On TV tonight
SEASON PREMIERE The Big Bang Theory, 8 p.m., CBS Sheldon and Penny get a little cozier than Leonard would like, marking this as the official point in which the show gets too serious for its fan base's liking.
SEASON PREMIERE Parks and Recreation, 8 p.m., NBC Everyone goes to London, but we already know Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are leaving at midseason, so let the mourning of Ann and Chris begin now.
SEASON PREMIERE Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC Somewhere along the way, Shonda Rhimes decided Seattle routinely gets Superstorm Sandy-like weather conditions. Earthquakes and volcanoes, sure. Even some windstorms. But hurricanes? No.
SERIES PREMIERE The Crazy Ones, 9 p.m., CBS Robin Williams is back on TV, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer is his daughter. We can see it.
SERIES PREMIERE The Michael J. Fox Show, 9 p.m., NBC A TV personality gets Parkinson's and decides to quit, then drives his family so crazy he goes back to work. There's plenty of Michael J. Fox's life story tied up in this one.
SEASON PREMIERE Two and a Half Men, 9:30 p.m., CBS Amber Tamblyn replaces the half a man, who badmouthed the show before running off to college. Somehow it's not shocking Charlie Harper would have illegitimate children.
SEASON PREMIERE Elementary, 10 p.m., CBS Sherlock has a brother in England, and he looks an awful lot like the Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man.
SEASON PREMIERE Parenthood, 10 p.m., NBC Crosby and Jasmine's baby unites the family. For lunch, at least.
SEASON FINALE Supermarket Superstar, 10:30 p.m., Lifetime Three winning cooks return to compete for $10,000 and a recipe in supermarkets, forever winning over people who cruise Publix on Saturdays just to get the free samples.
