    NBC, 9:00PM ET >> Description

    Family patriarch Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) may be dead, but the time-jumping format of this blockbuster hit, which opens Season 3 tonight, means fans will continue to see Jack -- although Ventimiglia promises viewers they definitely won't see what's coming for his character. The show also reportedly will be including more flash-forwards to moments in the future, as in a Season 2 scene between Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and an adult Tess, his daughter.

    CBS, 9:00PM ET >> Description

    CBS certainly knows how to do crime procedurals, as does "Law & Order" mentor Dick Wolf, so this new teaming seems like a match made in series heaven.

Interestingly, this was conceived as an "L&O" spinoff series, but NBC passed on it. Sela Ward joins the show in Episode 2.
