Roommates (ABC Family): Series Premiere. The story of a group of post college friends trying to figure out what to do with their lives starts out with a guy wanting to move into the apartment because his old high school crush lives there. Runs 30 minutes. Plays again late night tomorrow. I’ve seen about half the episode and it looks like it could be fun. It has a sort of Friends vibe. The show that follows it tonight, Sophie, is one of the worst shows I’ve seen in a long time. It is the story of a woman that has the worst day of her life and not one thing about it was funny.

Saving Grace (TNT): New. Grace and Ham are back together as partners and they are investigating the death of a woman found in a swimming pool. Clay throws a party at Grace’s without permission. Plays again later.
