2. 'Unforgettable'

The heroine of the CBS drama "Unforgettable," which debuted in 2011, is red-haired Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), a detective with the ability to remember almost any detail. Carrie originally worked for the police department in Syracuse, N.Y. before moving to Queens when her ex-boyfriend (Dylan Walsh), who also used to be her police partner in Syracuse, enlists her aid with a mystery he's trying to solve.

The show was the subject of a brief switch when its network, CBS, announced it was canceled at the end of its first season in May 2012. However, the month after that the network decided to continue with the show and chose to air its second season during this summer.
