On TV tonight: Three new shows

127554_764_ful.JPG The launch of new network TV shows continues tonight with three series.

“Animal Practice,” 8 p.m. KSEE (Channel 24.1): Generally, any show where a monkey is the most interesting character would not be worth a look. But, this is a very funny monkey. And while the new comedy about a pet vet (Justin Kirk) has some problems, it is far better than many of the so-called comedies still on the air at NBC.

“Guys With Kids,” 8:30 p.m. KSEE: Keep the guys. Drop the kids. This new comedy starring Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford and Zach Cregger is at its best when the adults are the room. There are only so many diaper changing, weird food eating, trouble causing jokes about babies that can be made.

“The Neighbors” 9:30 p.m. KFSN (Channel 30.1): A family moves to a suburban community where all of the other residents are visitors from another planet. The biggest joke is that the aliens have taken the names of famous athletes. It’s like “ALF” but without all the sophistication.

Wasn’t expecting much from ‘The Neighbors’ but would keep watching….It’s funny, and reminiscent of Mork and Mindy, or I dream of Jeannie….
Comedy and fantasy….it was a refreshing mix!
