New Orleans cop drama ''K-Ville'' is the perfect vehicle for ''The Shield'''s Anthony Anderson, but why did Julianna Margulies decide to return to TV for the unoriginal ''Canterbury's Law?''

Judging Fox's new lineup

EW concludes its look at the broadcast networks' upfront lineup announcements with a look at Fox's primetime 2007-08 season.

Most Promising

K-Ville
Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, this cop drama has a nice hard edge to it — plus, after his stunning turn on The Shield, it's great to see Anthony Anderson in a lead role, this time as a New Orleans family man and detective who wants to make a dent in the crime wave.

Least Promising

Canterbury's Law
Julianna Margulies returns to series TV... for this? Yet another legal drama about a lawyer who pushes the envelope too far and/or doesn't know where to draw the line. We'll draw the line right at this unoriginal premise, thank you.
