What can we say about CBS’ upcoming TV lineup other than Halle Berry? The Academy Award-winning icon herself joins the network in the riveting summer series Extant. It’s Gravity-meets-Rosemary’s Baby as Halle plays an astronaut who returns home after a solo missionΓÇª and she’s pregnant. Yeah, figure that out! Premieres July 9. Here’s the hot shows we can’t wait for this Fall.
Scorpion (Mondays, 9 p.m.)
WHAT ITΓÇÖS ABOUT. Nerds rule the worldΓÇª especially when they are the smartest on the planet. This band of intellectual misfits use their brainiac gifts to solve major crises, like a blackout at LAX control tower.
OUR DIVALICIOUS TAKE. Following in the footsteps of Numb3rs and Criminal Minds, it’s all about using your smarts to teach the bad guys a lesson!
Stalker (Wednesdays, 10 p.m.)
WHAT ITΓÇÖS ABOUT. Maggie Q (pictured above) stars as a detective who takes care of one of the most frightening crimes, stalking (cases have tripled since the onset of social media). Using the law ΓÇô and some tactics outside of it, to stop those who cross the line. And yes, sheΓÇÖs been there before.
OUR DIVALICIOUS TAKE. We loved how Maggie Q kicked butt in The CW’s Nikita, and it looks like sheΓÇÖs brought her skintight leather pants and stilettos with her. Interesting takes with a man who is stalked by another man, and a young black woman who is stalked by a white guy.
