FOX (Sundays, 9:30 p.m. ET)


You can’t go home again, and yet stupid people insist on doing it anyway. Nate Stahlings (Josh Dean), just done with college, moves back to a small town and in with his folks (Loretta Fox and Allan Havey). Having reinserted himself into an emotional vacuum—the parents don’t seem pleased at his return—Nate is left gasping for air. He works at an Aussie-themed restaurant, and his best friend is a party-loving loser from high school named Mark Dove. Dove, big, dumb and happy, is well played by Dave Sheridan. He’s like a side of beef that keeps slamming into the lesser cuts in the butcher’s locker. FYI: The show, which premieres March 1 and then returns March 12, is partly improvised, a stunt used to richer effect on ABC’s upcoming Sons & Daughters.
