TONIGHT: The Whitest Kids U'Know (10pm on IFC)
This five-guy sketch troupe returns for a third season of silly songs and sophomoric laughs. If you're young and male—or, more specifically, consider the recurring themes of animals and sex inherently fascinating—you might find a chuckle or two in that special comedy soup where tasteless meets hilarious. A funny female or two would help, but their low-tech humor is promising; the premiere episode throws Charlie Chaplin into a Valkyrie situation and imagines a newscast after aliens steal all the planet's smart people.
Also tonight: Toddlers & Tiaras (10pm on TLC) points the reality-television camera at the kiddie pageant juggernaut, an industry seemingly designed to make all of us, including and especially the childless, feel like superior parents.
