'Scorpion'

CBS Mon., 9 p.m. 

You have to give Scorpion credit for inventing a whole new genre: the "fun-cedural." It's a remarkably accurate shorthand for what makes this such zippy trash. Team Scorpion is a band of misfit-genius hackers – they're like a crime-fighting Big Bang Theory geek pack. It's a genuine hoot: Any show that can unite Katharine McPhee and American Pie's Eddie Kaye Thomas (Fiiiiinch!) has the right to the fun-cedural crown. With its light touch, Scorpion might take off. Or it could face a speedy fun-cellation.
