TV Tonight: ABC's New Monday

TV Tonight: ABC's New Monday


With The Bachelor done for the year and Dancing with the Stars nearing the end of its season, ABC is introducing a revamped Monday lineup tonight. Samantha Who? moves up half an hour to 9 p.m., followed by the season premiere of Notes From The Underbelly at 9:30. October Road will hold down the 10 p.m. slot. (Dance Wars, the Dancing with the Stars spinoff, will take over the 8 p.m. hour in January.)

Being paired with Samantha Who?, the season's one true breakout comedy, should give Notes a lift for its second season. I was utterly ambivalent about the show when it premiered last spring, but I did like the performances of Jennifer Westfeldt and Peter Cambor as the couple preparing for their first child, and I always got a kick out of Rachael Harris as the single-and-fabulous Cooper — though I wished she'd gotten more to do in the episodes I watched. Did any of you stick with it?

Meanwhile, October Road gets another chance tonight to prove it can hold down a time slot after its dismal ratings last Thursday. Maybe people were confused that ABC promoted that episode as a "sneak peek" and tonight's episode as the season premiere; I know I was.

To watch promos for both the Notes premiere and tonight's October Road, just

oooh gotcha. for some reason i thought they were both scratched, but i think i'm on "bad show" alert because of the strike and eager to jump to that conclusion. INTERESTING.

ktacce — they did both get renewed last year, though they might not have come back as quickly if not for the strike.

Indeed, I thought October Road was premiering tonight...weird. I would have watched last week if I knew it were coming on. My schedule tonight looks like: 8:00 Nothing 9:00 Heroes 10:00 Journeyman/October Road (Might have to watch October Road online)

Were they planning on bringing back those shows before the writers strike, do you know? I didn't like either of them last year.
