Holy jeebus my eyeballs are gonna fall out. There's about a 1/2 dozen series premieres and a 1/2 dozen season premieres tonight. Unfortnately the only new thing calling my name is the Bionic Woman (9:00pm NBC) but that's based on junior high school fantasies and not what I've seen so far of this show. Prime time offers such an overabundance of mediocrity I'm tempted to head off to TCM at 8:00pm and watch the original Absent Minded Professor with Fred MacMurray (you know, Flubber?) as a kind of mental comfort food. Check out late night TV though, there's plenty of good stuff there, mostly without conflict.

8:00pm The War PBS - Part IV: This is the one with D-Day.

8:00pm Back to You FOX - Series Premiere.
