Tuesday's Overlooked TV: Early Edition


This week's Tuesday's Overlooked TV is the CBS series Early Edition.

Early Edition starred Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) as Gary Hobson, a stock broker in Chicago who, after his wife suddenly leaves him, begins receiving the next day's edition of the Chicago Sun-Times by a tabby cat. Yep. Although his friend Chuck tries to encourage him to use the advance knowledge of future events for monetary purposes, Gary instead tries to stop bad things reported in the paper from happening, sometimes with the assistance of a Chicago police detective, who doesn't understand how Gary gets his information.

The series ran for four seasons on CBS (1996-2000). The first two seasons were released on DVD, and reruns have appeared on The Family Channel and Hallmark Channel.

You can check out the pilot episode below. Thanks!

My wife and I used to love this show and were sad when it was cancelled, too soon I think.

When its cancellation was announced, there was a fan campaign to save it, to no avail. I believe reruns also ran on the Pax Network (now ION Television).

I never could stand Fisher Stevens. (That Michelle Pfeiffer gave him the time of day, much less was involved, always suggested there might be more than met the eye and ear, but who knows what that was...aside from Ms. Pfeiffer.)

I can see how Fisher can be hard to take. He has a bit of a "yappy dog" quality to him.

Well, one kind of fisher is a member of the weasel family...
