Mark and Laura's Couples Advice Christmas Special 

When: Wednesdays. Continues through Jan. 20 2010
Price: $10
The premise sounds like a prescription for cliche: a dysfunctional married couple take to the airwaves to help/horrify the nation with their unique brand of relationship counseling. But the cast embrace their offbeat characters so wholeheartedly that they pull off a minor Christmas miracle--a holiday-special parody that foregoes snark and mere cleverness in favor of hilarious humility. Improvising with assurance and flipping missed cues into jokes with implacable wit, Carrie Bain gives put-upon wife Laura a homespun authenticity. The result is a show that comforts and disquiets in equal measure. --Keith Griffith
