The pilot episode. Relive the early joy.


Ron Howard deftly and entertainingly filters some apt observations about the culture of celebrity and the ever-blurrier line between reality and TV in this likable romantic comedy. Matthew McConaughey (left) is winningly goofy as the everyslob singled out for round-the-clock scrutiny. Jenna Elfman (right) is a delight as his spunky girlfriend who moves out when the cameras move in. (PG-13; runs on Starz through Jan. 10)

Parking Wars
10 p.m., A&E

If your idea of good times is watching the men and women of the Philadelphia Parking Authority enforce the parking laws, this show is for you. Tickets are written and tucked under windshields; cars are towed; and owners get stressed. It's all part of the joy of living in the City of Brotherly Love.
