Fall TV Preview - Tuesday

New Shows:

V (ABC) - The 1980's alien-invasion show gets rebooted, with Scott Wolf (Party of Five, The Nine) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) as the humans suspicious of the human-looking "visitors" led by Firefly's Morena Baccarin.

NCIS: LOS ANGELES (CBS) - It's all a plot by CBS to fill their schedule with acronymed titles. This spin-off is said to be a little less ensemble-y and more focussed on the two leads (Chris O'Donnell, LL Cool J) who spend most of the time undercover.

MELROSE PLACE (TheCW) - Tuesdays for The CW look just like Fox circa 1994, with this revisit following 90210. The old apartment building is back, lived in by a new crop of twentysomethings, but old favorites like Laura Leighton, Daphne Zuniga, Thomas Calabro and Josie Bissett have agreed to show up. Katie Cassidy and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz are among the new generation.

THE FORGOTTEN (ABC) - Christian Slater leads a group of amateur detectives who work on finding the ID's of John Doe murder victims. Actually, Slater was a replacement for the original lesser-known lead (Rupert Penry-Jones).

THE GOOD WIFE (CBS) - Julianna Margulies plays a wife standing by her man (Chris Noth), a high-powered State Attorney brought down in a call-girl scandal. Now he's behind bars and she's gone back to practicing law to pay the bills. Josh Charles and Christine Baranski co-star.
