Us Rating: ***1/2

TV's queen of denial is back. As the edgy comedy picks up, the titular pill popper (Edie Falco) is floored that her husband and best friend have figured out she's a lying, thieving addict. Her coping strategy? Go to work and do drugs -- even though her boss (the excellent Anna Deavere Smith) is on to her too. With all of Jackie's relationships on the precipice, her journey is as emotionally tense and gripping as ever. And special kudos to Falco, a visceral tour de force who can deliver a tart quip like no other. (Showtime, 10 P.M.)
