Zero stars (out of four) The examination of class in “Answers to Nothing” consists of Ryan (Dane Cook) briefly looking at a homeless person. The examination of race boils down to an African-American woman (Kali Hawk), who says she hates black people, deciding to look on the bright side. As for the discussion of infidelity, there isn't one. Ryan simply cheats on his wife Kate (Elizabeth Mitchell) - he's so sleazy he tells the romantic story of his grandparents' love while receiving oral sex from his mistress Tara (Aja Volkman)

"Ben & Kate" ( 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Fox; 3 stars out of 4 ) will live or die by how much viewers love, or hate, Nat Faxon's exuberant portrayal of Ben Fox. Faxon (Oscar-winning screenwriter, with "Community" star Jim Rash, of "The Descendants") spins like a top as Ben, the man-boy of a brother to more mature, but younger Kate (Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith), who has put her love life on hold while raising her 5-year-old daughter Maddie (Maggie Jones from "We Bought a Zoo")

The odds of predicting a perfect March Madness bracket (excluding the play-in games, because screw the play-in games) is approximately 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808. Websites now routinely offer $1 million to anyone who pulls off that perfecto, knowing full well there are better odds that you - yes, you - could ever date Kate Upton. The odds of picking a perfect bracket from this point on, however, are a totally doable 1 in 32,768 - approximately the odds of you sleeping with Ke$ha.

How's this for a little genre cross-pollinating: Katee Sackhoff of "Battlestar Galactica" fame is guest-voicing a character in the latest episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars. " Sackhoff voices the armored warrior Bo-Katan in "A Friend In Need," premiering at 7 p.m. Jan. 13 on Cartoon Network. "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau will voice the warlord Pre Vizsla. They are part of the Death Watch, which has been absent since their attempt to take over Mandalore in Season 2. Now they're stronger and far more dangerous.

In the political drama "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," Changez (Riz Ahmed) transitions from a financial hotshot in 2001 New York to a man suspected of being a terrorist in 2011 Lahore, Pakistan. Kate Hudson plays Erica, an artist who offers Changez a (romantic) respite from an America that continually closes in around him. On the surface, Hudson ("Bride Wars"), 34, and actor/rapper Ahmed ("Four Lions"), 30, might not seem to have much in common. Yet part of the point of "Fundamentalist" is the importance of looking beyond surface appearances.

The world often feels like a hate-filled and contentious place to call home. Abroad, we see terrorist attacks, riots, vitriolic reactions to vitriolic speech, murder in reaction to bigotry while at home we are in the midst of a bitter election season fueled by an orgy of money and cross-talking spite. Amidst all this contempt and disagreement, can we, at the very least, all get together and as one people, one nation of humanity, one unbroken chain of human voices, agree that Kate Middleton just looks fantastic topless?
