Doris Roberts and Patricia Heaton
Cripes, are you already behind?
It's OK, most of us are. Especially since every major network fed us new stuff again last night. All night. If it weren't so much fun to watch television and talk about it, this fall season would be exhausting!

"We're resetting the series emotionally for all of the characters," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells TVGuide.com. "What the season seems to be doing is trying to keep everyone off-balance. The best-laid plans for all of our characters might be very different than we think they are. It also reinforces the relationship that all of our people have. We see in a way how close this group is and how much they needed each other, even in that time that they were apart."
At the core of that group, of course, is Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), who Brennan rejected last season...
Katy Perry is too sexy for Sesame Street.
Sesame Workshop, the production company behind PBS' children's show, has pulled a Katy Perry music video that was scheduled to air on the 41st season after receiving complaints about the singer's cleavage in the clip.
Supernatural (Friday, 9/8c, the CW)
Cult alert: This long-running horror show moves to a new night. The story picks up a year after last season's apocalyptic finish, with Sam mysteriously emerging from his hellish purgatory to interrupt brother Dean's domestic bliss. Time to rejoin the fight against evil, this time with the help of their mother's family, led by Grandfather Samuel (The X-Files' Mitch Pileggi). Supernatural follows the final-season premiere of Smallville (8/7c), which is titled "Lazarus" and features a guest appearance by John Schneider as the fallen Jonathan Kent.

Let's take them in sequential order. Starting at 8/7c with ABC's My Generation, about which I said in TV Guide's Fall Preview issue: "Welcome to 'Gen Zzzz' — as in: Wake me up when these stereotypes get over themselves. Generation's originality gap squanders its distinctive tone and promising young cast."
To elaborate: Bundling tiresome clichés in fancy but irritating new wrapping, My Generation follows nine members of an Austin, Texas high school's Class of 2000 a decade after graduation, as a documentary camera crew follows them around — as it did back in 2000, although apparently that documentary was never released...
