Keep on doin' what you do
I doubt there was an outcry for a reboot of "One Day at a Time," but creators Gloria Calderon Kellett and "Everybody Loves Raymond" veteran Mike Royce make this new sitcom work by focusing on a Cuban-American clan held together by a single mother who's recovering from separation and war service. The 13 episodes work best when building superintendent Schneider, now a full-out Lothario, is kept locked in his room, and the stage is turned over to grandma (a campy but irresistible Rita Moreno) and granddaughter (Isabella Gomez), battling over the importance of recognizing one's heritage. Original creator Norman Lear is an executive producer.

When you wish upon a star
"Life, Animated," the celebrated documentary about a man bonding with his autistic son through Disney characters, makes its TV premiere. The notoriously protective Disney studio signed off on letting director Roger Ross Williams borrow some of its biggest stars, including Simba and Ariel.

The new documentary series "The Real Mad Men of Advertising" owes more than its title to the Emmy-winning drama, with tons of clips from the show and cast member John Slattery serving as narrator. But the four-parter also has a lot to say about how TV commercials came to reflect both the country's good qualities (thinking outside the box) and bad (a woeful underrepresentation of black people that continues to this day). "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner makes an appearance, along with Brooke Shields and Howdy Doody.
