The Goldbergs, series premiere at 9pm on ABC

– Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the ‘80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam (Sean Giambrone) these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other, just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic “smother;” an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff, hot-tempered and trying to parent without screaming. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, an overly emotional teen with severe middle child syndrome. Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who’s crushing on an older woman. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling Adam in the ways of love. When Pops buys a new sports car and offers his Caddy to middle child Barry, it’s enough to drive this already high-strung family to the brink of chaos.

Trophy Wife

Trophy Wife, series premiere at 9:30pm on ABC

– They say the third time’s the charm, and reformed party girl Kate (Malin Akerman) is hoping that’s true when she becomes the third wife of a slightly older man, Pete (Bradley Whitford). They fell into each others’ arms (literally) at a karaoke bar, and flash forward a year later, Kate finds herself with an instafamily complete with three stepchildren and two ex-wives. But Kate is determined to make this work and become a part of the family no matter what. Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) is ex-wife number one, an intense and overachieving former Olympic athlete and the mother of twin teenagers Hillary (Bailee Madison) and Warren (Ryan Scott Lee). Diane is quick to convey her withering disapproval of Kate’s barely tapped maternal instincts. Daughter Hillary is not a fan of her new step-mom either, despite Kate’s attempts to win her trust. And son Warren may have an erotic fixation on his dad’s beautiful, young spouse. Ex-wife number two, Jackie (Michaela Watkins), is mother to adopted son Bert (Albert Tsai), and can pull Pete’s strings with her special blend of neurotic, new-ageyness. Juggling all this baggage is uncharted territory for Kate, who finds support in the most unusual place – with her best friend, Meg (Natalie Morales), a party-hearty singleton and the only woman Kate knows who has less experience with kids than she has.

Lucky 7, series premiere at 10pm on ABC

– ABC’s new drama series follows a group of seven gas station employees in Queens, New York whose lives are transformed by an unexpected lottery win.

Matt Korzak (Matt Long) could get his very pregnant girlfriend, Mary Lavecchia (Christine Evangelista), and their other child out of his mother’s house with some desperately needed cash. Matt’s brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt and pursue the huge crush he has on co-worker Samira Lashari (Summer Bishil). Samira, a second-generation Pakistani immigrant and a talented musician, could finally afford to go to her dream school, Juilliard. Denise Dibinksy (Lorraine Bruce), the tender-hearted Gold Star cashier, is struggling to lose weight and regain her former glory, but the winnings could provide an opportunity for her to rebuild her crumbling marriage. Leanne Maxwell (Anastasia Phillips), a young single mother, will try to keep her past hidden despite the spotlight the lottery win puts on her. Bob Harris (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store’s manager and quite possibly the nicest man in the world, wants to buy the Gold Star and make it into the perfect workplace he always imagined. And cheerful and charming Antonio Clemente (Luis Antonio Ramos) will discover ways to capitalize on the group’s win in order to give his wife, Bianca (Alex Castillo), and their three kids a whole new life. Now that their circumstances have changed, the Lucky 7 will need to overcome obstacles, reach down deep to examine their values and find out who they really are if they’re to enjoy their newfound wealth.

Person of Interest, season premiere at 10pm on CBS

The good news: Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) are still getting numbers from the Machine. The bad news: The device is also in touch with Amy Acker’s unhinged hacker Root, who’s been bumped up to series regular for season 3. At least the good guys have a newly minted regular on their side: the fearless Shaw (Sarah Shahi), an ex-assassin who prefers to kill first and ask questions later. Expect a Fleet Week-set premiere that delves into Reese’s backstory, and plenty more surveillance-based shenanigans—though as Emerson points out, recent revelations about the NSA make POI feel as though it’s no longer a syfy show.

Upstairs Downstairs, season premiere at 9pm on PBS

– During the quick three-episode debut season last year, Sir Hallam Holland (Ed Stoppard),  and his wife, Lady Agnes, moved into an abandoned house. It was 1936, a tumultuous time in Britain, and within the walls of 165 Eaton Place, characters from an orphanage, a damp Welsh castle, the heart of the British Raj and elsewhere together faced a changing world, not just upstairs and downstairs, but side by side. The period drama’s second season picks back up in 1938 and all is not well. The house witnesses a murder, Hitler is playing hardball with our diplomatic hero Sir Holland, and worst of all, newly hired maid Beryl Ballard (Laura Haddock) wants to wear her own stockings. The refurbished series isn’t as sharp as the 70s originals and the Hollands aren’t as juicy as Downton’s Granthams but it’s still a whole lot of fun to look at.

Chicago Fire, series premiere at 10pm on NBC

For the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way and whose actions make the difference between life and death. The pressure to perform on such a high level has a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes putting team members from the Truck and the specially trained Rescue Squad at odds with each other. Despite any differences, this is an extended family, and when it’s “go time,” everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other. When a tragedy claims one of their own, there’s plenty of guilt and blame to go around. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer, House), in charge of the Truck, tries to carry on, but butts heads with the brash Lt.

Beauty and the Beast, series premiere at 9pm on The CW

– Catherine “Cat” Chandler (Kristin Kreuk, Smallville, Chuck) is a smart, no-nonsense homicide detective, who is haunted by her own tragic past. When she was a teenager, Cat witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Cat would have been killed too, but someone – or something – saved her. No one has ever believed her, but she knows it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins…though it was strange and terrifying, it was human. Years have passed, and although she thinks about her mother every day, Cat is now strong and confident, a capable police detective working with her equally talented partner, Tess Vargas (Nina Lisandrello, Nurse Jackie). While investigating a new case, Cat and Tess discover fingerprints that lead to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan, Terra Nova), who was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Digging deeper, Cat learns that Vincent is actually still alive. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years. With the help of his childhood friend J.T. Forbes, Vincent has been able to guard his terrible secret – when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Cat is stunned when Vincent admits he was the “animal” who saved her the night of her mother’s murder. Cat agrees to protect Vincent’s identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother’s murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Cat and Vincent, who understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them. As she slowly comes to terms with Vincent’s monstrous alter-ego, Cat senses she can trust him in ways she hasn’t been able to trust any man before and, despite the obstacles between them, she realizes that she’s safer with him than anywhere else.
