In the last year, almost every television show my wife and I watch has been either cancelled, has reached the end of a long run, or is set to be cancelled after one final season. As a result, heading in to this fall, we found ourselves with three remaining shows, all of them on Thursday night. We live in a town where the only choices that you have after 8:00 PM are:
-Go to bed early and cry yourself to sleep
-Check out the new "restaurants" (aka, fast food places)
We decided to scout out a few new programs, hoping to find a few new shows to replace the old ones that have disappeared in the last year or so. So far there have been some quick exits (Lone Star), some mediocre shows (Undercovers, No Ordinary Family), and some decent starts (The Event, Outsourced), although the new shows have lacked a true ace, similar to what "24" was during its run (Boardwalk Empire could count for the ace in my book, but that's on HBO, so you expect it to be good).
