Fox’s new romantic comedy “Traffic Light” premieres tonight at 9:30/8:30c. The series, which intercuts the lives of three couples at different stages of their relationships, is getting mixed reviews.  The Hollywood Reporter calls it “transcendent” and “enormously funny,” while The New York Times cautions, “Put that piping hot cup of coffee back down on your desk before you run out of the office to go home and set your DVR.” But it’s everyone’s amazing headline puns which are the true shining lights here.  A sampling of the best below:
