Hearing that CBS is still eyeing another drama pickup for midseason – even after loading up with "The Good Wife," "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "Three Rivers" for the fall and "The Bridge" and "Miami Trauma" for midseason.

Word is that CBS TV Studios' untitled U.S. Attorneys drama from scribe Frank Military and helmer Mimi Leder is still the top contender. But don't count out the drawing power of the freshman class of the House, or the "House Rules," the ABC Studios pilot from scribe Michael Seitzman and the prolific Mark Gordon.

On the half-hour side, I'm told it's unlikely that CBS is taking a second look at any of its pilots….but never say never.
