"The Event" (NBC, 9 p.m.), Monday, Sept. 20

Jason Ritter is a Regular Guy caught up in a fractured flashback that points toward oncoming heavy strangeness. Blair Underwood is the president of the United States, and Laura Innes a mysterious prisoner whose mystery might be guessed -- indeed, I am guessing -- from the fact that creator Nick Wauters also has the sci-fi "The 4400" on his IMDB page.
