Tuesday night brings more premieres, but after five new series on Monday, only three new series premiere Tuesday: Detroit 1-8-7 and the Fox sitcoms Raising Hope and Running Wilde.  They join the season premieres of  Glee, The Biggest Loser, NCIS, and a two hour NCIS: Los Angeles.

Programming notes:  because of the two-hour NCIS: LA premiere, The Good Wife doesn't premiere until next Tuesday and because of the Dancing with the Stars premiere week, No Ordinary Family doesn't premiere until next Tuesday.  You can check out other premiere dates here.

Unfortunately no time to dig up last year's averages, but below is a little trip down memory lane with last year's Tuesday premiere week preliminary overnight numbers and then an empty grid with tonight's schedule. If I have time tomorrow and am not feeling cowardly, I might fill in my guesses and/or Bill might chime in with his own.

But I didn't want to let any of that deter your guessing!

Premiere Tuesday 2009 (September 22, 2009) Note: Last year The Biggest Loser premiered a week earlier to bolster the premiere of The Jay Leno Show (ah, memories!).
