Doll & Em
Wednesdays, 10pm, HBO
Captive audience: Cringe humor fans; guys who dig British chicks; girlfriends who secretly hate each other.
Moment of truth: Emily Mortimer took some time in-between spouting Aaron Sorkin’s sanctimonius babble on The Newsroom to co-create and co-star in this six-part, improvised dramedy with good pal Dolly Wells. They play childhood friends who’ve grown up to be very petty ladies, as evidenced when Mortimer brings Wells to L.A. to be her assistant, and they consistently engage in passive-aggressive one-upmanship. While Mortimer and Wells make an adorable pair of frenemies—women may associate all too well with these two—gotdamn, is this show a painfully awkward grind.
Emmy or phlegmmy: Phl-emmy.

Fridays, 10pm, NBC
Captive audience: Thomas Harris readers; David Lynch fans; people who want to get freaked the fuck out while watching TV.
Moment of truth: After downing four episodes of the new, second season, I have one question to ask: HOW THE HELL IS THIS SHOW STILL ON NETWORK TELEVISION?! Graphically gruesome and nightmarish as hell, the saga of how Hannibal the Cannibal (played here by Mads Mikkelsen) came to be continues to be a grim, surreal and utterly fascinating one. With troubled FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) now stuck in jail for Lecter’s murders and Lecter taking his place as the FBI’s top profiler, I can only assume this reversal of misfortune will get deeper, darker and deadlier in future episodes.
Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy.

Inside Amy Schumer
Tuesdays, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Captive audience: Sketch-comedy geeks; guys who dig funny chicks; girlfriends who secretly hate each other.
Moment of truth: Dirty-minded comedienne Amy Schumer returns for the second season of her real-personal sketch show, once again reminding Comedy Central that women can anchor funny shows. (If I see one more show on that channel starring a douchey white boy, I swear to gawd!) Anyway, Schumer continues to be a sexual satirist, making fun of the flaws and hypocrisies that exist between the sexes. Paul Giamatti, Zach Braff and recently departed The Good Wife star Josh Charles are some of the guests who join Schumer in her mission to be just as ballsy–and brilliant–as the rest of the guys.
Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy.
