Hmm.
It's a toss up...
Knight Rider (2008) - do I really need a reason? No David Hasslehoff and what they hell did they do to Kitt???
My Own Worst Enemy - umm. Christian Slater resorting to starring in a TV show should be the first sign of doom. See Geena Davis and her TV escapades.
I wish 90210 would be first, but, alas, I think that the viewing public is far too easily seduced by rich youth frolicking in bathing suits.
My $.02.

while I'd like it to be 90210, given the CW's fans' apparent fascination with the rich and idle [i.e. gossip girl] it's highly doubtful
as for which i actually think it will be, my vote goes for Gary unmarried, sounds like a bad twist on two and a half men, really.

I'm going with Kath and Kim and My Own Worst Enemy. Breaks my heart because I love Christian Slater but do they really have an appeal?

I'm going to have to agree with Gary Unmarried as the first or among the first. It seems new sitcoms are very iffy - even Back to You which was pretty cute didn't make it last season, while The Big Bang Theory did which I don't think was better. Sitcoms are very touchy these days! My next vote goes for My Own Worst Enemy - even if it's not the worst of the worst, I don't think the storyline can make it very far at all.

My votes would bee Kath and Kim and Crusoe. The former just looks like more white trash comedy...and worse than what we've already got...and the latter, well, what can I say? It's based on a novel everyone knows the end of, and after LOST, trying to set anything on an island can't be a good idea. We'll see.
Also, My Own Worst Enemy will need some SERIOUS twists and originality to make it past this season.

Crusoe looks horrid. Really fake, horrid acting from a new comer and not very pleasing to the eye ifyou ask me.

I'm going to tell you right now it's going to be Fringe I've seen the pilot, OMFG it's X-Files meets Alias meets the best horror flick you will ever see. My vote goes to Valentine Inc. Here's the "Premise" if you haven't read it somewhere already. The Valentine family is sent down to Los Angeles from Mount Olympus, using magic to make sure true love continues to blossom on earth. Grace (Aphrodite), asks romance novelist Kate Providence for help, which angers her son Danny (Eros). Also, the Valentines try to spark love between a pair of long-time friends who are soulmates. Personally I will NOT be watching this disaster.

ok knightrider i think will be cancled as they have changed it so much from the pilot, i mean a car that transforms into a pickup = bad idea.they also have changed the entire look of the show, they should have stuck with the idea from the pilot as i know they will have plugged all the loopholes to make kitt invincible to all computer related attacks, i liked the idea of nano technoligy and a hybrid feul system (solar + a 5litre v8 :D )using real world calulations...with a twist.
90210come on there now flogging a dead horse with a dead horse, that show sucked back then and it sucks now, there just jumping on the OC bandwagon so thats a bad idea
My Own Worst Enemypeople always slate slater but give him a chance with this one, i live in the uk so i dont know anything about this but always remember, the underdog is always a show that gets mega popular before getting canceled (remember farscape & enterprise)
life on mars
EVERYSINGLE uk made show thats remade for the american veiwing public ALWAYS gets canned, you dont see the uk remaking american tv shows for the uk public, we tried once or twice and it failed hard, it failed so hard that the fail train failed to hit the fail wall with a fail nuke on the front of it, life on mars i sense will be a HUGE fail.
Valentine, Incfail, any show based on romance = fail
Easy Moneythis could be a ratings winner, this could be the new "the shield"
Worst Weeka friends wannabe
Opportunity Knocksthis is an old uk tv game show remade for the american market.its just another x-factor / american idol wannabe show which means fail

The MentalistCSI wannabe = fail
Privilegedsee 90210
Fringeseems a big budget pilot = a huge change if the show gets picked up
Stylistaamericas next model spinoff
Do Not Disturbseems YET ANOTHER newsroom comedy
Eleventh Hoursee "life on mars comment"
Kath and Kima remake of a remake, this show is a remake of will and grace which was remade for astrualia and now its remade for the american merket
The Ex Listlooks like it will last 1 series
Crusoea lost wannabe
as you can tell from the list a lot of these shows are just remakes from other countrys or old 80's early 90 shows brought back only to get classed as suckyness

as an Australian i have to tell you that Kath and Kim is hilarious. It's filmed just around the corner from my house. But honestly, I don't think it is something Americans will like.and seriously, why are the making a new 90210? didn't torture people enough with the last one?only reason i would watch it at all is because Shenae Grimes is in it and i am a fan of Degrassi. I don't know, maybe they will manage to make it interesting and not to trashy. Let's hope so

I'm going to stake my bets on Kath and Kim and Crusoe. Also My Own Worst Enemy. Basically everything new on NBC. It all looks awful.
Somebody needs to get fired over there...

I can't see Crusoe surviving at all, they are aiming the show at a very small and exclusive audience!

Knight Rider was on my tv as I cruised SideReel last night and it S U C K E D!! OMG it was bad. Really bad. Like, they napomed Kit and it elevated the temperature inside and almost roasted the actors. That went on for like 25 minutes, just Kit saying "more power to the life support" and the actors saying "great, maybe we will live" for 25 minutes. That show needs to be cancelled, badly! Do not watch.
