It’s finally here! The fall TV season is upon us and to prove it there were several TV show premieres and one sad farewell to a new favorite.
First, it was the last episode of The Middleman last night. Wendy was caught in a nasty alternate universe and with Escape from NY references flying fast and loose it was a total winner. I’ll miss this bright spot on my weekly viewing schedule. I hope it gets picked up for a new season.
On the up side, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill both had season premieres last night on The CW. So, what did you think? Prison Break returned to Fox with that new It Takes a Thief style storyline, too. Now that could be something I can get into. Did you miss them? Check the network websites for online and repeat airings.
Now let’s see what’s happening tonight!
Tonight on TV
90210 premieres on The CW and for all the hype it better be the best show on TV ever. It’s two hours of gossipy goodness and it’s that or more politics.
Yes, it’s time for the Republican National Convention, which will shift your TV viewing depending where you live.
NBC has America’s Got Talent and then convention coverage
ABC has Wipeout and Wanna Bet, and then convention coverage.
CBS goes with NCIS and Big Brother and then convention coverage.
Fox goes with a double dose of House.
Over on cable

Janice Dickinson is stirring up trouble on Oxygen and The Stagers take on another challenge on HGTV.
