Maybe it was just the heat, but I could have sworn it was a flush of excitement I felt as I looked at this week's schedule and counted four new series. But the flush passed—or maybe a low pressure front moved in—as I realized that two of them were heavy, heady documentary shows. Another was a new entertainment series, but it is on the schedule now because somebody at ABC didn't think it was good enough to be on this fall. Uh-oh. That leaves us with one last series, one last hope...a revival of Family Feud. Suddenly, it's getting cold, very cold. Who hit that button? I feel a nuclear winter coming on.
