The show moves to Wednesdays' this season and will pit the old against the young players.

Sunday, September 19
Boardwalk Empire (9pm on HBO – Available in HD) – New series on HBO that almost makes me want to re-subscribe to HBO. I watched an extended clip from the pilot episode and consider this one of the best bets of the season. The story is of prohibition-era Atlantic City with the first episode written by Martin Scorsese. If you have HBO do not miss this series. And if you don’t have HBO you may consider subscribing or save this one in your Netflix queue.

Chuck (8pm on NBC – Available in HD) Season 4 premiere
Dancing with the Stars (8pm on ABC – Available in HD) Season 11 premiere
House (8pm on Fox – Available in HD) Season 7 premiere
Rules of Engagement (8:30pm on CBS – Available in HD) Season 5 premiere
The Event (9pm on NBC – Available in HD) New series for NBC with a familiar theme – A conspiracy thriller where a regular guy investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiancée and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history. I personally will be recording this one with a wait-and-see attitude. I like what I’ve seen so far about the show & the lead actor Jason Ritter should be good in this one. But I’ve been burned too much with shows like this and would prefer to make sure it will continue before investing in it.. You know like Flash Forward for instance.
Lone Star (9pm on Fox – Available in HD) This is another new series to check out in my opinion. I had the opportunity to watch an extended clip from the season 1 premiere of Lone Star and it was definitely something that caught my eye. The story of this show involves a smooth-talking con man and his dad both of which have been running scams for years. The son lives a triple life (two of them fake) and wants to build a new, less dubious life. David Keith portrays the father in this show which has a premium cable feel to it. I definitely recommend you check this one out.
Two and a Half Men (9pm on CBS – Available in HD) Season 8 premiere
Mike & Molly (9:30pm on CBS – Available in HD) A new comedy series for CBS. I watched an extended clip of the season premiere from this show and came away pleasantly surprised. I expected very little from this one, but found it to be quite funny. It’s about an overweight cop and a fourth grade teacher who meet at an overeaters anonymous meeting in Chicago and fall in love. Yeah, that plot didn’t appeal to me either, but it actually looks pretty good.
Castle (10pm on ABC – Available in HD) Season 3 premiere
Chase (10pm on NBC – Available in HD) New series where a team of U.S. marshals hunt down America’s most dangerous fugitives.
Hawaii Five-O (10pm on CBS – Available in HD) New series that is a re-make of the popular show that aired from 1968 to 1980 (wow). It’s being re-cast with an elete unit/task force set up to fight crime in Hawaii. I saw a short clip of the premiere episode and it was okay. Might be worth checking out as it’s following the formula of the quite successful show that preceded it.
