Without a trace moves to Sunday to make room for Spike Lee's show "The Shark" which will star James Woods.

So what will Lucy Lawless do now that they've cancelled their CBS Sunday Night Movie franchise? Seemed like she was in damn near all of the "scary" ones (Bats, etc.)

[grumble]So they're killing Without a Trace off already?[/grumble]

I guess The Class has potential, if nothing else the potential flashback as comedic device that I assume they'll use should be interesting.

Jericho sounds like they're trying to get their hands on a Lost type show... yeah, good luck with that.

They should just change CBS to CSI and get it over with.

Anthony LaPaglia was in the booth at halftime during the Champions League final today...maybe he's going to start a new career as a soccer broadcaster. ;)

I'll say this...I'm more interested in the new shows that CBS is putting out than anything that ABC has come up with, or NBC (with the exception of Sorkin's show). Yes, that might be down to the names, but if I hear that Ray Liotta or John Wells is involved with something, I'll at least give it a shot. And Jericho sounds like an interesting premise. I didn't think Lost at all when I read the description, but maybe that's just me.

My DVR doesn't really care which day shows come on.  It's like magic... it records them and I watch them when I have time.

The only show I watch live (and by live I *actually* mean I start watching at 9:15, so that I ff through the commercials... yet still basically end at 10:00) is Lost.

I don't think that there's ANY network TV shows I watch live anymore. If I'm watching TV in the evening, it's either (a) a sporting event, or (b) TV shows from earlier in the week that I'm catching up on.

I love having a DVR.

Agreed, we watch absolutely nothing when it's actually on.  Not even Lost.  We usually watch something else while it's on or at the very least start it 20 minutes in so we can avoid commercials.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think CSI jumped the shark in it's last 5 minutes or so last night.  When that kind of show focuses in too tight on personal stuff it just starts losing it's glow.

ER turned into a soap opera after about the first season and a half, I was amazed CSI has gone this long.  I'm amazed no more, they finally gave in.

Exactly. I'm watching to see these people work. I don't really care about the backstory.
