Tonight on the Tube: NFL on NBC, ‘Til Death, Happy Hour and American Eats

Super Bowl Champ MousepadTonight the NFL season gets underway for real. The NBC Sunday Night Football crew kicks things off with a Thursday night game. Also new tonight is two new comedies on FOX. The commercials for them have left me with much lack of enthusiasm over their debut. As with most new shows we shall watch and see for ourselves or at least that is what I will be doing. Will you be tuning into FOX for a potential laugh tonight? For other upcoming fall TV shows check out the Ultimate Guide to the Fall 2006 TV Schedule.
