In television, likability matters. A lot. The screen sits inside our homes, and its continuing characters live with us over the course of months, years or even decades. We love Lucy. We root for Raymond. Hoss and Little Joe were part of the family. Now, Ally, Scully and Sipowicz are. And Sipowicz pretty much proves the likability rule. When "NYPD Blue" premiered in 1993, Dennis Franz's character was a nasty, racist loser who played counterpoint to heroic leading man David Caruso.

Welcome, Fall TV Season, already in progress. Despite myself, and knowing that you will let me down at least as much as you might lift me up, I must admit that the big billboards heralding your big new shows raised in me a childlike rush of anticipation. (Though perhaps it is really the memory of "Get Smart!" I am excited for.)

"Enough is enough!" That's the refrain of the activists in "Taking Back Our Town," a movie (9 p.m. Lifetime) based on the true story of the neighborhood women who battled a big corporation planning to build a petrochemical plant in their already polluted Louisiana parish during the late 1990s. It also suggests the central questions posed by the filmmakers: How much can people stand before standing up--or backing down?
