On TV tonight
SEASON PREMIERE American Idol, 8 p.m., Fox Folks, allow us to introduce you to judge Ellen DeGeneres, who, as far as we know, has had no experience in the recording industry. Makes perfect sense. Oh, also Posh Spice.
Better Off Ted, 8:30 p.m., ABC A typo in a memo orders employees to "now engage in offensive language.'' Where did they get that, our newsroom?
The Forgotten, 10 p.m., ABC A man who signed up for medical trials is found dead in a seepage pit. So much for our plan to pay off the credit cards from Christmas.
SEASON PREMIERE Little Miss Perfect, 10 p.m., WEtv We can't even begin to tell you how much this show creeps us out. So much so that we can't stop watching it. — Joshua Gillin firstname.lastname@example.org
