Summer is the perfect time to take a vacation, so book a trip to your couch and get to know the officers on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The Golden Globe-winning Fox comedy stars Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg as know-it-all Detective Jake Peralta, who is forced to (at least try to) rein in his goofy nature and hilarious pranks when he gets a new boss, Emmy winner Andre Braugher as the hilariously deadpan and no-nonsense Captain Holt.

If you like Syfy's Face Off (as I do), then you're already predisposed to enjoy the channel's new reality competition series Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge (Tuesday, 10/9c), which often feels like a shot-by-shot copy, complete with fetching female host (Farscape's Gigi Edgley), insane time pressures in producing elaborately fanciful Henson-esque creatures, and a three-member judging panel including the likable Brian Henson (Jim's son and chairman of the Henson Company with its fabled Creature Shop). What Creature Shop may lack in originality it makes up for in creative energy, with the contestants further challenged in mentoring sessions by being made to focus on having the full-body costumes be fully functional for the skilled Henson puppeteers within. The climactic "Screen Test" reveals are fun to watch, and the critiques (as in Face Off) are smartly constructive.
Twenty-one Super Sundays ago, Andre Braugher kicked off his episodic-TV career as hard-charging Baltimore Det. Frank Pembleton on Homicide: Life on the Street. The role would earn him his first of seven Emmy nominations — he has won twice, for Homicide and the FX miniseries Thief — and lead to gigs playing doctors (Gideon's Crossing, House), military men (Last Resort) and even a car salesman (Men of a Certain Age).
Now he's come full circle, again embodying a police officer, albeit a very different one: Capt. Ray Holt, the deadpan commanding officer on...

Sarah Shahi, Paige Turco and Taraji P. Henson
Last Thursday, I was honored to moderate a panel at the "Made in NY" PaleyFest at New York's Paley Center, celebrating the third season of CBS's terrific cyber-thriller Person of Interest. Before the discussion with many of the show's cast and executive producer Jonathan Nolan, there was a screening of this week's episode (Tuesday, 10/9c) — the best of the season to date, and a fairly pivotal one — that is especially enjoyable in how it showcases the series' fabulous femmes fatales. With the target du jour a chameleon Casanova, the women must act as nightclub and social-media bait: an off-duty and glammed-up Carter (Taraji P. Henson), the ferociously trigger-happy Shaw (Sarah Shahi, hilariously playing against her natural beauty) and Reese's favorite fixer, the alluring Zoe Morgan (recurring co-star Paige Turco). A CBS contact refers to them as "Finch's Angels," and if they want to spin themselves off, that would be fine by me. A scene where the three ladies of the evening compare their weaponry is a riot. So's a later scene in which Shaw reflects on her disdain for relationships. (When I asked Shahi if Shaw has a soft side, she wasted no time in barking a "No.")
Cote de Pablo
Among last week's more encouraging TV signs: On the first Tuesday of the official fall season, it felt a bit like a return to the good (or at least simpler) old days when network TV was the dominant game in town, and crowded time periods could support more than one hit. In prime time's starting position of 8/7c, there appear to be three blockbusters duking it out:
