There Can Be Only One

“King of the Nerds” on TBS

TBS’ reality competition “King of the Nerds” isn’t anything television hasn’t seen before. It’s one of those “Survivor”-meets-“The Real World” shows that tosses a bunch of people into a house, gives them some prize money to fight for, then sits back and watches as they bump one another off in their quest to become the last man or woman standing. The show gets major bonus points, however, for going all the way with its concept.

“Glee” for Straight Dudes

“Wedding Band” on TBS

TBS’ new hour-long comedy is more or less Wedding Crashers and The Wedding Singer crudely sewn onto an episode of “Glee” with those big, Frankenstein-style stitches. Ignore the scars, though, and you might discover an amiably raunchy musical comedy with which to while away a boring Saturday night.

Mixed Drinks

“Sullivan & Son” on TBS

Television has a long history of hanging out in neighborhood bars. Those watering holes have ranged from the cheerful (“Cheers”) to the skeevy (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”). TBS’ newest workplace sitcom, “Sullivan & Son,” plops us down somewhere in the middle.

Been There, Done Chat

“Conan” on TBS

If you’ve been living in a TV-free cave, you may have missed the fact that Conan O’Brien returned to the late-night airwaves on Monday, Nov. 8. A year ago, Conan was the most high-profile casualty of the Late-Night Ratings War: Round 2. When Jay Leno was promoted to NBC’s prime-time lineup (a move even the most casual of TV viewers knew was boneheaded), O’Brien inherited the sweet 10:30 p.m. “Tonight Show” slot. A few months later, when NBC executives realized their grand plan was tanking, Leno was shipped back to “The Tonight Show.” With nowhere to go (his old “Late Night” slot got taken over by Jimmy Fallon), O’Brien was sent packing.
