The Good Wife: The Good Wife is a drama starring Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies as a wife and mother who must assume full responsibility for her family and re-enter the workforce after her husband's very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail.
Katie says...I like Julianna Margulies, but I already saw this show, when it was called THE NEWS.
Three Rivers: Three Rivers is a medical drama that goes inside the emotionally complex lives of organ donors—
Katie says...I'm going to stop you right there, CBS. Could you not come up with a MORE depressing show? No, thanks.
Trauma: Like an adrenaline shot to the heart, Trauma is an intense, action-packed look at one of the most dangerous medical professions in the world: first responder paramedics.
Katie says...I'll pass on the adrenaline shot to the heart. Plus, Trauma is a terrible name for a show! I think I'll settle in this evening with a mug of tea, my latest knitting project, and a new episode of Trauma.
Mercy: You haven't seen inside a hospital until you've seen it through the eyes of those who know it best: its nurses
Katie says...I realize NBC is trying to fill the void left by ER, but another medical drama? Pass.
Fox has very few new shows planned, aside from Glee, and you know how I feel about that. (Cue "Don't Stop Believin'.")
Hank: Sometimes scaling back is the best way to get ahead. Wall Street legend Hank Pryor (Kelsey Grammer) and his wife Tilly have been living the high life in New York City. That is until Hank is forced out of his CEO job and has to move his family back home to the small town of River Bend.
Katie says...I don't believe the world needs another Kelsey Grammer sitcom.
The Deep End: Sterling Law is one of L.A.'s most prestigious law firms. Each year it recruits four new young lawyers from the finest law schools worldwide. It will nurture, guide and shape these recruits into the best damned lawyers they can possibly be -- or else.
Katie says...I admit, the synopsis made me laugh. But I'm pretty sure that wasn't ABC's intention.
Flash Forward: A mysterious global event causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and seventeen seconds, and each person sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now. When they wake up, everyone is left wondering if what they saw will actually happen.
Katie says...This show is being described as "a companion show to Lost." I have a hard enough time keeping up with Lost, much less a companion show!
V: Today, the world woke up to find spaceships over every major city. The Visitors claim to have come in peace, bringing gifts of medical miracles and technological breakthroughs. They promise to do no harm. They're lying.
Katie says...I read something that called V "Grey's Anatomy in space." And that's all I need to know.
That's all I have for now. I really didn't find many new shows that I'm excited about, aside from the aforementioned Glee. I'll probably give Cougar Town a try. Maybe Community and Eastwick.
