On TV this week
SERIES PREMIERE Roommates, 9 p.m., ABC Family College pals live together after graduation, trying to make a go of it as hip urban youth in today's world. Imagine Friends, if those guys had known people who weren't white.
24, 9 p.m., Fox At what point would your average intelligence agent get to say, okay, enough, it's time for a shift change? Oh, and guess what? More bad news for President Taylor's administration.
SERIES PREMIERE Sophie, 9:30 p.m., ABC Family This is supposed to be a sitcom, but in the very first episode the main character's boyfriend runs off with her best friend and steals most of the clients from her talent agency. We're not getting the joke.
The Biggest Loser, 9 p.m., NBC A two-hour episode with NASCAR's Clint Bowyer, which, ironically, means more fans of the show sitting in front of the TV longer shoveling Doritos into their faces.
90210, 9 p.m., CW Matt Lanter from Heroes drops by for an appearance, just so he can get a firsthand account of how bad a TV series can be.
Without a Trace, 10 p.m., CBS A psychologist whose brother is a serial rapist goes missing, and the team thinks the imprisoned sibling may be involved. In the disappearance, we mean.
America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW Benny Ninja teaches the girls to pose like immigrants. There will be a lot of oppression and xenophobia, then?
Criminal Minds, 9 p.m., CBS An arsonist keeps burning down community meeting places in a small town. After the park's gazebo and the local bar, what's left?
Life, 9 p.m., NBC When a coroner is murdered, who makes the official call?
SERIES PREMIERE In the Motherhood, 8 p.m., ABC A sitcom about three moms juggling busy lives. We could sit around our cubicles and watch this unfold.
Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW What would happen if Sam and Dean weren't hunters? Well, no TV show, for one thing.
Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC People are saying the show's back, but all we can think of is wanting Katherine Heigl's Izzy to hurry up and croak already.
Her Story, 8 p.m., ESPN SportsCenter's Hannah Storm covers female athletes and their unusual stories. This week's most unusual story: teen surfer Bethany Hamilton keeps getting up on the board, despite losing her left arm in a shark attack.
MTV Special, 8 p.m., MTV If Tyson Ritter from All-American Rejects is covering a party in Panama City Beach, it must be spring break time.
Dollhouse, 9 p.m., Fox Eliza Dushku is hot and all, but we liked this show better a few years ago when it had Jessica Alba in it and it was called Dark Angel.
