This freshman series, starring Rachel Bilson as an NYC medical whiz turned small-town doctor in Alabama, started out as a sweet fish-out-of-water dramedy. Now it’s rife with over-thetop antics. Tonight, Zoe (a flat Bilson), determined to deepen her local roots, asks to join the historical Southern belle clique run by her rival Lemon (Jaime King). This requires her to wear a goofy gown for a week. Homey charms aside, the Dixie tale is sillier than an electric banjo! (CW, 9 p.m.)
