Jenny’s TV Guide: Monday September 1

Monday marks the season finale [and quite possibly the series series finale] of The Middleman on ABC Family at 10/9c. More importantly, tonight also marks the start of the Fall season. On the CW, we’ve got the premieres of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill, starting at 8/7c. While FOX offers up the 2-hour season premiere of Prison Break, starting at 8/7c.

Also premiering tonight is the series premiere of Raising the Bar on TNT at 10/9c. The series follows the lives and cases of young lawyers who have been friends since law school but now work on opposing sides. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack on Saved By the Bell & NYPD Blue) stars as an idealistic public defender who will stop at nothing to help those who cannot help themselves. Gloria Reuben (ER) plays his passionate and protective boss. Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) plays the imperious judge who hears their cases. The series also stars Teddy Sears (Ugly Betty), Melissa Sagemiller (Sleeper Cell), Currie Graham (Boston Legal), J. August Richards (Angel & Conviction) and Jonathan Scarfe (Into the West).

Finally, tonight is the first night of the Republican National Convention on ABC, CBS & NBC at 10/9c.
