TV Tonight: Glee, Running Wilde, Detroit 187 & More

Let's just ignore how several million of you opted for last night's season premiere of ABC's Dancing With the Stars (ack!) over Lone Star, Fox's delivery on the kind of cable-quality drama you always whine about being absent from regular TV, OK? ---

What's new tonight:
Glee (Fox) Season Premiere: There's a new football coach, two new students and a whole new relationship thing for Finn and Rachel. Other than that, same ol' singin', dancin' and snarkin' at McKinley High. Still waiting for the Motorhead medley.

Raising Hope (Fox) Series Debut: From the creator of My Name Is Earl comes My Name Is Earl With a Baby—simple as that. Raising Hope has a great cast (including Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt, Cloris Leachman and, briefly, Bijou Phillips) and a whole lotta Big Quirky Heart, if not an initial over-reliance on baby-shit jokes. Guess what the kiddie's name is?

Running Wilde (Fox) Series Debut: This is what Arrested Development might have been if the show centered on Job (Will Arnett), gave him back all of the Bluth family money and then replaced the rest of the cast with just Keri Russell (although AD's David Cross was added to the cast at the last minute). Since I can’t get me enough Will Arnett, bring it!

Detroit 187 (ABC) Series Debut: Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) is a grizzled cop saddled with an annoyingly fresh, non-grizzled partner in, you got it, Detroit. Oh, and 187 means murder. (Video preview below)

Sons of Anarchy (FX) Tonight's killer-as-usual episode has a surprise guest—at least, it was a surprise until it was ruined all over the Interwebs. Keep an eye out for Stephen King, so to speak.

Also new tonight:
NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles (CBS) Season Premieres; The Biggest Loser (NBC) Season Premiere; Parenthood (NBC); One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected (The CW); The Bad Girls Club (Oxygen); Flipping Out (Bravo); The Rachel Zoe Project (Bravo) Season Finale.

Looks like Detroit 187 learned a whole lotta shaky-camera tricks from The Shield:
