Bones on Fox at 8:00pm ET. I forgot to mention this last Monday, but I know there’s a few die-hards sticking it out. Vaya con Dios.
How I Met Your Mother on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere, and a double-header tonight. This is the last season, so the meeting of the mother will actually happen. Thank god.
Monday Night Football: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos on ESPN at 8:40pm ET.
Mom on CBS at 9:30pm ET. Series premiere. Good news: stars Anna Farris and Allison Janney! Discouraging news: created by Chuck Lorre. Tread warily.
Hostages on CBS at 10:01pm ET. For all your Dylan McDermott/Toni Colette related needs. This is one of those shows where it seems like a great premise for a mini-series but I have no idea how they’re going to make it work as a series. But then again, I thought the same thing about American Horror Story and they showed me how wrong I could be.
Genevieve Burgess is happy with the level of talent on television programs these days and is patiently awaiting the day when more of the writing catches up to the actors.
