Don’t overthink dramas. ABC’s tried too hard to curry favor with critics by coming up with bold dramas that are too complicated (Line of Fire, Threat Matrix, and yes, Alias) or too dark (Miracles, Veritas) Either learn from CBS and NBC and create a procedural franchise (CSI, Law & Order) or re-embrace your thirtysomething roots and give women somthing to (willingly) cry over. Potential fall fixes: suburban-mom drama, Desparate Housewives and Gramercy Park, about nannies working in a posh NYC building.
