"Life Unexpected" an unexpected gem

"Life Unexpected," which debuts tonight on The CW, is way better than most CW fare of late. In fact -- and this is the ultimate compliment -- it's a little reminiscent of "Gilmore Girls" (but darker and without the distractingly wacky townfolk).

It's about a fifteen-year-old girl in Portland, Oregon, the product of a high school one night stand who has been cruelly bounced around the foster care system her entire life.

Lux (played by Brittany Robertson, who is from Charlotte) is about to turn 16 and wants to be emancipated from the system, so she finds her real father to ask him to officially sign away his rights.

How I Met Your Mother (8pm, CBS) - Marshall tries to convince Lily that a beautiful woman (Amanda Peet) kissed him. Robin learns she's the subject of a drinking game.
