One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Jeremiah October is the cruelest month, especially for those of us who watch way too much television. This month is when the new Fall season begins, except for Enterprise, which began last month. The best show is almost certainly Jeremiah, by J. Michael Straczynski. The most unknown quantity is Tarzan. If you want to watch both Angel and Enterprise, the latter is rebroadcast on Saturday.
