    A smartly conceived and well executed legal drama with a strong star (Julianna Margulies) at its core and, even better, a terrifically timely hook.

    Ted is a seriously wacky show and deserves to be seen.

    This is one of those potboilers where the good guys (Madfadyen as a pious friar, Sewell as a master builder) are impossibly noble, suffering in a lawless time through the murderous machinations of the endlessly scheming villains (most notably McShane hamming it up as a cunningly ambitious church official).

    Divorced at 42, with two young daughters he dotes on, Louie is too sour and smart to be a true sad sack, but his ambling acid-laced misadventures have a raw and revealingly witty electricity, especially when he's sparring with his comedian buddies.

    Count me in. Nix knows you can't play the old cliches straight, so each shootout and car chase--and there's plenty of mayhem in the fast-paced pilot--is infused with an "oh, c'mon" over-the-top goofiness.

    This appealing and emotionally engaging series about life in a weight-loss summer camp comes with high expectations

    It's an awfully attractive cast, and while the pilot has an often grim tone, it's enjoyable to watch and should fit comfortably into the NCIS network's schedule.

    There’s plenty of life in this deluxe entertainment, with each episode expanding the world of friends and family who have a stake in Lux’s future. So far, I find myself rooting for just about everyone in this feel-good show that’s refreshingly unafraid to wear its feelings openly.

    I got many more sustained belly laughs out of the show that follows Sunny in an under-the-radar sneak preview.

    Bear in mind that if Men were any more low-key, it might evaporate in front of you. This seriocomic slice of life is best when we're at the diner or on a hike with these superbly acted smaller-than-life not-quite-heroes (Braugher, Ray Romano and Scott Bakula).

    If I had to choose between this and watching Michael Scott take a final lap around the tired Office halls of Dunder Mifflin on NBC--its dreadful companion comedy Outsourced isn't even an option--I'm leaning toward the drop-dead-deadly assassin.

    This is a solid hour that feels perfectly attuned to the CBS lineup, although it's less formulaic than what you usually find on Fridays.

    Terriers has license to entertain, and this fall, that's saying something.

    It's a brash, enjoyable hour that doesn't take itself very seriously, though fighting for their underdog clients is very serious business.

    In an effort to (one hopes) broaden the show's appeal, Human Target immediately welcomes two new regular female characters, a rare example of tweaking a formula and making it even more fun to watch.

    Bones reunites its team of squints after a 7-month break, and as is often the case, the mystery that brings them back together takes a back seat to the enjoyable interplay of these eccentric, lovable characters.

    Their [Courteney Cox & Jennifer Aniston's] scenes are enjoyable enough, but pale next to the wine-sodden antics of Jules' circle of friends as they play a hilarious "movie mash-up" drinking game that Jules somehow can't get the hang of. Cougar Town developed in its first season from a crude and rather desperate sex farce to a terrifically enjoyable ensemble piece that doesn't need big guest stars to zing. (Although if it brings more eyeballs to the show, all the better.)

    Fringe return in fine form, with Fringe possibly taking top honors as the Show of the Night. It's that good.

    I'm already sold. Plimpton is sensational as Jimmy's tough-as-nails mom, who'd just as soon drop the baby at the fire station, but we soon learn she has a way with a lullaby. Leachman is a riot, Garret Dillahunt scores as Jimmy's proudly immature dad, and special props go to the stunt babies.

    Whitechapel is like a British Criminal Minds, albeit with a much more appealing sense of macabre wit in its appreciation for the history of Grand Guignol.

    Circus is a series with an abundance of life, and reality. If you decide to run away from the regular network fare to join this company for the next few weeks, can't say I blame you.

    Tension runs high throughout this densely layered story, which is well worth your time. Hope all the Super Bowl exposure pays off for this one.

    Rescue Me is going into its twilight fully locked and loaded.
