Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:

9:30-10PM
KELSEY GRAMMER PRESENTS: THE SKETCH SHOW
(Fox, TV-PG-D) Thank God I've lived long enough to write this: Kelsey Grammer knows more about being a black woman than he does about sketch comedy.

The "Frasier" star and executive producer of UPN's "Girlfriends" offers this homage to "Laugh-in" and "Sonny and Cher," where the jokes are more punny than funny. (Two men dressed in armor tell a hotel clerk, "We'd like a room for two knights, please.") A sign-language gag even seems lifted from "Airplane! II."

The problem being, of course, that it was all funnier the first time.

EW Grade: D+

8:30-9PM
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
(Fox, TV-PG-DL) Lindsay, like the other Bluths, keeps it in the family. Y'know, her heart belongs to Daddy. We're talking freaky father fetish, people! Sheesh, it's like you're not twisted at all.

9-10PM
SERIES DEBUT: JAKE IN PROGRESS
(ABC) In the first of this pair of episodes, John Stamos plays a publicist on a blind date with his boss' sister: a chick he forgot he already slept with. Honestly, I don't know whom that reflects worse on.

9-11PM
SAVING MILLY
(CBS) The story of pundit Mort Kondracke and his wife, Milly, who has Parkinson's disease.

10-10:59PM
THE L WORD
(Showtime, TV-MA) Shane and Jenny need a new roommate. And we all know that as far as Jenny's concerned, any gender'll do.

10-11PM
CROSSING JORDAN
(NBC, TV-14) It looks like a case for "Medical Investigation" when suspicious deaths at the airport appear to be caused by a virus. But before we can imagine the lovechild of Jill Hennessy and Neal McDonough, we learn it's just drugs.

10-11PM
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC'S MOST DANGEROUS MOMENTS
(National Geographic Channel, TV-G) Strange. Standing under that falling glacier seemed like such a good idea at the time.
