10-11 PM · NBC · Returns Sept. 28
James Caan and Nikki Cox are out for season 5. Tom Selleck is in. Not surprisingly, creator Gary Scott Thompson says the premiere is ”fantastic” with Selleck as the new owner of the Montecito. ”Tom said, ‘I don’t want to do what Jimmy did — beat people up every week.”’ So he’ll be more mysterious, an ex-Marine and Wyoming rancher. You can also expect to see more musical guests, from Mims to Montgomery Gentry. Plus, the casino strippers go on strike! Led by Molly Sims’ Delinda, because she thinks — and we’re quoting Thompson here — ”they’re being screwed over.” Finally, a reason to be home on Friday at 10!
