Tonight: The Good Wife & The Forgotten

The Good Wife

We’re pretty excited for tonight!  This evening marks the premiere of The Good Wife on CBS and, we have to admit, we’ve been looking forward to this show for quite some time.  The cast includes some of our favorite actors of all time, the promotional trailers look fantastic and even the artwork (see above) is looking pretty awesome.  Oh, and the concept sounds pretty good, too!

The Good Wife premieres tonight, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on CBS.

But wait!  Get your DVR’s ready because there’s also a new series on ABC this evening: The Forgotten.  Or ‘The forgotten‘ as it’s showing up on our Program Guide.  Nobody seems to know much about this series as the pilot was reshot after the lead character was recast with Christian Slater.

From all the trailers we’ve come across, it seems to be a serial in the vein of CBS’ Cold Case about regular folk who help find…well, the forgotten.  Check out some trailers we posted here and here.

The Forgotten premieres this evening, Tuesday September 22nd at 10pm on ABC.

The Forgotten

While ABC seems to be throwing most of their pre-fall promotional resources into sci-fi mind-bender Flash Forward and fresh-faced comedy sitcom Modern Family, we’ve been struggling to keep up with some of their other shows such as this one, The Forgotten.  You’d think being Christian Slater’s return to television and being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer would warrant a bit more of a push, but if that’s the way ABC wants to play it, who are we to judge, right?

Actually, while we are looking forward to this show, we must admit that it seems like it would be a better fit over at CBS.  They’re more procedural and missing persons-y than ABC, don’t you think?

You can also see an older preview we posted about here.

We here at DVR Life like to think we catch a lot of what’s going on in the TV world but this show has kinda slipped by.  Not many people have been talking about it, though we did start catching some commercials lately.  It’s certainly hasn’t been getting the exposure other upcoming ABC series has been, like Modern Family or Hank and especially not Flash Forward – that show’s been everywhere!  It also hasn’t been getting the hype most Bruckheimer shows get.  We’re especially surprised we didn’t catch any big press releases or “exclusives” when Christian Slater was cast.  If we’re not mistaken, the original pilot features some non-Slater actor in the part.
