Continuing my new & returning show premier pieces that talk about the shows that are launching or relaunching this week for the mid-season time-frame.  Popular TV series returning from their midseason breaks include Chuck, Family GuyLie To Me and the NCIS shows.  Some of the new shows popping up include The Cape & Lights Out.

I’m as much of a genre fan as the next viewer and I’d love to see a genre show have a reasonable amount of success, but I’m just not feeling a good vibe.  What I mean by good vibe is that I don’t think the Nielsen families that make or break the fate of TV series.

David Lyons in The Cape

The Cape will star David Lyons (ER, Sea Patrol) as Vince Faraday, James Frain (True Blood, Tron: Legacy), Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dollhouse) & the deep-voiced Keith David (Death at a Funeral, Lottery Ticket).

Summer Glau in The Cape

It’s about a cop wrongfully accused of a crime and he spends his free time fighting crime while he tries to clear his name.  For the record, all the Summer Glau fans in the world would love to see her land a role on a successful series that has some longevity!

The potential saving grace for the show could have been team behind the camera, but writer / creator Tom Wheeler has no real writing projects in his resume, but the director could save the show.  Deran Sarafian has spent a substantial amount of time directing House M.D..  So there’s a bit of hope for the show.  I am hoping there’s something magical about the show that helps it survive but I’m preparing for a very short existence for the show on NBC.

Below are the shows coming up this Sunday, Monday & Tuesday…  Check on your local listings for times in your area. [TV Guide]
