What's new tonight:
Survivor: Redemption Island (CBS) Season Premiere: Where most critics are questioning bringing back Hairy Russell for Survivor: Loser All-Stars, I still wanna know: What's the fascination with Boston Rob? Seriously, fuck that guy.
Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (CBS) Series Debut: The Only TV Column That Matters™ is a fan of the original Criminal Minds; it’s more densely plotted and darker than the rest of the CBS forensic-crime fluff it’s lumped in with, and the cast clicks like few others on television—even when they inexplicably dump one blonde (A.J. Cook) and replace her with a younger-model blonde (Rachel Nichols), it still works. So, even though spin-off Suspect Behavior is top-lined by Forest Whitaker(!) and Janeane Garofalo(!!), and CM techie Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) will be pulling double-duty, I’m … uh, suspect.
Also new tonight:
The Middle, Better With You, Modern Family, Mr. Sunshine, Off the Map (ABC); Criminal Minds (CBS); Minute to Win It, Law & Order: SVU (NBC); American Idol (Fox); Hot in Cleveland, Retired at 35 (TV Land); Ghost Hunters Int’l, Face Off (Syfy); Man vs. Food (Travel); Conan (TBS)
Preview: Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, possibly CBS' most critically-reviled show since Shit My Dad Says. Not hard to see why ...
