Mommy dearest

Bridgette, the title character in “SMILF,” isn’t about to compete for mother of the year, running out on her young son to grab chips from a Boston convenience store and slipping into R-rated sexual fantasies. But a clear devotion to her child and her prying mother (Rosie O’Donnell) make her someone to root for. Same goes for the show’s creator and star, Frankie Shaw.

Smarty pants

Austin Rogers isn’t quite done showing off his big brain. The Macalester College grad who became one of the five most successful contestants in “Jeopardy!” history returns for the two-week Tournament of Champions, a true test of whether that Twin Cities education really paid off.

Minnesota modesty doesn’t seem to extend to our state’s wrestlers, including Edina-raised Ric Flair, who ruled the canvas between Verne Gagne and Jesse Ventura. Despite recent health scares, the retired superstar still oozes bravado in “Nature Boy,” a bittersweet new “30 for 30” documentary that reveals Flair’s showmanship and loneliness. Some of his statements defy logic — 15 drinks a day throughout his career! Bedding 10,000 women! — but there’s no denying that his quest to be in the spotlight cost him on the home front.
