Good morning, everyone!

This is Garrett Godwin -- here to tell you What`s On Tonight!

Today is not only Labor Day, but it is also a night of premieres:

On FOX tonight at 8pm is the two-hour return of Prison Break.  The series` fourth season begins with Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) going after Gretchen (Jodi O`Lyn Keefe) and Whistler to avenge his love Sara-- but, as we know, Sara is alive.  How and when that happened, we`re going to have to watch and see.  This season finds Michael and big brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) caught by the FBI, and is given two choices: Help bring down the ruthless Company, or go back to jail.  Choosing the former, our heroes must enlist their allies-- and their enemies-- in this mission.  Can everyone learn to get along and work together without killing each other?  Like I said, watch and see.

At 9pm on the CW is the sixth-season opener of One Tree Hill, in which we finally discover to whom Lucas proposed via cell phone from the airport last May-- Lindsay, Peyton, or Brooke?  If you thought that Lindsay was out, then think again.  New Law & Order: Special Victims Unit aka Michaela McManus will return to OTH for more than one episode this season.  Who will Lucas pick?  Like I said, watch and see.

Then, at 10pm on TNT, is the newest drama from Emmy-winning creator Steven Bochco, the man behind Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue-- Raising the Bar.  Featuring Blue alum Mark-Paul Gosselaar, the series follows young law school graduates who are also friends, working on opposite sides in the imperfect justice system as either public defenders or prosecutors.

That`s What`s On Tonight!  Thanks for joining me.  And, don`t forget to check out Judyth Piazza on The American Perspective, along with Del Marbrook on Hot Copy-- right here at the SOP.

I`m Garrett Godwin, and I have to Go Now once again, so have a good Labor Day, and I`ll see you later.
