Critic's Guide to Thursday TV: Return of Bones and Burn Notice and More!

Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz

"Sort of like an eclipse — it doesn't happen that often." That's Angela's wry take on the remarkable sight of "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) crying copiously at a grisly crime scene, as Fox's Bones (9/8c) finally begins its seventh season, re-establishing ...

Name That Tune: This Fall's New TV Theme Songs

Zooey Deschanel

Kelsey Grammer was at a Robert Plant concert in Los Angeles this spring when the rocker and his Band of Joy performed the track "Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down." Listening to the song's lyrics as he sat in the Greek Theatre audience, Grammer realized the song was a perfect match for his character on Starz's Boss, the mercurial mayor of Chicago.

Matt's Guide to Thursday TV: Person of Interest, Vampire Diaries and More!

Jim Caviezel

CBS' Person of Interest (9/8c) is one of the fall's few new dramas of interest, and it appears to be a keeper. Though not without some formula aspects — this is CBS, after all, so things tend to get wrapped up pretty neatly by the hour's end — the intriguing Interest sends its damaged heroes on their high-tech vigilante missions under a tantalizing cloak of paranoid secrecy. Each week, there's also the promise of heightened and stylized mayhem at the hands of the coolly lethal Reese (Jim Caviezel), who's so unflappably taciturn in his explosive takedowns of rooms full of bad guys he can make Jack Bauer look like a blabbermouth wimp.

Reese's partner in crime-stopping, Michael Emerson as the mousy ...

Rules of Engagement Boss: "We're the Stepchild of the Schedule, But We're Always There"

David Spade, Wendi McLendon-Covey

Tom Hertz was waiting for the call, like he usually does.

After CBS pushed his Rules of Engagement's dreaded Saturday premiere one week to Oct. 15 (which was already punted from Sept. 24), he knew it would get called up to the plate for a prime weekday slot soon. How to Be a Gentleman had premiered in the coveted post-Big Bang Theory Thursday berth to weak numbers and didn't seem long for this world (measured against CBS' high standards). "They told us we would not be premiering on the 8th, but instead the 15th, and I figured that meant they were going to give How to Be a Gentleman one more shot airing to see if it went up, and if not, then we would jump in at some point," Hertz tells TVGuide.com. "But yeah, I didn't believe we would air on the 15th."

CBS moves How to Be a Gentleman to Saturdays; Rules takes Thursdays slot

The call came Friday, Oct. 7 after Gentleman posted an even worse ratings erosion. The shows will swap time slots, though CBS has since pulled Gentleman from Saturdays as well.

"For all the buzz about 'the first scripted show on Saturdays in 10 years' and 'could they take Saturday nights?' it just didn't happen. And it's better that ...

Cheers & Jeers: The Big Bang Theory — The Next Vituperation

Brent Spiner

Cheers to The Big Bang Theory for finding an out-of-this-world new archenemy for Sheldon.

Just when Jim Parsons' geek god had finally forgiven Wil Wheaton for failing to show up at a Star Trek convention years ago—the actor apologized and gave Sheldon his last Wesley Crusher action figure—Next Generation castmate Brent Spiner crossed the champion grudge-holder. His offense: tearing the aforementioned toy out of its original packaging.

Matt's Guide to Thursday TV: A Classic Community and All that Jazz

Danny Pudi

There's no comedy series quite like Community, and as is often the case with such an uncompromised original, being this defiantly different comes with a price. And sadly, that price tends to be the sort of cellar-dwelling ratings that would get most shows canceled, if on any other network. Thankfully, NBC can ill afford these days to turn away any show that gets this kind of cult and media buzz, although everyone wishes it were doing better or were programmed in a time period (the old 30 Rock slot currently being wasted on Whitney, maybe?) that might increase its exposure.

Premise: Two nerdy physicists share an apartment and an unlikely friendship with their beautiful neighbor with whom one of them is infatuated. Like the universe after the big bang, the show's popularity expanded, thanks to breakout star Jim Parsons, along with the chemistry among the friends and the developing romance between Leonard and Penny. The addition of Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik in later seasons also enhanced the stories and relationships of the leads.
