The TV Pilots of Next Season

Dark Horizons has a great rundown of the 45 television pilots that have been greenlit by the five big networks for this spring. Surprisingly, the network I watch the least, Fox, has my favorite idea of the bunch: Them, a sci-fi-meets-Alias drama that "centers on an extraterrestrial sleeper cell that has infiltrated the human race." Hey, if it's half as good as Battlestar Galactica, I'll take it. The other hotspots:

NBC: a remake of 70's hit The Bionic Woman, and M.O.N.Y., with Bobby Cannavale as the mayor of New York City. Hey, if Bloomberg can do it...
ABC: Going the remake route, with American versions of the Brit hits Footballers' Wives and Life on Mars, and a small screen version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith (which is a better movie than most give it credit for).
CBS: The saddest list of the bunch. When your most promising pilot stars Stephen Dorff in something heinously named "Skip Tracer", you know you're in trouble.
FOX: In addition to Them, the House of Murdoch has The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which will pick up where the Terminator movie franchise left off.
CW: Kinda bleak. The creator of The O.C. will move to NYC and try the same concept. We aren't holding our breath.
