Can non-geek shows get a fair hearing or will they be run out of San Diego?

The appeal of Comic-Con has been broadening for several years, but more than any previous Con, this year features panels and guests not designed to cater to the young genre fan demographic. With such decidedly non-geek-specific shows as  "Psych," "Glee" and "The Middle" getting special presentations, there's some question whether the hard-core fans will embrace the change or revolt. Does <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB002306" title="Patricia Heaton" href="/topic/entertainment/television/patricia-heaton-PECLB002306.topic">Patricia Heaton</a> have a seat at the table alongside <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB005325" title="J.J. Abrams" href="/topic/entertainment/j.j.-abrams-PECLB005325.topic">J.J. Abrams</a>? We're betting yes.
