Big News of the Week: Pilots Getting Ordered: There are still a few show announced last spring that have yet to premiere but networks are already ordered up a couple pilots this week. NBC looks to be keeping with their sci-fi leaning of late with 17th Precinct from Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) about cops in a world of magic (Moore may be busy next fall because he is also working on a coast guard show for NBC and a Wild Wild West reboot for CBS).
While over at Fox they will try again to list by boycott against the network which I have not watch since the series finale of Arrested Development by ordering up a show by Party Down mastermind Rob Thomas called Little in Common about Little League families. If a perky blonde umpire who solves crime on the side is written into the show I may have to lift my boycott. One thing that won’t lift my boycott is another show by the dude who created Heroes who for some reason is getting another show with Touch about an autistic kid who can tell the future. Alrighty.
Then on the basic cable side of thing, USA continued its run of cheesiest show titles on television by ordering to series A Legal Mind, about a cooperate lawyer (natch) who recruits a brilliant but lazy college dropout, and Necessary Roughness which sadly is not a reboot of the awesome Scott Backula / Kathy Ireland nineties flick.

Video of the Week: I love Lily Kane but, much like her buddy Veronica Mars, she needs to fire her agent quick because she has been in some horrible movies like Dear John which may be the worst movie ever in the history of cinema. And her latest maybe eclipse even Dear John in terms of unwatchability with Red Riding Hood. Does the world really need a full length movie based on a children’s short story sen through the eyes of the Twilight director? (SPOILER ALERT!: no.)
