It’s a quieter week for premieres and returns, but there are a few standouts. Black Monday is poised to be a winner, and Big Brother: Celebrity Edition (featuring Ottawa comedian Tom Green) will dominate CBS’ schedule for the next few weeks. Also, Billy Campbell’s Cardinal is back for a third season, and Conan O’Brien returns to (very) late night TV with a new half-hour version of his old show. Happy viewing!
