TV picks for Aug. 28:  Maria Menounos, "A Fish Called Wanda,” "World's Wildest Commercials”

  • Updated: August 27, 2014 - 1:39 PM

Kevin Kline stars in 1988’s “A Fish Called Wanda.”

Ave Maria

“Untold With Maria Menounos,” E!’s version of “60 Minutes,” takes a look at reality stars who have stuck it out past their 15 minutes of fame (and those who didn’t), plus a look at celebrity stalkers and the impact of EDM on the pop-culture scene. Now if only the show would do an exposé on Mario Lopez’s hair. 7 p.m. E!

Ad men

Former “Saturday Night Live” player Chris Parnell brings his droll sense of humor to “World’s Wildest Commercials,” a countdown of the 20 most outrageous ads, including spots that are deemed too naughty for the U.S. market. Let’s hope the gig doesn’t do damage to Parnell’s other job as the voice of “The Box” in Progressive spots. 9 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5

Gone fishin’

If cable can repeat the Jimmy Fallon bomb “Taxi” every other day, why can’t it do the same with a much greater comedy? For my money, 1988’s “A Fish Called Wanda” doesn’t get in the rotation nearly enough. The top-notch cast includes Kevin Kline, who picked up an Oscar for his role. 7 p.m. Esquire Network
