By DALE McGARRIGLE; OF THE NEWS STAFF Tonight is an evening of imports. First up is "Kath and Kim," inspired by an Australian sitcom of the same name, debuting at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. Well-paired with "My Name is Earl" at 8 p.m., "Kath and Kim" is another entertaining, white-trash buddy comedy. Kath Day (played by "SNL" alum Molly Shannon) is a fortysomething single mom who has finally found love, in the form of sandwich-shop owner Phil Knight (John Michael Higgins). But just as things...

By RICK BENTLEY By Rick Bentley McClatchy Newspapers LOS ANGELES THERE'S A LOT of concern about science running amok this year. Fox has "Fringe." CBS has "Eleventh Hour." British actor Rufus Sewell stars in "Eleventh Hour" as Dr. Jacob Hood, a special science adviser to the FBI. He works under the mandate to investigate crimes and crises of a scientific or technological nature. Imagine a cloning experiment goes bad. Who are you going to call? Dr. Hood. Executive Producer Ethan...

By David Kronke CBS' "Eleventh Hour" and Fox's "Fringe" offer a textbook case in similar subject matter handled in each network's trademark style. "Fringe" trucks in manic, often gross-out yarns and paranoia. "Eleventh Hour" is measured, vaguely moody, just this side of condescending in its exposition and delights in manipulative stories involving dead children. Oh, and both shows feature a sexy blond FBI agent, because, you know, there are so many of those. "Eleventh Hour" is based on...

By Scott D. Pierce Deseret News BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- A couple of things can happen when Americans try to turn a hit British series into a hit on this side of the pond. It can turn out like "The Office," which was very successful in both versions. Or it can turn out like "Viva Laughlin," a horrifically bad and mercifully short-lived Americanization of "Viva Blackpool." What generally has to happen in order for this sort of thing to work is that the American version has to use the...

By Christopher Lawrence Forget the housing meltdown, the crisis on Wall Street and the fact that banks are failing faster than Hugh Hefner's relationships. The surest sign America is in trouble? Even our TV shows are being outsourced. A quarter of the fall season's new series are remakes of foreign shows, and two of the British ones - "Life on Mars" (KTNV-TV, Channel 13) and "Eleventh Hour" (KLAS-TV, Channel 8) - face off this week at 10 p.m. Thursday. But that's pretty much where the...

By Frazier Moore As you sample the new TV series arriving in the next week, you might find that no matter how widely they vary otherwise, they share a common link: All of them are playing with time. "Valentine," a romantic fantasy on CW, plucks Aphrodite, goddess of love, from ancient mythology and establishes her in the modern Hollywood Hills to help make love bloom between predestined partners. Assisting her (here known as Grace Valentine) are her son Danny (aka Eros), Leo (aka Hercules)...

By Christopher Lawrence By CHRISTOPHER LAWRENCE REVIEW-JOURNAL Not excited about the new fall TV season? Blame the writers strike. Haven't heard enough about the new shows to know whether you should be excited? Blame the writers strike. Trouble sleeping? Wife cheating on you? Tom Brady's torn ACL already cost you your fantasy league? Might as well blame the writers strike for all that, too. It seems last winter's 100-day work stoppage has become the scapegoat du jour, edging past...
