All eyes are on Buffy the Vampire Slayer tonight, as the acclaimed dramedy kicks off its sixth season on a new network and with a renewed energy. Of course, with big hype comes even bigger expectations: Will the show be able to maintain its high creative standards especially coming off of what many believe was its strongest year yet? How will Buffy fare sans her bloodsucking beau Angel, who was stranded on the WB? When the ratings come in, will UPN or the WB have the last laugh? All of these questions will be answered soon enough (TV Guide critic Matt Roush tackles the creative issue in Today's TV). In the meantime, Buffy's proud papa, Joss Whedon, addresses more pressing concerns like will UPN allow Tara and Willow to finally get it on!
