"Why just watch if you can feel?" As new-season slogans go, ABC's feels ... well, a bit clingy and demanding. Back off, ABC. I'll feel you when I'm good and ready.
But the proof is in the programming, and ABC's new fall schedule — unveiled during Tuesday's Lincoln Center upfront presentation — feels like something I'll be spending a fair amount of time analyzing, and perhaps even enjoying, in the season to come. (See the full lineup here.)

When it briefly transformed into One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest two years ago, Hugh Laurie had an equally powerful actor, Andre Braugher, to play off as his nuthouse shrink. Now Fox's medical drama is taking a not-so-wonderful journey to the land of Oz — the HBO prison drama, that is — and all he's got is bland Odette Annable as a jailhouse doc House will no doubt hire at Princeton-Plainsboro once he gets sprung.
Romancing the Stone
Get Billy Ocean on the horn! NBC is planning to adapt Romancing the Stone as a television series, Deadline reports.
The 1984 romantic comedy stars Kathleen Turner as romance novelist Joan Wilder, who travels to Colombia to save her kidnapped sister, with the help of con man/charmer Jack T.

The box office smash, which launched Turner's career and is considered Douglas' comeback film, spawned an equally successful sequel, 1985's Jewel of the Nile — and two killer theme songs, Eddy Grant's funky original and Ocean's peppier follow-up.
Odette Annable has joined the cast of House as a series regular for Season 8, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Brothers & Sisters
If you thought the Walkers had issues on Brothers & Sisters, wait until you see the Laurents in action.
"They may put the Walkers to shame," Gilles Marini, who plays Luc Laurent, tells TVGuide.com. "It is just pure drama, through and through. There's no other way to describe it. I don't think the Walkers have even dealt with something or someone like that before."
