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.

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.

Sure, she's a baseball beat writer for a Chicago daily, but her ardor isn't limited to the Cubs. She'll watch the Bears or the Blackhawks too, and then host a poker game at her not-too-frilly apartment. Perfect, no? Most crucially, she would never, ever leave you for one of her bros. At the end of the first season of "My Boys," P.J.
