Tonight: The TiVo Buster

Sept. 26, 9 p.m.: NBC's "Bionic Woman" vs. ABC's "Private Practice" vs. CBS's "Criminal Minds" vs. Fox's "Kitchen Nightmares" vs. The CW's "Gossip Girl."

Network oddsmakers are putting their chips on "Private" to beat key contender "Bionic." "Science fiction," said one analyst, holding his fingers a few inches apart, "compared to 'Grey's Anatomy' spin-off," spreading his hands wide. ("Heroes" notwithstanding, of course).

Other burning questions include how CBS’s "Kid Nation" wrangles week two, if viewers will check out ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" and whether NBC viewers will stick around after "Bionic" for a show that sounds like a breakfast cereal.
