THE BUZZ

…TWO AND A HALF MEN:

– It was the much anticipated debut of this CBS sitcom, and one that saw the end of Charlie Harper, and the beginning of Walden Schmidt. We knew that Charlie Sheen’s character was going to be killed off, so, just how did they do it? He stepped out of the subway in Paris, and right onto an oncoming train…and that ended that. No comebacks for Charlie Sheen. I am sure that Chuck Lorre was smiling over and over at the fact that he got to pick how to end the headache known as Charlie Sheen.

…CHARLIE ROASTED:

– While Charlie was being squashed on one network, he was being roasted on another, and he loved every minute of it. Comedy Central aired his ‘Roast’ last night, and it is sure to be a ratings hit. Here is a look at one of the one-liners of the night from ‘Private Practice’ star Kate Walsh:

…DANCING DEBUT:

– The ratings hit known as ‘Dancing With The Stars’ debuted last night. Everyone was waiting to see how ‘Chaz Bono’ would do, and from all accounts, it was a good night, as his scores fell into the middle of the pack. Chynna Phillips and actor J.R.Martinez were tied at the top after round one. Not sure who is heading home, but, the dance of the night for entertainment purposes belonged to Carson Kressley. Have a look:

…FIVE-O TWIST:

– Last night the gang was back on Hawaii Five-O for season two of this remake. McGarrett was able to prove his innocence in the death of the governor, but, not before escaping from jail, and assaulting a number of police officers along the way. That stuff usually slides in the easy lifestyle of Hawaii. The only problem left for the group is the fact that the governor’s murderer is still out there, and that paves the way for what should be the story-line this year. By the way, if you saw the last scene…then you saw the twist in this season’s plot. If you didn’t see it…watch your PVR. Looking forward to this year!

…EMMY SNUB?

– The in ‘memorium’ segment this year featured a notable snub. They was  no mention of Jeff Conaway, who had a memorable TV role on ‘Taxi’, not to mention characters in such shows as ‘Matlock’ and ‘Murder, She Wrote’. No word on why he wasn’t included…but, every award show usually has to make some ‘cuts’ in that segment, and Conaway was one that didn’t make it. Here is some ‘Bobby Wheeler’ from the legendary comedy:

…GLEE RETURNS:

– Another big show is back tonight, as season 3 of ‘Glee’ premieres. It is senior year at high school for the ‘Glee-sters’, so, the gang is back…but, who will actually leave the show at the end of this season. Jane Lynch, who plays one of the top roles on the tube these days, Sue Sylvester, says that there is a ton of time to figure out the departures:

…TUBE TONIGHT –

CBS –

– It is the season premieres of the ‘NCIS’ franchise tonight. The original w/ Mark Harmon is back, followed by the L.A. version. Both shows are golden w hen it comes to the ratings, and this season will probably remain the same. ‘Unforgettable’ w/ Poppy McGomery has it’s series premiere tonight, and even though I am looking to skip it…it might do alright being aligned w/ the ‘NCIS’ series.

NBC –

– The new season of ‘Biggest Loser’ is this evening, and features Anna Kournikova as the motivation for the contestants. The former tennis pro is know mostly for her looks, as opposed to her brawn. By the way, she was an incredible tennis player, but, never won a pro tournament. Who will bring that up? Also this evening, ‘Parenthood’ is back as Adam & Kristina continue to make plans for the new baby.

FOX-

– Already mentioned the return of ‘Glee’ tonight, followed by the series premiere of ‘New Girl’ w/ Zooey Deschanel. I mentioned that show in a ‘Fall Preview’ & will not PVR this one, just to see how it does.

ABC –

– ‘Dancing With the Stars’ starts w/ a recap from last night, and then the 1st elimination will take place. ‘Body of Proof’ is back for a 2nd season and premieres this evening. Dana Delaney is back…and gets hotter w/ age…she really does. Looking forward to this debut. If you haven’t seen it…yes, it rivals ‘CSI’ and all of it’s other shows that are scattered throughout the States…still good though.

THE CW –

– ‘90210’ is back as the gang continues to adjust to college life, and that is followed by Sarah Michelle Gellar in ‘Ringer’. I didn’t mind the debut of this one, as Sarah plays the dual roles of twins…and we do know that both of them are alive. If you saw the premiere, you know what I am talking about.

TV BIRTHDAYS & ANNIVERSARIES:

– Anne Meara (‘Fame’, ‘All In The Family’, ‘Alf’) 82.

– Debbie Morgan (‘Boston Public’) 55.

– Gary Cole (‘Entourage’) 55.

– Kristen Johnston (‘3rd Rock From the Sun’) 44.

1953: ‘The Six Shooter’ w/ Jimmy Stewart debuts on NBC.

1984: The TV classic ‘Cosby Show’ has it’s premiere (SEE CLIP)

1986: At the 38th Emmy Awards, ‘Golden Girls’ is named best comedy, while ‘Cagney & Lacey’ takes top drama awards.

FALL PREVIEW: “PAN AM” – SUN. SEP.25TH (ABC)

– It is ‘Mad Men’ meets ‘Catch Me If You Can’. It really is yet another network trying to bank on the success of the 4 time Emmy winning show from HBO. It starts with the inaugural flight of Pan-Am, and features the glitz & glamour of being a stewardess back in the day. Christina Ricci stars in this show, and it features a huge cast. Will I watch? Yep, I will check this debut out this Sunday. Here is a preview right now.

BOOB TUBE BABE OF DAY:

– It is none other than…Teri Hatcher! I have always been a fan of her from the days of ‘Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’. She is back for one more season as the bumbling, trouble making Susan on ‘Desperate Housewives’. What kind of mischief will the ladies of Wisteria Lane get into this season? We will find out Sunday when the show debuts.
