One of last season's best new shows returns with a pair of episodes to kick off Season 2. New Girl airs at both 7 and 8 p.m. on Fox/Ch. 13.

I've seen the first episode, and it's hilarious. The best thing about "New Girl" is that it quickly became about more than just the "Girl" - the cast surrounding Zooey Deschanel is great.

And you can be sure I'll be watching the 8 p.m. episode that I haven't seen yet.

Welcome to Brickleberry (11:30 p.m., Comedy Central): This new animated show about a park ranger is executive produced by Daniel Tosh, so you know it's going to be offensive. And it's incredibly offensive and vulgar, offending anyone and everyone. Unfortunately, it's also not particularly funny. And, before long, all the offensiveness just becomes a big bore.
