Touch

Michael Landon and the grumpy bearded bloke interfere in the lives of more unhappy bystanders in an effort to improve their lifes and provide uplifting tv.  Or was it the red headed Irish woman and the older scowly black lady interfere in the lives of more unhappy bystanders in an effort to improve their lifes and provide uplifting tv. No wait, it's some silent kid and Kieffer Sutherland interfere in the lives of more unhappy bystanders in an effort to improve their lifes and provide uplifting tv. 

So far the only difference between Touch and either of these other shows is Sutherland's acting (excellent) and the removal of some amorphous idea of God sending his angels to sort out our lives.  Creator Tim Kring, the man whose couldn't quite hold Heroes together, may have something more than a string of feel good stories up his sleeve for this Quantum physics revision of the heavenly helpers show for the Dawkins and Hawkings generation but based on the second episode my expectations are low.
