TwoCents Fall Preview - Fridays (CBS)

Fridays are full of drama on...


Show: Ghost Whisperer
Premiere Date: September 28th
Time: 8:00PM EST
TwoCents Staff Returning Drama Rank: 24 of 25
TwoCents Staff Writer: TBD
Starring: Jennifer Love Hewitt, David Conrad, Camryn Manheim, Jay Mohr
Premiere Description: "The Underneath" - Melinda's search for the truth about her family history grows more complex when she learns that she has an underlying connection to Grandview, on the third season premiere of GHOST WHISPERER.
New Face: JAY MOHR will become a series regular, playing Professor Payne who provides an encyclopedic knowledge of the spirit world, as well as genuine concern for Melinda’s (Jennifer Love Hewitt) safety as she puts herself in ever greater danger to protect those she cares about — even though he hides his concern behind an ever-present irreverent sense of humor. "We’re thrilled to have Jay as a series regular this year. He’s a terrific actor who is fun to work with for the same reasons he’s fun to watch: he brings humor, energy, creativity and spontaneity to the set and to his role. He also brings sports commentary and sometimes donuts," says Executive Producer P.K. Simonds.

Show: Moonlight
Premiere Date: September 28th
Time: 9:00PM EST
TwoCents Staff New Show Rank: 17 of 26
TwoCents Staff Writer: Jon G
Starring: Alex O'Loughlin, Sophia Myles, Jason Dohring, Shannyn Sossamon
Description: "No Such Thing As Vampires" - When a series of vampire-style murders plague L.A., immortal investigator Mick St. John (O'Loughlin) sets out to find the culprits and re-connects with a woman, Internet reporter Beth Turner (Myles), from his past at a crime scene, on the series premiere of MOONLIGHT.
Jon G's TwoCents: The vampire-detective-walking-among-us type of TV drama has been tried before (Angel, Forever Knight), so will this one take? Program trailers look very promising and the fact that Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin) is only supposed to be about 80 years old brings a little more validity to the concept. Somehow unrequited love between a vampire and a mortal woman still intrigues us...
TV by KP: Having seen the premiere I'm curiuos how far this show will make it. The acting didn't wow me but the story of vampires in general public is always interesting. There's some silly stuff, such as watching Mick St. John try to avoid the sun coming through the limbs of trees, but for the most part they did the vampire stuff without being too crazy. The best acting was, without a doubt, from Jason Dohring who has seasons of Veronica Mars under his belt.

Premiere Date: September 28th
Time: 10:00PM EST
TwoCents Staff Returning Drama Rank: 21 of 25
TwoCents Staff Writer: KP
Starring: Rob Morrow, David Krumholtz, Judd Hirsch, Alimi Ballard, Navi Rawat, Dylan Bruno, Diane Farr, Peter MacNicol
Premiere Description: "Trust Metric" - Agent Colby Granger lands in prison after the discovery that he was a mole within the FBI, but he escapes, and it's up to Don and his team to track him down and uncover the truth, on NUMB3RS.
TV by KP: I love this show. It's smart, witty, action packed and incredibly acted! Look at this cast. Rob Morrow (Northern Exposure), David Krumholtz (The Santa Clause), Judd Hirsch (Taxi), Peter MacNicol (Chicago Hope/Ally McBeal). Add in Navi Rawat, Diane Farr and Dylan Bruno and wow. This show is very good and it hides away on Fridays, which is a shame. I look forward to this new season and I hope you tune in!
