|FOX and GLOBAL TV in Canada||PRISON BREAK||8-9PM||Just when you thought PRISON BREAK couldn’t get anymore ludicrous… get ready for season three.|
|FOX||K-VILLE||9-10PM||Most definitely not brought to you by the good folks at the New Orleans Bureau of Tourism|
|Tues. Sept. 18||CW||BEAUTY & THE GEEK||8-9PM||
We miss Stars Hollow already.
|Wed. Sept. 19||FOX and GLOBAL TV in Canada||BACK TO YOU||8-8:30PM||
Kelsey Grammer returns to that place where everybody knows his name — and by that place we mean ‘TV’. Bet you thought we were going to say CHEERS didn’t you? Didn’t you!
|FOX and GLOBAL TV in Canada||‘TIL DEATH||8:30 – 9PM||‘TIL DEATH — also known as — how we feel when we watch this show.|
|FOX||KITCHEN NIGHTMARES||9PM-10PM||We’d say something negative about yet another FOX reality TV offering, but frankly we’re scared of Chef Gordon Ramsay|
|CW||AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL||8-9PM||Let’s hope the contestants are smarter than Miss South Carolina.|
|CW||GOSSIP GIRL||9-10PM||OMG! We like totally can’t wait to live vicariously through twenty-six year olds playing high school students. No seriously, our inner thirteen year old girl is going suffering through withdrawl since the cancellation of THE OC.|
|CBS||KID NATION||8-10PM||Perhaps you’ve heard about it! Investigations! Angry Parents! The end of reality TV! We can’t wait!|
|Thur. Sept. 20||CBS||SURVIVOR and Global TV in Canada||8-10PM||
SURVIVOR CHINA! For your first challenge, guess which of these children’s toys contain lead paint.
|Sun. Sept. 23||CBS||60 MINUTES||7-8PM||
Still too young to tune in.
|CBS||VIVA LAUGHLIN||8-9PM||A musical drama comedy hybrid set in Las Vegas. Place your bets… how many episodes until it’s cancelled?|
|CBS||COLD CASE||9-10PM||Five seasons in, never seen an episode.|
|CBS and GLOBAL TV in Canada||SHARK||10-11PM||Star Trek Nerd Alert: We love Jeri Ryan.|
|FOX and GLOBAL TV in Canada||THE SIMPSONS||8-8:30PM||Just for fun, how about a costume change this season. Blue pants and shorts are so 1990.|

|FOX and GLOBAL TV in Canada||FAMILY GUY||9-10PM||Another FOX gem brought back from the dead! Can someone please hire theTVaddict to run FOX.|
|CW||CW NOW||8-8:30PM||CW NOT.|
|CW||ONLINE NATION||8:30-9PM||It’s called YouTube.|
|CW||LIFE IS WILD||8-9PM||We’re WILD about this show (get it!) No really, it stars Stephanie Niznik (Nina from EVERWOOD) — thus a MUST WATCH.|
|Mon. Sept. 24||CBS||HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER||8-8:30PM||
Our favorite CBS program is back. And we have a feeling, this season’s going to be LEGEN… (wait for it)… DARY!
|CBS||THE BIG BANG THEORY||8:30-9PM||Now I know what you’re thinking. From the ‘guys who brought you TWO AND A HALF MEN’ doesn’t exactly scream ‘funny.’ But give the show at least one chance. Kaley Cuoco rocks.|
|CBS||TWO AND A HALF MEN||9-9:30PM||Any chance the CSI scribes will ‘off’ these MEN when they write an episode this season?|
|CBS||RULES OF ENGAGEMENT||9:30-10PM||Rule #1… to quote Homer Simpson, “be more funny.”|
|CBS||CSI: MIAMI||10-11PM||And just like that, CBS’s night of funny comes to a screeching halt.|
|NBC||CHUCK||8-9PM||Meet Chuck, or, as I like to think of him — the TV Addict if he had his own show.|
|NBC and GLOBAL TV in Canada||HEROES||9-10PM||Perhaps you’ve heard about it. This little known show, NBC rarely talks about it. Oh who are we kidding. Kristen Bell, David Anders… we’re counting down the days.|
|NBC and Global TV in Canada||JOURNEYMAN||10-11PM||Flawless pilot with one big problem — you need to be a PhD to keep track of the story — or at the very least be smarter than a fifth grader.|
|Tues. Sept. 25||ABC||DANCING WITH THE STARS||8-9PM||
Three words: Go Jennie Go!
|ABC||THE BACHELOR||9-10PM||THE BACHELOR could learn a little something from DANCING WITH THE STARS. If you want the TV Addict to get excited, cast a 90210 Alum. Free advice for next season: Meet Ian Ziering the bachelor?|
|ABC||BOSTON LEGAL||10PM||Wanna bet William Shatner does something wacky?|
Another CBS show we’ve never seen.
|THE UNIT||9-10PM||See above!|
|CBS and GLOBAL TV in Canada||CANE||10-11PM||Yes, we’re slightly bitter Jimmy Smitts isn’t starring in THE WEST WING: TNG — that said, CANE’s pilot was pretty damn sweet. (Pun indented. You’ll get it when you see the pilot)|
|NBC||LAW & ORDER SVU||10-11PM||This season’s special victim — the cast of LAW & ORDER CRIMINAL INTENT. Demoted to the USA Network, ouch!|

|NBC and GLOBAL TV in Canada||LIFE||10-11PM||Good show, bad title.|
|Thur. Sept. 27||ABC||UGLY BETTY||8-9PM||
The return of UGLY BETTY means the return of the Marc & Amanda podcast. Could we love Becki Newton and Michael Urie any more?
Down with Gizzie! Who’s with us?
Or as they’re calling it within the confines of ABC headquarters — BIG Re-Writes!
I’ve officially run out of witty filler for all the generic CBS procedurals that I simply don’t watch.
|CBS||WITHOUT A TRACE||10-11PM||See above.|
|NBC||MY NAME IS EARL||8-8:30PM||I know I’m supposed to like this show, I just don’t.|
|NBC||THE OFFICE||9-10PM||Pam’s 30% more fun! We’re 30% more excited for the new season|
|NBC||ER||10-11PM||Let us know if you think theTVaddict.com should jump back on the bandwagon for ER’s final season.|
|CW||SMALLVILLE||8-9PM||The addition of SuperGirl proves yet again that SMALLVILLE’S officially run out of ideas. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.|
|Fri. Sept. 28||CBS||GHOST WHISPERER||8-9PM||Honestly, who watches this show?|
|CBS||MOONLIGHT||9-10PM||Ever wonder what Logan Echolls would have been like as a Vampire. Wonder no more.|
|CBS and GLOBAL TV in Canada||NUMB3RS||10-11PM||Bringing
|NBC and GLOBAL TV in Canada||LAS VEGAS||10PM||Not to be confused with VIVA LAUGHLIN. Really. There’s no singing in this LAS VEGAS, we promise.|
|Sun. Sept. 30||ABC||EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION||8-9PM||
Who do I have to pay to get Ty and the gang over to my place?
Raise you hand if you think Edie’s really dead! Oh, you’re the one!
|ABC||BROTHERS & SISTERS||10-11PM||Sponsored by the America’s Vineyards|
|SHOWTIME/td>||DEXTER||9-10PM||We have a feeling Sgt. Doakes is in for a world of hurt. Nobody messes with our boy Dexter.|
|SHOWTIME/td>||BROTHERHOOD||10-11PM||Still going through SOPRANOS withdrawl? Showtime has the cure. Introducing BROTHERHOOD — it’s THE SOPRANOS with an Irish twist.|
|Mon. Oct. 1||CW||EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS||8-8:30PM||
Especially this woman.
|CW||ALIENS IN AMERICA||8:30-9PM||A genuinely funny show on the CW network? Perhaps we have been taken over by aliens.|

|CW||THE GAME||9:30-10PM||The Game: Find someone who watches this show.|
|Tues. Oct. 2||ABC||CAVEMAN||8-8:30PM||
No really, ABC is actually going through with this.
|CARPOOLERS||8:30-9PM||As much as we’d like to say something positive about this show, we can’t. Why? Because ABC remains the only network that doesn’t send theTVaddict.com screeners (and yes, we’re bitter!)|
|Wed. Oct. 3||ABC||PUSHING DAISIES||10-11PM||Set your PVR to Season’s Pass. PUSHING DAISIES is the MUST WATCH show of the season.|
|Thur. Oct. 4||NBC||30 ROCK||8-8:30PM||Jerry Seinfeld returns to TV in the 30 ROCK season premiere. Which means you officially have no excuse not to tune into last season’s funniest new show.|
|CW||SUPERNATURAL||9-10PM||Question for SUPERNATURAL fans. Would you love the show as much if the stars looked like this?|
|Fri. Oct. 5||NBC||FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS||9-10PM||The confusion is finally over. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS airs on Friday. Tune in.|
|Fri. Oct. 12||ABC||WOMEN’S MURDER CLUB||9-10PM||Or as ABC should be calling it — really ANGRY housewives.|
|ABC||MEN IN TREES||10-11PM||
Turns out MEN IN TREES wasn’t cancelled last year. Here’s hoping ABC treats it a little better this season.

|Thur. Oct. 25||NBC||SCRUBS||9:30-10PM||Eighteen episodes and counting. Enjoy them while they last. No really, that wasn’t meant to be sarcastic. Really do enjoy them, because once they’re gone — all we’ll be left with is reruns.|
