A&E (Sun., Sept. 22, 8 P.M. ET)


After a four-year hiatus, the diverting cable series based on the British mystery novels of Jonathan Gash returns. Ian McShane again stars as Lovejoy, the sharpie antiques dealer and forgery expert from East Anglia. His leery aides are played by Chris Jury and Dudley Sutton.

The proceedings are dry by American standards (in other words, not enough car chases), but McShane, England's answer to James Farentino, lends them a sly spark. After this enjoyable two-hour premiere, which features McShane's old Dallas partner, Linda Gray, the show moves to Mondays at 10 P.M. ET.
