BROTHERS is a comedy about a former NFL hot shot who learns that even though you can always go home again, doing so might be more difficult than you think. MIKE TRAINOR (Michael Strahan) seemingly has it all - he's a good-looking, wealthy and recently retired NFL player living the high life in New York City, but he's about to get sidelined. When Mike gets a phone call from his mom, ADELE (CCH Pounder), who orders him home to Houston, he quickly realizes that the more his life has changed, the more his family has stayed the same. His brother CHILL (Daryl Chill Mitchell), whose life changed drastically after a car accident left him in a wheelchair, is struggling to keep Trainor's, his sports-themed restaurant, afloat. Even though the publicity from his famous brother might help business, Chill doesn't want help from Mike. The rivalry between the brothers is exactly the same as they were when they were kids. If they can stop their bickering, put aside their differences and learn to be teammates, Mike and Chill might just turn out to be each other's biggest asset. Wedged between Mike and Chill are their parents. Their father, whom everyone refers to as COACH (Carl Weathers), is the local high school football coach and the conservative, opinionated alpha male of his clan. Coach thinks he runs the show, but it's actually Adele who calls the shots. Saucy, stern and a schemer, she is the mastermind behind this family. And when she learns that Mike's business manager took off with all his money, she orchestrates a plan to keep Mike in Houston, save Chill's restaurant and bring the family back together under one roof again. Adele's plan helps Mike realize that his family - however dysfunctional they may be - is the only one he's got. And although he may not have a penny to his name, as long as he's surrounded by people who love him, he'll always be a rich man. watch

Is Your Favorite Show in Danger?

It's that time of year: The networks are looking ahead to January and their midseason schedules, but some fall shows will have to be canceled to make room for the new stuff. Here's our list of 15 at-risk shows, many of which have posted significant ratings declines. Others are expensive to produce, a little long in the tooth, or just aren't performing as well as their timeslot competition — or even other shows on their own networks. Read about the issues each faces and then weigh in on which deserve to stay — or go.

(We'll keep updating the list of renewals and cancellations at the bottom of the page, so check back for the latest scheduling news.)

Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, Sept. 25, 2009

Medium
9/8c CBS
The paranormal drama about creepy spirits, dark unknowns and a psychic soccer mom who sees dead people does some strange channeling: Canceled by NBC, the show now rematerializes on CBS, completing a ghostly night on the Eye network. (Ghost Whisperer precedes the show.) In the Season 6 opener, Allison struggles through the aftermath of her brain surgery and its potential lasting impact on her life. This also being a crime drama, there's some bad-guy intrigue: A TV-station owner enlists Devalos and Scanlon to probe the purported stalking of his station's sportscaster — who also happens to be his wife. Natalie Zea and Pruitt Taylor Vince guest star.

Read on for previews of Brothers, Dollhouse, The Prisoner, Law & Order, Ghost Whisperer. read more
