TORONTO (September 17, 2012) Got a case of the Mondays? This fall on Citytv, that’s no longer a bad thing. Revolution-izing Monday nights, Citytv  kicks off its hotly anticipated fall prime-time season tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT with buzz-worthy dystopian drama Revolution, from industry heavyweights JJ Abrams (Person of Interest), Jon Favreau (Iron Man) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural). The star-studded schedule continues next Monday, Sept. 24, with the premiere of new comedy series Partners, from the Emmy® Award-winning creators of Will and Grace, David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. These two critically acclaimed programs join the #1 returning Citytv series of last season,*2 Broke Girls, and perennial favourite, scotch-soaked bro-coded comedy How I Met Your Mother.
 
With a new series return rate of 67 per cent – more than any other Canadian network – Citytv builds on its successful fall 2011 season by adding a refreshed prime-time programming block to its slate of proven hits on Mondays.

NEW:

Partners – Monday Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings)
“Pilot” **Series Premiere**
Partners is a comedy based on the lives of David Kohan and Max Mutchnick (Will & Grace), about two life-long best friends and business partners and their “bromance.” Joe (David Krumholtz, Numb3rs) is an accomplished architect who leads with his head and not his heart. That’s in stark contrast to his gay co-worker, Louis (Michael Urie, Ugly Betty), who is spontaneous, emotional and prone to exaggeration. Both have found joy in their love lives: Joe is dating Ali (Sophia Bush, One Tree Hill), a sophisticated jewellery designer, while Louis is dating Wyatt (Brandon Routh, Superman Returns), a vegan nurse. In the series premiere, Joe must decide whether or not to ask Ali to marry him, but Louis and his good intentions threaten to get in the way of his best friend’s happiness.

Revolution – Tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings)
“Pilot”
**Series Premiere**
Set in a post-apocalyptic society,
Revolution follows a family’s struggle to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology has mysteriously blacked out forever. In the series premiere, Charlie (Canadian Tracy Spiridakos, Being Human) and a group of survivors set out to seek help from Charlie’s estranged uncle Miles (Billy Burke, The Twilight Saga) after her brother Danny (Graham Rogers, Memphis Beat) is kidnapped by the militia. The cast also includes Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) as Rachel Matheson, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Captain Tom Neville and JD Pardo (The Burning Pain) as Nate.

RETURNING:

How I Met Your Mother – Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings)
“Farhampton”
Last season, it was shockingly revealed that Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) would end up marrying ex-girlfriend Robin (Cobie Smulders) on his future wedding day. In the Season 8 premiere, Robin’s anxiety before she walks down the aisle to marry Barney prompts Ted (Josh Radnor) to recount the time he insisted on leaving Victoria’s (Ashley Williams) jilted fiancé a note before they drove off into the sunset together.

2 Broke Girls– Monday, Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/ PT(check local listings) 
“And The Hidden Stash”
The freshman season of the strong female comedy left off with the girls visiting domestic guru extraordinaire Martha Stewart at a glamorous fashion gala the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In a not so glamorous turn of events, Season 2 kicks off with Max (Kat Dennings) joining Caroline (Beth Behrs) on a visit to her father, Martin Channing (guest star Steven Weber,
Wings), at a white-collar prison.
