Musical scores are crucial to a host of TV series, but no other show uses background music as extensively as Criminal Minds . It can make a scary serial killer almost unbearably stomach-turning, or transform a brightly lit police station into midnight at Dracula's castle. The show's cues, which is what TV and film people call the individual sequences that play as scenes unfold, may lack the lyrics and catchy melodies of the songs on Glee , and they may not sound like music to most viewers, but they can help define character and mood as much as anything that appears on the screen.

If you keep your eyes peeled during the Super Bowl, you might spot cast members from Criminal Minds in the stands. But you won't see Thomas Gibson. CBS has awarded the plum postgame spot on Feb. 4 to its series about an elite FBI behavioral analysis unit that hunts serial killers. So, many of the cast will be in Miami for the big game to glad-hand sponsors and be photographed in the seats. But not Gibson, who plays Agent Hotchner, the unit's intense supervisor. "If the game were in California, I'd be there in a heartbeat," says Gibson, 46. "But I have to work Monday morning.

I hate the new CBS show Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior , which premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. But that doesn't mean you'll hate it. It's a spinoff of Criminal Minds , which, many weeks, is a top-10 show. Episodes routinely attract 10 million viewers. It's a big performer in countries around the world and in reruns on A&E. The criminal minds under study are those of the most twisted perps on TV. Also under study: their handiwork, which is frequently horrific beyond anything any normal TV writer would ever think up. Criminal Minds makes CSI seem like a tea party.

CRIMINAL MINDS: SUSPECT BEHAVIOR 10 tonight, Channel 3. HOW MANY TV shows does it take to keep up with the nation's serial killers? One more than we had last week, apparently. Starting tonight, with the premiere of "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and Janeane Garofalo join the search for the kind of criminals who don't often turn up on local police blotters. Twisted, complicated and generally smarter than the average bear, they're the perpetrators Hollywood loves to hate, worthy opponents for actors whose credentials qualify them for something better than playing hide-and-seek with more typical miscreants.

Sorry, ladies, Shemar Moore won't go shirtless. At least not when he plays super-serious FBI sleuth Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds . It's a matter of acting cred. "As soon as I take my shirt off, they're going to say, 'He takes his shirt off because that's the only reason people will watch him,' " Moore explained during a recent visit to Philadelphia. And while he's proud of his six-pack and the rest of the arsenal that made him a GQ model, Moore wants you to know that he's an actor, not a walking sculpture - an actor with ambitions to become a movie star.

'Here comes the nerd squad!" This is how forensic scientist Gil Grissom is greeted as he arrives at a crime scene in the pilot episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in October 2000. Spoken by a couple of macho cavemen cops, the word nerd was meant to be derisory, but Gil wore it as a badge of honor during the nine seasons he was the top nerd on the CBS procedural, a tenure ending in 2009. CSI wasn't unlike most cop shows: Its heroes didn't pack guns and handcuffs, but tweezers and test tubes.

* GRANDFATHERED. 8 tonight, Fox 29. * THE GRINDER. 8:30 tonight, Fox 29. MAYBE IT SEEMS silly to worry about flow, in the age of I'll-catch-it-on-Hulu, but some shows just belong together. Tonight, with the premieres of "Grandfathered" and "The Grinder," Fox brings us an hour of handsome, slightly delusional middle-age men teaching, and maybe learning from, their younger male relatives. In the case of John Stamos' restaurateur character, Jimmy, in "Grandfathered," that younger male is Gerald (Josh Peck, "Drake & Josh")

AS SOON as Tattle saw that President Obama was guesting on Zach Galifianakis ' goofy Funny or Die Web show "Between Two Ferns," it was quite clear the president's critics would have a field day with his appearance, even if many of them would ask the same questions Zach did: When you leave office, will your presidential library be in Hawaii or Kenya? During the recent Winter Olympics, which country were you rooting for? But the funny six-minute bit, which turned into a commercial for HealthCare.gov, seems to have accomplished its goal, getting more young people in Funny or Die's target demo to think about health care.

Barely two minutes in, the first episode of Low Winter Sun serves up a cold-blooded murder, all the more brutal because the killers are cops. As is the victim. AMC's bleak, brutal crime thriller premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. with a 10-episode first season. It has received mixed reviews, with some critics praising its uncompromising vision and others faulting it as dark but not deep. Set in a particularly bleak section of Detroit, the first episode opens in an empty restaurant.
