Folks at CW have been saying that "The Reaper" (pictured) is a hell of a pilot, and darn it if that sentiment wasn’t seconded by a lot of people who attended the web’s upfront presentation today in Gotham. New drama "Life is Wild" and comedy "Aliens in America" got big reactions too, per the download on the event from Variety’s Michael Schneider. Schneider has earned a round of applause for checking in to all five of this week’s upfront presentations (plus a few parties) and never once losing his sense of humor or his lightning-fast ability to whip out news bulletins on his Blackberry for the Variety.com Web site. (Thanks Mike, we love you for it. Now come home!)
