    Call my broker and get me some more NEWS Corp stock. New Amsterdam seems to have appeal as a love story, as sci-fi/fantasy, as history, and as a cop show. Great idea if they can pull it off. Back To You, combined with Til Death in a set schedule place, can be the first non-cartoon comedy hits on Fox since Malcolm. Sarah Connor, in the X-Files old spot, can be killer action/sci-fi. The American Idol rip off with bands seems OK. The girlie lawyer preachy show will be a hit among those who like that sort of thing.

    Fox #1.

    Why is Fox trying to kill off Bones by moving it to Friday nights mid-season?

    Knowing Fox, about half of those shows will be axed within 6 episodes, another one or two will be gone after the first run.

    Canterbury's Law sounded okay on first glance, but it's about a defense attorney, we already have enough criminals getting away with things in real life, don't need a TV shows about it. Just watch the news.

    I will be checking out K-Ville, New Amsterdam, and The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    Oops I had it as War At Home but The War At Home is the correct name, thought I deleted that line. I really liked it as well, I thought it was very funny and fit in great with the rest of Fox Sunday. Plus I thought Hillary was HOT. Hey's she's only one year younger then me in real life, I'm allowed to say that :D

    Nice to see another WNYer is around, after the Sabres game yesterday I thought this whole area would be in a complete state of depression. I went to the Best Buy in Amherst today, it seemed like the whole area has just been completely deflated.

    Part of the pilot for K-Ville was shot right below my office window. It was a very unproductive day...

    I was suprised to see King Of The Hill re-signed for a 12th season. The 11th Season Finale could've easily been a Series Finale.

    and it SHOULD have been...I like it, but they just cant beat a dead horse much longer, they have tapped it for every possible angle on all decent punch lines.

    Also, how can there be a show about Sara Conner without Arnold? the whole governorship seems to keep him busy these days

    The only things that sound decent are Amsterdam and Sarah Connor, the rest I could care less about, we need less reality tv and need more tv shows! I watch tv to get away from reality! I hope they are not trying to kill bones, my wife and I really like that show.

    The...
    Other than AFV (which never fails to make me feel smarter) I have never watched any
    of the so-called reality shows. From what I have seen on their ubiquitous, incessant
    and seemingly unavoidable promos, they are anything but real.

    I have zero plans to watch any of Fox's new shows -- except for the Idol spin-off. I figure why bother.

    Can anyone jog my memory as to when there was a "traditional" sitcom that worked on fox...maybe I'm just having a brain fart, but I can't seem to recall one.
