This TV season brings a new challenge to couch jockeys: distinguishing the three series with titles that end in and Again. Here's a channel guide--plus a helpful mnemonic--to relieve the again-y.

NOW AND AGAIN (CBS): John Goodman's brain gets a new life in a bioengineered body (NAA: New, Advanced Anthropoid)

ONCE AND AGAIN (ABC): Two fortysomething divorces and their love lives (OAA: Oy, Another Angst-fest)

TIME AND AGAIN (MSNBC): Cobbled-together documentaries from archival NBC News footage (TAA: That's All? Archives?)
