New Fall T.V. Season

I was looking at the new shows for the fall lineup this year and noticed that not a single show coming one looks any good. And they haven't looked good for the past 3-4 years. It's gotten so bad that the only good show on network t.v. anymore is L&O:SVU. The only good stations anymore are USA and Sci Fi and their schedules are so screwed up that it's almost six months between seasons sometimes. Or, in the case of Battlestar Galactica, almost a year.

And I love that network television is dipping it's fingers into science fiction. But none of them are any good. Never seen Heroes and don't plan on it. Journeyman, Moonlight, New Amsterdam, The Sarah Conner Chronicles and Bionic Woman. None interest me in the slightest. I recently watched the pilot for Bionic Woman. Crap. The only good thing about it was the fact that two of the stars of BSG were in it. That's it. Network television sucks.

On other thing. Why can't t.v. execs come up with their own shows? Why are they bringing all these British shows to America? Are they really that lazy or stupid?
