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)
