We miss Stars Hollow already.

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 and GLOBAL TV in Canada||SHARK||10-11PM||Star Trek Nerd Alert: We love Jeri Ryan.|

|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||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 and GLOBAL TV in Canada||NUMB3RS||10-11PM||Bringing

|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|

|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.|

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.|

|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.|
