The fall TV season kicks off tonight as Fox premieres the second season of Prison Break and debuts new drama series Vanished (not to be confused with NBC’s similar-sounding abduction drama Kidnapped). Kudos to Fox for getting the jump on the other networks, getting us hooked again on PB, and trying to get us all hooked on a new show that could be similarly twisty, preposterous, and compelling.
But it’s not like there’s not plenty to choose from tonight, which also marks the premiere on HBO of Spike Lee’s much-praised Katrina documentary, When the Levees Broke. And if that weren’t enough, for sheer novelty value, there’s Page Kennedy – the actor notoriously fired from Desperate Housewives and replaced in the role of basement-dweller Caleb – who returns to TV tonight to begin a multi-episode guest arc on Showtime’s Weeds.
