Fall Shows on the Fence: Save 'Em or Shelve 'Em?

This fall TV season has suffered two more casualities — NBC's My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle — bringing the total numbers of shows shown the door to an unlucky seven. Interestingly, and perhaps as a true demonstration of yin and yang, nearly same number of shows have also been given the good word that they are keepers for the season.

Crusoe's Philip Winchester Previews NBC's New Island Adventure

Philip Winchester, who plays the title character on NBC's Crusoe (Friday, Oct. 17, 8 pm/ET), does a great American accent. That's because he's American — raised in Montana, in fact. But after hearing the British accent he sports to play the shipwrecked adventurer and checking out his plummy resume (including a stint with London's Royal Shakespeare Company), you wouldn't be at fault for thinking otherwise. Winchester regales us with tales of shooting the 13-episode action-fantasy series in South Africa, including the unwelcome arrival of a very big rainstorm, the prickly perils of the jungle and what the heck MacGyver's got to do with any of it.
