The fall season now feels official-like, with a whopping 41 shows premiering this week. Monday, Thursday and Sunday are the biggest days and although there are a few shows over the course of the week I’ll be tuning in for, it’s really all about next Sunday:”The Amazing Race,” “Dexter,” “Californication” and “The Unit,” among others. Hell. Yes. And a friendly reminder about Sunday night — thanks to glorious, glorious football, your CBS and Fox shows may be off by up to an hour, so pad your DVRs accordingly.
