My take: Private Practice is pretty much a shoe-in to be a success. It will be interesting to see what that does as a lead-in to Dirty Sexy Money. I know several of my friends list is pulling for Cavemen, but I give it 6 episodes max. Not much else inspiring here, which is fine since I need to cut back on the TV watching... Good to see Kristen Chenoweth, Chi McBride, and Peter Krause though.
