Stopping At 'Traffic Light'

Fox debuts a new sitcom tonight called "Traffic Light" at 9:30 p.m., airing behind a new "Raising Hope" at 9 p.m.

I haven't gotten a screener for this one, either (shame on you, Fox) but I can tell you it's based upon an Israeli series of the same name. It's about three guys in various stages of relationships.

It's not exactly the freshest idea out there. ABC has the sitcom "Better With You," about three couples at various stages in their romantic life, and NBC just debuted the new sitcom "Perfect Couples," essentially the same thing.

Hopefully, "Traffic Light" will fare better than the Will Arnett-Keri Russell comedy, "Running Wilde," which lasted only a few episodes earlier this season.

TUESDAY'S BEST BETS: TOO MUCH TV!!! Please, network executives, for the love of Philo Farnsworth, let's spread out the wealth a little.

Everything is all-new since it's sweeps. CBS has new episodes of "NCIS," "NCIS: LA" and "The Good Wife," which brings back Michael J. Fox as a lawyer who uses his disability to sway juries.

ABC has a new "No Ordinary Family," "V" and "Detroit 1-8-7-." Please, for the love of all things David Sarnoff, someone kill off Erica's son Tyler on "V." He might be the single-worst character on TV right now.

NBC has a new "Parenthood" at 10 p.m. after "The Biggest Loser," while Fox airs a new "Glee" before its sitcoms. Hopefully, "Glee" will be better than the silly Super Bowl episode that just aired Sunday.

The CW has new episodes of "One Tree Hill" and "Hellcats," while PBS continues the documentary series "Pioneers of Television" at 10 p.m.

Things are also busy on cable as Lights finds himself increasing trapped on "Lights Out" (FX, 10 p.m.) Meanwhile, Neil and Peter work with a veteran con man in guest star Billy Dee Williams on "White Collar" (USA, 10 p.m.)
