Open office hours

Softie at heart
“Good Talk With Anthony Jeselnik” offers its host plenty of opportunities to apply his withering wit, from ridiculing Kristen Schaal’s baby voice to needling David Spade for his appearance in “Police Academy 4.” But Jeselnik has a soft side when it comes to the art of stand-up, which leads to some fascinating conversations with his fellow comics.

Ready for the country
A lot of the all-stars featured in Ken Burns’ “Country Music” aren’t on the bill for “Country Music: Live at the Ryman,” but the two-hour special still serves as a nice preview for the documentary’s premiere next Sunday. Highlights include Dwight Yoakam and Dierks Bentley traveling the “Streets of Bakersfield” and Rosanne Cash paying tribute to father Johnny Cash with a cover of “I Still Miss Someone.”
