In the spirit of polygamy drama ''Big Love,'' there are a LOT of promising series we're itching to see -- like spacy Paula and ''Flash Gordon,'' ''Mad Men'' and ''My Boys,'' and the returns of David Duchovny and Glenn Close
15. BIG BROTHER (CBS, 2000-present)
9. BIG BROTHER 8
July start date TBA · Time TBA · CBS
The eighth installment of CBS' peekaboo playground will have trouble topping last year's unforgettable All-Stars, with curvy Janelle and the cunning Dr. Will. ''They were some of the best reality contestants out there,'' says exec producer Allison Grodner. So are there major changes in the works to keep things fresh? Well...no. ''Then it wouldn't be Big Brother,'' says Grodner. Expect the return of Julie Chen, the golden veto, twists like last year's sleep-deprivation graveyard, and more of that disgusting, lumpy gruel.
