After centuries of being linked to emperors, kindly old uncles and secret agents who talk into shoes, Max has reemerged as one of the coolest names you could possibly attach to a baby boy. Anyone who has a kid named Max, raise your hand. See, you could fill a ballpark. The state of cool hasn't been too much of a concern to 12-year-old Max Keeble (Alex D. Linz), a paperboy whose imagination exceeds his daring.

We can't believe we're talking about: NBC's "The Baby Borrowers." Social experiment or the worst idea for a reality show yet? Here, teen couples are forced to grow up quickly. They're given homes, full-time jobs -- and babies. Real ones. And you thought the parents of the tots on "Kid Nation" were bad. (Wednesday) You will probably talk about: "Hancock."

Scrat was initially created to bookend the original 2002 computer-animated hit, "Ice Age." But when he became an audience favorite in the film's trailer, directors Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha expanded his role. Scrat (voiced by Wedge) even starred in the Oscar-nominated spinoff short, "Gone Nutty." Now, in "The Meltdown," Scrat is integral to the plot.

It's remarkable, when you think about it, that young people manage to survive adolescence without permanent psychological damage. It's a time of so much confusion and frustration, of such unmediated unfairness and unfocused rage, that it's a tribute to the resilience of youth that most of us come through it more or less in one piece.

Luke Shapiro, the depressed high school grad at the center of "The Wackness," labors to be more than just your average white homeboy in 1994 New York City. Occasionally he succeeds. He drops the hip-hop qualifier "mad" (read: very) into every third remark, peddles drugs from an Italian ices cart to second-generation flower children in Central Park and trades dope with his psychiatrist in exchange for bonus therapy minutes.
