Sarah Silverman, Devastatingly Cute and Vice Versanew

In the first two second season episodes, Silverman's character takes a joyful trip down memory lane reliving her past abortions, sympathizes with a guy who had to give up crack and rigorously defends her right to lick a dog's anus. It's sick, stupid, brilliant and the bravest sitcom on TV.

'Lil' Bush' Delivers the Oaf of Officenew

Comedy Central has taken South Park by its dirty collar, thrown it into a particle collider along with Jon Stewart's The Daily Show, and come up with Lil' Bush: Resident of the United States, a sometimes hilarious, often sick-in-the-head fever dream about contemporary politics.

'Smallville' Grows Upnew

In the aftermath of Virginia Tech, it's hard to watch the CW's Smallville in the same way.

Irish Ire in a Bizarro NYCnew

NBC's The Black Donnellys is not so much the sprawling epic of an Irish-American family's rise to power in organized crime, as it is a game of spot the rip-off.
