"Touch" is a great TV series and Kiefer Sutherland would be a perfect fit to make the TV series an even bigger hit! I'm glad that they air "Touch" during prime time hours because I'm thinking of getting DISH Networks Hopper that has a new PrimeTime Anytime feature! I co-worker at DISH told me about it and she said that my four major networks (CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX) get recorded all at the same time in HD during prime time hours everyday! I can’t wait till the Hopper is available so I can automatically have recorded shows like “Touch” on my DVR.
