Fall TV revisited: What new shows have you stuck with?

In an underwhelming fall season, have any rookies stood out?

Because of election coverage, last night was a pretty slow night for scripted network TV. And since I'd already seen all my Tuesday cable shows in advance via screeners, and since the Knicks game was canceled due to a false alarm about asbestos (typical freakin' Knicks; just as they're starting to improve, it looks like the arena itself is toxic), I decided to do an inventory of the new network shows and figure out which ones I still cared about.

And the answer is none.

'The Walking Dead' scares up huge premiere numbers

More than 5 million viewers watch the zombie apocalypse series' debut

"All this arty-farty (stuff) aside," "The Walking Dead" writer/producer/director Frank Darabont told me back in the summer, "it’s really fun to see zombies in a show."

More than 5 million people agreed with Darabont on Sunday night, making "The Walking Dead" premiere (you can read my review of it here) the biggest hit in AMC history, and one of the bigger hits on cable, period.

Watch: 'The Chicago Code' teaser

FOX to premiere Shawn Ryan-produced cop drama in February

Last week, I talked to Shawn Ryan about how FOX changed the name of his upcoming cop drama from "Ride-Along" to "The Chicago Code." And with the finalized title came FOX's ability to start promoting the show, which they did frequently during yesterday's NFL and World Series coverage. "The Chicago Code" (and, as mentioned previously, I quite liked the pilot) is now set to debut in February, Mondays after "House." Here's the teaser that aired yesterday.
