65th Primetime Emmy Awards, live awards show from 8 to 11pm on CBS

– If you think TV’s glitziest awards show won’t work without a splashy musical kickoff…you’re wrong. NPH insists that he will not be doing a song-and-dance number at the opening of the show following his raved-about Tony’s hosting gig in June. But never fear, NPH fans: the three-time Emmy winner still promises a classy and smart event packed with starry presenters like Kerry Washington and Allison Janney, witty banter, earnest celebration, and yes—even stage magic.

The Voice, season premiere at 8pm on NBC

The Voice returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s fifth season. Celebrity musicians and original coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton all return, while Carson Daly continues to serve as host. The show’s innovative format features four stages of competition: the blind auditions, the battle rounds, the knockouts and, finally, the live performance shows. During the blind auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not on looks. During the battle rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience. At the end of the battles, only the strongest members of each coach’s roster remain and proceed to the knockout rounds. In the final live performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team will compete each week against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists, and the two artists with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week. In the end, one will be named The Voice and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.

How I Met Your Mother, 1-hour season premiere at 8pm on CBS

– At long last, we met The Mother (Cristin Milioti) in the season eight finale. Ted (Josh Radnor) confided in Lily (Alyson Hannigan) that he and Robin (Cobie Smulders) had shared a moment and that’s he planning to move to Chicago after she marries Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). Lily thinks she and Marshall (Jason Segel) are moving to Rome, but little does she know Marshall accepted a judgeship in New York. This ninth and final season we’ll see how each of the gang meets The Mother. And even though the season takes place over Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend, expect lots of HIMYM’s signature time jumps.

2 Broke Girls, season premiere at 9pm on CBS

2 Broke Girls is a comedy about two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner who strike up an unlikely friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business – if only they can raise the cash. Sassy, streetwise Max Black works two jobs just to get by, one of which is waiting tables during the night shift at the retro-hip Williamsburg Diner. Sophisticated Caroline Channing is an uptown trust fund princess who’s having a run of bad luck that forces her to reluctantly give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as yet another in a long line of inept servers she must cover for, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them, but first they need to raise the start-up money. While they save their tips, they’ll stay at the restaurant, working with Oleg, an overly flirtatious Russian cook; Earl, a 75-year-old kool-kat cashier; and Han Lee, the new, eager-to-please owner of the diner. Working together, these two broke girls living in one expensive city might just find the perfect recipe for their big break.

Mom, season premiere at 9:30pm on CBS

– From hit-maker Chuck Lorre comes his next big comedy, an irreverent and outrageous take on true family love and dysfunction. Newly sober single mom Christy (Anna Faris) struggles to raise two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls. Testing her sobriety is her formerly estranged mother (Allison Janney), now back in Christy’s life and eager to share passive-aggressive insights into her daughter’s many mistakes.

Castle, season premiere at 10pm on ABC

– When viewers first met Richard Castle – a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother – he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide cop with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Last season Castle and Beckett tried to keep their new relationship a secret as they learn the man responsible for Johanna Beckett’s murder is the powerful Senator Bracken. The mystery man and his muse hit a crossroads when Beckett got an incredible job offer in DC. Wanting more out of their relationship, Castle got down on one knee to ask his partner to marry him in the season finale cliffhanger. The long wait to hear Beckett’s response will end in the Season 6 Premiere.

The Blacklist, series premiere at 10pm on NBC

– For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, The Office, Boston Legal) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, Law & Order: Los Angeles), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job. What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red’s true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? Does Liz have secrets of her own? Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all… with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal to “see the bigger picture” – whether she wants to or not.

The HostagesThe Hostages, series premiere at 10pm on CBS

– From executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the 15-episode drama series Hostages stars Emmy Award winner Toni Collette and Golden Globe Award winner Dylan McDermott in a high-octane suspense drama about Dr. Ellen Sanders, a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle. Ellen and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer, whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer, an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine, a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family’s life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian, her secretive daughter Morgan and her not-so-innocent son Jake. In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more blurred.

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, live awards show from 8 to 11pm on ABC

– Tonight’s awards for the best TV of the year will likely belong to the Men of Mad and the gentlemen (and women) of Downton. Will Don Draper & Co win their way to domination with their 17 nominations? Or will that honor go to the lords and ladies of Downton Abbey, who could head back across the Atlantic with 16? Could American Horror Story scare up some victories among its 17 nods, or will it lose out to main competitor Hatfields & McCoys? And, of course, you can never rule our awards-show bait like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Homeland. First-time host Jimmy Kimmel could take home his first Emmy too. Though no doubt he’s just honored to have been nominated…in a category that shut out Jay Leno.

Treme, season premiere at 10pm on HBO

– From the creator of The Wire, this drama featuring jazz music is set in post-Katrina New Orleans. It chronicles the struggles of a diverse group of residents as they rebuild their lives and their city. ‘Treme,’ pronounced Truh-may, takes its title from the name of one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, an historically important source of African-American music and culture. Season 2 picks up 14 months after the federal levees failed. While many of the old challenges persist, much has changed. The profiteers have arrived, though the insurance checks haven’t. Crime is on the rise, but the ability of the police department to keep pace with the criminals is questionable. Life in New Orleans is getting better, but it’s not happening fast enough to keep residents from wondering whether things would be easier, better, elsewhere. What keeps the city afloat through all of this is its culture. Mardi Gras Indian chief Albert Lambreaux (Clarke Peters) is sewing in preparation for Mardi Gras. The social aid and pleasure clubs are getting ready to hit the streets in their colorful, fast step finery. And those loveable rogues, Davis McAlary (Steve Zahn) and Antoine Batiste (Wendell Pierce) have cooked up a new set of schemes on and off the bandstand.

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?

House, season premiere at 8pm on FOX

– This Emmy award-winning 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 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 (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.

Chuck, season premiere at 8pm on NBC

– Our favorite secret agent is back in the one-hour action-comedy series. Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) returns as a regular guy who also happens to be the government’s most vital secret agent. Now that those closest to Chuck know his secret, he must try harder than ever to keep his spy life from interfering with his personal life. But this has never been more difficult – his relationship with superspy Sarah Walker is getting serious, and he’s about to take on his most personal mission yet: finding his mother. This season, Chuck’s assignments take him far from Burbank, with each mission bringing him closer to uncovering what happened to his mom, Mary Elizabeth Bartowski

Rules of Engagement, season premiere at 8:30pm on CBS

– The comedy follows the different phases of male/female relationships, as seen through the eyes of a newly engaged couple, Adam (Oliver Hudson) and Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich), a long-time married pair, Jeff (Patrick Warburton) and Audrey (Megyn Price), and a single guy on the prowl, Russell (David Spade). As they find out, the often confusing stages of a relationship can seem like being on a roller coaster. People can describe the ride to you, but to really know what it’s like you have to experience it for yourself.

Lone Star, series premiere at 9pm on FOX

– In this new drama series, Robert/Bob Allen (James Wolk) is a charismatic and brilliant schemer who has meticulously constructed two lives in two different parts of Texas. Groomed by his father from a young age to be an expert conman, he’s juggling two identities and two women in two very different worlds – all under one mountain of lies. As “Bob,” he lives in Houston and is married to Cat (Adrianne Palicki), the beautiful daughter of Clint Thatcher (Jon Voight), the patriarch of an ultra-wealthy Texas oil family. 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. Now as he tries to hold his two lives together, while fending off angry investors and the growing suspicions of those around him, Bob puts it all on the line hoping he can beat the odds, leave the schemes behind and keep two separate relationships afloat.

Two and a Half Men, season premiere at 9pm on CBS

– The hit comedy series that is completely uninterrupted by Charlie Sheen’s minor domestic violence and DUI charges is still on course for another season. It’s a comedy about the lives of two brothers, one brother’s son, and the many women who surround them.  Charlie Harper is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Mercedes in the garage and an easy way with women.  His casual Malibu lifestyle was interrupted when his tightly wound brother, Alan, and Alan’s son, Jake, came to stay with him.  Complicating matters further are Charlie and Alan’s narcissistic, emotionally toxic mother, Evelyn; Alan’s deeply neurotic ex-wife, Judith and Charlie’s domineering, unapologetically blue-collar housekeeper, Berta.  Despite the complexities of their lives and their own strained relationship, Charlie and Alan have one thing in common – they both love Jake and want what’s best for him.  As a result, they manage to create a little family unit that promises to make each of them a better man.

The Event, series premiere at 9pm on NBC

– This new high-concept drama series is an emotional conspiracy action thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), an everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his would-be fiancée Leila (Sarah Roemer), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history. Sean’s quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including newly elected U.S. President Elias Martinez (Blair Underwood); Sophia Maguire (Laura Innes), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Leila’s shadowy father (Scott Patterson). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.

Mike & Molly, series premiere at 9:30pm on CBS

– This new comedy is about a working class Chicago couple who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.  Officer Mike Biggs is a good-hearted cop who sincerely wants to lose weight. Mike’s partner, Officer Carl McMillan, is a thin, fast-talking wise-guy who, despite his teasing, encourages Mike on his road to slimness and romance.  While speaking at an O.A. meeting, Mike meets Molly Flynn, an instantly likeable fourth-grade teacher with a good sense of humor about her curves.  For Molly, focusing on smart choices isn’t easy while living with her sexy older sister, Victoria, and their mother, Joyce, both of whom flaunt their effortless figures while indulging their healthy appetites right in front of her. Mike and Molly found each other in the most unexpected of places.  Now, they’re about to find out where their quest for companionship will take them.

Castle, season premiere at 10pm on ABC

– The hit crime dramedy starring crime-fighting partners NYPD detective Beckett (Stana Katic) and successful mystery writer Castle (Nathan Fillion) aka the charming thorn in Beckett’s side is back for a season that sees them in relationships with the wrong people, as in not with each other. This season they also face a more worthy criminal foe, a serial killer nicknamed “The Triple Killer” that will be the bane of their existence on and off all season. But single dad Castle may find his biggest foe at home when his teenage daughter Alexis gets her first serious boyfriend. The premiere sneak peek leaves many questions to be answered when Beckett and her team burst into an apartment on a murderer’s trail to find Castle standing over a dead woman’s body holding a gun forcing Beckett to arrest Castle as he asserts his innocence. We have another kick-ass season to look forward to of crime-fighting, sexual tension, and quick wit to keep us coming back for more.

Hawaii Five-0, series premiere at 10pm on CBS

– Hawaii Five-0 2010 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands’ sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett (the abtastic Alex O’Loughlin), a decorated Naval officer-turned-cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stays after Hawaii’s Governor persuades him to head up the new team: his rules, her backing, no red tape and full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest “game” in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny “Danno” Williams (Scott Caan), a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop – a working man in paradise who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline – but whose committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter from a failed marriage; and Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu Police Detective, and former protégé of McGarrett’s father, wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol. Chin’s cousin, Kono (Battlestar Gallactica’s Grace Park), is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department’s elite. McGarrett works on repairing his relationship with his estranged sister Mary Ann and vows to bring closure to their father’s case.

Chase, series premiere at 10pm on NBC

– From super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer and exec producer Jennifer Johnson (Cold Case and Lost), this lightning-fast drama drops viewers smack into the middle of a game of cat-and-mouse as a team of U.S. Marshals hunts down America’s most dangerous fugitives. Kelli Giddish (Past Life) stars as U.S. Marshal Annie Frost, a cowboy boot-wearing deputy whose sharp mind and unique Texas upbringing help her track down violent criminals on the run. Starring as the members of Frost’s elite team are Cole Hauser as Jimmy Godfrey, an East Texas kid who never grew up and is a true American cowboy; Prison Break’s gorgeous Amaury Nolasco who plays Marco Martinez, a good intelligence guy who loves to talk; and Rose Rollins (The L Word), who portrays Daisy Ogbaa, a weapons/tactical specialist and a woman of few words. Rounding out the cast is Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives), who stars as Luke Watson, the fresh-faced newcomer whose Washington, D.C. upbringing did little to prepare him for the Lone Star State.
