    Oh yeah! Forgot that one earlier... blotted it out of my memory because it was so painfully bad.

    I haven't watched all the new ones but so far my favorites are:

    Chuck
    Reaper
    Back to You

    (this is weird because I rarely like sitcoms)

    Still watching:
    Kid Nation

    Hated:
    Bionic Woman
    Kane on TV in background and didn't see anything remotely interested

    I saw the pilot for Pushing Daisies months ago. Not sure how I feel about it. I will probably see where it goes.

    I've watched both episodes (how many eps of Lucky Louie did you watch? ;) ) but I'm not loving it. The gag setups are so transparent that by the time they finish the punchline I'm picking lint off my chair and trying to remember if I already put the dogs' flea medicine on this month. These are not funny thoughts. I also really didn't like Everybody Loves Raymond, so I guess I'm just not the right demographic. :(

    Ah c'mon! How can you not laugh at Jerry coming out of the shower and standing next to Louie in a too-short towel?!?! I laughed so hard I was actually sore. I don't know how they managed to get through that scene without cracking up; I never could have done it.

    For half-hour comedies I also loved Sienfeld, Sports Night (although this wasn't a pure comedy), and of course Arrested Development. And I was really excited to see someone mention that Boondocks will be coming back with a new season soon--now that is a funny show! :up: :up:

    So far Reaper and Chuck are my favs. On the fence with Back to You, which seems like Frasier Part 2, so it seems old. Big Bang Theory is ok.

    As for the rest, I will watch Pushing Daisies, just not really interrested in the rest.

    I haven't seen a lot of the new shows, Dirty Sexy Money is one I have seen and enjoyed though. Oh yeah Kid Nation also.

    Oh, and I must add Back to You to the keeper list. That second episode was hilarious.

    It's too bad about Dirty Sexy Money, it has some actors I like alot. (Peter Krause: Casey McCall - Sports Night; Zoe McLellan: P.O. Jennifer Coates - JAG)
    But I just couldn't get into it.

    Most are still sitting on my Tivo waiting to be watched.

    I have watched and enjoyed Aliens In America and Kitchen Nightmares (glad it's somewhat different than the BBC version, otherwise, why bother?)

    Life, Journeyman, Dirty Sexy Money, Cane and Chuck are all waiting to be watched as I finish up watching the excellent Burn Notice stockpile that I built up.

    The only new show I'm season passing is Kid Nation.

    Journeyman seems like it has potential. If it gets picked up for a second season I will watch season 1 through netflix, then watch the show as it plays. Thats what I did with Heroes.

    Okay, add to my list in message #31 above:

    Pushing Daisies -- EASILY the best new show of the year, and perhaps the best pilot episode I've seen since Lost's. Funny, incredible attention to detail, with character we can easily come to love.

    Got to put Pushing Daisies on my short list, as well.

    Still waiting for Women's Murder Club -- a procedural, for sure, but with four lovely ladies as the leads. Especially Angie Harmon, easily the best of all of the Law & Order ADAs.

    Too much stuff to watch..

    I've only watched Dirty, Sexy, Money and like it a lot. I missed Peter Krause after Six Feet Under, so it's great to have him back and there is a good cast. Hope it doesn't get too "over the top"..

    Otherwise, I'm too busy watching
    Dexter, Brotherhood, Damages and a couple of network favorites of mine (still) Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters.

    Waiting for Nip/Tuck to return..

    And, last but not least....with Red Sox baseball and Patriots football, yikes!...it's great (I realize not everyone feels the same!) so with all the new shows, I can't quite spend ALL of my time in front of the TV.

    Based on the second episode, I would have to say that The Big Bang Theory is my favorite new show.

    So far I am really really liking...

    Pushing Daisies - Like a great Tim Burton children's book for adults!
    Reaper - Pretty entertaining and has potential
    Chuck - Might be written about me... haha
    Dirty Sexy Money - Thought provoking, funny, enjoyable

    Waiting to watch...

    Gossip Girl

    Fringe...
    Life, Journeyman

    I was on the bubble with Bionic Woman after the first episode. Episode 2 was bad enough to delete the SP.

    I like Journeyman, and I've been watching Chuck, but I don't know how long either show will last.
