We may be tired of Supernatural, but we'll never say no to a reunion.
The third day of upfronts brought us the endurance test that is the CBS presentation, held for the umpteenth year in freezing-cold Carnegie Hall. And once again, I was bemused by how defensive the executives sounded while touting the most successful network on television. CBS has the most popular drama (CSI), the most popular comedy (Two and a Half Men) and the most popular new show of the 2008-09 season (The Mentalist). And yet there's this undercurrent of resentment towards their lower-rated, but far "cooler," competitors that's actually fascinating from an armchair psychologist's perspective.
It's pilot season, which means there's a lot of buzz about people we like getting cast in shows that may or may not ever make it to air. The studios are busy ordering pilots to see if they'll fly, and then selecting a rare few to actually make it to their lineups. But we're hopeful that a few of these shows get picked up, mostly because they feature some of our favorite stars, so they stand out from the sea of medical, legal and cop pilots out there. Here are the ones we'd most like to see hitting the airwaves next fall (or even winter).
