Fall TV Show Schedule: The Event, Dancing With The Stars, House start today
Football has consumed the weekends and now networks are giving us something else to watch Monday through Friday.
Over this past summer NBC has given us glimpses of The Event. Publicizing the show as a Lost meets 24, it is clear that NBC is looking to fill the void left by the two vastly popular shows that are no longer airing. Calling it a ‘high-octane conspiracy thriller,’ the network is looking to captivate its audience with a lot of fast action and a quick-moving plot that leaves viewers thinking and wanting more. As for what the show is really about, all we are given is a brief description of an average Joe investigating the disappearance of his girlfriend and along the way uncovering the biggest cover-up in U.S. history while meeting new interesting characters. As for what the show is really about, viewers will just have to wait and see the series premier tonight at 9 on NBC.
Lost fan’s have another connection to a different show creating a lot of buzz. The remake of the 1970’s hit show Hawaii Five-0 features Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly (Jin from Lost). Also starring Alex O’Laughlin as Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan as Danno Williams and Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua, this task force is put together to clean up the crime of Hawaii. In what looks to be a fun in the sun Cop show Hawaii Five-0 airs tonight at 10 on CBS.
Fox network is also trying to break into Monday primetime with their new show Lone Star about a Texas con-man with two identities, trying to go straight. Lone Star airs at 8 p.m.
