Premiere Week: Tuesday

Tonight's lineup is a bit of a strange mix. As I mentioned last night, I'm a huge fan of crime procedurals—the gorier and stranger, the better. What that says about me, I'm not so sure. But I also adore musicals.

Like I said, strange mix.

NCIS, 8 p.m. (CBS)
NCIS is about a team of Naval Criminal Intelligence Service agents who solve military-related crimes. The show's been around for ages, and I actually think it's only gotten better with age. I didn't watch this one from the start, but came in a few years ago during reruns. Again, I love the chemistry of the cast. And, of course, how could you go wrong with a curmudgeonly main character named Leroy Jethro Gibbs?

Glee, 8 p.m. (Fox)
Glee. I've only talked about this show a million times on my blog, so if you don't know this one's about a band of misfit toys high schoolers in Glee Club, then you've been living under a rock. I. Am. Excited. 'Nuff said.

NCIS: Los Angeles, 9 p.m. (CBS)
This spin-off of NCIS doesn't quite live up to its predecessor's standards, but it's an interesting if there's nothing else to watch while folding laundry. Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J make for a pretty hilarious duo at times, and I'm hoping that the promotion of Eric Christian Olsen to series regular ups the interest level; his character brought some much needed spice in the two episodes (?) he was in last season.

New tonight:

Running Wilde, 9:30 p.m. (Fox)
A Beverly Hills goof falls for an environmental activist.(via)
 I'm watching for Will Arnett.

(See EW's Fall Cheat Sheet to find out what else is premiering when.)


  1. NCIS is still on? Oh I gotta go get me some of the DVDs and catch up.
