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

Dana Delany, Nicholas Bishop

Continuing a weeklong series of new-season analysis and previews, here's my take on how I see the new Tuesday lineups playing out.

Tuesday in a Nutshell: The no-brainer: CBS will continue to rule with its NCIS-NCIS: LA combo, and the new procedural-with-a-twist Unforgettable should fit right in, possibly putting a dent in ABC's midseason surprise Body of Proof, which roughly targets the same audience for female-driven crime dramas. Fox should make significant inroads with the younger demos, especially if Glee gets back its groove in this transitional graduation season (for some characters, anyway). The delightful New Girl deserves to break out, and may bolster the fortunes of my favorite comedy from last season, Raising Hope. On NBC, The Biggest Loser provides stability if not much excitement ... read more

Best New Fall Shows: Our Editors' Picks

Body of Proof, Hawaii Five-O

We've watched the pilot episodes of all the new fall shows and made our picks for the best new comedies and dramas.

Better With You (ABC)

Premise: Sisters Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan), a high-strung attorney, and Mia (Privileged's JoAnna Garcia), a free-spirited "inventor," are fundamentally different. Maddie lives with, but has not married, Ben (Josh Cooke), her boyfriend of nine years. "It's a valid life choice," she repeats throughout the pilot. Mia, on the other hand, has just agreed to marry Casey (Jake Lacy), her boyfriend of seven-and-a-half weeks. Kurt Fuller and Debra Jo Rupp play the girls' quirky parents.

Why We Like It: The chemistry among the six leads is fantastic, and the snappy dialogue is very funny. The show was created by Shana Goldberg-Meehan, one of the big brains behind Friends.

But ... Both sisters are... read more

Law & Order: SVU

According to Jim
8:30 pm/ET ABC
After eight seasons (which seemed to some like twice that many), this sitcom-that-gets-no-respect ends its run tonight with, appropriately enough, Jim's death. Heaven or hell? Jim is on trial before God (Lee Majors) and Satan (Erik Estrada). For Jim's sake, let's hope that there aren't any TV critics on the jury. Also helping usher in Jim's eternal reward (or torment) are guest stars Dan Aykroyd and Kimberly Williams-Paisley.

Read on for previews of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, ABC News Special: Earth 2100 , Paris Hilton's My New BFF, Man vs. Wild and Web Soup. read more

Mega Buzz on Chuck, Gossip Girl, Without a Trace, True Blood and More!

Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Chuck deserves a whole season, not just 13 episodes. Any chance of more? Darryl
MATT: Actually, yes. NBC entertainment president Ben Silverman says that while the current plan is to deliver 13 midseason episodes, depending on the ratings, "we may extend it out and continue it through the summer," where he thinks it could pair nicely with Friday Night Lights. "We're looking to ... keep [Chuck] incredibly viral and buzz-worthy until it returns, and then hopefully have it on our air for many years to come." That'd be Awesome. And even more so? I chatted up Scott Bakula at TNT's upfronts luncheon, and he's game for more Chuck, if need be.

Any scoop on Gossip Girl's Season 3? — F.R.
MICKEY: Speaking with TVGuide.com at the CW upfronts, Leighton Meester seemed to confirm that Georgina's plan to ... read more
