TV Squad presents the rest of the 2007-08 season

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 26th 2008 10:04AM

Battlestar Galactica is one of the many shows returning to TV this springHear that sound -- a nearly inaudible rumbling coming over the horizon? Everyday it is getting louder and louder. Soon, the stampede that is the return of scripted series back from the depths of the WGA strike will overrun our televisions and computer screens, bringing overwhelming joy to our lives.

Okay, that statement may be a little flowery, but the sentiment is still there. After a very long dry period a good many of our favorite comedies and dramas are returning to the television landscape. We've had a taste of it these last few weeks with the return of shows like The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Dirt, The Riches and Smallville. That was just a preview of what is to come. Over the next few weeks we will see the return of The Office, Scrubs, Ugly Betty, all of the CSIs, Battlestar Galactica, and Lost, among others.

Being the conscientious TV-related web site that we are, we have provided you with a listing of those returning shows, complete with the number of first-run episodes they have left to burn off before the season ends. Also listed are season and series premieres for a number of shows, programs that will be returning next season, and those shows that, due to the strike or the fact that they stunk, will not be returning at all. As usual, this list can change at a moment's notice. In other words, don't blame me if the networks change their minds.

Has any one heard if Supernatural will be returning after the four episodes beginning on April 24th and I thought they had cancelled Women's Murder Club although I really liked the show and I am a huge James Patterson fan anyway.

I agree with saving Las Vegas. They should at least let us know about Delinda and Danny and the baby of course.
I would also like to see what happens with Mike and his wife.

Any word on Women's Murder Club? I know it's coming back with new executive producers or whatever, but does anyone know WHEN it's coming back?

Hiya ~

I am literally counting down the days until Moonlight's return :) While the new episodes do begin on April 25th, Moonlight will actually return to the air on April 18th. CBS is rebroadcasting the last episode ~ The Mortal Cure ~ that night. Less than a month to our Mick fix!

Well, so far on Bionic Woman I've heard : cancelled, maybe not, cancelled again, saved again, and now cancelled again (!) in this article. I swear, either I've read the same news stories more than once, or they changed their minds several times. I am one of the (very, it seems) few people who enjoyed the show. Not saying it was great or anything, but enjoyable. Probable because I was a kid when the originals were on tv, so it was a bit nostalgic for me. I would still watch, but I'm not heartbroken if it's gone.

I am sad about Journeyman. I really loved that show. Between it and Jericho, I feel like I've lost best friends. It's too bad quality shows like them don't get an audience (at least according to Nielsen).

I enjoyed Life, but it wasn't a favorite like a lot a folks. Wish Chuck was coming back sooner, it's fun.

The Real World starts up again on April 16th (according to mtv.com.) There's some Real World Awards thing on the 2nd, so I guess that's what you thought. =)

Excuse me who decided that Sarah Jane was The Doctor's 'most favorite companion' and gave her a series. Who (sorry) forgot about Rowena? And Rose? Oh Who ( sorry) cares. I 'm so pissed at the whole strike I'm getting all my entertainment from Netflix. Look what they've done to Jack on24. Oh poop.

Bitter much?

Sara Jane has consistently been a fan favorite companion for as long as I can remember (started watching Who in the early 80s myself)

Also, her current series (which is great for the younger set) is not her first spin off show.

You forgot about Smallville. In the article you said it's already returned...but it's still on pre-strike episodes, the last of which airs tomorrow. After that, it's repeats for a few weeks until April 17th, when it returns with 5 post-strike episodes.

How about Big Love? Anybody heard anything? Also, listening to KNX news LA whilst driving home yesterday, they expressed concern over not only how much the WGA strike affected all things LA, but that there are apparently rumblings that the Screen Actors Guild is talking possible strike this fall. Just what we all need...more reality shows!

Also, does anyone know if Terminator: The Sara Conners Cronicles will be back?
