    I saw a special about the upcoming nbc shows and Journeyman, Life, and the Bionic Woman all look good.

    I am kind of ehh.. about most of them. None stick to mind. I have gotten so bitter over the years, that I have zero expectations any more.

    If I find 1 or 2 watchable shows in a new season, I consider it okay. 3 would be miraculous.

    I can't even name many returning shows I care about seeing at this point, with the exception of maybe the Office.

    ABC:

    Carpoolers
    Pushing Daisies (this is probably the one I'm most excited about)
    Dirty Sexy Money

    NBC:

    Chuck (though I hated the pilot)
    Life

    CBS:

    The Big Bang Theory
    Cane (can't wait for this...loved the pilot)

    CW:

    Reaper (wasn't a fan of the pilot, but we'll see)
    Aliens in America (I'll watch the re-shot pilot only because of Scott Patterson...if it's the same crap as the leaked first pilot, I'm gone)

    Nothing so far has reall peaked my interest..

    I'm sticking to the usual...Heroes, LOST, 2-1/2 Men etc etc...

    I will give The Big Bang Theory a try though...looks pretty amusing, plus it's right before/after 2-1/2 Men so I'll stick around to check it out.

    Other than that...the rest of what's coming out looks like a bunch of stuff that won't last too long.

    None yet... I am especially nervous about watching anything new on ABC or Fox because they typically require immediate success from the first episode or else the show gets canned quickly. At the very most I might record a few shows that seem to be interesting and see if they survive for a few months before I start watching them.

    And I wouldn't say I'm necessarily looking forward to any of them, they're just worth checking out.

    Pushing Daisies (though I think that one might get old quickly for me)
    Dirty Sexy Money
    Big Shots
    Bionic Woman
    Chuck
    K'ville (as if it really has a chance, since it's airing on Fox)

    Rest of the stuff I've seen info on not so much.

    Out for sure: 24. Last season nuked that for me, and the new stars that are supposed to be in same didn't help any.
    Short rope: Prison Break.

    What description/review/best promising new show links would you folks recommend for getting info about the new shows? Don't want to DL any previews/pilots, just want to read about 'em.

    I'm planning on setting season passes for all the new shows. With my 1 TB of storage in the Series 3 and 2 extra Tivo's, I should be able to get all of them recorded. I'll probably stick to just watching the returning shows, the new shows I'll watch after I'm sure they won't get canceled. I'm a little tired of investing my time in watching shows that get canceled too quickly.

    K*Ville and Dirty Sexy Money...maybe Chuck, Reaper and Cane.
    As for others...I don't know, I'll wait until they're previewed in Entertainment Weekly...not because their opinion matters, but because it makes it easier for me to see what looks decent.

    All I know is I'm waiting till I have 4 episodes of whatever new show I end up TiVo'ing before I start watching.

    I'm not going to waste my valuable time watching a show only to have it cancelled after 2-3 episodes.

    I have enough tuners and capacity to record just about everything so I probably will.
    I'm sure there's some new ones I'll have no interest in ever watching,
    but I really don't know what's coming out yet.

    New Amsterdam was delayed, I believe into the spring time frame. Also apparently, possibly, the subject of legal action for using a story that someone else had pitched before (I don't think that was the reason it was delayed though).

    Thanks for the reminder about Sarah Connor though. I do want to catch that show myself.
