Clip Madness: Get a glimpse of Fox and ABC’s new shows

Pd_screening_kissIn an effort to rev up for the fall season, it’s time to inaugurate what I intend to make a regular feature of this blog, namely lots of video snippets from our favorite, and even not-so-favorite and we’re-not-sure-yet, shows.

Let’s call it Clip Madness. (This edition was made possible by the kind folks at Fox and ABC who helped me quickly wrangle some clips. In subsequent weeks we’ll spread the spotlight around to all the nets that care to offer up easy-to-embed snippets.)

Clip Madness is presented in the spirit of this wonderful time of year, the tail end of the honeymoon period when every new show is full of promise, this year’s sleeper, a new “Friends,” the next “CSI,” a slow-building gem a la “The Office,” etc. etc. Showrunners are starting to stock up on Mylanta, vodka and Vicodin, but network marketing mavens are in their element as they head into the final now-or-never stretch of piquing the American public’s interest in what the programming department came up with this year.

(Pictured above: A scene you’re not likely to see on ABC’s “Pushing Daisies,” for reasons that will become clear in the clip posted below. Pic of actors Lee Pace and Anna Friel kissing comes from the Aug. 16 screening of “Daisies” at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.)
