What show has made the biggest creative comeback this season? — Jenn
After a stale debut, NBC's Father of the Pride (now on hiatus) became reliable for random weird laughs. Credit must also go to ABC's Less Than Perfect, which used to try so hard it made my TV sweat. Now in its third season, Perfect's got a nice rhythm, thanks to Sara Rue's confident comedic notes, Andy Dick's dialed-down delivery, and Patrick Warburton, who puts a spring in any show.
