The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC) gets back to business with the season opener, in which Bartlet makes his reelection intentions public. On the season premiere of Felicity (9 p.m., WB), senior year proves to be a rude awakening for our girl, who has to decide what she's going to be when she grows up. Drew juggles two wives on The Drew Carey Show (9 p.m., ABC). In case you fell asleep waiting for it to start Sunday, Curb Your Enthusiasm (9 p.m., HBO) gets another airing.
