"The Help," a new series from Ron Leavitt, the man who created "Married ... With Children" -- a show to which I would never have expected to affix the words "far superior," but so be it -- is the sort of thing that makes me feel sorry for actors. No one forces them to be actors, of course, but it does call to mind the old joke about the man who sweeps up after the circus elephants.

You pay your $10, you sit in a room with women wearing black clothes and men wearing ponytails, and you listen to television stars read their innermost thoughts in blank verse. You are at one of L.A.'s currently popular (make that inexplicably popular) celebrity poetry readings. You experience a deep feeling of nausea. Can these people possibly take themselves seriously?

It's a funny thing about watching a great comedy show: The top-notch performers can make it appear so effortless that it seems as if anyone could do it. But as tonight's 8 p.m. premiere of the ABC Family series "My Life Is a Sitcom" makes so excruciatingly clear, TV is definitely not for everyone. And certainly not for the Mozian clan of Old Greenwich, Conn.

In "How to Train Your Dragon," the 2010 film from DreamWorks Animation, a skinny viking teen named Hiccup discovers that dragons can be taught and tamed, a lot like dogs, except that these dogs are 30 feet across and breathe fire. By the end of the film, vikings and dragons, who began the movie trying to brain each other, are best pals. As with so many other stories of star-crossed, interspecies pairings, from "The Adventures of Milo and Otis" to "Avatar," one wonders just where this relationship will go. That question is answered in the new animated series "Dragons: Riders of Berk," which is being produced by DreamWorks Animation for Cartoon Network.

CBS' "Schoolbreak Specials," hourlong films dramatizing pertinent teen issues, are generally well done within the limitations of the format, but sheer fun isn't one of their usual ingredients. That's what makes today's delectable offering, "Words Up!" (3 p.m. on Channels 2 and 8), such a surprise. Kadeem Hardison ("A Different World") stars as Henry, an illiterate 25-year-old high school dropout who can't hang onto a job.

The Scene: Monday night in Beverly Hills, at a celebration for the 100th episode of "Married . . . With Children," the show that brought America the Al Bundys, the infamous family of bottom feeders that set new standards in televised boorishness. Instead of throwing the party in a typical Bundy environment--a bowling alley or a discount shoe store--Columbia Pictures Television and Fox Broadcasting opted to rent the trendy Beverly Hills club Asylum.

Al Bundy and family will bid farewell to America next month, as "Married . . . With Children"--the first Fox prime-time series and currently television's longest-running sitcom--ends its 11-year run. Once Fox's top-rated program, the audience for "Married" had dropped sharply this season to about 9 million viewers each week, compared to an average 15 million just two years ago.
