Oh, the creative ways that networks find to save their failed shows.

What to do if a new show doesn't even last long enough to pretend it was a miniseries? Pretend it's a one-time special, of course! Tonight, NBC will do just that by airing the pilot of Mockingbird Lane, their remake of the '60s classic, The Munsters. But who knows, maybe the pilot will do well enough that the series will be given a real chance. There's enough talent behind it, with executive producer Bryan Fuller and stars Eddie Izzard, Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi. Then again, it's a remake of The Munsters that's not called the The Munsters, and there are only so many days of Halloween spirit left.

The one-hour premiere special of Mockingbird Lane is on tonight at 8 PM on NBC, opposite the Season 5 premiere of Kitchen Nightmares on Fox. Also on tonight are the 300th episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation at 9 PM on Teen Nick and the series premiere of Health Inspectors at 10:30 PM on Food Network. On TLC tonight is the Season 3 premiere of Say Yes to the Dress at 9 PM, followed by a second episode at 9:30 PM and then the one-hour special Say Yes to the Cure: Lori's Fight at 10 PM.
