CBS (8-9 p.m. ET)

This new series attempts to byte into the popularity of WarGames and the computer craze. Matthew (Little House on the Prairie) Laborteaux is an electronics genius who uses a talking computer called Ralf to help solve crimes. Laborteaux is personable, but the plot does not compute. This one is indeed for the kids. (Premiere)
