Good news! MSNBC Countdown outcast Keith Olbermann will be moving to/taking over Current TV! What the hell is Current TV? Exactly. You have until spring to find it in your cable-channel list. ---

What’s new tonight:
Traffic Light (Fox) Series Debut: Looks like Super Bowl promotion and critical hype didn’t help The Chicago Code set Monday night on fire; ratings were simply “pretty good,” not “holy fuck!” as expected. Clever new couples-comedy Traffic Light has a milder promotional and critical push behind it, hence, lower expectations. Read all about it in True TV (Item 3).

No Ordinary Family, V, Detroit 187 (ABC) If you like any (or, god forbid, all) of ABC’s current Tuesday-night lineup, watch ‘em now while you can—it’s doubtful any will survive the 2011 season. Too bad; there’s a wealth of fine actors here … and Michael Imperioli (yeah, yeah, kickin’ a guy when he’s down).

Parenthood (NBC) Remember Sarah’s (Lauren Graham) ex-husband, semi-successful rock star Seth? Parenthood is counting on “no,” since they’ve replaced the original actor (who appeared once in the pilot episode last year) with John Corbett, who also happens to be a semi-successful rock star—watch for him at a state fair near you this summer. Corbett makes the first of several Parenthood appearances tonight when his band happens to be touring through town. Who knew Berkley had a state fair?

Also new tonight:
NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, The Good Wife (CBS); The Biggest Loser (NBC); Glee, Raising Hope (Fox); One Tree Hill, Hellcats (The CW); White Collar (USA); Tosh.0, The Onion SportsDome (Comedy Central); The Fashion Show (Bravo); Melissa & Joan: Joan Knows Best (We); Southland (TNT); Lights Out (FX); Conan (TBS)

Preview: Traffic Light has Roy from The Office AND the guy from Scott Pilgrim—how can you miss?
