Tonight marks the return of a great, quirky comedy called "My Boys" (TBS, 10:30 p.m.), which enters its third season.
Unlike previous years, TBS hasn't made the season premiere available to me for review, so all I can hope is that the show continues the quality it has shown in previous years.
The unusual thing about "My Boys" is that I have found it has equal fandom among both men and women, one of those rare shows where either a man or a woman can watch with their significant other and not feel like they are chaining them to the couch for a half-hour.
A great deal of that is due to the lead character PJ (Jordana Spiro), a hot sportswriter who just happens to be one of the guys -- more interested in beer and poker with her group of male friends rather than the latest Prada product.
Part of the appeal of the show is that PJ has a great group of friends to hang out with. As a viewer, you feel a part of this group. But I think part of the strong appeal of the show is that women enjoy seeing PJ navigate through life with this group of guys, yet face the same issues every young woman faces.
Tonight's opener picks up where last season left off, with PJ and the gang seeing one of their own, fellow sportswriter Bobby (Kyle Howard) set to marry a gorgeaous Swedish nanny whose green card is set to expire. But as he and PJ deal with their unresolved feelings, PJ is also dating his brother (Billy Burke). Meanwhile, the rest of the gang sets about to see who can grow the biggest mustache.
That might sound like a strange contest, but it's absolutely dead on in the world of "My Boys."
R.I.P. ANDY HALLETT: The former "Angel" co-star died Sunday of congestive heart failure at age 33. According to news reports, the actor, who played the demon night club singer/owner Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan, had been battling heart issues for the past five years. Hallett always brought a great dash of humor (and song) to the role and will be missed.
TUESDAY'S BEST BETS: Once again, a reminder that "Cupid" (ABC, 10 p.m.) kicks off tonight and is worth checking out. It follows reruns of the first two episodes of "Better Off Ted," a pretty solid comedy from ABC, and the "Dancing With The Stars" results show at 9 p.m.
The latest reality monstrosity from Mike Darnell's department at Fox is "The Osbournes: Reloaded" (Fox, 9:20 p.m.) After an 80-minute "American Idol," Fox brings back the family everybody was pretty much tired of already for a wacky variety hour of various skits. I know what I'll be skipping tonight.
"The Biggest Loser" (NBC, 8 p.m.) is brand-new, as is "Law & Order: SVU" at 10 p.m.
CBS has a lineup of new stuff, including "NCIS," "The Mentalist" and "Without A Trace," while the CW has new episodes of "Reaper" and "90210" beginning at 8 p.m.
Finally, on cable, TNT has two hours of "Trust Me" beginning at 9 p.m.
