Golden Globe Awards (8pm, NBC) - Host Ricky Gervais (left) joked with Conan O'Brien earlier this week that since the awards show is on NBC, maybe it'll get canceled before air time. Unlikely. But if Gervais is half as biting tonight in his NBC commentary as he was on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" Wednesday, NBC will probably not ask him to host again. I'm positive he will be irreverant and hilarious.
Human Target (8pm, Fox) - Mark Valley (right) stars in this new adaptation of a DC Comics adventure. Valley ("Boston Legal") is Christopher Chance, a bodyguard who rents himself out as a literal human target. The show is funny and dramatic, which suits Valley well. Another reason to give it a shot is the presence of Chi McBride ("Pushing Daisies"), who stars as Valley's boss, Winston.
Big Love (9pm, HBO) - Even though Nikki is likely to become the next Prophet at Juniper Creek, Bill considers running for Utah state senate.
24 (9pm, Fox) - Dammit, Chloe! We're running out of time! That's right, Jack is back. It's hour 1 of Day 8, and the action begins in New York City. In addition to the obvious return of Kiefer Sutherland, Cherry Jones is back as President Taylor. The season will also feature newcomers Freddie Prinze Jr and Katee Sackhoff.
Brothers & Sisters (10pm, ABC) - Cheryl Hines guest stars as Buffy, Kitty's friend who comes in between her and Robert in a political development. You read that right: Buffy and Kitty.
