Surprising the hell out of me and probably show creator Seth MacFarlane, Fox has renewed American Dad (IMHO, the funniest of the Seth canon) for the 2011-12 season. But will they move out of the 6:30 shit slot? ---

What's new tonight:
Justified (FX) Of all FX's excellent originals (which, currently-running, include Tuesday's Lights Out and Thursday's Archer), Justified is the closest to an indie-flick that you never want to end. It's smart, gritty, funny and just flat-out engrossing once you step into U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens' (Timothy Olyphant) Elmore Leonard-drawn world. And, even more so than Season 1, Justified is a full-ensemble coup, not just a one-man show: Walter Goggins, Natalie Zea and the entire expanded cast are killing it every week. But, for some reason, Season 2's ratings are down slightly from last year. Maybe FX shouldn't have moved it to Wednesdays (where the near-great Terriers died) from its proven Tuesday slot, who knows? Whatever it is, it ain't right and it's up to you to watch harder. Get on that. Tonight's episode (about a hijacked shipment of painkillers) even features a rockin' roadhouse cameo by Dave Alvin of The Blasters. Come on!

America's Next Top Model (The CW) Season Premiere: More girls, more drama, more Tyra. Not much else to tell ya, other than the Cycle 16 premiere is followed by ...

Shedding for the Wedding (The CW) Series Debut: Fatso couples competing against other fatso couples to lose weight before their nuptials so the network will pay for it all? Sorry, The CW is for singles size zero and under only—try subletting this to CMT or VH1.

Also new tonight:
The Middle, Better With You, Modern Family, Mr. Sunshine, Off the Map
(ABC); Survivor, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (CBS); Minute to Win It, Law & Order: SVU (NBC); American Idol (Fox); Hot in Cleveland, Retired at 35 (TV Land); Ghost Hunters, Face Off (Syfy); Man vs. Food (Travel); Conan (TBS) 

Preview: When drugs go missing, you go looking for Boyd (Walter Goggins) on Justified ...
