Matt LeBlanc, last seen starring in that doomed Friends spinoff, Joey, is poised for a comeback thanks to this daffy showbiz satire. Premise: A British couple (Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig) move to L.A. to adapt their upper-crust sitcom stateside and are aghast when LeBlanc -- playing an absurdly cocky version of himself -- is made the star. A mix of clever farce and seductive story lines (is Greig attracted to LeBlanc?) makes this effort a winner. (Showtime, 9:30 P.M.)
