First up, we have Mom, Chuck Lorre's new comedy starring Allison Janney and Anna Faris. as mother and daughter, who are both recovering alcoholics and trying to get along, as Faris' Christ attempts to raise her own daughter.

Following Mom is CBS' new drama Hostages, which comes from Jerry Bruckheimer, written by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, and stars Toni Collette, a top surgeon who's set to operate on the President of the United States when her family is taken hostage by Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott), a rogue FBI agent who wants her to assassinate the Present while he's on the operating table.
Tate Donovan also stars, playing Toni Collette's character's overbearing husband Brian. Hostages is set to debut tonight at 10:00 p.m. on CBS, competing with NBC's new drama The Blacklist.
Because TV is always better with Spader, we get The Blacklist, NBC's exciting looking new drama from Jon Bokenkamp, which stars James Spader as Red Reddington, one of FBI's most wanted fugitives. Known as "The Concierge of Crime," Reddington's had dealings with criminals all over the world, and for some reason, he's decided to turn himself into the FBI and offer them assistance in catching these criminals, but he'll only work with Liz Keen (Megan Boone).
What's this guy's deal? We're not sure, but The Blacklist sure looks like it could be great. See what Jessica had to say about the series premiere in her review here. And tune in to The Blacklist tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
