Cooking With Gas

“At Home With Amy Sedaris” on truTV

Occasionally absurdist, but hilariously self-aware, “At Home With Amy Sedaris” is the exact sort of skewering Food Network and HGTV are begging for these days.

App for Destruction

“Wisdom of the Crowd” on CBS

Before it even aired, trailers for “Wisdom of the Crowd” put it in the running for the dumbest show of the fall. Since then, airings of the actual show have soundly confirmed the suspicion.
