Eleventh Hour

By BRIAN LOWRY (Variety)

At first blush, "Eleventh Hour" is just CBS' way of wedding "CSI" to "House"-- having a brilliant scientist try to decipher intricate mysteries and solve crimes. The formula, however, is more convoluted than that, as the show faithfully clones a British series by the same name, then creeps up the tone to be more reminiscent of "The X-Files" and expands upon the sex-appeal/gender-reversal quotient like a latter-day "The Avengers". Add to that a "CSI" lead-in and Jerry Bruckheimer's slick production values and it equals a pretty nondescript "Hour" -- one where time doesn't exactly fly by.
