<i>Unforgettable</i>: Memory Loves Company

If there's one thing Unforgettable successfully taught us in its pilot episode, it's that having hyperthymesia -- the condition its protagonist Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery) has which gives her a photographic memory -- is not all fun and games. Sure, you can count cards, but you'll quickly get caught and have to turn all of the corrupt casino goons against each other. You can solve crimes, but that includes the one where your kid sister was violently murdered. You can impress a few old folks at the retirement home, but that comes with the unfortunate burden of remembering every single second to all of the Everybody Loves Raymond episodes you've seen. There are drawbacks.

CBS' 2011 Upfront Presentation: If It Ain't Broke, Don't Bother Fixing It With Good Shows

CBS spent most of their upfront presentation telling us that they don't have a lot of new shows because their returning shows are so good or, as Les Moonves put it, "We make mass appeal hit shows." Fantastic, so more cop dramas then? The event kicked off with Michael Weatherly doing a pre-taped bit to appeal to advertisers. Oh, Eyes Only. I expected better from you. Then they had David Letterman, Steve Martin and Paul Schaffer doing a pre-taped song about how good all the new shows were. It was awkward and unfunny. And then the cast of Blue Bloods did an extended segment in which they chased down a perp (Regis Philbin, who was begging for a job on The Talk) in order to get the CBS fall schedule to the upfront in time. After a helicopter ride (on tape), Tom Selleck arrived at Carnegie Hall, old school Jeff Probst on Survivor finale style, with the schedule to hand off to Moonves. Was that really the best they could do with the talented cast of Blue Bloods? On the plus side, Will Estes received more screen time in this bit than he has all season on the show.
