Complete Fall Schedule

All of the major networks have released fall
schedules so far. I began compiling them into a
single comparison document, but Ain’t
It Cool News
already did that. It looks like
we’re down to four genre programs.
Smallville is up against Lost on
Wednesdays, and Enterprise is up against
Joan Of Arcadia on Fridays. My weekly fall
reviews will be of Smallville.

    Enterprise vs. Joan of Arcadia: sorry Joan, T’Pol comes first.

    CSI vs. The Apprentice vs. Tru Calling: that looks like a pretty hot spot. Of course I’ll be watching Tru.

      Well since my local fox affiliate carries Enterprise on Sunday nights, its going to be Joan of Arcadia for me (if I’m home). I’m not sure what I’d do if i had to choose between the two though. Probably hook up the second VCR.

    Hard times?
    Perhaps I missed something, but it doens’t look like there’s plans for any new sci-fi this season. While there’s some returning veterans, there’s not even a sacraficial lamb for FOX to cancel out of spite. What happened?

      It’s all very simple. This is the age of reality TV, which is incredibly cheap AND produces great ratings. Sci-fi tv, on the other hand, is probably the most expensive thing out there. That was the main reason Angel, which posted very decent ratings for the WB, was cancelled. Even with *good* ratings, it was just too expensive to run.

      Unfortunately, we are stuck with the idiots who enjoy reality TV. The fad will just have to wear itself out.

        Or, maybe we just need sci-fi reality TV :-)

        • Really Extreme Makeover: Contests not only recieve massive plastic surgery, but their choice of robotic limbs or gene therapy.
        • ALICE Millionaire: Fifteen men compete to marry a multi-millionaire Heiress. What they don’t know is that she isn’t actually an millionaire heiress, but is instead a chatbot.
        • Survivor ISS: Now, instead of compete for food, they compete for oxygen.
        • Who wants to be Cloned: 1,000 women are implanted with a cloned embroy. But which one will actually come to term?
        • American Crackpot: Psychics compete vie for a national tour and book deal while being rated by America’s phone calls and mocked by irascible judge James Randi.
        • The Grad Student: Sixteen contests from all walks of life compete for the opportunity of a lifetime: a letter of recommendation from Stephen Hawking.

        • Oddly enough, I’d watch that.

        I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: The main reason Angel was dropped was because it wasn’t wholly owned by Time/Warner/WB like Smallville and Charmed. WB got jack in terms of ancillary profits (DVDs, comic books, trading cards and whatever else is sold with images from the TV show), making Angel an even more expensive proposition. This is why UPN (Paramount) can afford to keep flogging Enterprise (and Voyager before it) and why Fox kept X-Files going beyond it’s time – they know they’ll make a ton on the back end.

        Had Angel started out on Fox (and they managed not to cancel it within the first three seasons – a dicey concept, I know), there probably wouldn’t be any question about renewing Angel for as long as they could make the deal(s) with the actors and ME. They’d probably have been BEGGING for two more seasons, let alone one. Unfortunately, Fox probably didn’t want to take the risk of moving Angel to their network because it so often doesn’t work out in the ratings game.

    What the heck is LOST?
    From what I read it’s not the Lost in Space remake, so what is it?

      A plane crashes on an island filled with creatures that

      Alias.

        Oh, I thought it was that reality TV show “Lost” coming back after it got canned a few years ago. Guess I’ll actually check it out then.

          I thought the same thing. Now I wish I could retract my previous post about there being no new sci-fi this season. Of course, I would wish that we could do better than one show, but I’ll take what I can get.
