Sophomore year

"Grown-ish" may be a spinoff of "Black-ish," but its closest relative is "A Different World," although I don't remember Denise dealing with a gay roommate and drug addiction.

Who you gonna call?

"Mythbusters Jr.," an offshoot of the popular science series that has kids taking on the bulk of the lab work, is a noble idea. But the premiere, which incorporates the many uses of duct tape, keeps getting interrupted by grown-up Adam Savage, who is way too interested in looking back at old clips from the original show. These youngsters, including South Dakota's Allie Weber, are too smart — and too interesting — to have so much adult supervision.

Hiding in plain sight

In "The Masked Singer," supposedly famous figures perform while wearing costumes lifted from mascots for an S&M club's flag football league.
