* Chuck (8 pm/ET NBC) Superspy Sarah's complex feelings for Chuck are put under the microscope at the behest of agency bigwig Diane Beckman, who last week surmised that Sarah's emotions are compromising her job performance. Enter a sightly but frosty female agent named Alex (Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica ), who's assigned to oversee Chuck and evaluate Sarah. Tension soon escalates between the two women, so expect the gloves to come off - foxy-lady style. Then there's that freak-and-geek tandem "Jeffster," who team up with Morgan in an effort to crash Awesome's bachelor party. * Greek (8 pm/ET ABC Family) Jesse McCartney plays incoming freshman Andy as this college series returns with more second-season episodes. Andy is an old high-school pal of Calvin's, and he becomes an instant hit on campus - so much so that both Calvin and Rusty's fraternities want him as a member. Meanwhile, sophomore Rusty adjusts to living at the Kappa Tau house, while his big sis Casey has secret plans to move out of the Zeta Beta Zeta house. * House (8 pm/ET Fox) House is a patient tonight, but that's not what makes the episode unusual. In fact, it's only a plot device to get him next to the real patient of the week, an injured bicyclist named Lee (Mos Def) who can't move or talk or communicate in any way. The docs treating him think he's comatose, but the patient in the next bed (that would be our antihero, House, who was hurt in a motorcycle mishap) has other ideas. Much of the episode is told from Lee's point of view: You see what Lee sees. * CSI: Miami (10 pm/ET CBS) At the end of last week's harrowing episode, Ryan was kidnapped by thugs working for Ivan Sarnoff, the Russian mob boss Horatio recently put behind bars. But he's not held captive for long. Why? They want Ryan to cover up evidence of a robbery-homicide connected to the mob and frame someone else. If he refuses, they threaten to kill Billy Gantry, the young son of Ryan's former Gambler's Anonymous sponsor, whom they have taken hostage. Talk about a rock and a hard place. * Holiday Hostage Hell (11 pm/ET Travel) Most Travel Channel shows make you want to see the world. This one might make you want to stay home. It details true accounts of travelers who've found themselves in horrifying hostage situations abroad. The series opener tells the story of British botanist Tom Hart Dyke, who was kidnapped by Colombian guerrillas while backpacking in the Darien Gap, and then held captive in the jungle for nine long months.

Some of the events we are eager for on this week's television: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency bows on HBO ! I've never read the books and am not necessarily eager for another detective-themed series, but it's airing on HBO (counts for something, right?) and in the very least offers some specular African cinematography. Tricia Helfer on Chuck ! Battlestar Galactica may be gone (sobs), but at least you can check out Six herself on this week's new Chuck as an agent sent to evaluate Sarah's performance. I sense an impending girlfight...and how good has Chuck been lately?! Greek returns to ABC Family! Dare I say that sometimes I find myself enjoying Greek more than Gossip Girl ? Since the two shows will now air against each other...some tough viewing decisions will have to be made on which one gets watched first! Look for the Casey and Frannie feud to escalate, as Frannie launches her new competing ZBZ sorority, IKI. Mos Def on House ! With no new House last week, you'll mos definitely want to watch this week's all new episode, which includes a guest starring turn from none other than Mos Def as a man "Locked In" his own body; he is conscious, but cannot move or communicate. My Boys Season 3 Premieres on TBS ! I wasn't completely enthralled with some of the more recent episodes of My Boys (I think it has gotten itself stuck in the "will they/won't they conundrum" and needs to find a way to elevate itself), but the show still remains charming...especially for a TBS sitcom that I never expected much from originally. 90210 finally returns with new episodes! It has been far too long of a hiatus for The CW 's only new show this season that resembles a hit..and they've been teasing us with these Fast and the Furious-style previews for far too long. This is the first of 8 new episodes. Cupid 2.0 premieres on ABC! It's a bold move to remake a series that failed a few years ago, and I am not necessarily convinced that it will fare any better this time around...but Cupid comes from Rob Thomas ( Veronica Mars ), so I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Life on Mars ends! It started off looking like a surprise hit for ABC, but ratings fizzled week by week until like so many other ABC dramas this season, Mars received the axe. At least it was given enough notice to film a proper finale, which airs this Wednesday night. ER says goodbye after 15 seasons! Even if you lost touch with ER a few seasons ago (much like myself), for nostalgia sake alone, you'll want to tune in for the show's series finale. It's an all night event beginning with a retrospective, followed by a 2 hour episode. CBS Thursday lineup is in tact! For you non-March Madness fanatics, you'll be pleased to know that Thursday night is back in tact this week on CBS after many changes due to basketball. Survivor: Tocantins , CSI and Eleventh Hour are all new and airing in their correct time slots. What are you most excited for this week?
After her summer internship, Casey (Spencer Grammer) returns to campus with secret plans to move out of the ZBZ house. However she fears hurting Ashleigh (Amber Stevens) at a time when she needs her most, as the drama with Frannie's (Tiffany Dupont) new sorority is heating up, causing Ashleigh to enlist a secret spy - a spy that Casey isn't sure can truly be trusted. Meanwhile Calvin (Paul James) introduces his high school friend and new Cyprus-Rhodes freshman Andy (Jesse McCartney) to Rusty, who takes an instant liking to him and encourages Andy to join KT. But Andy gets locked in an epic battle for brotherhood, as Evan (Jake McDorman), upon seeing just how in demand Andy is on campus, wants him join Omega Chi. What lengths will Calvin and Rusty go to to win Andy's pledge? Having spent his summer as a camp counselor, alongside guest star Ken Marino, Rusty (Jacob Zachar) begins his sophomore year on campus by finally moving into the Kappa Tau house.

We couldn't be more thrilled that the light, fluffy goodness of Greek is returning to ABC Family for a new season to shelter us from the doom-and-gloom of current everyday life with its promise of endless keg parties and pink sorority T-shirts. Sure, there was some angst brewing last we left Cyprus Rhodes: Frannie was forming a rogue sorority on pledge night, Casey was deciding between a D.C. internship and Max...but mostly we were in it for the one-liners and, well, Cappie. The new season begins March 30 -- with the results of that sorority shake-up, Casey's decision, and new addition Jesse McCartney! -- so if you've been missing out on this televisual equivalent of happy pills, now's the time to tune in. And if you don't know -- or don't remember -- the difference between a Kappa Tau and an Omega Chi, you're in luck: We've also got ABC Family's handy catch-up guide here first. EW.com: 'Greek' teases its new season
There's some exciting things coming up on ABC Family starting with the premiere of an all new Original Movie tonight! Here's what you can look forward to for the rest of March: March 15 - Premiere of Au Pair 3, Adventure in Paradise @ 8/7c The Caldwells are back for an all new third installment of the ABC Family original Au Pair movies! March 16 - Series Finale of Kyle XY @9/8c It pains me to even write that this episode, "Bringing Down the House", is the show's series finale. Will Kyle defeat Cassidy and Latnok? Will he end up with Jesse or Amanda? March 23 - Season Finale of The Secret Life of The American Teenager @ 8/7c I never thought the day would come, but in the season finale, titled "And Unto Us, a Child Is Born", Amy finally gives birth to her baby. March 23 - Premiere of Roommates "Roommates" is an all new ABC Family comedy series that follows a group of friends in New York City trying to figure out love and life in their post-collegiate years. March 23 - Premiere of Sophie Just when everything is going so well, Sophie's life gets turned upside down. But Sophie's taking it all in stride. After all, she's just met the love of her life: her perfect newborn baby boy. But even he brings an unexpected surprise that throws everyone for a loop. It's tough to be a single mom determined to rebuild her life, but with a little luck and some help from her friends, it's going to be an unforgettable ride. March 30 - Return of Greek Greek is not just one of my favorite shows on ABC Family, but one of my favorites on TV, so I am thrilled that it is returning for Part 2 of its second season! Joining the cast for these episodes is singer/actor Jesse McCartney, which should be a lot of fun. What upcoming ABC Family event are you most looking forward to?
Greek returns to ABC Family on March 30th at 8pm for the second part of its second season (yes, I'm confused about that part too), just think of it as Season 2.2. Joining the cast is Jesse McCartney, whose song, How Do You Sleep? is featured in the video preview below. But even if you don't care for the song, it's just exciting to get to see what's coming up in the all new episodes of Greek. For The Preview Click here . Source here
Yay! Greek has been renewed for a third season ! But...not all of the sisters will make it to Season 3... Actress Tiffany Dupont, who plays evil sister Frannie, will no longer be a regular in the show's third season (note: when the show returns in March, it will still be Season 2, so Frannie isn't quite done stirring up trouble yet), ABC Family has announced. The decision was said to be a combination of creative and budgetary reasons. So, sad to see Frannie go or do you think by the end of this season her story will have played out? Source: EW
ABC Family has announced that they have picked up both Greek and Lincoln Heights for additional seasons. Pending is the renewal of smash-hit The Secret Life of The American Teenager , though the question is not will the show be picked up, but for how many episodes. Greek will resume its second season on March 30, after The Secret Life of The American Teenager finishes up its run. But for the bad news: the current season of Kyle XY will be the show's last. ABC Family has opted not to renew the show, likely due to its declining ratings this season, which premiered earlier this month. Monday nights are a harsh business; there is an awful lot of competition and I guess people just don't have time for our favorite belly-button free genius anymore... And it's too bad because I actually enjoy Kyle XY , though if I had to choose between Kyle and the superb Greek, I am much happier that Greek will be sticking around (Lincoln Heights is not one that I watch, but it seems decent too). So now that you know that Kyle will be ending at the end of this season, how would you like things to wrap up? ABC has also picked up pilots for 3 new series, which you can read more about in the Hollywood Reporter . One is called Perfect 10 and centers around the competitive world of gymnastics, which I sincerely hope makes it to air, as I will watch just about anything focusing on gymnastics, no matter how bad it may be...

ABC Family's Greek pledges to deliver even more young/pretty-people angst when it launches its new season on Monday, March 30. The series will claim the Mondays-at-8 pm/ET slot once The Secret Life of The American Teenager wraps its current run. What's ahead for the ZBZ and Kappa Tau Gamma crowds when Greek comes back? Here are a few scooplets: * Casey makes some drastic changes to her life, having spent the summer interning in Washington, D.C. * Ashleigh gets herself a new boy toy, and he's played by Andrew West. * Evan makes decisions which impact his relationships with both Frannie and frat bro Calvin. * Watch for the show to shed light on "When Cappie Met Evan" -- though not via a traditional flashback.

Episode 2.11 - Take Me Home, Cyprus-Rhodes [Airing March 25]: Rusty has been working as a camp counselor at Camp Tall Pines. At the beginning of the episode, it's the last day of camp and Rusty sees his group of boys off. Casey's congressional internship with Paula Baker is coming to an end. She and Max made it through the summer. Casey looks for an apartment to rent in order to put her life on a more serious path. Ashleigh must deal with sisters defecting to the Alpha Omega (AO) house, Frannie's new sorority. Cappie, Beaver and other KTs have fun with a Slip-n-Slide. Rusty introduces freshman Andy, a 18-year-old jock with whom Calvin used to play football in high school, to his friends. Fraternities will all try to get Andy to rush with them as he is the number one football recruit. Frannie shows the AO house to her new sisters and introduces them to Joan, their 70-year-old landlady who lives in the house and has the right to mingle with them occasionnaly if she gives notice. This surprise will not suit well with the ZBZs who agreed to follow Frannie to the AO house. Rebecca, Beth, Brenda, Andrea, Laura, Betsy, Evan, Dale also appear. Source: Spoilerfix
