Another big night of series and season premieres tonight. Person Of Interest, Charlie's Angels, Prime Suspect and Whitney all make their broadcast network debuts tonight. Plus there's the second night of The X Factor, the post-Steve Carrell version of The Office, the return of Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Parks & Recreation and Community.

There's a lot going on, but at this point the most interesting thing might be seeing how the second night of The X Factor holds up.  Though I am interested to see how Person Of Interest performs, I expect it to do well, particularly following a second episode of The Big Bang Theory. The real test will be next week when it follows the premiere of How To Be A Gentleman.

I'm less optimistic for Charlie's Angels, Whitney and Prime Suspect, but am always happy to be surprised.

I also am guessing The Office will do just fine in its premiere, but the real test will be the coming weeks. As for Community at this point its a grizzled veteran that has survived being thrown at the BBT and American Idol Wolves. But a bit of a different story for Parks & Recreation which moves from the cushier confines of the post-Office slot to 8:30p.

What grabs your interest the most? Maybe I'll surprise you and add a poll. In the meanwhile, here's the ratings table for tonight, minus the ratings:
