Keeping you up to date on what’s hitting your idiot box, we continue with another week of season, and series, premieres.  This week includes an American version of a Japanese game show, the return of House and Lincoln Heights, people trying to remember the lyrics, and another season from the not ready for prime-time players.  Check out the full list inside.

Hole in the Wall This American version of the Japanese game show has contestants playing a human-sized version of Tetris and attempting to push themselves through the hole in the wall (get it?).  Here’s an example.  The show airs Thursday nights at 8:00/7:00 on FOX.

Don’t Forget the Lyrics Wayne Brady returns as host for this game show where contestants try to remember lyrics from popular songs.  The show airs Friday nights at 9:00/8:00 on FOX.  Check out the official site.

Saturday Night Live The not ready for prime-time players return for their 34th season Saturday nights at 11:30/10:30 on NBC.  Check out the official site.

House Last season was all about House (Hugh Laurie) choosing his new team.  So what’s the good Doctor got for us this year?  Aside from the fall-out of the death of Wilson’s girlfriend (Anne Dudek).  House returns on Tuesday nights at 8:00/7:00 on NBC.  Check out the official site.

Lincoln Heights The Internet informs me that this show has been on televsion for two years.  Who knew?  It returns Tuesday nights at 8:00/7:00 on ABC Family.  Check out the official site.
