WEEKEND TV : Sitcoms Get Season Premieres

The new season rolls on.

Tonight, fans of NBC’s popular sitcoms finally get a respite from reruns as “The Golden Girls” at 8 p.m. and “Empty Nest” at 9 p.m. present their season premieres in their new time slots. A new sitcom called “The Torkelsons” premieres in between at 8:30 (4)(36)(39).

Sunday, ABC presents the season openers of “Life Goes On” at 7 p.m., “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at 8 and “America’s Funniest People” at 8:30 p.m. (7)(3)(10)(42). The producers of “Funniest Home Videos” have promised to add about 20% more clips to each show this season while cutting back on host Bob Saget’s jokes.

Fox (6)(11) counters at 8 p.m. Sunday with the season’s first new episode of “In Living Color” that will resolve whether Homey the Clown, played by Damon Wayans, actually sold out to “the man.”
