NBC Fall Schedule Madness!!!

9-10 p.m. "HEROES" This is NBC: of course this is an on-again, off-again unrequited love story set in a sandwich shop.

8-9 p.m. "FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS" We admit it: this is a lame TV ripoff of a movie. Featuring Gary Coleman as the Billy Bob Thornton character.
9-10 p.m. "KIDNAPPED" In an effort to copy Fox's success with "24" and "Prison Break", we tried to hire away some of the magic. All we got was a college dropout PA and he gave us "Kidnapped", a slower than real time, flashback-packed 22 episode committment that details 60 seconds of a bank vice-president's kidnapping.

9-9:30 p.m. "20 GOOD YEARS" Maudlin dramedy that starts with a guy having a heart attack where every episode is a flashback to some event in the guy's 20 year marriage. "American Beauty" meets "How I Met Your Mother."
9:30-10 p.m. "30 ROCK" This is actually a typo and NBC accidentally bought an entire season of "3rd Rock From the Sun", again.

9-10 p.m. "STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP" We needed to reclaim the Cheers/Cosby/Seinfeld/Friends/Will&Grace Must-See magic, and we did: a black retired pitcher turned bar owner moonlights in his own bar as a comedian who lives with his gay sister and their friends across the hall. Come to Studio 60 to witness the magic!
10-11 p.m. "ER"/("THE BLACK DONNELLYS" in January 2007) Uncomfortable racial jokes that miss the mark because the show has 27 executive producers.

7-8 p.m. "FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA" Highlights of the entire day's NFL games set to trance music.
8-11 p.m. SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL You might think this is going to be a weekly football game, but it's really a 17 week (three hours a week) miniseries about gay caballeros in Guadalahara.
