SECRET MILLIONAIRE - This show actually briefly ran on Fox about 18 months ago. ABC has resurrected the premise, where real-life millionaires go undercover in poor neighborhoods and find people worthy to give at least $100,000 of their own money.
BODY OF PROOF - Dana Delany left Desperate Housewives and now stars in this, as a sardonic medical examiner. It's supposed to contain a lot about her private life so it's not just a procedural each week. Jeri Ryan (Star Trek Voyager, Boston Public, Shark) also stars.
BLUE BLOODS - Tom Selleck plays a cop whose two sons are also cops (Donnie Wahlberg, Will Estes). Supposed to have as much family drama as crime story.
OUTLAW - Jimmy Smits plays a Supreme Court justice who resigns to go back into private practice to try controversial cases across the country.
Well, it warms my heart that the networks aren't giving up on Friday the way they have Saturdays. The Good Guys is a fun show but its low ratings when it debuted tells me it won't survive too long in the fall. Low expectations abound on this night. I have faith Blue Bloods will stick. I do see this being Medium's final season, and CSI: NY's. Outlaw has a fantasy premise, but Smits might be the guy who can pull it off. I have no feel on ABC's slate. Overall it looks like CBS is #1, Fox is #2 (thanks to American Idol), and ABC is hanging on to #3 thanks to Dancing with the Stars, but NBC is poised to challenge them.
