i opine...
It might be pitched as "Suburban Law." Jennifer Finnigan plays a prosecutor (and new mom) in, surprise, the 'burbs. I guess Jerry Bruckheimer is giving the city a rest this season. It'll boil down to how procedural the show is (we're getting to the peak for procedurals) and whether or not you like Jennifer Finnigan. Takes over the "Judging Amy" slot, so in a way, it's got a built-in audience.
the breakdown
  I don't know, since there's really nothing that stands out in the premise. Slot competition isn't really heavy, CBS might be very happy with a Top 25 showing. Surprisingly, CBS/Viacom does NOT have a financial interest in the show, but it gives Bruckheimer an unbelivable six hours on CBS' sked.
