Buffy, Angel, Firefly make Starpulse's fantasy Tuesday lineup. "Imagine this: through some temporal anomaly, rift in the space time continuum, or other such unique phenomenon, we are transported to an alternate reality. This new world is strikingly similar to our own, with one major exception. The television industry."

Ah, what a wonderful thought that alternate reality is.

Maybe some day...in a galaxy far far away.
Ah if only Farscape was on one of those nights too. :) Oh and Profit.
I love the idea of a Joss Whedon night, but I agree, we are lacking some really great shows. Farscape, Babylon 5, Wonderfalls... Mystery Science Theater 3000. Maybe some of these are in the not-as-primetime slots?

Anyway perhaps it's for the best - do we really need to spend every hour of every night in front of the tv?
So, in this alternate TV universe, would the WB actually get major Emmy nominations, and be bigger than Fox TV? THAT would be a dream come true.
Oh, and Alternate CBS would carry "Veronica Mars" and "Joan of Arcadia" back to back. They'd clean up at the Alternate Emmies too.
"An hour spent away from the TV is an hour wasted."

Oh wait, no, I think you're right, AFF.
I'd replace TNG with Deep Space Nine, add the West Wing under Sorkin and Sports Night, the Office US, Veronica Mars and Friday Night Lights, and maybe Friends.
I'm really visualizing the whole Joss Whedon Network thingy (or the JW for short). We could have the trinity (Buffy, Angel, and Firefly), Wonderfalls, The Inside, Drive, and definitely Dollhouse. And any show that's had a Whedon alumni prominently could be shown in reruns.

And as long as we're pipe-dreaming here, you could bring back The Invisible Man, Good Vs. Evil, and The Chronicle (still sore over those). And Gargoyles too, while we're at it.
I was thinking to myself... gee what a great, well thought out list!

Then...

Cap off the night with another Abrams effort, "Lost," perhaps the most fascinating and complex television series ever created.

Now im thinking, how did this man ever get a job writing about television shows? Sigh...

Did anyone else think doctor who when they first read the descriptiont "rift in the time space continuum? No... nobody...just me then :/ All hail tuesday night!
I am actually willing to give up my universe of shrimp just for Tuesday night alone.
Not at all impressed, except for Whedon night and the thing about a Whedon network. They were mixing in some basic cable (The Shield) so why leave out premium cable and the shows on HBO, the real class act of TV?
I'd also have a lot more SciFi, the exclusion of B5 is just so not right.
And what about a mini-series night, there have been some really worthy ones.
Go one step further. Make it Joss Whedon WORLD and let Joss run all the shows that already exist. I'd watch paint dry if Joss was running the show (and it'd probably be better than most of the drivel on nowadays)!
Sorry but The Cosby Show, All In the Family, Seinfeld, Cheers all make me a little ill to contemplate having them on the dial again.
