Fall TV Preview - Thursday

New Shows:

FLASHFORWARD (ABC) - For 2 minutes and 17 seconds, the whole world blacks out and sees six months into the future, where they see that millions of people are dead and cities have been destroyed. Joseph Fiennes plays a FBI agent trying to figure out what's going on, and for good measure, two Lost vets (Sonya Walger, Dominic Monaghan) are in the cast. The first episode is supposed to be epic.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (TheCW) - Another Lost vet - Ian Somerholder - stars as a bad-boy vampire intefering with his younger vampire brother's high-school dating. Sounds like it's aiming for the Twilight crowd.

COMMUNITY (NBC) - Joel McHale plays a lawyer who's ordered back to school after it comes to light he never really went to law school. There he hooks up with some strange college students, including Chevy Chase. This is supposed to rival Modern Family for Best New Comedy of the season.

The Saturday Night Live Thursday Specials will only last six weeks, at which point Community will move to 8/7 and 30 Rock will return to follow The Office.
