Parks and Recreation--"Make My Pit a Park"

Thursday, 8:30 p.m. NBC
From the producers of The Office comes the latest anticipated NBC comedy, this one starring Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones. NBC needs this to be a hit, but early word is that it may get off to a shaky start. But how can anything with Aziz Ansari not be funny?

Southland--"Pilot"

Thursday, 10:00 p.m. NBC
In case you didn't see from the millions of promos over the last week, Southland is premiering. The network has high hopes for the gritty Los Angeles cop show, which stars The O.C.'s Benjamin McKenzie in a very different role.

Harper's Island--"Pilot"

Thursday, 10:00 p.m. CBS
This is what we know about Harper's Island: a lot of people die. This new murder mystery follows a wedding party on a secluded island in the Pacific Northwest in which one guest happens to be a murderer. Someone is expected to die each week, so start taking bets and creating drinking games now!

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles--"Born to Run"

Friday, 8:00 p.m. Fox
The season finale of this sci-fi show could also very well be the series finale--we probably won't know for a while if it gets picked up for a third season. Either way, it promises to be explosive and should be considered must-see TV this week.

What to watch on TV.com:
