ABSTRACT
Presents a list of U.S. television programs that belong to what the author calls “Oh puh-leeze!” season. As anyone who has followed television for very long can tell, there are several seasons in television broadcasting, namely fall season, midseason, pilot season and “Oh puh-leeze!” season. Viewers in the U.S. find themselves in the middle of “Oh puh-leeze!” season, that time when people both inside and outside the industry typically point to new premises that have been picked up by the networks for primetime series and reflexively exclaim,“Oh puh-leeze!” which is often followed by “Where do they come up with these things?” The list of shows that the networks schedule for fall or order for midseason always includes at least a couple of shows that must have been inexplicably taken from the rejects pile.
