UPN (Fridays, 8 p.m. ET)

Once again UPN draws a bead on its target audience of young men with this relentlessly rude, occasionally funny Claymation series about two slackers on what the network hopes will be a long road trip.

I got the show’s drift in the mid-January pilot, when it offered up two—count ’em—dead bunnies as objects of hilarity. But a bit of satiric intelligence glimmers through the crudity of the Feb. 2 “D.C.” episode, in which earnest Gary (“I’m just trying to make a difference”) unintentionally wrecks the career of a crusading senator while randy Mike has an affair with a varicose-veined Supreme Court justice driven wild by a taste of pornography. I laughed a few times, though not without guilt.

Bottom Line: Boyish sense of humor
