Tonight’s Premiere Week Spotlight…Sunday, September 26, 2010

September 26, 2010 by  

Your weekend officially ends at 8pm tonight.  It’s time to get back to business. The business of being a TV addict. Tonight’s a big night for our returning favorites.  Don’t tell me you haven’t missed racing the world with Phil or getting sloshed with the Walkers. The sick and twisted part of you has certainly missed Dexter’s killer smile.

So much to watch, so little room left on the DVR. Here a few highlights from this evening’s TV lineup. We’d love to know what YOU plan on watching…
