THE TBS sitcom "My Boys" returns for Season 2 on Monday, preceded by a Season 1 marathon on Sunday. Series star Jordana Spiro says playing Chicago sportswriter PJ Franklin isn't much of a stretch. "She's kind of a guy's girl in that she loves poker and hanging out with her guy friends so much that she has trouble coming up with a guy of her own," says the unmarried L.A. resident. "I do have a lot of male friends, and I'd rather go camping than, say, have a spa weekend.

Voyeurism has long proved a fitting topic for the movies, most memorably in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom." "Alone With Her," a new twist on that theme, utilizes the latest technology to tell its tale. Immediately, the audience is thrust into the point of view of a video camera (lodged in a duffle bag), carried around to film attractive young women.

It ain't pretty to look at, makes a lot of noise when it runs, and has more than a few features that don't function, but the car dealership comedy "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" has a beater's clunky, fast-moving charm. Set in the world of crass, battle-fatigued automobile salesmen and produced by the machismo-skewering team of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Talladega Nights"), it doesn't set out to be the raunchiest or silliest or dumbest movie you've ever seen.

I would like to go on record saying it's about dang time there is a show about a female doctor whose brilliance and skill are not offset by near-crippling insecurity, adolescent anxiety or the coldness associated with same. Whether that doctor needs to be a surgeon working off a debt to the Chicago mob while performing innovative heart surgery at a top-notch hospital where she also advises on everything from obstetrics to upper management is another issue. It's difficult to say what sort of show "The Mob Doctor," which premieres Monday on Fox, will be. Like the title, the pilot teeters between odd and simply ridiculous.
