CBS: Pilot-Watch 2012 continues …
So, what about CBS’s Fall 2012 schedule? You can check out the full schedule, with a helpful grid, over at EW.com. I only watch two CBS shows currently, but there are three upcoming pilots that have me curious.
First up is Vegas, which will be airing Tuesday nights at 10/9c this fall. Starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, Vegas is a “1960′s period piece inspired by the true story of Ralph Lamb, a cowboy turned sheriff of Las Vegas, and Johnny Savino, a Chicago mob fixer.” The drama also stars Jason O’Mara (whose torso was the best part of Terra Nova) and the kick-ass Carrie-Anne Moss. It will be nice to see Trinity on my TV screen, I think. Check out the video below for a closer look:
I’m also intrigued by Elementary, a “modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes,” set in New York City. Jonny Lee Miller plays the iconic detective, while his partner, Dr. Joan Watson, will be played by Lucy Liu. Aidan Quinn also stars. Check out the trailer below:
And the third CBS pilot that I’ll be checking out is Partners, mostly for the sake of Sophia Bush. The series centers on Joe (David Krumholtz) and Louis (Michael Urie), “lifelong friends and business partners whose bond has lasted longer than any of their romantic relationships.” But when Joe plans to marry Ali (Sophia Bush), “the friends wonder how a spouse may change their dynamic.” Brandon Routh (a.k.a Superman) also stars, as Louis’s boyfriend Wyatt. I doubt that this is one I’ll be able to stick with, but I’ll have to check out the first few episodes, just for the cast. I’ve posted the trailer below:
Thoughts? What will you be watching this fall?
