I haven't watched all of the new shows this season, but I've watched a few.
I am grateful that it appears that the glut of reality programming has abated, and now we're only forced to deal with the same old reality shows. The big, controversial season of Survivor lasted 2 weeks, until the race-based teams were broken up. So much for that social experiment. And I quit watching.
CBS served up a new drama, Smith, about the lives of thieves. I watched the first episode, thought FX's Thief was better, and quit watching. Smith has already been canned.
ABC, still believing that another mysterious serial drama is the perfect follow up to LOST (see: last season's Invasion), served up The Nine. I was so thoroughly bored after the pilot episode, I haven't gone back.
NBC, believing that telling behind-the-scenes stories of the now dreadful Saturday Night Live was a good idea, has presented Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and 30 Rock. I watched the first few episodes of Studio 60, thought it wasn't funny, wasn't dramatic, and had gaping plot holes. I'm done with it. The pilot episode of 30 Rock was somewhat funny, so I'm going to give it a few more chances.<>The one new show that has captured my attention is NBC's Heroes. I know it's yet another attempt to capitalize on the superhero phenomena (X-Men, Smallville, Superman Returns, Batman Begins, Entourage's obsession with Aquaman), but I've found this one interesting, and hope it continues to entertain and leave me guessing.
