Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:
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+
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.
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.
SAVING MILLY (CBS) The story of pundit Mort Kondracke and his wife, Milly, who has Parkinson's disease.
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.
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.
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.
