\'Welcome to New York\'

8:30 p.m. Wednesday, CBS

"Welcome to New York" immediately catches attention by utilizing yet another catchy theme song ("New York, New York" from the musical On the Town). The show is built around the well-worn "country mouse goes to the city," as Indiana weatherman Jim Gaffigan (played by -- no joke -- Jim Gaffigan) moves to big, bad New York City. \nAlthough the show was originally set to be a vehicle for Gaffigan, wisely the writers are instead giving him a formidable adversary in Christine Baranski's delightfully bitchy producer, Marsha. The best part of "Welcome to New York" is watching Baranski throw insults at Gaffigan and practically everyone else on the entire show. Another great addition is "Roseanne" alum Sarah Gilbert as Amy, the production assistant who is kind of Marsha's bitch-in-training. Now if "Welcome to New York" could just rid itself of Rocky Carroll's boring and cliched anchorman Adrian, then the fur could really start to fly.
