Gee, I wonder who she's talking about. He blubbered like a baby when he lost, ha. Did you know that Russell's second game was already filmed before the first game aired? So those people in the second game didn't know him or his backstabbing ways. But this time around his tribemates did, so he was the first one they got rid of. Now if Rob's tribemates would only wise up the same way...

Rita, I haven't seen that list of fall shows. Doesn't anything look good? Something?

Ah, I wondered why those people in Russell's second outing kept trusting him. That's why he was able to get away with it a second time.

Is Kent, the Goth guy on TAR, trying to be nicer this time around? A few times it looked as if he was literally biting his tongue to keep from saying something.

Yes, he does seem to have learned from his first experience. Now, if Ron could only learn the same lesson...

There are some possibilities, although nothing really stood up and screamed "HIT!":

Damage Control (CBS)
Kerry Washington plays a professional "fixer," based on the career of Judy Smith, the crisis management consultant who has guided such public figures as Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick and served on the White House press staff under the first Bush.

Prime Suspect (NBC)
Based on Helen Mirren's successful series, adapted to a New York setting.

Rookies (ABC)
Six new New York cops try to balance their new jobs and their private lives. (This sounds rather conventional, but Robert De Niro is co-producer.)

Alcatraz (Fox)
A cop (Sarah Jones) and a team of FBI agents track down a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day after disappearing 30 years earlier. (Is Clint Eastwood among them?) J.J. Abrams will executive-produce and Liz Sarnoff will be the showrunner. Jorge Garcia (Hurley in Lost), Sam Neill, and Robert Forster are in it.

REM (NBC)
A police detective (Jason Isaacs) who's involved in a traumatic car accident wakes up in two fractured realities.

Special Investigations L.A. (NBC)
The project looks at Los Angeles through multiple perspectives, including law enforcement, the justice system, city hall and the criminal underworld.

Exit Strategy (Fox)
This series stars Ethan Hawke as the leader of a CIA extraction team.

Touch (Fox)
A father (Kiefer Sutherland) learns his autistic, mute son is psychic.

17th Precinct (NBC)
Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ron Moore created this supernatural police drama set in the fictional town of Excelsior. Battlestar vets Jamie Bamber, James Callis, and Tricia Helfer will star along with Stockard Channing.

Hail Mary (CBS)
An Atlanta-set P.I. drama tells the story of a suburban single mom who teams up with a street hustler to solve crimes. (This sounds like a sure loser except that Minnie Driver is playing the mom.)

I read something about Damage Control. It sounded as if expectations are high for that one.

Kiefer Sutherland's new show...I don't exactly see where that is going, but I'll give it a look or two.

Boston Rob hasn't really matured at all. He's still the same cocky s.o.b. he always was. What would happen if his tribe found out he's been concealing an immunity idol from him? Would they still follow him?

Probably. He'd spin some yarn, they'd buy it. They're not too bright.

The Ethan Hawke series about CIA extractions could be interesting or it could be formulaic, like L&O. But it's just the latest in TV's search for other avenues of law enforcement besides cops and prosecutors.

A couple of memorable lines in this last Survivor episode:
"That will hold something for she and for I." (Phillip the Pompous)

"Move to your left! No, your other left!" (Stephanie the Struggling)

The upcoming show, 17th Precinct...I'm glad to see some of the BSG people reunited, but I'm not happy the show is about the supernatural. That's one of the things I disliked most about the conclusion of BSG, when Ron Moore turned Starbuck into a ghost. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from that.
