Tonight is the series premiere of NYC 22 on CBS at 10/9c. The show follows six diverse NYPD rookies as they patrol the gritty streets of upper Manhattan. With unique backgrounds, personalities and reasons for being on the force, the new cops will make their share of rookie mistakes while they figure out how to relate to their boss, each other and the people they swore to protect. The series stars Terry Kinney (Oz), Adam Goldberg (The Unusuals), Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands (Generation Kill), Judy Marte, Harold “House” Moore, Tom Reed, and Felix Solis.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Girls on HBO at 10:30/9:30c. Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna are trying to figure life out. They’ve been living in New York for a couple of years, but they’re still not sure what they want – from boys, from each other, from themselves. And things aren’t getting any clearer. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the show takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s. Dunham, Judd Apatow, and Jenni Konner executive produce the show. In addition to Dunham, the cast includes Jemima Kirke, Allison Williams (American Dreams), Zosia Mamet (Mad Men) and Adam Driver (You Don’t Know Jack). Recurring guest stars include Chris Abbott Alex Karpovsky.
