Following "Chris" at 8:30 is the new series "Aliens In America" a comedy centered on a loser high schooler whose parents decide the only way he'll be able to make any friends is if they import one. Enter Raja, the Pakistani exchange student. The set-up is kind of groan inducing, but we'll admit we laughed a few times during the pilot, and we appreciate its single camera, laughtrack-free presentation. Also, any show that can get laughs out of the image of a dead clown is on the right track.

The season premieres of "Girlfriends" and "The Game" follow at at 9 and 9:30 p.m.
