    He huffs, he puffs, he snorts yards of blow up his nose. He’s Richie Finestra, flailing founder of an imploding record company, American Century, and he’s exactly what TV doesn’t need right now — one more anguished, toxic, middle-aged male anti-hero raging against the dying light of his powers. Played by Bobby Cannavale with a ferociousness that sucks you in even as it wears you down, Richie is the black hole center of HBO's Vinyl, a drama set in ‘70s New York at the dawn of punk and hip-hop, produced by the super-group of Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), Rich Cohen and Mick Jagger. It’s a sometimes thrilling period piece dulled by new century Bleak TV blah blah blah.

    With thanks to "sweet baby Jesus" for allowing her to premiere during a "deranged" election season, veteran Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee launched her own comedy news show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS. In the closing segment, she sent a “foreign exchange producer” to gauge the level of support for Jeb Bush, who can’t get voters to clap for him. When asked what kind of drink Jeb would be, one supporter said milk — “a normal drink.” “He’s a little meek,” another supporter said. Not Bee. If there’s one complaint: Once a week is just not enough for Samantha Bee. Do something about that, will you, TBS?

    The world is ending. How funny is that? Pretty darn funny, at least as depicted in You, Me and the Apocalypse, a British import making its U.S. debut Thursday on NBC. But this isn't a flat-out comedy. In classic British style, it's also weird and dark, with an uncomfortable premise and characters who are quirky at best, horrible at worst.

    In the past two years, the WGN America cable channel, which was forever known to basic cable subscribers for baseball games and sitcom reruns, redefined its business plan and ordered up some of them fancy-style original drama series to add to its schedule. Outsiders is a notable leap forward for the network, as taut and intriguing and artfully conceived as any of the pretty-good series I’ve reviewed in the past year. You could proudly serve it alongside Sons of Anarchy, Rectify or Justified, and your guests might not taste the difference. With this show, WGN America is asserting its right to make provocative television. The fight for viewers’ attention is getting bloodier.

    FX’s male-centric misery index remains very much alive and suffering, even without Rescue Me. The network and its offshoot, FXX, still provide homes for Louie, You’re the Worst, Man Seeking Woman and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. But all are pre-serpent Gardens of Eden compared to FX’s Baskets, in which Zach Galifianakis (it’s bad enough having to repeatedly type his name) plays perhaps the saddest sack in TV series history. Baskets shows no signs of melting into anything close to gooey sentimentality. Its trials and tribulations pole vault over those on HBO’s Girls, but without getting all whiny and preachy about it. Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson and Martha Kelly fit their roles like the thick rubber gloves used in emptying human waste from portable johns. What fine messes they’re in.
