Tonight's Best TV
A Daily Guide to Notable Shows
The perennially undervalued animated sitcom returns with an episode that finds the younger members of the Belcher clan exchanging the stench of fried meat for the smell of greasepaint. When the high school decides to stage a musical version of Working Girl (sample lyric: ''The only thing bigger than my hair/Is my heart!''), Louise persuades Gene to put on a ''guerrilla-slash-protest'' production of his self-penned Die Hard: The Musical (sample lyric: ''Nakatomi-Nakatomi- Nakatomi-Nakatomi-Nakatomi...''). As usual, the jokes come fast and land hard, and the musical numbers are deliberately, deliriously awful. Then again, it could be argued that the climactic sequence, in which the two shows are combined, is actually an improvement over many tunes from some of the big-screen-to- Broadway transplants of the past few years.

Former SNL writer John Mulaney's sitcom is neither the new Seinfeld NBC hoped it would be when they greenlit the original pilot nor the disastrous nonstarter a lot of people assumed it was after NBC passed. Even in the rough world of comedy debuts, the premiere is weak, mostly because it has to unpack its too-busy premise: Mulaney plays a struggling stand-up with a pair of roommates (Seaton Smith and Nasim Pedrad) and a new job scribbling jokes for game-show host Lou Cannon (Martin Short). But by its third episode, the show is confident enough to make you think it might, as Seinfeld did, survive its rocky start. C+
