Gotta serve somebody
Bob Dylan offers up a rare on-screen interview to hail a musical chief in "Jimmy Carter, Rock & Roll President," a documentary that's more interested in playlists than politics. No. 39 is practically giddy reflecting back at his friendships with the Allman Brothers, Willie Nelson and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as a time when the White House was one of the coolest music venues in the world.

"Last Man Standing," which has always winked at Tim Allen's past work, doubles down on self-referential jokes in its ninth and final season, which jumps three years into the future. Look for nods to "The Santa Clause," "Toy Story" and, of course, "Home Improvement," especially in an upcoming episode in which "Standing's" Mike Baxter comes face to face with "Home's" Tim Taylor.

I love L.A.
Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the duo behind "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," have done it again. "Mr. Mayor," in which Ted Danson takes over Los Angeles, is an utter delight, thanks to rapid-fire jokes and a stellar cast that includes Oscar winner Holly Hunter as an ambitious deputy and "SNL" veteran Bobby Moynihan as a bumbling press secretary. As long as Fey believes in network sitcoms, so should the rest of us.

"Go-Big Show" could be written off as a low-rent version of "America's Got Talent," but skipping it means missing out on judge Snoop Dogg's over-the-top reactions to the novelty acts. Watching the rapper freak out when an alligator slithers onto the stage is 10 times more entertaining than the fire-eating acrobat.

Games people play
Prime-time game shows are all the rage during the pandemic, probably because they are easier to churn out under tight restrictions. One of the most intriguing is "The Hustler," a combination of "The Mole" and a quiz show. Minnesotan Brianna Hershey is among the contestants on the premiere episode. The mystery element and questions are both subpar, but it's fun to see host Craig Ferguson back in action.
