Tonight's TV Hot List: Sunday, Jan. 10, 2010


9/8c NBC

Chuck's got luck, and so do fans of this spirited, spyjinks-laded dramedy, which finally returns with new episodes after a nearly nine-month layoff. Season 3 opens with a two-hour outing, and it appears Chuck has gone from zero to hero, dud to stud, cold to cool. Now possessing new, upgraded Intersect abilities, he trains to be a master spy — but he flunks spy school and his relationship with Sarah shatters. Later, while trying to mend his broken relationship with Sarah, Chuck takes on a mission when Sarah's gal pal and her fiancĂ© (Vinnie Jones) arrive. Another new episode airs tomorrow night at 8/7c. — Dean Maurer

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

9/8c Syfy

If Battlestar Galactica's disappearance from the prime-time grid has left a void in your life and you're aching for a people-vs.-machines fix, you won't want to miss this reexamination of the saga directed by Adama (Edward James Olmos) himself, which looks at the story from the often-conflicted view of the Cylon skin-jobs. Fans, here's a chance to see how things could have turned out very differently. — Michael Chant
