AIR DATE MONDAY 1/18

Meet Lux (Britt Robertson), a sarcastic foster teen who tracks down her shocked birth parents (Kristoffer Polaha and Shiri Appleby) and ends up bonding with them. This new Juno-like drama tries to be heart-tugging, but it’s woefully manipulative (poor Lux has a health condition too) and inane (her dad gets drunk the day a social worker visits). Grow up, everybody! (CW, 9 P.M.)
