  1. The new shows Unforgettable, Person of Interest and A Gifted Man sound quite interesting and worth a look.

    I’m glad to see the renewal of The Good Wife, which is one of the best series to hit our screens for years.

    The various CSIs, The Mentalist and NCIS are good for those times when one simply wants to zone-out in front of the TV without expending too much mental effort. And we all have times like that!

    So, overall, a pretty good schedule from CBS.

  2. Boring. there is nothing on CBS this fall season absolutely borring. NBC, ABC & FOX have much better content. The big bang theory is the only show to me that sounds good at least from the commedy genre.

  3. I was worried the good wife was going to be shunted to Friday (aka Death night)…but Sunday is much better….love that show so much, I really hope Alicia hooks up with Will in the season finale…

  4. Hope “person of interest” is a hit for Michael Emerson. I think Ben Linus turned out to be one of the best developed characters of Lost and Emerson was terrific in that role.
