Summer 2009 is rapidly drawing to a close, and it’s okay to admit we’re all a little depressed. But there’s hope….The TV gods know the suffering that comes from this seasonal ending and, in their infinite benevolence, bestow on us every fall some measure of relief: new scripted programming! One of the better lineups, NBC’s slate of Thursday sitcoms, returns this week with new episodes of Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and newcomer Community. Check here Friday morning for our recaps!

What’s on YOUR Must List this week? List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. And be sure to explain WHY you’ve made your selection, too — we love to hear your thoughts! Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, Sept. 17 at noon ET.
