• What will you be watching next season? Tom Gliatto picks the most intriguing newly announced network series
NBC Christian Slater (below) plays a family man who realizes his personality is split—he's also a cold-blooded spy guy—on My Own Worst Enemy
. Who can't identify with that? The great Molly Shannon is Selma Blair's mom in the sitcom Kath & Kim
ABC Life on Mars
takes a detective and throws him back in time to the '70s. (Suggested cameo: Jimmy Carter!) Ashton Kutcher
is one of the producers for Opportunity Knocks
(below), a reality game show that sets up shop on a family's lawn.
CBS Unfussily ravishing Elizabeth Reaser (Grey's Anatomy
) goes on a romantic quest on The Ex List
(below). Rufus Sewell, a Brit of the sexy-brooder school, is a scientist-crimefighter on Eleventh Hour
FOX A new puzzle from J.J. Abrams (Lost
), Fringe (below) has Joshua Jackson and others trying to fathom a freaky chain of events. Do Not Disturb
(working title), a sitcom about a hotel, stars the very funny Niecy Nash.
CW The home to Gossip Girl
seems to have found its groove: fantasies about overindulged teens. 90210
(right), a revamp of Beverly Hills, 90210
, is conceptually ridiculous (the original only went off the air in 2000!) but inspired. Surviving the Filthy Rich
is about two Hiltonian sisters and their tutor.
