Fans of comic books and the summer movies they inspire should enjoy the new series "Jake 2.0" (8 p.m., UPN). Jake Foley (Christopher Gorham) becomes a cyber-superhero after a laboratory explosion at the National Security Administration, where he toils amid secretive and glamorous spies as a lowly tech-support guy. In the explosion, he's "infected" with a hybrid organic computer chip that gives him remarkable strength, enhanced senses and an ability to meld with technology. But the bad guys who blew up the lab are now on to Jake, and want to steal the germs and gizmos that transformed him. This inspires Jake's starchy NSA bosses to promote him to a superagent, and sets up the premise for the show.
