New Girl (Fox) — Series premiere. Whoops, I didn’t realize this was debuting tonight, or I would’ve written a pilot review. Given the commenter civil wars that have been waged over Emily versus Zooey Deschanel, I expect the response to Zooey’s new show to similarly divided. But I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the “New Girl” pilot, and it’s mostly because I’m charmed by Zooey’s comedic performance. Worth watching, says I.

Raising Hope (Fox) — Season premiere. I wrongly ignored how great Martha Plimpton looked at the Emmys the other night. Mindy Kaling described her as having a “New Republic mind and a Maxim bod,” which is both accurate and a very Mindy Kaling sort of thing to say.

Glee (Fox) — Season premiere. Twentysomethings playing high school kids sing and dance.

Body of Proof (ABC) — Season premiere. Dana Delany stars in ABC’s version of a CBS show.

Unforgettable (CBS) — Series premiere. “Without a Trace” star Poppy Montgomery plays a woman with a rare condition that gives her perfect memory of everything, which means she’d be a huge pain in the ass to date. Anyway, it’s on CBS, so of course that means she’s going to help solve crimes.

NCIS & NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) — Season premiere. Naval personnel who wear civilian clothes and ignore military grooming standards help skew America’s perception of its military.

The Biggest Loser (NBC) — Season premiere. Anna Kournikova joins the show, because… erections help people lose weight?

Workaholics (Comedy Central) — Season premiere. Along with the new season of “Tosh.0” beginning tonight, this is probably the funniest thing on TV this evening. Watch a preview clip below.
