What’s On This Week

SUNDAY, SEPT. 30

NEW SEASON!

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES

9 P.M. | ABC

Last season ended with a terrific cliffhanger—or rope-dangler. Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) hanged herself after being rejected by Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira). Did she live? The first episode of season 4 answers that question and introduces Dana Delany. She’s Katherine Mayfair, a former neighbor who returns to Wisteria Lane full of memories and, strangely, accompanied by a daughter who remembers nothing and isn’t allowed in the attic: the usual enjoyable hint of awful Gothic doings.

NEW SEASON!

BROTHERS & SISTERS

10 P.M. | ABC

Fresh off her censor-bleeped win as best actress at the Emmys, Sally Field stars as matriarch to a big, argumentative family.

NEW SEASON!

BROTHERHOOD

10 P.M.| SHOWTIME

Mob enforcer Michael Caffee (Jason Isaacs) wants back in on the action, but his brain trauma from season 1 makes him a poor choice to pack a pistol.

NEW SEASON!

DEXTER

9 P.M. | SHOWTIME

Serial killer Dexter Morgan’s new crisis is due to the fact, shall we say, that he’s a man of many parts—buried parts. Keith Carradine turns up, dry as a bone, as an FBI investigator. Not to be missed.
