On Today: Ullman's Return, Office Ads

By Roger Catlin on April 12, 2009 3:37 PM


Versatile and underrated comic actress Tracy Ullman returns with another big helping of myriad characters in a new season of "Tracy's Ullman's State of the Union" (Showtime, 10 and 10:30 p.m.). A number of her favorite characters from season one return, from TV anchor Linda Alvarez and blogger extraordinare Ariana Huffington (now angling for a job in the Obama administration), adding to them some new characters, chief of whom is Laura Bush, trying to adjust to living in Crawford, where the weather is hideously hot and she's anxious to unload all the gifts and nicknacks they collected in the White House.

It almost makes you stop missing the similarly named "United States of Tara," which ended its first season last week. But it's surrounded by a new episode of "The Tudors" (Showtime, 9 and 11 p.m.).
