Catching up in TV LAND

ANDY BARKER, PI: After the second episode of this NBC sitcom, I lost interest (as did the rest of the U.S., it seems: BARKER has been bandished to Saturday night)

THE RICHES: I made it to the first ten minutes of Episode 3 before I realized how much I hated this new F/X network show. Sorry, Minnie!

TOP DESIGN: I LOVE LOVE LOVE Project Runway and I HATE HATE HATE Top Chef. TOP DESIGN fell somewhere in between. I completed this show from beginning to end and it was just okay. I hear Cycle 4 of RUNWAY is in the works, WHEW! I have SHEAR GENIUS on stand-by. BRAVO, Bravo!

ACCEPTABLE TV: Check this one out if you are into the whole YouTube craze. Basically the show is 5 episodes of short tv skits. Viewers then vote on their favorites. The two highest ranking shows return for Episode 2 the following week. It's pointless, but addictive. From the mind of Jack Black, if that helps.

CLATTERFORD: I have been slowly getting more into this BBC America comedy from the terrific Jennifer Saunders. Not for everyone's tastes, but if you like British humour, you just might like Clatterford.
