This fall’s TV season was missing something. There were no breakout hits as big as last year’s (“Lost” or “Desperate Housewives”), but that wasn’t it. Until a few weeks ago, I couldn’t quite figure out what it was.
Then the networks began to start plugging their midseason shows. And though I’ve seen too many annoying “Jake in Progress” previews to count, a few other ads hinted at what the mundane fall season needed – and it sure as hell wasn’t John Stamos’s return to primetime: TV missed its antiheroes.
Why do you think more people care about low-life conman Sawyer on “Lost” than do-good Dr. Jack? It’s fun to root for the bad guy
