Justified (FX) Season Premiere: On the downside, Winona (Natalie Zea) is gone, but Season 4 of Justified is packing in the guest stars—including cable drama’s unexpected new go-to guy, comedian Patton Oswalt. This time around, U.S. Marshal Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) works a three-decade-old Kentucky cold case tied to his crook father, while Boyd (Walton Goggins) runs up against a snake-handling preacher even more adept at separating folks from their money than he is—of course, this will not stand. What will stand: True TV and Brewvies (677 S. 200 West; 21+) are once again bringing cable-less beer enthusiasts Justified, every Tuesday at 8 p.m. Be there.
Cougar Town (TBS) Season Premiere: The only difference between the old Cougar Town on ABC and the new version on TBS: more wine guzzling and saltier language—advantage, cable! Courteney Cox & the Cul de Sac Crew are still a crack comedy ensemble saddled with a crap show title (how about More Wine Guzzling & Saltier Language?), and the six episodes sent out to media types easily stand up to anything from the previous three seasons back in broadcastville. Any takers to save Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 from ABC next? Comedy Central? Netflix? HGTV?
The Joe Schmo Show (Spike) Season Premiere/Reboot: About 10 years ago, Spike pranked a reality-house contestant by surrounding him with actors and fucking with him mercilessly—and he still never caught on. Now, The Joe Schmo Show is back, because …? Spike can’t survive on Bar Rescue alone? (I say it totally can.)
