Secret Girlfriend (Comedy Central) — Series premiere. I saw a screening of this last night, and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. It’s about a guy — you, the viewer — dealing with a psycho ex-girlfriend and a potential new love interest, and the crazy exploits of your two slacker best friends. It’s got some decent laughs, and I approve of the gratuitous sexiness, but it has the pacing and feel of a beer commercial: great for a 30-second spot (or even 3-minute sketch), but I doubt it will hold people’s attention for a full half-hour. Read a more in-depth review here.
CSI: NY (CBS) — Skeet Ulrich begins a three-episode stint as a mastermind serial killer. Hey, stop laughing!
South Park (Comedy Central) — Season 13 premiere. Here’s hoping that it’s still as low-brow and sharp ever.
Modern Family (ABC) — Best new sitcom of the season (this week I’m giving it a slight edge over “Community”). Prediction: “Hank” gets canceled and “Better Off Ted” takes its spot in the Wednesday night lineup.
Rescue Ink Unleashed (NatGeo) — I’ve been meaning to watch this but haven’t tuned in yet. A bunch of badass tattooed guys go around saving poor animals from the humans who mistreat them. No, I’m not crying! YOU’RE crying!
