Will "The Carrie Diaries" connect with CW viewers? Hard to say since some of the network's target audience was in elementary school when "Sex and the City" went off the air in 2004. True, "Sex and the City" lives on in reruns and big-screen movies, but as a prequel series "The Carrie Diaries" will have to stand on its own.The pilot episode gets off to a pretty decent start. "The Carrie Diaries" (7 p.m. Monday) doesn't re-invent the teen drama, but it does offer a comparatively tame take on the teen years, at least in its pilot episode. Tonally, "Carrie Diaries" is much closer to the late "Life Unexpected" than it is to "Gossip Girl," which ended its run last month. There's a surprising innocence to "The Carrie Diaries" and its lead character; if not for the "Sex and the City" cachet, it's difficult to imagine The CW picking this show up.
