TO WATCH

SEASON PREMIERE Unforgettable, 9 p.m., CBS We would write a capsule for this Poppy Montgomery series, but we can't remember what it's about. See what we did there?

SERIES PREMIERE Inside the American Mob, 9 p.m., NatGeo Kind of odd that a series about the Mafia is on this channel. Perhaps they'll be focusing on the precise locations of each crime family and explore the environment there.
