4 hours of Dancing with the Stars over 3 days!! Talk about overkill! I think ABC is running that show into the ground like Millionaire.

Now ABC and CBS both have zero shows I'm interested in. Great. When is the Mitchell Hurwitz coming to ABC?? I can't wait for that.

CBS and ABC seem to have the weakest new fall lineups. I'll try Private Practive 2.0, Women's Murder Club, Dirty Sexy Money and maybe Big Shots. When Victor Garber's new show Eli Stone premieres mid-season I'll try that too.......this is addition to the usual stuff I already watch on this network.

I'm trying out most of ABC's new Dramas: Cashmere Maffia, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, and Big Shots

Private Practice is already a given since I enjoyed the "backdoor pilot" episode more than any other GA episode this season.

And I can't wait to get MEN IN TREES and BROTHERS AND SISTERS back!

I actually don't watch any of the returning shows (except for the random episode of Brothers & Sisters if I am not doing anything else), but I will be checking out two of their new shows: Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies. Both look really, really good.

Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money caught my interest. But if not for those, there's not a lot here I'd even watch.

Wow, the only show I really love (Boston Legal) doesn't even have a set premiere date. Lame!

Of the returning shows, I'm only interested in Ugly Betty.

I will give the new shows a try to see if I like any of them.

ABC & the CW are the 2 channels that have nothing of intrest. Well ABC has Lost & Men In trees but thats about it. NBC & CBS have way more intresting & higher quality shows.
ABC seems to be all about horrible reality shows & sex that isn't intresting. The comedies on ABC havn't been good in the last few years & I can see this trend will most likely continue.
Besides Lost, which is losing quality & Men In Trees which hasn't even aired a complete season yet, the only other show that really has any quality is Desperate Housewives. Which I stopped watching after the first season anyway.
