Tonight at 9 pm/ET, the new NBC drama Heroes raises the question, "What if you woke up one day to realize that you possessed superpowers? Flight, mind reading, teleportation, indestructibility... what if one of these abilities was suddenly yours? Among the ensemble cast of would-be superbeings are Alias' Greg Grunberg, Ice Princess' Hayden Panettiere, Gilmore Girls' Milo Ventimiglia and newcomer Masi Oka as an actual Hiro, a Japanese workforce drone who in the commercials is all too happy to get a whiff of his destiny.

Question: Matt, I'm a huge fan! My question is about ABC's comedies (According to Jim, Rodney, Hope & Faith, Crumbs, Sons & Daughters, George Lopez, Freddie and Less than Perfect). Which ones do you think will survive another season? I think it's time for According to Jim and Hope & Faith to go. But I love Rodney and Less than Perfect.

ABC: The network's comedies are having a tough year in the ratings, but you can't cancel all of them. Rodney, Hope & Faith, Crumbs and Less than Perfect aren't likely to make the cut. According to Jim, George Lopez and Freddie have a chance of returning. Since ABC has two more hours to program in the fall now that football has moved to NBC, shows that would otherwise be doomed have a chance. We're talking Invasion and Commander in Chief. Their survival depends on the strength of the network's new-program development.
CBS: Another season of The King of Queens depends on whether the n
