Matt's Guide to Monday Night TV: New and Returning Shows

Two and a Half Men

This being such an epic week in the TV business, with the majority of new and returning shows premiering in the kickoff to the official TV season, I'm adjusting my "guide to the week" format all week to focus separately on each night as a whole: analyzing the programming strategies and showdowns while previewing the pilots and season openers I've seen in advance.

Monday in a Nutshell: ABC and CBS should continue to dominate. Dancing With the Stars has once again cast a buzz-worthy group — though some are wondering if they've overstepped and alienated their more mainstream fans with lightning-rod contestants like Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace. (Get over it, folks. It's a dancing show, all for fun.) And Castle makes for a fine nightcap. CBS' popular comedy lineup includes one new winner (Two Broke Girls) and one show in transition (Two and a Half Men) that's more talked about than almost any new fall series, while Hawaii Five-0 more than holds its own. Fox is shaking things up with its big-budget fantasy spectacular Terra Nova (which bows next week), which should open big at the very least. We'll see if its family-friendly tone attracts a broader-than-cult following. A Cuddy-free House (premiering Oct. 3) may be on its ...

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis

Friends with Benefits co-stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are not friends with sexting benefits, their reps tell US Weekly.

Jane Lynch

Our roundup of the most memorable moments of the Emmys:

14. Worst Opening-Number Follow-Up: Emmy host Jane Lynch takes viewers on a tour through a fictional building where all TV sets and characters supposedly reside. Highlights of this exercise in randomness: Lynch tests out the laugh track at The Big Bang Theory, horrifies the Mad Men ad guys with tales of fast-forwarding through commercials and Slushees her Glee alter ego. The song ends on the line, "There's no place like TV ... except for HBO -- it's not TV."

New Sing-Off Judge Sara Bareilles Returns to Her A Cappella Roots: "It Was a Really Good Fit"

The Sing-Off, Sara Bareilles

Before she sold a million records, before she had a No. 1 song and before she was nominated for three Grammy awards, Sara Bareilles was kind of a nerd, and she's not afraid to admit it.

"We would choreograph dances at parties instead of doing keg stands. We were all so nerdy together," she tells TVGuide.com of her college years spent in the UCLA a cappella group Awaken A Cappella.

"My experience in an a cappella group totally shaped me at a really impressionable time in my life as a performer. It gave me a lot of my confidence on stage, because I was someone who was really insecure and felt a little lost in college."

Fans first got a taste of Bareilles' a cappella chops on the Season 2 finale of The Sing-Off when she performed her hit record, "King of Anything" with The Backbeats, but now her expertise will really be put to the test as she takes a spot on the judges panel this season. The singer-songwriter replaces... read more

Dancing's Tom Bergeron to Chaz Bono Critics: Chill Out

Dancing With The Stars, Tom Bergeron

If there's one guarantee every Dancing with the Stars season, it's this: There is always a backlash against one contestant.

"They're freaking out about Bristol Palin. They're freaking out about Kate Gosselin. They're freaking out about Nicole Scherzinger. Now, it's Chaz [Bono]. Pick a season, pick a freakout," Tom Bergeron tells TVGuide.com. "Just relax already. It's a ballroom show, for God's sake! I have no idea why Chaz being on is a problem. I sort of expected there to be a reaction, but nothing this big. Chill out."

Hawaii Five-0: Can the Team Be Put Back Together?

Hawaii Five-0

McGarrett's in prison for murder. Kono's been stripped of her badge. Chin Ho has rejoined the Hawaii Police Department that once betrayed him. The governor is dead. Where does Hawaii Five-0 go from here?

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

"It's going to be a very different Five-0," executive producer Peter M. Lenkov says of the new season, which premieres Monday at 10/9c on CBS. "The most important thing is that they need to get back together. These people need each other. It's going to be fun seeing them put the pieces back together."

Helping to kick-start that effort is Lt. Cmdr. Joe White (Lost's Terry O'Quinn), who comes to Hawaii on a mission to exonerate McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin). "He was a mentor. He was his commanding officer," Lenkov says. "Given the kind of character that McGarrett is, imagine the guy who trained him." Adds O'Loughlin... read more
