She is already skating on thin ice within the CIA after a disastrous attempt to get information from a condemned Iraqi source sparks a diplomatic crisis. But Carrie was able to get a small piece of unsettling secret intelligence from her source before he died, and she is convinced it has alarming significance to the return of MIA Sgt. Brody. She believes that Brody has been turned and is now working for Al Qaeda. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse with nothing short of American national security at stake. The crucial question is, is Carrie’s conviction based on fact or is it the product of a delusional obsession?

House, season premiere at 9pm on FOX

– This hit series is an innovative take on the medical drama in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), devoid of bedside manner and dealing with his own constant physical pain, uses a cane that punctuates his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. His behavior often borders on antisocial, but House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives. In the season six finale, House, driven by the loss of a patient he treated at an accident site and confronted with the unexpected news that Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) was now engaged, spiraled into despair and considered treating his mental and emotional anguish with Vicodin, potentially prompting the cycle of his dependency and addiction all over again. But in a surprising turn, Cuddy revealed that she called off her engagement and admitted to House she loves him, despite wishing she didn’t. Also, Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) submitted her leave of absence from the hospital, prompting questions about the status of her health.

The League, season premiere at 10:30pm on FX

– To be a fan of The League, you don’t need to know much about fantasy football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. FX’s ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who care deeply about one another – so deeply that they use every opportunity to make each other’s lives miserable. The League features an ensemble cast of rising actors/comedians. Mark Duplass (Humpday) plays “Pete,” the perennial league champ who is struggling to become an adult. Stephen Rannazzisi (Paul Blart: Mall Cop) is “Kevin,” a happily married father and commissioner of the league. Nick Kroll (Get Him to the Greek) plays “Ruxin,” who believes he is the smartest of the group but can’t figure out how exactly the other guys are screwing him over. “Andre,” played by Paul Scheer (Human Giant), has continued to be the punching bag of the group since their high school days – a fact that hasn’t changed despite the fact he is now a successful plastic surgeon. Jon Lajoie is “Taco,” Kevin’s little brother, a part-time musician and full-time stoner with little interest in fantasy other than hanging with his buddies (whom he struggles to remember). Katie Aselton (The Freebie) plays “Jenny,” Kevin’s wife and his better half – especially when it comes to Fantasy Football.

Top Secret Recipe, series premiere at 9pm on CMT

– Each week, our food hacker host, Todd Wilbur, investigates an iconic American recipe and attempts to re-create it better than the original, proving it with a blind taste test. In each one-hour episode, Wilbur is faced with a new challenge — re-create the secret recipe of an iconic American brand in three days, whether it’s Colonel Sanders’ highly regarded KFC chicken blend or those famous Cinnabon rolls. Armed only with his keen sense of taste, investigative skills and a mobile food lab, Wilbur heads to that brand’s corporate headquarters to meet with the CEO and begin his process of using every means possible to crack the recipe. Over the next three days, Wilbur employs a number of creative gumshoe efforts to zero in on the recipe. He rolls up his sleeves and goes “CSI” by testing samples in his undercover mobile food lab, disguising himself for retail store visits, spying on preparation techniques, pumping employees for information on crucial ingredients and talking his way into high security areas. Once the clock stops, brand executives and fans sit down to dine on both creations in a blind taste test. Can Wilbur fool the judges and successfully pull off a counterfeit dish? Or will the classic recipe reign supreme? After decades of silence, the techniques and ingredients of some of our favorite meals will finally be revealed.

Rules of Engagement, season premiere at 8pm on CBS

– The smart comedy series entering its sixth season has finally overcome being a midseason replacement for a failing comedy on the Monday night comedy block, but its regular place on the fall schedule is now a dreadful Saturday night slot, ouch. This comedy is about the different phases of male/female relationships, as seen through the eyes of an engaged couple, Adam and Jennifer; a long-time married pair, Jeff and Audrey; a single guy on the prowl, Russell (David Spade); and his office assistant, Timmy. As they find out, the often confusing stages of a relationship can seem like being on a roller coaster: people can describe them to you, but to really know what it’s like, you have to take a ride for yourself.

Dancing With the Stars, season premiere at 8pm on ABC

– Three opinionated judges, twelve professional dancers, twelve celebrities, tons of glitter and spray tans, and Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke. No, we’ll never be able to dance like Chelsie Hightower, Maksim Chmerkovskiy or Cheryl Burke, and that’s exactly why we watch. We can totally relate to the stars competing on the show and it’s pretty cool to know they’re just like us. These actors, athletes, musicians, reality stars, and where-are-they-now personalities start out as lumbering Frankensteins with two left feet, and they slowly transform (we hope) into graceful twinkle-toed Baryshnikovs. The contestants this season have huge graceful dancing shoes to fill after Nicole Scherzinger and Evan Lysacek’s brilliant runs during the epic 10th season. This year’s cast, save “The Situation” and Bristol Palin, leaves much to be desired in terms of colorful characters who can deliver some smooth moves, drama, and comedic relief. But everyone knows that the so-called “stars” are only part of the entertainment. What would DWTS be without Maks’ outbursts at his partner and criticism of the judges, Derek’s hyper-sexual pelvic gyrations (mambo head bobbing in the crotch anyone?), and Edyta’s uber-skimpy costumes? This season veteran pro Edyta Sliwinska, who has yet to win despite being on all 10 seasons, left to study Media Communications at UCLA. Corky Ballas returns to pair with Brady mom Florence Henderson after his successful run with Cloris Leachman in season 7.

Here’s this season’s star-pro pairings:

Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower
Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Margaret Cho and Louis van Amstel
Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke
Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson
Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas
Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff
Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya

And don’t forget to watch the results show on Tuesday at 8pm this week, which moves to its regular slot at 9pm next week.

How I Met Your Mother, season premiere at 8pm on CBS

– This season the showrunners are taking the show back to it’s original sentiment, with much more depth in the show’s relationships and bringing back the big mystery as to who the mother is. We’ll still have the same great laughs from The Goat and Slapsgiving, but we’ll also move the storyline along to come closer to answering the big question as well as other smaller ones, like will soul mates Barney and Robin get back together? This season Ted gets a chance to design the Goliath National Bank building, Marshall and Lily start trying to have a baby, Robin engages in a rivalry with her new coanchor (Laura Bell Bundy), and Barney finally acknowledges that Bob Barker isn’t his father and sets out to find the real one. The premiere features a game-changing wedding, the bride and groom of whom are yet another mystery. This season, Rachel Bilson’s character Cindy bumps into Ted at McClaren’s and Ted is anxious to meet her intriguing roommate, which all clues seem to indicate is the titular mother. Also, producers have cast House’s Jennifer Morrison as a serious love interest for Ted with a long-term arc this season. She’ll be playing Zooey, an activist trying to stop the destruction of a building that will be replaced by one of Ted’s designs. Could one of these women finally be the mother?

But in a surprising turn, Cuddy revealed that she called off her engagement and (finally) admitted to House she loves him, despite wishing she didn’t. Also, Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) submitted her leave of absence from the hospital, prompting questions about the status of her health. As Season Seven begins, House and Cuddy attempt to make a real relationship work and face the question as to whether their new relationship will affect their ability to diagnose patients.

More than 400 miles away in the suburban west Texas town of Midland, he’s “Robert,” living a second life with his sweet, naive girlfriend, Lindsay Holloway (Eloise Mumford). There he plays the perfect boyfriend while secretly bilking local investors of their savings. While in Houston, he’s a devoted husband, charming Cat and her family to cement his position in the rich family business he aims to clean out. With the cons closing in on him, Bob begins to fear his secret lives may unravel as he becomes divided by his love for two women; his loyalty to his father and mentor, John (David Keith); and his respect for his father-in-law, Clint.
