No. 12 (tie) 'No Ordinary Family' (ABC), 'Running Wilde' (FOX)

On the one hand, there's "No Ordinary Family," a live-action "The Incredibles" about a family of four (headed by Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz) who suddenly develop super powers. Chiklis and Benz's best friends, Romany Malco ("Weeds") and Autumn Reeser ("The O.C.") are a delight and there's every indication that if it doesn't get too caught up in the drama of it all, it'll be fun family fare.<br>
<br>
On the other, there's "Running Wilde," about a wealthy do-nothing (Will Arnett) and his quest to win over his environmental activist childhood sweetheart (Keri Russell). It has us chomping at the bit to see -- it's from the man who brough us "Arrested Development," how could it not -- and we really are willing it to greatness. The original pilot didn't live up to our hopes, but reassurances from the creative team that they too weren't 100% satisfied, and a laid out plan of how they're going to fix it has brought us back over to its side.<br>
<br>
Give them both a chance.<br>
