Based on how things are faring right now, I would recommend holding off on a Pushing Daisies or a Terminator spec. Both those shows are suffering badly on their second season returns. (Or, if you are going to write them, get them out FAST, because you may not be able to use them for more than a few months).
I feel better about my CHUCK spec now.
I don’t think anyone will have to write a KNIGHT RIDER spec. Thank goodness.
Remember when I said BONES probably isn’t a good spec? I’ve changed my mind. The show is popular and gaining momentum in town I think.
Comedy specs: NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE: Dead. TIL DEATH: Dead.
I have a feeling I’ll be seeing THE MENTALIST specs by next spring. I have no feeling one way or the other about this.
Cable is still the place to spec right now — DEXTER, MAD MEN, THE CLOSER. I’m even contemplating a BURN NOTICE spec myself, which I would never have thought to do a few months ago.
