    I expected (OK, hoped) Life and Bionic Woman would be stronger than they are. I'm going to give them a couple more weeks to see it they can pick up some steam. I thought Chuck was actually pretty good this week.

    Anchorwoman -- this show was cancelled so fast, I wonder if anyone saw it. Is it not considered a fall show?

    Cavemen -- The wife wanted to give it a look, but we turned it off before the pilot finished. Not funny, can it.

    Chuck -- Even worse than being overhyped, I was personally underwhelmed. Bumbling, no-prospect slacker has to save the world. Sounds good on paper but, so far, not enough funny or enough action for me. It's too similar to Reaper, so can it.

    Reaper -- Another slacker forced to save the world, I'm finding it funnier than Chuck and hope it delivers even more on it's potential. If eye candy is a criterion, Missy Peregrym is not hard on the eyes. Keep it.

    Life -- This show hooked me in, just from the pilot, more than any other new fall show. I'm hoping it will stay and be great. Keep it.

    Bionic Woman -- The creators of the new Galactica series deserve to be given time to get the ball rolling. So far it's a little fuzzy on what will be the direction and tone. Give it time.

    Journeyman -- While I'm reminded way too much of Quantum Leap, this one isn't bad. I can take it or leave it. Give it time.

    Pushing Daisies -- The co-creator of Wonderfalls, one of my favorite shows of all time, also deserves time for his latest creation to hit it's stride. The pilot showed plenty of the same quirky humor that made WF so much fun. Keep it.

    She's definitely my favorite part of the show. Damn she’s hot! I also like Sock, or as I will always know him, Dave from Invasion. Reaper is different then what I thought it would be, but I still like it. A little lame, but I like the cast. Just wish I had the CW in HD.

    I should be good at this game. I'm probably the only one who watched (and liked) "John from Cincinnati" on HBO. So, for that very reason (and unless we're leaving out premiums), my vote goes to "Californication" on Showtime. The fact that Mulder gets laid in every ep could be troubling to most people.

    I agree 100% with Caveman. What a waste of perfectly good digits, but then I suspect we all knew that it would be. I also agree with Back to You. Journeyman I sort of like. I haven't seen the other two.

    I'm still hoping for Back to You to succeed but ...

    Gave up on Bionic Woman and Chuck already.

    Caveman? Whom can I sue for stealing 30 minutes of my life?

    I watched the pilot of Cavemen and didn't like it. Not funny at all.

    I really like Chuck. I don't know why it's getting hammered in this thread. I think it's funny and clever with enough action to keep it exciting.

    I like Big Bang Theory, but it's probably too geeky to last. All of the physics jokes will wear on people who haven't read Steven Hawking or taken a college physics class.

    I like Journeyman. It reminds me of Moon Bloodgood's (who's VERY HOT) last show, Daybreak. Unfortunately, I think it'll probably go the same way as Daybreak and be lucky if it makes it through the season.

    I've TiVo'd all the episodes of Bionic Woman, but haven't gotten around to watching any of them yet. I don't know if I ever will.

    I made it to the third musical number in the pilot before stopping and cancelling the SL. Might have been interesting otherwise.

    Of the lot I only hope to see Journeyman stay for a bit longer (still undecided).

    I'm sorry to say this, but... you took your life in your own hands by sitting down for that experience. I couldn't have been paid to watch Caveman. Well, maybe if I was paid a lot... but no way was I volunteering for that potential torture. I am only sad that I couldn't avoid the accidental glimpses while watching other ABC programming when they would promo the series.

    Is anyone else surprised Carpoolers is still on the schedule?
