A GIFTED MAN

Patrick Wilson plays a talented (albeit shallow) surgeon given a wake-up call when visions of his dead wife (Jennifer Ehle) urge him to run her free clinic. Gimmicky premise, terrific execution. Premieres Sept. 23 on CBS

REVENGE

As a vengeful young woman who wreaks havoc on the Hamptons, Emily VanCamp is finally given a juicy headlining role. There hasn't been a prime-time soap this fun in ages. Premieres Sept. 21 on ABC

THE X FACTOR

So this is why Simon Cowell fled Idol. He teams up with Paula Abdul for a U.S. reboot of his wildly popular talent show. If he succeeds? What a comeback. If he fails? Even more watchable. Premieres Sept. 21 on Fox

PERSON OF INTEREST

Big-screen mainstay Jim Caviezel teams up with Lost villain Michael Emerson in a crime series that casts its eye on this country's lack of privacy. Premieres Sept. 22 on CBS

UP ALL NIGHT

Parents who begrudgingly love their kid? Check. Will Arnett and Christina Applegate try to maintain that precious work/life balance, and manage to elevate typical sitcom fare. Premieres Sept. 14 on NBC
