What will you watch tonight?

192545__prison_lThe fall TV season kicks off tonight as Fox premieres the second season of Prison Break and debuts new drama series Vanished (not to be confused with NBC’s similar-sounding abduction drama Kidnapped). Kudos to Fox for getting the jump on the other networks, getting us hooked again on PB, and trying to get us all hooked on a new show that could be similarly twisty, preposterous, and compelling.

But it’s not like there’s not plenty to choose from tonight, which also marks the premiere on HBO of Spike Lee’s much-praised Katrina documentary, When the Levees Broke. And if that weren’t enough, for sheer novelty value, there’s Page Kennedy — the actor notoriously fired from Desperate Housewives and replaced in the role of basement-dweller Caleb — who returns to TV tonight to begin a multi-episode guest arc on Showtime’s Weeds.

Tell us, PopWatchers: Which show or shows will you watch live? Which will you record for later? And which will you skip?

    Def be watchin Prison Break and the finale of Treasure Hunters. Have to record Vanished though. Have no interest in watching Either Spike Lee’s new documentary or Weeds.

  • Kat

    I will be watching none of the above (although I would watch the Katrina documentary if I had HBO), and just sit quietly, patiently waiting for the premieres of Lost and The Office.

    I’m so excited for Prison Break! Kudos to Fox (I can’t believe I just said that) for premiering it early, ahead of the baseball playoffs, and not making us wait until November. I also like the idea of airing a block of uninterrupted new episodes a la the upcoming season of Lost. Plus, Wentworth Miller is definitely easy on the eyes..

  • Paul

    Definitely Prison Break and Vanished!

  • t3hdow

    Oh and maybe Vansihed afterwards…

  • Sarah

    I have been waiting for the season premiere of Prison Break since the season finale last year. Too bad I still have to wait until November to see The OC again.

    Heck Yes! I was addicted to Prison Preak last year and will be watching it again this year. I’m not to sure on Vanished though. I have to tape it tonight because of the Treasure Hunters finale.

    What’s Prison Break?
    I watched Mr. Tony on MNF, and interrupted it with my weekly viewing of The Closer.

    Definitely watching Prison Break!! Kudos to Fox for airing it earlier this season…Wentworth is Hot!!

  • cRAIG

    i thought Prison Break was pretty solid last night.
    Vanished, on the other hand, was awful…

  • dma69

    Heck yeah PB.
    (spoiler alert) (spoiler alert)(spoiler alert)
    As much as I hated Veronica, I definitely didn’t expected her to get killed. Wow! What a way to start the new season. Nice to see Scofield in a suite and tie. :)
