And now from the "been-there, done-that" department: A couple of scrawny, virginal teens with no parental supervision dream of becoming "cooler than hell" and, of course, getting laid. That's the concept behind FX's new animated sitcom "Unsupervised" ( 9:30 p.m. Thursday, FX; 1.5 stars ). It should sound familiar, what with "Beavis and Butt-head" back on MTV and "Napoleon Dynamite" recently launching on Fox, not to mention just about a million movies on the subject. If "Unsupervised" creators Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and...

Dogs are supposedly man's best friends--unless the dog's name is Wilfred. And he is really a man in a dog costume. And he likes to mess with you. The latest teaser for Season 2 of FX's comedy "Wilfred" shows Ryan (Elijah Wood) getting advice from both a devilish and angelic version of his canine cohort Wilfred (Jason Gann).

I wasn't familiar with Jim Jeffries' standup before popping in my screener of his new comedy, "Legit" ( 9:30 p.m. Thursday, FX; 3.5 star out of 4 ). Now I want to check it out. "Legit" is legitimately and simultaneously raunchy, sweet and funny. Aussie standup comic Jim (played by Aussie comic Jeffries, who created and writes the show) is struggling to make it in L.A. while carving out time for sex with strangers, phone conversations with his mom back in Australia and convincing his gameless roomie, Steve (Chicago's Dan Bakkedahl)
