I'm not sure how wise it really is to launch a new season of a TV show on Labor Day. Will people be at home on the couch, or will they biting into some corn on the cob at a barbecue somewhere? The CW and Fox are both hoping it'll be the couch, as both Gossip Girl and Prison Break return for new seasons tonight. (After a toll-paying stunt, TNT's Raising the Bar also premieres tonight, and One Tree Hill starts its sixth season.)
What more is there to say, really, about the Gossip Girl premiere? We've seen the photos, the clips, and even the first five minutes. And yet, I'm sure there will be a surprise or two in tonight's episode, which finds the crew wrapping up a steamy Summer in the Hamptons. Meanwhile, Prison Break has its two-hour premiere, which finds Michael in LA investigating Sara's death — which, of course, may be a little more complex than what we first thought. Also, Sona has burned to the ground, and some of our Break-ers are now unaccounted for.
Will you be watching either show tonight? In case you're just getting caught up, you can watch a quick summary of the first season of Gossip Girl and another of the first three years of Prison Break if you read more.
