ANGSTY 30-SOMETHING SITCOM

SKIP: Fox's Unhitched, courtesy of the Farrelly brothers, who—having desecrated The Heartbreak Kid with a disfiguring remake—here perpetrate orangutan-on-man love. In the opening episode.

STICK WITH ABC's Samantha Who?, starring an irresistibly quirky Christina Applegate as an amnesiac who learns that she was a major bitch and decides to reform her life. Blessedly chimp-free.

LAWYER SHOW (WITH A TWIST!)

SKIP: Fox's latest, Canterbury's Law, with Julianna Margulies as hard-assed, ethically challenged lawyer dame — with her own missing child!; ABC's Eli Stone, featuring Jonny Lee Miller as hard-assed, ethically challenged lawyer — who thinks he's a spiritual prophet!

STICK WITH ABC's Dirty Sexy Money for the gloss, glam, and Peter Krause-ness of it all, as he tries to hunt down his father's murderer.
