TV picks for Sept. 19: ‘Norm Macdonald Has a Show,’ ‘Big Food Truck Tip,’ ‘I Feel Bad’
Outside the norm
Norm Macdonald Has a Show is a mess, thanks to a host that constantly interrupts A-list guests like David Letterman and Jane Fonda, belittles his sidekick and has the attention span of a drunk flea. But the comedians shortcomings are actually what make this new program hilarious. Whether hes doing it on purpose or not, the former SNL anchor may be satirizing the whole talk-show format better than anyone else currently manning a desk.

Keep on truckin
Minnesotas own Andrew Zimmern continues to build his empire with Big Food Truck Tip, a six-part series in which the host rewards entrepreneurs-on-wheels with $10,000 and his valuable stamp of approval.

Mothers little helper
Its unfair to feel great about I Feel Bad right out of the chute, even if Amy Poehler is attached as an executive producer. Theres plenty to like about this single-camera comedy, starting with star Sarayu Blue as a frazzled mother juggling work, kids and nagging parents. If the series feels less than spectacular, give it some time. Parks and Recreation didnt really hit its stride until the second season.
