Deception (NBC) Series Debut: It was originally titled Infamous, but NBC wised up and went with something more Revenge-y. In Deception (see? Better already), a police detective (Meagan Good) goes undercover to solve the mysterious death of her former BFF, a socialite heiress—even if she has to risk being seduced by Hamptons high society, which she totally will. Deception doesn’t nail the spicy soapiness of Revenge, and doesn’t even come close to the forensic grimness of The Killing (whew!), but since Revolution won’t return to this timeslot until March(!), you could do worse.
The Bachelor (ABC) Season Premiere: Sean Lowe (a Bachelorette leftover) sifts through dozens of desperate crazies to find Miss Right as ‘Merica watches, rapt. This fucking franchise is just going to regenerate itself forever, ain’t it?
Bunheads (ABC Family) Return: Remember this? Michelle heads back to Las Vegas and lands a sweet gig as a magician’s assistant—but what will become of the lil’ bunheads (and aspiring ABC Fam teen 'hos) back in Stars Hollow, er, Paradise?
The Mob Doctor (Fox) Series Finale: It’s finally over. Stay tuned for Kevin Bacon chasing serial killers!
