My drooling is justified.

I fell in lust love with “Justified” after the first episode.

It started with Timothy Olyphant as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Since then I have rented all seven seasons of “The Shield” — one of the top 10 shows of all time — and I’m now powerfully obsessed with Walton Goggins, who plays Raylan’s childhood buddy Boyd Crowder.

So, yeah. I’m psyched for “Justified” Season 2 to begin on Wednesday, February 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.

AOL’s TV Squad has joined me in lamenting the lack of awards love given to the series: “Despite being overlooked in the TV categories at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, the show’s first season was critically lauded. Hopefully the award-giving powers that be take notice this time around.”

True dat!

Bald: Good for Terry O'Quinn. Not so much Timothy Olyphant.

FX knows what is has. It has Timothy Olyphant.

It is going to milk him like the cash cow he is. It is going to make me happy.

If you’ll recall, Mr. Olyfantastic had a prominent role in the second season of “Damages” on FX.

Last Tuesday his new show, “Justified,” premiered on FX to rave reviews.

It is already one of my favorite shows.

Tonight, from 10 to 11 p.m., we get to watch episode two, “Riverbrook.”

Details: “Raylan tracks an escaped prisoner desperate to reunite with his former wife and a hidden fortune.”

Drool.

But before that episode airs, we get to watch Oly from 8 to 10 p.m. in the 2007 film “Hitman”:

“An assassin’s growing attachment to a traumatized young woman poses a threat to his life, as great as that of the Interpol and Russian agents on his trail. Based on the videogame franchise. Stars Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Olga Kurylenko, Robert Knepper, Ulrich Thomsen.”

I’ve never seen “Hitman” and it looks like an epic turd.

Worse: Oly is bald in it and I enjoy his pretty hair.

But we should be loyal … to “Lost” at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Seriously, though. Even if you watch “Lost” at 9 or “American Idol” from 8 to 10 (Shame on you! Stop watching until Alex Lambert comes back), remember to head back to FX for “Justified.”

I can almost guarantee you will love it.
