Premiere Week 2011: Tuesday

Premiering tonight:

NCIS 7–8 p.m. (CBS)

NCIS is one of those shows that really never fails to disappoint. The cast works so well together and the stories are always intriguing.

Glee 7–8 p.m. (FOX)

I stopped watching Glee about halfway through last season, but that was one-half being too busy and the other half disinterest. I caught all the songs though, which I still love ... which is why I'm including it here. Will I be watching season three (once I've caught up with two)? I haven't quite decided. Will I be listening? Yes.

NCIS: Los Angeles 8–9 p.m. (CBS)

I think I watch this show hoping it will turn into its namesake. It has yet to do so, but it's got promise.

New Girl 8–8:30 p.m. (FOX)

The show stars Zooey Deschanel as Jessica "Jess" Day, a well-liked, bubbly and adorable woman in her late 20s who is trying to get over her surprise breakup with her model boyfriend. She eventually finds a new place to stay when she moves in with three single guys: Nick, a bartender; Schmidt, a professional and modern-day casanova; and Coach, a former athlete-turned-trainer. Rounding out this unlikely bunch is Jessica's street-smart model friend Cece. Together, this group of friends try to help Jess learn a lot about love, life and mostly about herself, while at the same time learn a lot about themselves. (via)
I caught the pilot for this show for free via our Playstation and it's adorable. Zooey, as always, is cute and quirky. Her character's also a bit nerdy, which could be both a good or a bad thing. Good if the powers that be use the nerdy as a a good quality—we all know nerdy girls are awesome—bad if they turn her into a "dorky" stereotype. I'll continue to watch, in the hopes that they go the former route.

Body of Proof 9–10 p.m. (ABC)

I started watching this show when it came on midseason last year. It's actually really excellent, and a newish take on the crime procedural. (It's about a coroner who's got an atypical way of solving cases.) I really like Dana Delany's character—she's an odd mix of cold and caring. Her "sidekicks" (Geoffrey Arend and Windell Middlebrooks) are great, too.

Unforgettable 9–10 p.m. (CBS)

The series follows a former New York City police detective named Carrie Wells, who suffers from hyperthymesia, a rare medical condition that gives her the ability to remember everything. She is reluctantly asked by her former boyfriend and one-time partner to join his homicide unit after he asks for help with solving a case. The move allows her to do the one thing she has been trying to remember, that of finding out how her sister was murdered. (via)
I'm a sucker for crime procedurals, what can I say? This doesn't seem like a show I'll need to be in front of the TV screen for, waiting, each week, but it might be interesting.
