Sean’s take: If K-Ville lasts, sure. 24 season 7 damn well better be than season 6. Really doesn’t matter though, they already renewed for season 8.

8:00 PM BACK TO YOU
8:30 PM THE RETURN OF JEZEBEL JAMES (working title) – Can two estranged sisters, polar opposites, live together when one agrees to carry the otherâ€™s baby? SARAH THOMKINS (Parker Posey, â€œFor Your Consideration,â€ â€œBest in Showâ€) is a bright, optimistic, determined woman who seems to have it all â€“ a great job as a childrenâ€™s book editor, an eager-to-please assistant, BUDDY (Michael Arden), who helps keep her life together, and a no-strings-attached personal relationship with successful businessman MARCUS SONTI (Scott Cohen, â€œKissing Jessica Steinâ€). Nevertheless, as her father, RONALD (Ron McLarty, â€œLaw & Orderâ€), is constantly pointing out, something is missing from Sarahâ€™s life. Her hard work may garner accolades, but when she goes home at night, she is very much alone. All too aware that she isnâ€™t getting any younger, Sarah decides to have a baby on her own and gets the shock of her life when the doctor tells her she canâ€™t get pregnant. Having no concept of the term â€œcanâ€™t,â€ Sarah wills herself to execute a plan. With nowhere else to turn, Sarah sets up a meeting with her quirky younger sister, COCO (Lauren Ambrose, â€œSix Feet Underâ€), and proposes a plan for Coco to carry her baby. They havenâ€™t seen each other in a while, and Coco refuses to go along with such a huge favor. But something happens when Sarah mentions that sheâ€™s turned Cocoâ€™s imaginary childhood friend, Jezebel James, into a childrenâ€™s book. Even though she doesnâ€™t say so out loud, Coco is clearly touched, and, realizing that her current living situation â€“ sharing a couch with her friendâ€™s sick dog â€“ isnâ€™t working out, Coco decides that this just might be worth a try.

9:30 PM â€™TIL DEATH
Sean’s take: As much as I loved Gilmore Girls, Jezebel James sounds very “one joke” to me. What happens after the baby is born? *snore*
8:00 PM ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER?
9:00 PM CANTERBURYâ€™S LAW – From executive producers Denis Leary and Jim Serpico (â€œRescue Me,â€ â€œThe Jobâ€) and writer Dave Erickson (â€œMurder in Greenwichâ€) comes CANTERBURYâ€™S LAW, a courtroom drama about a rebellious female defense attorney whoâ€™s willing to bend the law in order to protect the wrongfully accused. ELIZABETH CANTERBURY (Julianna Margulies, â€œERâ€) is a force of nature. An attorney on the rise, she puts her career on the line to take on risky and unpopular cases, even when they take a toll on her personal life. Elizabeth and her law professor husband MATTHEW CANTERBURY (Linus Roache, â€œBatman Begins,â€ â€œThe Chronicles of Riddickâ€), haunted by the disappearance of their young son, have settled in Providence, Rhode Island, in an attempt to distance themselves from the tragedy and put their relationship back together. But those goals become elusive whenever Elizabethâ€™s work provides a stark reminder of the justice absent in their own lives. At the office, Canterbury has surrounded herself with a brilliant but motley crew of attorneys. RUSSELL CROSS (Ben Shenkman, â€œPi,â€ â€œAngels in Americaâ€) was forced out of the Providence District Attorneyâ€™s Office when he went toe-to-toe with his morally bankrupt boss, D.A. Zach Williams. His reputation tarnished, Russell turned to Canterbury, the only attorney willing to take him in. Now Russell provides a much-needed voice of reason for Canterbury even when she doesnâ€™t want to hear it, his position of influence well-earned by their years of friendship. CHESTER FIELDS (Jocko Sims, â€œDreamgirls,â€ â€œCSI: Crime Scene Investigationâ€) and MOLLY McCONNELL (Trieste Dunn, â€œUnited 93â€) are the associates rounding out Canterburyâ€™s legal crew. Chester is a blue-blooded congressmanâ€™s son who is embarrassed by his privileged upbringing and has turned his back on politics. Molly, in contrast, is headstrong, passionate and quick to take sides â€“ even if she finds herself in the opposite corner from Canterbury.
Sean’s take: Another strong female lawyer show… great. Oh, and she has a “motley crew” of lawyer’s around her. Wonderful. *snore*

9:00 PM THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES – Executive producers Josh Friedman (â€œWar of the Worldsâ€), David Nutter (â€œSupernatural,â€ â€œSmallvilleâ€) and C-2 Pictures (â€œTerminator 3: Rise of the Machinesâ€) bring to television an intense new drama based on the celebrated heroine of the â€œTerminatorâ€ movies: Sarah Connor. At the end of â€œTerminator 2: Judgment Day,â€ Sarah vanquished the liquid metal Terminator sent from the future to kill her teenage son, John. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future, and the present, could attack at any moment. THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES reveals what happens when SARAH (Lena Headey, â€œThe Brothers Grimm,â€ â€œ300â€) stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life, and perhaps the world. Her son, 15-year-old JOHN CONNOR (Thomas Dekker, â€œHeroesâ€), knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that heâ€™s told is his destiny. John finds himself inextricably drawn to CAMERON (Summer Glau, â€œSerenity,â€ â€œThe Unitâ€), an enigmatic and otherworldly student at his high school, who soon proves to be much more than his confidante â€“ she assumes the role of Sarah and Johnâ€™s fearless protector. On their trail are not only threats from the future, but an intelligent and tough FBI agent, JAMES ELLISON (Richard T. Jones, â€œJudging Amyâ€), who soon becomes a powerful ally. Directed by David Nutter and produced by Warner Bros. Television and C-2 Pictures, THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES represents an exciting reinvention of the â€œTerminatorâ€ franchise, in which the strong and intrepid Sarah discovers that protecting her son and stopping the rise of the machines is more difficult than she had ever imagined.
Sean’s take: Enjoy the four episodes of Sarah Conner that will be aired!
