The only show that comes to mind is “Pushing Daisies”. I’ve been reading so much about and I’m so digging Bryan Fuller’s “Dead Like Me” this summer (finally catching up with it), that I’ve mostly tuned out reports about any of the other shows. But “Reaper” and “Aliens In America” are also creeping into my awareness.

Otherwise, I’m having such a great time with the summer programming (Burn Notice, My Boys, Damages, Psych, The 4400, Eureka and on and on), I’m not too concerned with what the fall promises….

Toby, Pushing Daisies is one of the shows I am looking forward to as well.

Yes, Dead Like Me was a great show. Did you know that they just got finished filming a straight-to-DVD Dead Like Me movie with most of the original cast reprising their roles? There was no Mandy Patinkin and the Daisy character was recast. It is supposed to be released sometime next year.

You’re right about this being a great summer for TV. As for the “on and on,” I would add The Closer, Kyle XY, Saving Grace, Mad Men, Traveler and Monk to the ones you mentioned.

PUSHING DAISIES is hands down the best new show of the fall season. Chuck is also incredibly wonderful!

Thanks for the link.

Ducky, it seems most people that have seen Pushing Daisies absolutely love it. As for Chuck, the promo for it has my new favorite quote: “Working on my five year plan, just need to choose a font.” It looks like a lot of fun as well.

Can’t wait for PUSHING DAISIES, BIONIC WOMAN, DIRTY SEXY MONEY, CANE, ALIENS IN AMERICA, GOSSIP GIRL…. geez.. I’m a TV Addict… I’m excited for everything, with the exception of CAVEMEN.

TVaddict, much like you, I’m pretty excited for most everything. Really looking forward to seeing Pushing Daisies, all four of NBC’s new shows (Chuck, Journeyman, Bionic Woman, Life), the return of Friday Night Lights and well, like I said, just about everything.
