By now, everyone knows it isn't cool to still be a fan of Bravo's long-running interview show, "Inside the Actors Studio." For one thing, the sucking up of its host, the bearded oddity James Lipton, has been so over-the-top for so long that even the lampoons of him on "Saturday Night Live" and "The Simpsons" don't look like exaggerations. The website jumptheshark.com has a running debate on when, not whether, the show became a spoof of its former greatness.

With the Bravo network's new series "Second City Presents ... With Bill Zehme," comedy has its own "Inside the Actors Studio." The host, a much taller, clean-shaven, more ebullient version of James Lipton, devotes each one-hour episode to one comedian or comic actor. Eschewing Lipton's signature blue note cards, Zehme consults his "Big Book of Comedy" to chart that performer's career, which is illuminated by conversation and illustrated with representative film clips.

'SHE'S going to give us good popcorn, fresh," James Lipton announces, "because she loves the show." He's right on both counts: The young woman behind the snack counter goes to the popper to fill two bags with the most freshly popped corn, then says that yes, indeed, she adores "Inside the Actors Studio," especially his interview with Angelina Jolie. Told that Lipton is about to have Diana Ross on, she asks if he's seen "Dreamgirls."

It's a quiet week in the world of late-night television, as the likes of Jay Leno and Jon Stewart ease into summer with reruns. Lest we go without celebrity chatter for a whole seven days, “Watch What Happens Live” is here to fill the void. On Tuesday Andy Cohen welcomed Khloe Kardashian, who, as seemingly all Kardashians are obliged to do, opened up about her big sister Kim's relationship with Kanye West. Khloe swatted down rumors that the couple is on the outs.
