Suburgatory (ABC) Series Debut: Stupid name, mostly funny show: A New York City single dad and teen daughter (Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy) move to the suburbs and discover that everyone and everything there is shiny and fake—I know, mindblower. ---What Sisto (last seen on Law & Order: Original Flavor) lacks in comedy chops, costar Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) more than makes up for in an over-the-top-of-the-top performance as a minivan mom from Toddlers & Tiaras hell. Plus, Suburgatory was created by writers who’ve worked on Parks & Recreation and Hung—sold!
Happy Endings (ABC) Season Premiere: The only single-pals comedy to survive the spring is back! In the Season 2 opener, Penny (Casey Wilson) buys a condo, and we all know there’s nothing funnier than a condo. A little real-estate humor there …
The X Factor (Fox) The karaoke trainwreck rolls on into New York and … New Jersey. I only mention The X Factor because I’ll be on Fox 13’s Good Day Utah again tomorrow morning around 8, providing expert(?) commentary about tonight’s auditions. Just go with it.
