Cable World’s Simon Applebaum tells us what he’s liked and what he hasn’t from the 1st month of cable’s upfront season ’06.

Most Promising Show: Oxygen’s action/adventure "Banshee" movie. Best Move: Disney made "Jetix" exclusive to Toon Disney this fall, instead of sharing it with ABC Family. Next Upfronts: Nick and Nat Geo Channel Thurs.
