CBS (Come Buy Something) announced today that it's new series, Auto Zone, would air this Sunday night at 8pm est after it's primer, Blagojevich.
Co-writers for the series and new hybrid owners, Richard Wagoner, Alan Mulally and Robert Nardelli said that in no way was the show a sequel to Rod Serling's, The Twilight Zone which was popular 50 years ago and featured trenchant, sci-fi parables that "explored humanity's hopes, despairs, prides and prejudices in metaphoric ways."
"We are innovators and will in no way copy anything else that has already been done," said Nardelli. "Our sole purpose is to entertain the American consumer."
Critics disagreed, however, with Nardelli's response and said that some of the new show's episodes such as, "It's a Good Life," "Where Is Everybody?," "Walking Distance," and "Escape Clause" seemed so close to the predecessor that it was eerie.
