January is cold and depressing (unless you’re a Joyhog living in L.A. or South Florida) but it is cozy and delightful if you love television. Have you been watching the new year’s shows? “24” is back, stronger than ever (cross your fingers, it can keep it up). “Damages” opened its second season with another intriguing mystery and new guests stars William Hurt and Timothy Olyphant. “Nip/Tuck” continues to be a crazy/sexy addiction. “Scrubs,” with a new home on ABC, can still tickle your funny bone. “Monk” is a peculiar but welcome old friend. Friday night, things really started cooking with the brilliant season debuts of “Friday Night Lights” and “Battlestar Galactica.” And this week: “Lost” (Wed., ABC), the new Tim Roth series “Lie To Me” (Wed., Fox) and “Burn Notice” (Thurs., USA) air. Pay-cable viewers get “Big Love” (HBO) and “The L Word” (Showtime).
