One of the most anticipated shows of the new season has to be Fox Television’s 24, the real-time portrayal of the music industry as it ramps up to sell its songs online. With each episode marking one actual year in the story, viewers can watch record company execs hack, burn and litigate their way through Napster, Aimster and as the major labels representing Sons Of The Desert, Tori Amos and Freedy Johnston, work to bring a safe and secure vending system to the Web. The laughs are contagious as the Recording Industry Association of America’s Hilary Rosen, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, becomes hopelessly bogged down in minutia as she negotiates third-party music licenses. Starring Jerry Seinfeld as AOL Time Warner’s Steve Case and featuring Dennis Hopper as Kramer. Tuesdays, 9:00 p.m.

Described as Providence meets Quincy meets Cops!, Crossing Lizzie is the story of what happens when a high-powered New York publicist moves back to her small town roots on Long Island, and proceeds to back over the local residents with her SUV. In the first episode, Nikka Costa guests as the publicist’s best friend, Rhoda, while Henry Rollins plays Ted Baxter. Mondays, 10:00 p.m.

Before there was Clear Channel Entertainment, before there was SFX, the country was made up of small independent promoters presenting shows by Femi Kuti and Jane’s Addiction. Return with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear as UPN presents Enterprise, the story of a family of promoters trying to tame the final frontier by staging concerts featuring 311, California Guitar Trio and Incubus. In the premier episode, Granny whips up a batch of her special “spring tonic” for the weekend rave just as Jed asks Mr. Drysdale to underwrite Jethro’s big U2 concert. Britney Spears co-stars as Elly May and Joan Jett plays Miss Jane. Wednesdays, 8:00 p.m.

Yes, it looks like another great television season is almost upon us. In fact, we’re sure you’ll agree that this fall represents the best season the networks have ever offered.

Which is all the more reason to turn off the boob tube and see a concert. Race you to Ticketmaster.
