The CW trots out their new show, Reaper, tonight at 9 p.m. EDT. Sam (Brett Harrison, also Sam from The Loop) was born of parents who made a deal with the devil for his soul before he was conceived, and that means doing the devil's bidding, like tracking down souls that have escaped from hell and are on earth again. Ray Wise plays the devil, and Sock is his best friend (Sock is short for Wysocki). It's sort of like the male version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in spots. Kevin Smith directed the pilot episode that airs tonight.
