The breakout character from the Captain America: The First Avenger, finally gets her own series to kick ass and take names. The show begins with a two-hour premiere and will run eight episodes until Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns March 3.

The new Fox series stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson as former partners feuding over a musical empire. The show, from director Lee Daniels (The Butler) and writer Danny Strong (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2), will feature original music produced by Timbaland.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_sISXrxZ8I&w=560&h=315]

Journey back to the magical land of Portland to visit Fred & Carrie, Candace & Toni, Spike & Iris, and all of the residents of that wonderfully weird town.

Archer (10 p.m., FX)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3WrguSbMLM]

Babylon (10 p.m., Sundance TV)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H3JdvlmoyU&w=560&h=315]

From director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later) comes a series being described as “a workplace satire set inside a modern police force.” Babylon looks like a fun, less grim version of Homeland, and anything with actress Brit Marling (Sound of My Voice, The East) is worth checking out.

Sunday, Jan. 11

Shameless (9 p.m., Showtime)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD293NwnoEc]

Girls (9 p.m., HBO)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWEuYfww6k4&w=560&h=315]

The fourth season of the HBO comedy has a few notable guest stars lined up including: Zachary Quinto, Jason Ritter, Marc Maron, and Community‘s Gillian Jacobs.

Togetherness (9:30 p.m., HBO)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P4xiI5HDOw&w=560&h=315]

The new comedy series from Mark and Jay Duplass (Jess Who Lives At Home, Cyrus) looks like another suburban mid-life crisis story, but the Duplass brothers have a good eye for producing interesting indie projects (like this year’s excellent The One I Love and The Skeleton Twins), so let’s hope this proves to be more than just “First World Problems: The Series.” Mark Duplass also stars, alongside the always great Melanie Lynsky (Happy Christmas, The Perks of Being a Wallflower).

House of Lies (10 p.m., Showtime)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewVKXP9wS-8&w=560&h=315]

The 13-episode seventh season of one of the best comedies of all time will also be its final one. NBC will air two episodes, back-to-back every Tuesday, culminating in the series finale on Feb. 24th.

Kroll Show (10:30 p.m., Comedy Central)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gldvWHtoiDU&w=560&h=315]

Kroll Show might be the smartest and sharpest satire of reality television ever and, sadly, this will be its final season. Nick Kroll (The League, The James Franco Roast) plays multiple characters that each have their own reality shows. Amazing comedians like Chelsea Peretti (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), John Mulaney (Saturday Night Live), and Jenny Slate (Parks and Recreation, Obvious Child) also pop up as recurring characters. The first two seasons of Kroll show are available now on iTunes and Amazon Prime streaming.

Man Seeking Woman (10:30 p.m., FXX)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLZ1PfpvThI&w=560&h=315]

The series, from Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich, stars Jay Baruchel (She’s Out of My League, How to Train your Dragon) as the titular man looking for love in surreal and absurd dating situations.

Broad City (10:30 p.m., Comedy Central)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhvBC-Ml01E&w=560&h=315]

Broad City is one of the best new shows of 2014. The Amy Poehler-produced comedy is created, written and stars UCB alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. The two play twenty-something stoners trying to make it in New York.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXuJONpEpXg&w=560&h=315]

Season two of the critically acclaimed BBC drama will premiere on Netflix for American audiences. The series stars Gillian Anderson as a detective on the trail of a serial killer, played by 50 Shades of Grey‘s Jamie Dornan. Season one is available now on Netflix.

Monday, Jan. 19

The Originals (8 p.m., CW)

Jane the Virgin (9 p.m., CW)

Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show (11:30 p.m., Comedy Central)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX6xoYMNJfw&w=560&h=315]

As Stephen Colbert gives up the alter-ego of Stephen Colbert to take over David Letterman’s Late Show, Jon Stewart has appointed longtime Daily Show correspondent and writer-comedian Larry Wilmore to occupy the post-Daily Show spot. Although the show’s original title, The Minority Report, had more bite to it, I’m sure Wilmore will do great with The Nightly Show.

Tuesday, Jan. 20

The Flash (8 p.m., CW)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBWWtau9GoU?&w=560&h=315]

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNE8s_YpRlU]

Backstrom (9 p.m., Fox)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sNY3ffP010]

Executive produced by Hart Hansen (Bones), Backstrom is based on a Swedish book series by Leif G. W. Persson. The crime drama has similarities to some of Fox’s previous shows. It has the lightness and comedy of Bones, while Rainn Wilson’s mean-smartguy Everett Backstrom is reminiscent of House, if Dr. House solved crimes instead of medical mysteries.

This Is Not Happening (12:30 a.m., Comedy Central)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owOCu8n03o8&w=560&h=315]

Based on the web series of the same name, This Is Not Happening is a stand-up show in which comedians like Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Steve Rannazzisi (The League), and Natasha Leggero (The James Franco Roast) tell hilariously embarrassing stories. The web series is available now on Youtube.

Fresh Off the Boat (8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., ABC – moves to Tuesdays at 9 starting February 10)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOutgc-GG6g]

Based on the memoir by celebrity chef Eddie Huang, Fresh Off the Boat is a semi-autobiographical comedy (like Chris Rock’s Everybody Hates Chris) about Huang’s life growing up in the 90’s. From showrunner/writer Nahnatchka Khan (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23), the series continues ABC’s trend of creating funny and diverse family shows. This is the first Asian-American family sitcom since 1994.

Once Upon a Time (8 p.m., ABC)

Last Man on Earth (9 p.m., Fox)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_xNvdptsXY&w=560&h=315]

The Will Forte comedy from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 22 Jump Street) stars Forte as, well, the last man on Earth. “Will he ever find another person alive on the planet? Would hoping that she is a female be asking too much?” asks the show’s official description.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD (9 p.m., ABC)

Dig (USA Network)

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKYh8V0GFUA&w=560&h=315]

Another Homeland-y drama, this time from the producers of Homeland and Heroes’ Tim Kring, Dig stars Jason Isaacs as an FBI agent uncovering conspiracies in Israel. Anne Heche also stars as his boss and sometimes lover. Sure that’ll end well.

Tony-Award winner Sutton Foster stars as a 40 year old trying to make in a world full of twenty-somethings. Foster was incredibly funny and charming on Amy Sherman Paladino’s now-defunct Bunheads, so it’s always nice to see her in stuff.
