<i>Modern Family</i>: Five Surprising Things about the Season 4 Premiere

After sweeping the Emmys yet again, Modern Family is back for a fourth season. Are you excited? I'm on the fence -- I generally like to root for underdogs, and with the relentless praise the show gets, it's much easier for me to see all of the flaws in this show. On the other hand, last night's premiere made me laugh a handful of times, and by the end totally had me crying... which isn't saying much, given that I'm a huge crybaby, but still.

<i>Love in the Wild</i>: The Best Lines of the Season 2 Premiere

If you're part of the small population of people that thought Survivor needed more romance and that The Bachelor needed more snake pits, then Love in the Wild is the show for you. Though Season 2 of the reality dating/adventure show has attempted to bump up the dramatics from the previous season, kicking out Darren McMullen in favor of Jenny McCarthy, the show hasn't lost its pretty-but-totally-desperate contestants. We can't wait to see the ridiculous and semi-dangerous scenarios they will be forced into this upcoming season, all in the name of TV love. Take a look at some of the words of wisdom from the contestants on Week 1 of the new season.

Eastbound & Down: The Premiere’s Most Offensive Lines

<i>Eastbound & Down</i>: The Premiere’s Most Offensive Lines

After his South of the Border sojourn, Kenny Effin' Powers is back stateside in Season 3 of HBO's scabrous comedy Eastbound & Down. Danny McBride's foul-mouthed, not-so-vaguely racist and all-around awful alter ego is currently calling Myrtle Beach, South Carolina home and pitching for the minor league team, the Mermen. He's apparently got some of his old heat back as well, and is so high on his newfound success that he's already prewritten the third installment of his so-called Life Saga, describing how he got back to the Majors... even though he hasn't actually gotten back to the Majors yet.

<i>Community</i>: Can the Premiere’s Changes Help the Season’s Ratings?

In our pre-Season 3 interview with Dan Harmon, Community's creator wasn't shy about admitting that this is the show's make-or-break year. If it holds its own or, better still, grabs more eyeballs, it'll likely stay on at least as long as it takes Jeff, Annie and the rest of Greendale's most self-centered study group to graduate. If those ratings keep slipping, though, we may never get to see them accept their diplomas. The musical number that opened last night's season premiere openly addressed Harmon's desire to reach a bigger audience, with such pointed lyrics as "We're going to seem like a mainstream dream" and "We're going to have more fun and be less weird/Than the first two years combined." So how exactly is Greendale different this season? Here are some of the biggest developments we spotted in the premiere and whether we think they'll have an impact on the ratings:

<I>The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills</I>: The Season Premiere’s Best & Worst Moments

We expected there to be some uncomfortable moments in the Season 2 premiere of The Real Housewives Beverly Hills, given the recent suicide of Taylor's husband Russell Armstrong, and there were. But somewhat surprisingly, some of them had absolutely nothing to do with Armstrong and Taylor's relationship. Good for the other insanely rich ladies for really stepping it up this season and helping to spread the wealth of uncomfortableness and ridiculousness all around.

Lingering Questions from the Rock of Love Bus Premiere

Lingering Questions from the <I>Rock of Love Bus</I> Premiere

So I just got a chance to watch the season premiere of Rock of Love: If this Bus Is a Rockin' Don't Come a Knockin' and I'm flabbergasted. I would have watched last night, but I was too busy writing about the quality program Superstars of Dance. Sigh. At least RoL:Bus was entertaining... if terrifying. Potes did a fabulous job of recapping this skanktastic episode, but there were some things I had to see with my very own eyes to believe, and now I need a long shower. But the whole thing left me with some burning questions (I hope I didn't contract something while watching it!) that I've listed below.

Another Lost Premiere Clip: Ben and Jack, Living in Sin

Another <I>Lost</I> Premiere Clip: Ben and Jack, Living in Sin ABC has generously released another couple minutes from Lost's season premiere online today, probably to keep us all from getting stabby between now and January 21. I'm loving these sneak rollouts, by the way. Obviously, the wait for Lost to start has been excruuuuciating for everybody, so it's nice to at least have some tidbits between now and the premiere to keep us sane. It's really a public service they're doing.

You! Yes You! Can Watch the 30 Rock Premiere Right Now!

You! Yes You! Can Watch the <I>30 Rock</I> Premiere Right Now! The good people at Hulu (they are saints, I tell you!) have posted next week's 30 Rock season premiere oh so many days early, and I've gone ahead and posted it after the jump. I'm only about halfway through it as I'm typing this, but as my officemate Angel can attest, I've been laughing at an annoyingly loud and frequent rate so far, which is a good sign when watching a sitcom. Still not ready to give a verdict, obviously, but who cares what I think? Click, watch, and give us your review after the jump.

SNL Season Premiere: Mixed Bag

<I>SNL</I> Season Premiere: Mixed Bag

Tina Fey listened to me and despite his adorkable nature and lack of acting skills, Michael Phelps fared about as well as I expected (OK, like I'd be able to bring myself to say anything bad about him, even though he didn't drop by my office to say a personal hello last week.) But the premiere was very much hit or miss... to say the least. Some of it was downright unwatchable.

The Goldbergs: The Wonder Years, ’80s Edition

<i>The Goldbergs</i>: The Wonder Years, ’80s Edition

Twenty-five years ago, ABC premiered The Wonder Years, a lovingly nostalgic look back at a young boy's coming of age in the late '60s. To mark that award-winning, fondly-remembered show's anniversary, the network has decided to dress The Wonder Years up in '80s duds and re-brand it as, The Goldbergs, which aired its pilot episode last night.
