I will survive

If the epic Grateful Dead documentary "Long Strange Trip" still has you dancing in the aisles, check out Bob Weir's sit-down with Deadhead Dan Rather on "The Big Interview," followed by an episode of "Classic Albums" that grooves on the Dead's recordings of "Anthem of the Sun" and "American Beauty."

Great American hero

Patrick Warburton was so winning as "The Tick" during its short-lived 2001-02 season that it's hard to imagine anyone else donning that blue suit and super-annoying optimism. This new version avoids direct comparisons by putting the focus on the hero's wary sidekick (Griffin Newman). As for the title character, Peter Serafinowicz is a more than adequate replacement, bringing just the right combination of Superman and Dudley Do-Right. Those who prefer their comic-book adventures with a heavy dose of sly humor will be tickled pink.

"Ryan Hamilton: Happy Face" gives a wider audience the opportunity to meet this rising comic, who makes observations about life in the big city from his perch as a small-town Idaho kid with a Mormon background. Hamilton performed at Acme Comedy Co. in February; if this special takes off, expect ticket demand to soar next time he swings by.
