I got an advanced look at some of the shows ABC has on its Fall line-up. Fan favorites “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Desperate Housewives”, Ugly Betty”, “Boston Legal” and “Dancing With The Stars” all return next season. However, there are some good shows on the horizon that could strengthen ABC’s primetime ratings. Here are a couple of them that have hit potential.
You have to mention “Private Practice”, the “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff. It has a huge shot at getting fans to tune in each week. The show stars Dr. Addison Shepard (Kate Walsh). She moves from Seattle to Los Angeles. 21 million people earlier this month watched the special “Grey’s Anatomy” that served as the show’s pilot. It’ll air Wednesdays at 9pm.
“Big Shots” follows the lives of four party-hard CEO’s. You’ll know all of the lead actors. Dylan McDermott, Christopher Titus, Joshua Malina and Michael Vartan star in the show. “Big Shots” is a comedy-drama that promises to be one of the big fall hits. The upfront delivered laughs even though I didn’t know the storyline.
Peter Krause stars in “Dirty Sexy Money” as attorney Nick George. When his father dies, he takes over his law practice and the wealthy family his father represented. Here’s the problem, Nick has a conscience and the family, the Darlings, doesn’t. He has to get them out of their problems including human trafficking, illegitimate children, and affairs. Donald Sutherland and William Baldwin also star. This show is already picking up all sorts of buzz on the ‘net.
