Sunday

Tuesday

Prison Break – 9 to 10pm on Fox/City – 5th Season Premiere (Revival)

A hit show on Fox has a better chance of revival than on any other network. Think back to 2002, when they cancelled Family Guy, only to revive it three years later when syndication and DVD sales proved there was an audience for the show. Since then, a number of shows have been brought back, including The X-Files and 24. Now, Prison Break lives on past its 2009 series finale, as Lincoln Burrows and Sara Tancredi reunite to follow up on evidence that suggests Michael Scofield might still be alive!

iZombie – 9 to 10pm on The CW – 3rd Season Premiere

Friday

The Toy Box – 8 to 9pm on ABC – Series Premiere

Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet hosts this reality series where kids judge new toys presented by the inventors.

First Dates – 8 to 9pm on NBC – Series Premiere

Based on a UK reality series, a mix of couples all have their first place in the same restaurant on the same night. Cameras capture the goings-on, and home viewers are invited to judge whether they are right for each other.

You, the Jury – 9 to 10pm on Fox – Series Premiere

Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro hosts this reality series where some of America’s most controversial civil cases are litigated by six top defense and prosecution lawyers, and viewers can then vote.
