The J.J. Abrams creation has a few obvious things going for it: besides Abrams, there's hot leading man Boris Kodjoe, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who's proven that she knows how to kick ass. I think the show has upped its action sequences since the pilot, but the series still tries a little too hard to make its central duo a cutesy couple. Another episode airs tonight, so tell me, have you been tuning in?

I've been missing my Wednesday comedy fix for months now, but thankfully that's all about to change! Tonight, ABC is back with sophomore seasons of two of my favorite comedies, Cougar Town and Modern Family. Cougar Town will have a very special premiere thanks to one amazing guest star, and even Busy Philipps herself confirmed that there's a lot of fun ahead in season two. Meanwhile, Modern Family returns with even more hijinks, which includes more PDA, some bike shorts, and a princess castle for little Lily.
As the icing on the cake, ABC is adding a brand new comedy to its lineup, and it's one that I've already been gushing over. JoAnna Garcia's Better With You premieres at 8:30 p.m. Not only is it one of my top 5 new shows to watch, but it's also got a new heartthrob to gush over.
If all that is still not piquing your interest, there are three more shows for you to try on for size. NBC debuts J.J. Abrams's new spy series Undercovers, and at 10 p.m. you can take your pick of new lawyer shows: ABC's got The Whole Truth and CBS unveils The Defenders with Jerry O'Connell.
It's a long night of TV. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll bang your gavel.

It's September and what would Fall TV be without a new class of hot guys? We've already checked out the kickass female characters, our top five new shows, and the hardest DVR decisions. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy the manjoyment. From handsome guy James Wolk to shirtless Alex O'Loughlin, we've gathered up the sexiest guys to keep an eye out for on Fall TV. Use our printable premiere calendar to know when to tune in and watch our top 10 men on this PopSugar Rush Fall TV special!
I've been on a quest to find the most kickass female character of all time, but there are a handful of new ladies around the bend that are already suitable for entering the running. This year's crop of Fall TV shows brings with it five female characters with one thing in common: they're all badass in their own right.
What it's about: Former CIA agents Samantha and Steven Bloom (Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Boris Kodjoe) run a successful catering company together and have plenty of money and a gorgeous home to show for it. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for their marriage, which is comfortable but lacking passion. When a friend gets into trouble, the husband and wife are pulled back into the spy world, where the danger and excitement of their missions provides a spark in their relationship.
Where it works: Mbatha-Raw and Kodjoe are believably sexy as a flawless-on-the-surface couple, and the pilot is smooth and stylish. It moves at a good enough pace and there are a few well-timed laughs (mostly from supporting characters gushing over one of the leads).
Where it doesn't: Maybe I'm just getting a little tired of the spy genre in general, but I expected more from J.J. Abrams. Considering this is the man that brought us Alias and Lost, I was hoping for something a bit more cutting edge than run-of-the-mill.
Am I hooked? Nah. I'll check out a few more episodes but if the show presents a new mission a week, I might just stick with my reigning spy show Chuck.
When it's on: Undercovers premieres Tuesday, September 22 at 8 p.m.

The Summer TCA is bringing us looks at tons of new Fall shows, and the next one — NBC's Undercovers — fits into several different genres. It's a sexy action/comedy/drama from J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims, who worked on Felicity together back in the day, and it stars the extremely attractive Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a married couple who take a break from domestic life to make a brief return to spy life. The leads and cast chatted about the new Fall series and gave us a look at we can expect.

Week one of the Summer TCA wrapped up yesterday with presentations from NBC. The morning started with The Event starring Jason Ritter, who later confided in us that he actually doesn't even know what the event is. Next it was onto JJ Abram's Undercovers followed by a panel with the execs where Steve Carell's departure from The Office was a hot topic. Outsourced is their latest workplace comedy and the producers had to face lots of tough questions about the show and stereotypes. NBC saved the best for last with Jimmy Fallon talking Late Night and hosting the Emmys, which he said is going to be more interactive this year. He also said they do have some musical performance ideas for the show, joking, "it's a fun emotion to experience and you don't get to do it much, but we booked J Lo and Steven Tyler." Later that evening he talked about Robert is Bothered with us — stay tuned for more details and follow Buzz on Twitter for updates from the panels!
