Premiering Tonight:

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – ABC

According to critics, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is sure to please comic book fans, but the strong ensemble and brisk pacing help to make this better-than-average superhero show accessible to non-fanboys as well.

Trophy Wife – ABC

Critics say that charm, likeable characters, good chemistry, and an efficient pace help to make Trophy Wife a sly, insightful sitcom.

The Goldbergs – ABC

The pundits say The Goldbergs is at times too reliant on gimmicky references to 1980s pop culture, but it’s also sweet, sincere, and occasionally very funny.

Lucky 7 – ABC

Critics say Lucky 7 has an intriguing premise and a talented ensemble, but it doesn’t do enough to establish relatable, empathetic individual characters.

Chicago Fire S2 – NBC

In this drama’s second season, it appears that budget cuts may pose as much a threat to the men and women of Firehouse 51 as a three-alarm fire.


One of CBS’ most reliable hits, NCIS is back for an 11th season. Expect an uneasy detante between and Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons (Colin Hanks).


The NCIS formula has proven to be so successful that its spinoff is on it’s fifth season. This time out, Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J are hunting for nucleaur weapons.

Person of Interest S3 – CBS

Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson star in this police procedural — now in its fifth season — about a pair of lawment who take prevantative measures to stopping crime.

New Episodes Tonight:

Sons of Anarchy – FX

Critics say Sons of Anarchy continues to deliver an energetic blend of bracing action sequences, pitch black humor, and heartless violence.
