J.J. Abrams Spy Series: After a day of nonstop chaos between the major networks, NBC came out on top and scored J.J.'s superhyped action-packed spy thriller. Even better? Our favorite Lost/Alias mastermind is teaming back up with Felicity scribe Josh Reims to write the series.

ABC Family: Whoa! Joey Lawrence and Melissa Joan Hart are starring in a new comedy pilot together, an early '90s teen dream. Hart plays a politician who inherits her niece and nephew and hires Lawrence to be her "manny."

Day One: What was supposed to be a midseason drama on NBC has been reduced to a two-hour pilot and two additional episodes. Apparently execs envisioned it as "a big event" instead.

Damages: Former 24 and Lost star Reiko Aylesworth will recur on the FX series next season. No deets on what she'll be up to have been released just yet.
