TV: Tonight's Best TV

Friday, May 30th
Streaming | Season Premiere

Derek (Netflix)

''The success of Ricky Gervais' tales of a simpleton working at an old folks' home depends on an impeccable balance in tone; without it, the misty-eyed optimism is just empty schmaltz.''

Tonight's Best TV
10:00 p.m.

Crossbones (NBC)

''Shiver me timbers, this show is a stinker! John Malkovich plays the pirate Blackbeard, who we're told is ruthless?but the Oscar-nominated actor really just wanders about in puffy blouses and speaks with a community-theater-bad English accent.''

8:00 p.m.

Betty White's Off Their Rockers (Lifetime)

''If you think being older is boring, you haven't met Betty White: The Golden Girls star hosts this show where she and her elderly pals play pranks on younger folks.''

9:00 p.m.

Say Yes to the Dress (TLC)

''And say yes to this show.''
