I made it through the last of the fall premieres on my lunch today. "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" wrapped up the list - it's a spin-off of the Terminator franchise.
The fall premiere season is a little more organized this year than it has in the past, mostly because Fox isn't launching a bunch of shows at the end of August to give them a head start before the baseball postseason. The premieres don't really get rolling until the week of Sept. 16. Not coincidentally, you can read my preview on Sept. 16.
Here's a tiny taste, though: If you can squeeze one new show into your schedule, try "Pushing Daisies" on ABC. If you can squeeze two more in, try the CW's "Reaper." And if you've got room for three, add NBC's "Chuck."
"Chuck" and "Reaper" are actually the same show, except that features a collector for Satan and the other is about a tech support guy at Circuit City. Don't let that confuse you, though. They're both Judd Apatow wanna-bes. Whereas "Pushing Daisies" is a Tim Burton wanna-be.
Anyway, much, much, much more to come.
