Tuesday Upfront Update

Entertainment Weekly just posted ABC's fall schedule, so time to take a look at what they've got going on this fall. As with the other networks, the majority of shows seem to be more cop and lawyer procedurals. Seriously, are there people watching every single one of these? Enough! But just as yesterday I picked out the two most promising sounding shows for NBC and Fox, I've got 2 ABC shows I'm looking forward to as well.

No Ordinary Family - A drama about a family that suddenly gets superpowers, this is basically Heroes meets The Incredibles. But The Incredibles is awesome, and with a cast that includes Julie Benz (Dexter) and Tate Donovan (Damages), I'm hoping it can hold up better than Heroes did.

Mr. Sunshine - When Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip premiered, I had high hopes that it would be Sports Night starring Matthew Perry. But it's looking like this new comedy may be closer to the mark, with Matthew Perry playing the owner of a sports stadium. The pilot's even directed by Sorkin-collaborator Thomas Schlamme! Also stars Allison Janney.
