Anthology series are always judged retrospectively by memories of their best, while current anthologies are judged by the last two or three (or so it seems, anyhow.) I think the Ira Steven Behr incarnation was pretty uniformly bad, though.
But I'll sure be happy to try it out, especially if it's not on a ten o'clock. I do wonder whether they'll rule out SF entirely or limit themselves exclusively to horror. And whether they'll do short story adaptations.
