I will watch LeVar Burton in just about anything. Projects he's involved with are usually outstanding. I don't even have kids and I was saddened when he ended Reading Rainbow. It was very valuable programming.

I don't believe I've even seen ads for this show however and almost everything I'm watching on broadcast TV right now is from NBC, namely America's Got Talent & Last Comic Standing. I did see that they are moving Big Bang Theory to Thursdays this fall. Yea!

Otherwise I'm a bit suspicious of Wal-Mart becoming a movie production company. The plot reads like every 5th episode of Eureka, which I love, and having watched every episode since Season 1, can tell you is perfectly family friendly and funny. Wal-Mart claiming there isn't enough family-friendly TV fare out there so they have to save-the-day is an excuse to make themselves more money in my opinion.

I think I'll watch because I've missed Burton on TV. He's the draw for me. But I'll start throwing things if there are too many product tie-ins. And I'm sure I'll be wishing I had a Tivo to skip all the ads. I can see it being one of those shows with a break every 13 minutes for 2 minutes of commercials.
