Genre: Sitcom

Starring: Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Sara Gilbert, Melissa Rauch, Mayim Bialik & Kevin Sussman

Welcome back Big Bang Theory! Last season left off with Leonard (Johnny Galecki) getting the chance to get on boat in the arctic to do a science study or Stephen Hawking and Raj (Kunal Hayyar) has found his tongue around girls. So now it’s just a matter of getting the man to shut up and to not sound like such a chick around the chicks. Now since Leonard is away on a trip, this episode shows that Sheldon misses him so much! It was adorable to see him so human for once. It was adorable because then the pair of them bonded even more sharing embarrassing secrets! He actually told her that she hurt his feelings and then she hugged him. Now, that was cute and all, but the best part of this episode was Howard and Raj. Apparently the cream that Howard has been rubbing on his mothers’ back had high amounts of estrogen in it, and he’s been absorbing it through his hands for a few weeks now, turning into a woman with the hormones and all, and he and Raj decide to measure their “boob” sizes. That was priceless hilarity. Thursdays @ 8PM (EST) on CBS.

Genre: Comedy

Starring: Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Wolk, Hamish Linklater & Amanda Setton

Robin Williams returns to his life on the small screen, a role he hasn’t filled since Mork & Mindy, as Simon Roberts, a Chicago advertising executive, a man who can sell anything. Joining him on the cast is Sarah Michelle Gellar, his daughter and partner in the company who is the parent in her relationship with her father (a relationship I can relate to in regards to my mother). Titled The Crazy Ones, this show is certainly crazy fun with a cast this brilliant. In this first episode, the company is on the verge of losing their biggest client McDonalds. So Simon Roberts makes a big promise and pulls out all the stops in order to get Grammy Winner Kelly Clarkson to pull a new spin on the McDonalds jingle. If you know Robin Williams, you know that he is hilarious and brilliant. This is by far, the best new comedy this fall. Thursdays @ 9PM (EST) on CBS.

Genre: Sitcom

Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor, Courtney Throne-Smith & Amber Tamblyn

Charlie Harper is back…so to speak. In last nights’ episode, as the show enters its 11th season (wow, that’s impressive) Amber Tamblyn comes knocking to find her father who she hadn’t seen since she was four. Her father was non-other than the notorious Charlie Harper. If you ask me, this is a very clever twist on the two and a half men title. I say this even though she is a woman, and I in no means mean what I am about to say to be insensitive, but as gay men are indicated in popular culture as feminine, gay women are thought of as more masculine, and Amber Tamblyn was a great choice for that. It may seem like the writers and creators are grasping at straws to many, but if you look behind the meaning, it’s actually still very accurate a title and represents the other sex and sexual orientation. It’s nice to see a drunken booze hound again in a different form, see, she’s not a carbon copy but rather her own person, her own individual who fits in perfectly with the cast and characters of the show. Personally, I loved it and I only hope it brings Two and a half Men back to its glory days. Thursdays @ 930PM (EST) on CBS.

Genre: Crime Drama

Starring: Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, Aiden Quinn & Jon Michael Hill

Season two brings us to London! But don’t worry Sherlock fans, it’s only for the first episode. Introducing classic characters such as Inspector Lestrade (Sean Pertwee) and Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans). Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson have been called back to London to find Sherlock’s old colleague Lestrade who has his mind wrapped around this case that Scotland Yard isn’t putting its whole attention to. This pulls Holmes and Watson into the case to follow Lestrade’s lead and reveal the culprit. This also puts him at odds with his brother who has taken up residence in his old house and gives us views the old sibling rivalry story which goes hand in hand with the original writing of Sherlock Holmes. It was a wonderful episode and a great way to kick off the season, by bringing us the humor that was starting to become lost near the end of last season and introducing us to the classic characters in the Sherlock Holmes Universe. And with the previews, next episode looks like it’s going to be even more hilarious. This is an amazing cast and I love the writing of this show. Thursdays @ 10PM (EST) on CBS.
