What's Coming

TVGuide.com has a pretty good list of thumbnail sketches about what new shows might be on the dial next fall or winter. Of course, just because a network orders a pilot doesn't mean that the show will make it onto the air.

What I find interesting is how many fantasy-related shows that may make it, considering that many shows of that genre ("No Ordinary Family," "The Cape," "V" etc.) have struggled this season. I guess no one can accuse the networks of not trying something different.

Here's the list: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Pilots-Wonder-Woman-1030441.aspx

What of the new crop has you excited?

WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: You know, I may have been a little hard on "Mr. Sunshine" (ABC, 9:30 p.m.) when it first came out. I've managed to get a few laughs out of it the past couple of weeks. It's not the best sitcom on the air, but it fills that half-hour gap nicely behind "Modern Family." True, I'd much rather have "Cougar Town" back, but this other sitcom with a former "Friends" star isn't bad either. It's new, as is "Off The Map" at 10 p.m.

With two hours of "American Idol" (Fox, 8 p.m.) tonight, there's not too much else new scripted on the networks, except for "Survivor" (CBS, 8 p.m.) and "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" (CBS, 10 p.m.)

Cable, as usual, has the best offering with "Justified" (FX, 10 p.m.)
