"The Fanelli Boys" is a likable little NBC series about noisy Italian-Americans whose combative talk around the family dinner table and elsewhere--with their hands, naturally--gives prime time a rare ethnic comedy whose stereotypes are far less insulting than endearing. It premieres at 9:30 tonight on Channels 4, 36 and 39, hereafter to appear in its regular 9 p.m. Wednesday time slot.

Here's a twist: Mark Fuhrman as hero. Justice was delayed in the mysterious 1975 slaying of teenage Martha Moxley that stunned tony Greenwich, Conn. -- but not denied -- when Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was convicted of the murder this summer, two years after his arrest. Now Fuhrman, the disgraced former L.A. cop whose testimony inadvertently helped free O.J.

Like a take-it-outside scrape between two once-friendly drunks, the sibling rivalry comedy "Awful Nice" has a kind of bro-logic fascination embedded in its rambunctious male humor. How does a bonding moment turn sour? When is an insult a compliment too? Is there a smidgen of love accompanying that swing to the head? This is not to say that writer-director Todd Sklar's loose, unkempt tale of two long-incommunicado brothers on a disastrous trip to claim their dead father's inheritance is some model of broken-relations satire.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, allow us to present compelling evidence that will prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that crime does indeed pay -- at least on television. The No. 1 show this fall is "NCIS," Mark Harmon's military whodunit, which has defied TV's laws of gravity by drawing its largest audience (21.5 million) in its seventh season. Meanwhile, the top-rated new show is "NCIS: Los Angeles," a spinoff that airs right after its patriarch on CBS. Speaking of CBS, the network continues to crush its rivals in total viewers, thanks mostly to a glut of successful crime procedurals, including the three-headed "CSI" franchise, "The Mentalist," "Criminal Minds" and others.
