The Ex List'The Ex List'

Talk about calling a do over! Thirtysomething single Bella ('Grey's Anatomy's' Elizabeth Reaser) visits a psychic who tells her she has just one year to find her true love, or she's likely to end up alone.

As if that wasn't enough to send her biological clock ticking, ticking, ticking, Bella's also told that she's already met -- and dated -- the man of her dreams, meaning she's gotta pull out the titular list of exes to reconnect and see which one was The One who got away.

'Numb3rs'

'Sanctuary'
(9PM ET, Sci Fi) series premiere
Hellooooo, green screen!

'Wife Swap'
(8PM ET, ABC) 5th season premiere

(8PM ET, MNTV)
The weekly wrasslin' event moves to MyNetwork TV with a special 'Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion' bout that pits WWE champ Triple H against Raw's Chris Jericho and ECW's Matt Hardy. Matt Hardy? Whatever happened to cool wrestler names like Sgt. Slaughter and Junkyard Dog?
