Review of the 2010 Fall Primetime Television Lineup.

 

Review of the 2010 Fall Prime Time Line Up

 

  So what do the main networks have in store for us this fall? Read below to find out.

 

Monday Night Primetime Lineup

  

  ABC  Dancing with the Stars, Castle.

  

  CBS  How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men, Mike and Molly,

           Hawaii Five-0.

  

  CW 90210, Gossip Girl.

 

  FOX House, Lone Star.

  

  NBC Chuck, The Event.

 

  We predict that CBS will be the winner for Monday nights with the return of some strong comedies, and the fact that they will siphon off some of the fans of ABC's Lost with the appearance of Daniel Dae Kim (Jin Kwon on Lost) on Hawaii Five-0 as Detective Chin Ho Kelly.

 

Tuesday Night Primetime Lineup

  

  ABC No Ordinary Family, Dancing with the Stars Results Show, Detroit 1-8-7.

  

  CBS NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Good Wife.

 

  CW  One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected.

 

  FOX Glee, Raising Hope, Running Wilde.

  

  NBC Biggest Loser, Parenthood

 

  We predict that ABC will be the winner for Tuesday nights with people tuning into the results show for dancing with the Stars and another siphoning effect with No Ordinary Family as it stars Michael Chiklis from FX's The Shield (Detective Vic Mackey on The Shield).

 

Wednesday Night Primetime Lineup

 

  ABC  The Middle, Better With You, Modern Family, Cougar Town, The Whole Truth.

 

  CBS  Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Defenders.

 

  CW   Americia's Next Top Model, Hellcats.

 

  FOX Lie to Me, Hell's Kitchen.

 

  NBC Undercover, Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: Los Angeles.

 

  Another win predicted for ABC's comedy lineup with the return of last season's hits Modern Family and Cougar Town. Still scratching our heads on why NBC canceled Law and Order due to slacking ratings only to create the same exact show but moving the location from New York to Los Angles.

 

Thursday Night Primetime Lineup

 

  ABC My Generation, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice.

 

  CBS Big Bang Theory, $#*! My Dad Says, CSI, The Mentalist.

 

  CW  Vampire Diaries, Nikita.

 

  FOX Bones, Fringe.

 

  NBC Community, 30 Rock, The Office, Outsourced, The Apprentice.

 

  NBC will take Thursday nights but how much longer can aging shows like 30 Rock, The Office, and The Apprentice hold up? Our pick for first show to be canceled this year is $#*! My Dad Says from CBS, yes there was a lot of controversy about this show, but controversy only does not a good show make in the long term.

 

Friday Night Primetime Lineup

 

  ABC Secret Millionaire, Body of Proof, 20/20.

 

  CBS Medium, CSI: NY, Blue Bloods.

 

  CW   Smallville, Super Natural.

 

  FOX Human Target, Good Guys,

 

  NBC Why Do You Think You Are Special, Dateline NBC, Outlaw.

 

  This was the hardest day to predict, the main networks were not giving us anything really strong to work with. We wish that the CW had the power to draw in more viewers for great shows like Super Natural but it's still considered a bottom rung network. We will give Friday to CBS but really we think you will see the biggest changes to the schedule for this night amongst most of the networks before the fall season is finished.

 

 

Saturday Night Prime Time Lineup

 

  ABC College Football.

 

  CBS Crimetime Saturday, 48 Hours Mystery.

 

  CW  No offerings from the network itself.

 

  FOX Cops, America's Most Wanted.

 

  NBC Repeats of other shows.

 

NBC and the CW really phoned in the lineup for this day considering it unimportant which could be a mistake. We think with the continuous gaining in popularity of College Football that ABC will be the winner of Saturday nights but it would not take much if one of the networks stood up and tried with a great show for Saturday nights to topple them. What the Networks are really saying is go ahead and watch your DVR its Saturday Night.

 

Sunday Prime Time Lineup

 

  ABC America's Funniest Home Videos, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters.

 

  CBS 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, CSI: Miami.

 

  CW  Were not even going to try... the other networks are too powerful :(

 

  FOX The OT, The Simpsons, The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, American Dad.

 

  NBC Football Night in America, Sunday Night Football.

 

  In America football is an institution and it will remain so for years to come, the network that has the NFL contract to show games will continue to be the winner on Sunday nights for the foreseeable future, so the win goes to NBC. At least FOX is trying with their lineup and we salute them for the edgy animated series that make up the Sunday primetime line up.

 

  The final Tally

ABC:3

CBS:2

CW:0

FOX:0

NBC:2

 

  This critical article is based on opinion, but we shall see, it's a shame that none of the networks will try a daring concept like the now ended Lost, and the recent attempts (Flash Forward and Happy Town) that they did not stick with, may hurt an attempt at that style of show in the future, as no one wants to get involved in a show week to week that may end suddenly.
