Jace, have any pilots been made available for screening to critics yet?

Here's my early opinion after watching the promos:

- Raising Hope

This looks GREAT. I'm so glad FOX is turning to more single camera comedies, and this show looks like it could be a classic. I laughed out loud several times during the promos. But it also looks like it could be touching and meaningful.

- Running Wilde

Great pairing for Raising Hope, really hope Glee helps these shows in the ratings. Keri Russel?! Will Arnett?! Coming to us from Mitch Hurwitz? Count me in, please.

- Lonestar

Not something I'm dying to see, but this looks well-written, well-produced, and compelling. And more like something from FX than FOX. I applaud the network for this one. I most likely won't watch it unless it gets picked up for a full season because my fall is going to be really busy, but I hope this makes it. If FOX can turn this into a success we'd probably see the networks going more for quality rather than simply "commercial".

- Ride-Along

I think I'll like this more than I did "The Shield", and also a bit like a cable series, although I think this one could be a hit.

- Bob's Burgers

Meh. It's good to see something that's not created by Seth McFarlane on FOX's Sunday line-up. Um...that's all.

- Mixed Signals

Looks decent enough, but doesn't look or feel like something that's going to last beyond its initial order.

The Mixed Signals preview had me cracking up. So I'll probably check that out. And I'm not sure about Raising Hope, but I might give it a try. Doesn't hurt that they'll air after Glee.

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
