Watch the first trailer of ABC's 'Killer Women' and its 'badass' lead

Tricia Helfer plays a tough Texas Ranger on this midseason show
ABC has a Texas Ranger procedural on the docket for midseason, "Killer Women." As this feisty trailer suggests, Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer) is committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served, but she's not afraid to break the rules. Or play tough. Or act like the boys, though some of the boys don't respect her. Sigh. The show is also produced by Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family").

If you're watching the NatGeo show "Polygamy, USA" (Tues. at 9:00 p.m.), you may have mixed feelings about what you're seeing as the show follows a community of fundamentalist Mormons practicing the unconventional lifestyle. The network recently conducted a survey to determine how people really feel about polygamy. The answer is, simply put, not that great.

It's the end of an era. Though we'd all heard the rumors weeks ago, Barbara Walters has officially announced she's retiring next year (and savvily saved that information until toda to steal the thunder during TV upfronts). "I'm perfectly healthy, this is my decision, I've been thinking about it for a long time," she said on "The View," before admitting, "There will special occasions and I will come back... I'm not dead yet."

The Raymond Burr classic gets a modern remake

In the ongoing quest to reinvent the police procedural, NBC has revamped the 1967-75 hit "Ironside." The original starred Raymond Burr as a San Francisco cop paralyzed by a sniper's bullet and confined to a wheelchair, thus forced to solve crimes using his wits. This time around, the action moves to New York City and Blair Underwood takes the chair.

Watch the first trailer from NBC's retro take on 'Dracula' with Rhys Meyers

"The Tudors" star joins the producers of "Downton Abbey"

It's hard to argue that NBC's new series "Dracula" doesn't come with a pedigree. Starring "The Tudors" star and Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers, the show is also has the producers of "Downton Abbey" behind the scenes. They may have been able to reuse a few of the costumes from that show, too.

Watch a sharp, funny trailer from NBC's 'Michael J. Fox Show'

Fox isn't afraid to make witty fun of his Parkinson's

The trailer for "The Michael J. Fox Show" suggests this just may be the perfect starring vehicle for the sharp-witted "Family Ties" and "Back to the Future" star. Just as he did on "The Good Wife," Fox isn't shying away from mentioning (and in this case, making great fun of) the Parkinson's that at one point sent him into early retirement. The tone of this single camera sitcom appears to be razor sharp -- and more than happy to make fun of the treacly poignancy that often gets heaped upon Fox.

'Revenge' review: Was the 'Truth' twisty enough for you?

One character dies, another confesses, and that's just some of it

Since I didn't put any actual money on who I thought might be the unlucky core cast member killed off this season, I can't say I was jumping up and down with joy when… oh, wait. Spoiler alert. I'll just leave the rest of this sentence for the next page for all of you DVR viewers who like to let your TV episodes age like fine wine or cheese or laundry.

'Once Upon A Time' recap: 'And Straight on 'Til Morning' sets a new course

The season finale gives us more insight into Hook

Although if I had to pick an ABC show to get a two-hour season finale tonight I would have picked "Once Upon A Time" over "Revenge" (though I'll admit I haven't seen the "Revenge" finale yet, so that's admittedly unfair), I have to say the possible destruction of Storybrooke and the attendant twists created some solid cliffhangers. Some are mentioned below. So, you know, spoiler alert.
