    Edit: sorry people spoiler now added.

    With the three-month-old WGA strike finally over (yay!), the networks are feverishly finalizing plans to salvage what's left of the current TV season. At the same time, I've been quietly picking at my moles to get a preview of those plans — the results of which appear in chart form below.

    One good thing came out of it: Dexter is going to be replayed on CBS in primetime. Even if it's watered down, it's a hell of a lot better than most of the drek that's on.

    Battlestar Galactica: Fraking 09 for the second half most likely.

    Big Bang Theory: Yay. Great show.

    Bionic Woman: Cancelled? Hmmm...it started strong but then started to falter.

    Heroes: At least the ending of volume 2 got done.

    Jericho: CBS has said that if these 7 episodes get more viewers than season 1, they will look at ordering a full season 2.

    Journeyman: My favorite show of the season. There is an attempt to save the show currently under way though.

    The Office: Yay, more episodes.

    Rules Of Engagement: Yay, more episodes.

    Smallville: Good, it's gonna get the rest of the season shot. With this possibly being the last season, it would suck to not get finished.

    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Great show. Hope it gets picked up for a second season.

    Two And A Half Men: Yay, more episodes.

    EDIT: I see no mention of when Family Guy is expected to start again though [​IMG]

    EDIT 2: The 4400 has not been picked up for a 5th season by the way.

    4400 and The Dead Zone were both canceled a while ago.

    ugh, new KITT. A Mustang GT 500 can look so good, but 2 spoilers? They've added way too much "kit"! (oh, such a pun the world has never known!)

    There is no start. It's a TV movie designed as a backdoor pilot. Meaning if the TV movie does well, then they will make it into a show.
