Happy Inaugural Day. Now back to pop-culture world: there’s a new episode of Fringe on tonight! After far too many weeks, Fox has relented and is offering up what could be a doozy for fans: We meet the sister of Anna Torv’s agent Olivia, and a “formal investigation of the Fringe Division” is promised. I am very psyched for this. I’ll even say a grudging good word for American Idol: If having Idol as its lead-in helps Fringe in the ratings, all–well, much–is forgiven, Simon Cowell.

How about you? Pleased to see Fringe return to the night’s TV schedule?
