Crowned (a mother-daughter beauty pageant), Farmer Wants a Wife (a dating show) and the show that shan't be named about the slutty girls dancing and singing and jiggling, which is coming back for a second season. (Shudder.)

    The CW also has greenlit the following four series:

    * Gossip Girl, a sudsy teen drama about Manhattan rich kids and the bloggy girl who keeps tabs on them. It's from O.C. mastermind Josh Schwartz.
    * The Reaper, a dramedy about a bounty hunter for the devil.
    * Life Is Wild, a drama about a family in South Africa.
    * Aliens in America, a comedy about a Muslim foreign exchange student living with an American family.

    And FOX:

    * K-Ville: A drama focusing on cops coping after Katrina in New Orleans.
    * New Amsterdam: About a 700-year-old immortal man who solves crimes.
    * Canterbury's Law: Julianna Margulies stars as a defense attorney.
    * Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Terminator character is fighting villains from the future in present-day Los Angeles. (Maybe Jack Bauer can help?)
    * Back to You: Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer are returning to TV as anchors of a Pittsburgh TV news station. Lots of buzz surrounding this one, which will be paired with Til Death.
    * The Rules for Starting Over: Rashida Jones and Craig Bierko star in this comedy from the Farrelly brothers, about divorced friends who are getting back into the dating market.
    * The Return of Jezebel James: Lauren Ambrose and Parker Posey (am I the only one who loves this combination?) star in a drama about a woman who asks her sister to be a surrogate mother for her baby.


    I will have more info when the official press release comes out

    That seems like a lot of new shows for Fox, considering they're only on two hours a night. I guess with the long hiatuses (hiati?) that shows like Prison Break and 24 take, their total number of series isn't as relevant.

    I'm waiting to see what Ausiello says - obviously he'll be at the upfront and he said he's going to ask about the future of "Veronica." But yes, at this point, it remains off the schedule, both for fall and for midseason.

    ETA: Ausiello's "transcription" of the CW Upfront, which just ended 10 minutes ago: http://community.tvguide.com/blog-e...log/Ausiello-Report/Live-Cw-Upfront/800015355

    I knew Summer Glau (Firefly/Serenity) was in this but didn't know her part. Now that I read that article, I'm very interested in this. Glad she'll get to show off her fighting prowess again!

    Of course, it will probably get shelved early...
