Mildly charming but exceptionally thin, it makes it hard to fault Fox for its lack of faith. So let the "Games" begin, but don't expect many to wind up carrying a torch for it.
Upcoming shows include CW's "The Carrie Diaries," ABC's "Nashville," NBC's "Chicago Fire," Fox's "The Mindy Project," more . . .
Though much has been made in recent years of film stars migrating to starring roles on the smallscreen, the familiar names in this year's pilot casting continue to come mainly from the TV world.
NBC has continued with its back-order momentum, granting full-season production to freshman skein "Chase" and returnee "Chuck."
"Love" doesn't bite for "Will and Grace" alums Tracy Poust and Jon Kinnally, who have taken over as showrunners on NBC's troubled newcomer "Love Bites."
ABC's "Ugly Betty" is strutting off the primetime catwalk.
Only auds immune to diabetic rushes should head for "August Rush."
