So as we approach the end of sweeps and the mid-season upon us, I am curious to see what shows liked and what they didn't and what shows will stick around despite fan reaction.
Me I am glad to see the return of quality sitcom programming in the wake of Raymond, Fraiser and Friends departing us, it looked bleak but newcomers "My Name is Earl" and "How I Met Your Mother" have faired really well with shows like "Out of Practice" and "Kitchen Confidential" barely scrapping by.
This tv season saw a return to the sci-fi genre after the success of Sci-Fi channel. Big winner was "Supernatural" with "Nightstalker" getting some pemenent sleep. Alien genre shows "Surface" "Invasion" and "Threshold" struggle to stay alive.
"E-Ring" and "Commander and Chief" have picked up steam with advertising and time changes where as big headliner shows with stars like Don Johnson and Chris O Donnell both respectavilly being cancelled. Fox also saw success in there new CSI-esqe show "Bones" with former Buffy star David Borienz.
Break out surprise hit of the fall turned out tobe "Prison Break" a place holder for 24 that surpassed all expectations and has been renewed but the season will end abruptly in Dec and remain on hiatus until the conclussion of 24 next summer.
What shows made your grade? Any disappointments? Any surprises?
