I guess tomorrow is technically the big, official fall season kickoff, but one network has season and series premieres tonight.
NBC – football – Pittsburgh @ Carolina, hopefully a big Carolina win and another bad game for Rottenburger
CBS – 60 Minutes at 7:30, series premiere of Madame Secretary at 8:30(synopsis below), season premiere of The Good Wife at 9:30 and an encore of Madame Secretary at 10:30. These times are approximate as there will likely be football overrun.
ABC. – repeats
FOX – repeats
Cable – Boardwalk Empire on HBO, Witches of East End on Lifetime, Masters of Sex on Showtime, Manhattan on WGN
Madam Secretary – Tea Leoni as a former CIA agent who is unexpectedly asked to be Secretary of State. Also stars Tim Daly as her husband, Bebe Neuwirth as her Chief of Staff and Keith Carradine as the president. One of the best reviewed new shows of the season. I’m a fan of Leoni, so I will give it a try.
What to watch – watch the football game unless it is a blowout, though it is fun to watch the Steelers lose big. Record Madam Secretary and watch after you get bored with football. I’ve heard Good Wife is good, but I’ve never watched an episode.
