    "What About Brian" is "Prison Break," except the prison is a man's feelings and escape involves eluding the warden of his doubts, and we're talking maximum-security misgivings.

    What can I tell you about "Four Kings" that you won't already know? It premieres tonight at 8:30 on NBC. By 8:46, or thereabouts, you will understand everything.

    The lavishing [of gifts] never abates, until what you're witnessing feels less like a party than an icky display of instant wealth meant to leave the rest of us drooling, wondering what about our own lives might get us on a TV show.

    "Runaway" begs your interest (who doesn't like a road trip story, even when the Feds aren't on your tail?) before fading for lack of energy, not to mention originality.

    Here, I guess, is a dude's version of an ABC chick show.

    "Sons of Hollywood" is the answer to a question nobody was wondering: What if you did "Entourage" with actual Hollywood layabouts, without the writing and the acting and, you know, all that other work stuff?

    Their team of comedy actors has some spunk and talent, but the show more closely resembles a commercial for mystery dinner theater, complete with testimonials by real audience members about how fun it all was in the end.

    It's satirical all right, paced roughly like "Arrested Development," but not very funny or believable.

    As the mission's race against time ticks down, "E-Ring" thinks it's got you by the throat, and that's true, because you feel like you're being led around on a leash.

    Sadly, this show makes a mess of its neighborhood-centric premise.

    [The] show is creatively forced, the sisters speaking in a zeitgeist-sounding dialect over "Sex and the City's" ambient xylophone, without ever landing in the kind of zeitgeist-capturing moment that made that show a hit.

    [A] warmed-over hip-hop saga.

    "Happy Hour," or as I like to call it: "Really, Fox? This?"

    Almost as soon as the sitcom begins you can feel where every joke is going to end.

    [It] instantly displays a commitment to slapstick in direct proportion to a state of comedic denial.

    A light-as-a-feather new sitcom.

    We're to believe ABC took a look at all this and said, yes, yes and yes.

    "Love, Inc." is as unintentionally unfunny as "Room and Bored" -- the sitcom within a sitcom on HBO's "The Comeback" -- was meant to be bad.

    "Big Day" is basically bad community theater with music clearances.

    NBC sent out five episodes; I sat through three before throwing the DVD on the Donate to Public Library pile. I would like to apologize in advance to the library.
