Of course, the real excitement this week is the 10th season premiere of This Old House (on PBS, Thursday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m.). This year, Bob and Norm help folks named Mary-Van and Jim turn their two-family home into a quaint bed-and-breakfast. Can't wait. Meanwhile, the week brings us some TV movies and a new Masterpiece Theatre miniseries. Shrug. And there's also a brand-new sitcom that could be a contender for hit of the year and best of the season. If you can stand all the excitement of dry walling and comedy, then turn the pages until you see the one grade A of the week.
