Ok, so you’ve read all about NBC’s new schedule. and you’ve watched clips from the new fall shows, most of which don’t look terribly exciting (and one of which, “Outsourced,” can suck my balls). Now let’s check out the midseason replacements.

“The Cape”

Prognosis: Looks like a low-rent Unbreakable meets “Smallville.” Color me bored already.

“Friends With Benefits”

Prognosis: I can already taste Ryan Hansen’s wasted potential.

“Harry’s Law”

Prognosis: Patent law is boring! David E. Kelley is also boring.

“The Paul Reiser Show”

Prognosis: There was a time when I really liked Paul Reiser. That time was long ago.

“Perfect Couples”

Prognosis: Comedies are supposed to be funny, right?
