WQ 09 Oct 2005 With anywhere from 1 to 7 episodes having aired so far with the new shows [except yet-to-air "Freddie"], here's the final tally from me as to how well or poorly each has fared on average. Some shows may've initially gotten higher ratings from me with their pilots, but their subsequent episodes are what dragged them down to the numbers you see here below. Scoring is from 0 to 10, with anything beyond 8 being an extreme rarity in my book. Scoring is also basically based on two combined factors: the degree to which I look forward to watching a show tempered by how well its premise is executed, in and of itself and not necessarily in comparison to other shows. Simply put, I guess you can say that if I were running a network that needed some holes to fill and the 31 fall series below made up the development slate from which I had to choose my fall lineup for my network, then I'd pick all those shows scoring above a 0, which in this case adds up to 8 series amounting to 6 hours to fill - which sounds just about right for a typical network fall lineup. ABC 0 - Commander in Chief 0 - Freddie [yet to air, but the promos alone are killing it] 0 - Invasion 0 - Night Stalker 0 - Hot Properties Avg: 0 CBS 0 - How I Met Your Mother 4 - Out of Practice 0 - Close to Home 5 - Criminal Minds 5 - Ghost Whisperer 5 - Threshold Avg: 3.1 NBC 0 - Surface 2 - My Name Is Earl 0 - The Apprentice: Martha Stewart 0 - E-Ring 0 - Three Wishes 0 - Inconceivable Avg: 0.03 FOX 0 - The War at Home 3 - Kitchen Confidential 8 - Prison Break [actually 7.5, but I'm rounding things out] 0 - Bones 0 - Head Cases 0 - Reunion 0 - Killer Instinct Avg: 1.5 UPN 0 - Sex, Love and Secrets 4 - Everybody Loves Chris 0 - Love, Inc. Avg: 1.3 WB 0 - Just Legal 0 - Supernatural 0 - Related 0 - Twins Avg: 0 Overall New Series Average: .098 out of 10. Next season, please.
