* Note #1 – all times are eastern/central
**Note #2- as I feel that reality TV is neither reality nor TV, anything so classified has been left off the list.

Thursday, Sept. 28:

Ugly Betty –  From ABC’s “Pilot” description: In the superficial world of high fashion, image is everything. Styles come and go, and the only constants are the superthin beauties who wear them. How can an ordinary girl – a slightly plump plain-Jane from Queens – possibly fit in? How exciting, a series on real life people and the best part is America Ferrera (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Real Women Have Curves) plays Betty, this should be good. (8 pm ABC)
Smallville – In the beginning there was Clark Kent and now he’s back to save the world and deal with the trauma of teenage life and being a super hero. [8 pm CW]
Supernatural – Sam and Dean are back investigating the paranormal and supernatural events. Really, this show is kind of weird, but cool and interesting. Supernatural is a young adult ghost hunt that keeps you on your toes. [9 pm CW]

Saturday, Sept. 30:

Saturday Night Live – What description does SNL need? I miss the good old days when it was exciting, funny and on the edge; now it’s bland, boring and not as original. [11:30 pm SNL]

Sunday, Oct. 1:

Everybody Hate’s Chris – Chris Rock narrates a in your face show about a teen growing up in Brooklyn, NY during the early 80’s. Season 3 on it’s way. [7 pm CW]
All of Us – Wow, this show started in 2003, who knew? From CW’s site: Returning for a fourth season, ALL OF US, the series inspired by the domestic adventures of entertainment superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, reflects a new generation’s enlightened attitude toward juggling ex-spouses, dating and professional lives with humor, sensitivity and heart. [7:30 pm CW]
Girlfriends – Season 7 continues the relationship of 4 girlfriends and life. They experience the ups and downs of love, loss and life in general in a series that at times is both funny and sorrowful.[8 pm CW]
The Game –  [8:30 pm CW]

Tuesday, Oct. 3:

Friday Night Lights – The big screen is coming near you in a “mini-me” fashion. This new TV series is based on the film Friday Night Lights. [8 pm NBC]
Veronica Mars –  Veronica is a high school student by day and a private eye by night, she goes through trials and tribulations in this addictive TV show and it’s just as powerful and dramatic as the first few seasons.[9 pm CW]

Wednesday, Oct. 4:

Lost – It’s about time, I just finished up the last of Season 2 and I’m totally itching for Season 3 to start. What a cliff hanger folks, Jack, Kate and Sawyer kneeling on a dock, Michael boating away and Charlie and Claire kiss…WTF. Got to see what happens next. The great thing about Lost is, it keeps you wanting more. [9 pm ABC]
The Nine –  From ABC’s Website: “Pilot”
Nine strangers end up in a Los Angeles bank on a fateful morning, as two men lock the doors, pull their guns and announce a bank robbery that will “only take five minutes.” These nine survivors are now banded together as an unlikely family, as they re-enter their lives and grapple with how this seminal event has changed them forever… [10 pm ABC]
Freak Show – From comedy central’s website: “Freak Show” follows the misadventures of the Freak Squad, a band of carnival oddities secretly employed by the Pentagon to execute low-priority missions. Need someone to read the meter at the embassy in a war-torn country? Freak Squad, assemble! [10:30 pm Comedy Central]
