Question: I know CBS has won every week of the season. I bet they'll win every week until ABC's Bowl season starts. I bet they'll also win every week, with the exception of the Super Bowl week and the two weeks of the Olympics. Should CBS really celebrate this? Of course! However, once people get tired of the crime dramas, the whole schedule will collapse. I mean, they have nine procedurals on their schedule (excluding Saturday repeats of, you guessed it, more procedurals), so it's bound to happen. I hope that it does. I can't even watch CSI anymore because of how much I now hate procedurals. But to my question: Do you think that the same thing that happened to ABC with its multiple airings of Millionaire will happen to CBS? If so, when? Because I can't wait!
Answer: I'm not quite as bloodthirsty about the prospect as you seem to be. But to me the most depressing outcome of the season so far has not been the cancellations of promising shows like Threshold and Just Legal (most of the

I would like to know why Just ...

Question: I would like to know why Just Legal wasn't given a better chance to prove itself. I am a great fan of Don Johnson and have never seen him in anything that wasn't wonderful. This was a good program showing that younger and older people could work together. Loved your review on the show. Just wish it would have had more time. It was a great show that never had a chance. Answer: Of all the new shows canceled so far this season, this was easily the best of the lot. But it wasn't exactly a surprise. WB was taking a risk going outside its target demo with a show built around a veteran actor (albeit pairing him with a kid), and it didn't pay off. I doubt WB really believed in the show, which is why it was yanked so quickly. This is a classic situation of a show airing on absolutely the wrong network. If this had been developed for CBS, for example, it would probably still be on the air ... read more

After seeing the first two ...

Question: After seeing the first two episodes of the season, I just love Everwood more and more! The end of the second episode left me in tears. This show has the unique ability to be touching and real at the same time. What do you think of this season so far? How do you think it will fare against CSI? Do you think there is a possibility of it returning to Monday, when it clearly has a better chance of survival? Answer: Everwood became a personal favorite show of mine last season — I wrote a column declaring it to be TV's best tearjerker — and it's just as strong and moving this year. It is hands-down the best "family" show on TV, with a broad range of sympathetic characters, and the writing and acting continue to improve and shine. I hate that WB moved the show to the overstuffed Thursday night, where it's in danger of getting lost and buried. But it's doing better than anything WB ever put there before, so it's far from a disaster for the network (which is merely looking to generate ... read more

SPOOKY DEVELOPMENT

WB has picked up Supernatural for a full season. Meanwhile, as we reported Thursday, the network has thrown the book at Just Legal after just three episodes. Its Monday-night replacement has not been named, but sources report seeing the cast of Everwood hightailing it out of Thursday with nothing but the shirts on their backs. read more

LEGAL BRIEF

Although not confirmed by WB, sources tell TVGuide.com that the plug has been pulled on the Don Johnson-Jay Baruchel drama Just Legal after just three low-rated airings. Now let's hope the network does the right thing and returns Everwood to Mondays at 9 pm. read more
