    I can easily see it lasting, especially how My Name is Earl lasted so long.

    Its very original though, and so far the plot has been really diverse. I mean last weeks show was entirely different then the week before.

    Sportscenter, Scrubs, SouthPark, and Family Guy are all I need. CSI is good too.

    i dunno. i have a few buddies that are die hard LOST fans and i'm like: "you know it's just a giant ratings ploy right? that's how Abrams nabbed so many people to watch Cloverfield, by showing you glimpses but nothing more...and then you are left wanting more..."

    *shrugs*

    but at least it's well filmed and original.

    I started watching Lie To Me because Tim Roth is one of my favorite actors. Decent show, IMHO.

    just like that Trauma show or whatever. Don't try to be E.R. a-holes. You won't succeed. Chicago Hope couldn't do it and neither could any other medical drama afterward. your whole attention-getter is the helicopter slamming into the building and then i know the rest of your show will suck and will just get canceled next season.

    small note on My Name is Earl. I hated that show. I can't believe it lasted this long, but that's just me....

    it's just a matter of time before the Heroes fall. Probably to another reality cooking show or who can gain the most weight the quickest or some damn thing.

    and what's with the silly names? The Closer, The Mentalist (or whatever the hell it is), The Philanthropist (actually that one doesn't seem too bad but I don't see how they're going to carry that show very far), Medium.. lol good grief who thinks of these titles? Come on!!! You already half-assed the plot of your show and you are basically just re-casting CSI over there or whatever.

    if they're going to come out with another crime drama it'd be awesome if it was detective noir style... the trench coat and fedora and everything... maybe not black and white so much but that type of writing etc... that could be interesting but probably get canceled because too many people are glued to "I'm a Fatass Who Wouldn't Lose Weight If I Weren't On T.V."

    i dunno. t.v. pretty much blows chunks these days and the sad thing is that film isn't much better. it's like the entertainment industry went: "Let's just make a bunch of cookie-cutter shows and movies and that way idiots won't have to think or anything but they'll pay the money to watch them.

    This is one of the reasons why I don't watch much network TV. Television is definitely being made for the lowest common denominator. I feel the better shows are on HBO, Showtime, A&E etc. It sucks that reruns of Seinfeld are better and funnier than anything on network TV.
