Tuesday, Jan. 8

One Tree Hill (The CW, 8 p.m.) - The teen soap returns with a two-hour premiere that flashes forward four years. Welcome to twenty-something, kids.

Bones, House (FOX, 8-10 p.m.) - Been thinking about checking out these two shows? You're in luck. FOX is reairing the pilots for both series on Tuesday, not to be confused with the reruns on Friday.

Wednesday, Jan. 9

Gossip Girl (The CW, 9 p.m.) - "A Thin Line Between Chuck and Nate," the last completed episode, finds Blair wondering if she has a bun in the oven. Please don't go there, Josh Schwartz.

Project Runway (Bravo, 10 p.m.) - The designers must make prom dresses for a group of teenage girls. And Jillian thought licorice was hard to work with.

Thursday, Jan. 10

Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, Big Shots (ABC, 8-11 p.m.) - ABC's got you covered all night long with new episodes of three shows. Bailey and Derek both find themselves at major turning points in the last completed Grey's Anatomy while Charisma Carpenter (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) guest stars on Big Shots.

30 Rock (NBC, 8:30 p.m.) - Last chance for a new laugh.

Make Me A Supermodel (Bravo, 10 p.m.) - The Bravo reality competition show pits six girls and six guys against each other. Instead of Tyra doing the picking, the viewers get to vote on who stays and who goes each week. Last week's Meet the Models special with hosts Tyson Beckford and Niki Taylor reairs at 9 p.m.

Friday, Jan. 11

Friday Night Lights (NBC, 9 p.m.) - Tim is still causing tension in the Taylor house. The show is still new and good. And you're still not watching, why?

Moonlight (CBS, 9 p.m.) - Fill your cheesy, immortal love quota here. CBS' vamp procedural drama isn't particularly good TV, but it's a pleasant enough way to pass the time and star Alex O'Loughlin, a charismatic actor with promise, is worth the painful dialogue.

Monk, Psych (USA, 9-11 p.m.) - USA's line-up of character-friendly, quirky procedurals is back.

Saturday, Jan. 12

Day of rest. Take a breather. Go outside.

Sunday, Jan. 13

With the writers picketing and many stars boycotting the Golden Globe Awards (NBC, 8 p.m.), it's probably going to be a long and dry show even with all the free alcohol. Those who are only in it to check out the dresses or drunken speeches might want to check out something else this year like these programs:

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8 p.m.) - In case you didn't already know from all the commercials and billboards, the show premieres tonight before moving to its regular timeslot on Mondays at 9 p.m.

Brothers & Sisters (ABC, 10 p.m.) - Those dysfunctional Walkers are back with guest stars Ken Olin, Danny Glover, Steven Weber and, hopefully, plenty of alcohol.
