Here are most of the sitcom pilot cast photos.
DISCLAIMER: Do NOT, I repeat do NOT save these images and post them on other sites or anywhere else. You may only provide a link to the images from here to other sites. These images are Sitcoms Online exclusives. Only when the network picks up any of these series, you may save them. And the ones that are not picked up, will stay here and be part of sitcom history as they never were picked up.

Cast photos in this post are (in order): Our Thirties and Women of a Certain Age.

Still waiting for In Case of an Emergency.

Some buzz:

Dramas greenlit are "Six Degrees," "The Nine" and "Daybreak." Comedies with a go-ahead for next season are single camera sitcoms "Help Me Help You," "In Case of Emergency" and "Notes From the Underbelly."
It's likely several more projects will get greenlights by the end of this week.
And ABC may order as many as three or four more dramas, according to talk around town, while "Lost" may launch its new season in November (hence why the S2 DVD is coming in early October) . And they seem likely to bring back "The Bachelor" franchise as well after a successful midseason run.

More buzz:

The single-camera half-hour "Him and Us," starring Kim Cattrall, is believed to be a no-go at ABC and may be shopped elsewhere.

ABC is expected to pick up a few more series, with dramas "Traveler," "Secrets of a Small Town," "Ugly Betty," "Drift," "Men in Trees" and "Brothers & Sisters" battling it out for the remaining one-hour slots and the untitled Burnett/Beckerman (Let's Rob Mick Jagger) and Hunt/Lake (Let Go) half-hours in the running on the comedy side.
If the network's hot medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" makes the move to Monday 9 p.m. as speculated, "Six Degrees" and "Secrets of a Small Town" are rumored as possible companions to launch behind it.
From the network's returning series, the comedies "According to Jim" and "George Lopez" are said to be looking good to come back, with "Freddie" also a possibility. Things look grimmer on the drama side for "What About Brian" and "Invasion." If "Invasion" is not picked up at ABC, the sci-fi drama might be taken to the CW, sources said.
A lot of pieces on ABC's schedule will depend on whether the network opts for a Thursday/Friday or Wednesday/Thursday pattern for "Dancing With the Stars," with "Day Break" rumored for a possible Thursday berth and "Traveler" said to be in consideration for a midseason run in the Tuesday 10 p.m. slot.

Just got all the ABC fall sitcom/drama pilots (no mid-season shows yet) except Brothers & Sisters for planning purposes. They are not for review at this time, so we won't be able to bring you reviews of them until September when review copies are sent.

I can't wait to watch some of these! I'll let you know in a few words which caught my eye and which didn't, though.

Wow. just looking at it, ABC should have a really good fall. DWTS is really going to fill up a lot of holes and Lost actually having a decent lead-in should really boost that show too. It may be a bold prediction, but I think that ABC is going to give CBS a run for its money, at least in the fall.

OK, my pilot thoughts:

Let's Rob: HILARIOUS!!!!! A must see!
Six Degrees: ADDICTIVE...it is perfect for the post-GA slot
The Nine: OK...the first half has a lot of action, but the second half really doesn't...but the last scene makes you want to see the 2nd episode ASAP
Help Me Help You: ABC so far is 2 for 2 in sitcoms this fall. This is flat out hilarious! Ted Danson in a different role, but very nicely played.
Big Day: OK...it has its moments...I love all the What's Happening!! references, though. Will watch 2nd episode. I think women will love it.
Notes from the Underbelly: People think that this might be better than Big Day, in the long run it might be, but I thought Big Day was better...this gets an OK. They all watch Lost it seems when having sex...hilarious. Again I think women will love it.
Betty the Ugly: Decent...has some funny moments, but I wouldn't call this a one-hour comedy as ABC is labeling it.
Men in Trees: I thought this was very good! It is called Men in Trees because there are nothing but men in Alaska, lol. It was very interesting to watch. John Amos is great.

Brothers & Sisters is not available yet from ABC, so I hope to have that later...but expect FULL reviews of the sitcoms (and maybe a drama or two) in September from us!

I finally saw Betty the Ugly and Men in Trees. See my previous post for my thoughts on those. Seriously, every fall pilot I saw all were good enough. The Nine was disappointing, though. I hope it gets better. Well, Big Day and Underbelly were sort of lets downs, too, but everything else was great! I guess Betty the Ugly is somewhere in between. The ones to watch this fall are Let's Rob and 6 Degrees. They will be break-out hits!

I am dying to see Brothers & Sisters...I haven't gotten it yet, but from what I heard, it will be a surprise hit because everyone keeps saying it will fail.

Well, I saw the pilot for "Let's Rob Mick Jagger" now titled "Knights of Prosperity". Let me say that is the dumbest most idiotic setting for sitcom I have ever seen. To me, it seemed like it could be a good movie plot, but a sitcom no way. What are they are going to do every week plot a different part of robbing Mick Jagger ? What are they going to do after they finally successfully or unsuccessfully rob him ? What would they do if they got a second season, rob someone else ?

Looks like another ABC sitcom bomb, if you want to actually call this a sitcom.


By the way, I also saw "The Class", which will be on CBS and it was terrific. Very funny. Seems like it could be the next "Friends".

Super Bowl, that sitcom is hilarious. The future focus will be on the gang itself, not really the robbing. People loved the pilot!
The Class is good, but most were not happy with the pilot.

Everyone has a right to their opinion. Every year ABC tells us how great their sitcoms did with their focus groups, and they almost all fail. This time last year they were raving about Freddie and Crumbs, and they followed they same pattern. I am just telling what I saw. The show was a little funny and far from hilarious. If you call that hilarious I don't know what you would call the classics. The show was plain dumb. The ratings will tell all.

Yes, they were raving about Freddie, Crumbs, but this year 'critics' are raving about Knights... And I think it is actually laugh-out-loud. People who like Ed and My Name is Earl will like it.
