Copy boy

Rob Schneider mines his "I don't get no respect" status in "Real Rob," a new series that blends stand-up comedy with exaggerated excerpts from the former "Saturday Night Live" star's everyday life. In other words, yet another retread of "Seinfeld" with dirty words. Norm Macdonald and David Spade are among his famous buddies who are in on the joke. Now streaming on Netflix

Defending Kermit

John Oliver recently spit his venom toward "The Muppets," wondering aloud why the show even exists. Well, if it pleases the court: May we present Joseph Gordon-Levitt duetting with Miss Piggy and Dave Grohl challenging Animal to a drum-off? Case closed. 7 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5

Back in the battle

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" ceded the spotlight to Stephen Colbert for much of the fall, but ABC's durable talk-show staple is now pulling out the big guns with trips to Brooklyn and last week's tribute to "Star Wars." Now, Kimmel hosts Bono, Scarlett Johanssen and the Killers in an effort to encourage giving financial support to World AIDS Day. 10:35 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5
