This weekend’s ABC premieres made it clear audiences prefer their dramas soapy on Sunday nights.
- Although Desperate Housewives (19.3 million viewers, 7.4/17 share in 18-49 demo) and Brothers & Sisters (13.3 million, 5.1/13) were both down from last year’s premieres (23% and 15% respectively), both shows earned their best numbers since Nov. 26th.
- Cold Case (13.5 million, 3.4/8) and Shark (11.4 million, 2.7/7) did improve upon last week’s premieres, though Shark’s numbers were lower compared to last year’s time slot holder (Without a Trace).
- The Simpsons (8.4 million, 4.2/11), King of the Hill (7.2 million, 3.5/9) and Family Guy (7.9 million, 4.2/10) all underperformed their numbers from last Sunday.

The 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast. Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)? Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)? Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony?
What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, we were still handing out trophies to stars from Will & Grace and The West Wing (those shows feel so five-years ago now). Today, we welcome a new crop of nominees including Ugly Betty and 30 Rock for Best Comedy. Last year, we were entertained by an always-hilarious Conan O’Brien. This year, we are threatened by a song and dance number from this year’s host, Ryan Seacrest. Last August, 24 snagged the award for Best Drama. This September, it’s not even nominated (yet somehow Boston Legal is).
I think it would be safe to assume the voters would predictably (and respectfully) shower The Sopranos with honors, but I’ll still be crossing my fingers for an upset sometime tonight. We’ll need something to talk about tomorrow…
Here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the neglected West Coast!
- Prison Break (FOX, 8pm): Season premiere. What will happen to Dr. Sara Tancredi?
- Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm): Special Monday-night premiere (will regularly air on Weds/Fridays).
- K-Ville (FOX, 9pm): Series premiere
- Saving Grace (TNT, 10pm): Season finale
- Weeds (Showtime, 10pm): Mary-Kate Olsen will begin a ten-episode arc tonight.

Despite having a Tivo and another DVR, I know that a new television season can take some serious planning. When will your favorite shows start? What days are they now on? Which programming ‘conflicts’ will you have to resolve? Will you need to buy another TV???
Hopefully our detailed scheduling guide can assist you in the weeks to come. We have compiled information from five different networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and CW) and included the days, times and premiere dates for this fall’s shows.
