    I also don't think there's much point in comparing them. They both take place in roughly the same era ... but that's where the similarity ends. Aside from being set on different continents and in very different workplace settings, The Hour was a conceived as 6-part series with a defined beginning, middle, and end, while Mad Men was always intended to be a continuing series with characters coming and going, multiple plot arcs, etc. etc. It was only because of popular demand that The Hour came back for a second season.

    It does illustrate the biggest difference between American and British TV though: American series always intend to be multiple seasons long (networks, viewers, and sponsors willing) ... while British series are almost always conceived as single seasons, with additional seasons added only if the produces feel there's something more to say (and if the talent involved is willing).
    Now I'm almost to the point where I prefer the British way of doing this because you see so many talented actors active in television as well as film. Of course the disadvantage is to us when we fall in love with a show as I have with "Sherlock." Cumberbatch and Freeman are so popular now that I read recently that the new season will not arrive until 2014 due to demands on their time. Argh!

    I started watching at the beginning of the run, for Peter Krause. I enjoyed him on this show, and I enjoyed most of the kids, but so many of the other characters were written in such an unlikeable way and/or acted in such an annoying way that I had to bail. Could not stand Lauren Graham as an actress.

    Erika Christensen is my favourite on Parenthood. I am all about the Victor storyline.

    Something's off with that list. It doesn't show any CBS or ABC shows returning till February, when most if not all of them actually return this month.

    I noticed that after CBS has all new shows on tonight. Zap2it.com usually has a listing but they are late.

    This list from cliqueclack.com seems to have a better filled in schedule. I'll switch it with the one I have above in post #623:

    I liked the boy in tonight's show enough that I could see him--with his brilliant algorithms--assisting from time to time. He certainly seems alone in the world.

    I sure hope so. I think Finch wanted to adopt him by the end. He just seemed so excited to find a junior version of himself.

    I'm not sure I could see Finch recruiting the kid to assist now, but it would be an interesting addition to the team. But it looks like he could be Finch's chosen one to continue his work, when the time comes?

    I'm scared for Blue Bloods. I've already lost NYC 22 so I do not want to lose Blue Bloods too. LOL
