It's going to be a long off-season, especially where network TV is concerned, if the offerings don't soon improve from the dregs on display on this inauspicious opening night. Think of it as an excuse to catch up on repeats — or to dive into your DVR and/or On Demand archive to see what's new to you.
The only advice I have after enduring the pilot episode of NBC's woeful comedy Save Me is: Save yourself. This shrill parable of redemption, being burned off in back-to-back episodes (Thursday, 8/7c), is like a spiritual Enlightened for the tone deaf. Anne Heche, at her most manic (and that's saying something), stars as Beth Harper, a heroine possessed with an unbearable lightness of being — or you could just stop at unbearable — when she is suddenly transformed from an "angry drunken bitch" (her words) into a cockeyed optimist seemingly filled with a holy spirit after nearly choking to death on a sandwich.

CBS is letting The Job go.
The reality series, from Survivor's Mark Burnett and Michael Davies (Watch What Happens Live), has been pulled off the network's schedule after just two episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Reality series Undercover Boss will reclaim its Friday at 8/7c timeslot beginning Feb. 22. The move comes after...
Two years ago, a conversation Michael Davies had with his daughter, then a 19-year-old college student, inspired him to create a reality show about people trying to find employment.
"When she finished up freshman year at school, she told me that she had no intention of going back for her sophomore year," Davies tells TVGuide.com. "And when I asked her why, she said because none of the graduating seniors in her college have real jobs."
And thus, CBS's The Job, which premieres Friday at 8/7c, was born.
