Everything you need to know about “Work It’’ - the new ABC comedy about men dressing as women to find employment in hard times- can be summed up in two jokes in the pilot episode, airing tonight at 8:30.
Early on, family man Lee Standish (Ben Koldyke) is poised to whine about his upcoming prostate exam to his long-suffering wife, Connie (Beth Lacke). (Is there any other kind on a sitcom?) Connie, who has been helping keep the family afloat with her job as a nurse, stops him in his tracks by saying that comparing a prostate exam to the “pinball scene in ‘The Accused’ ’’ is not OK. No, it’s not. Nor is finding a way to say that he was going to make that comparison. It’s also, like much of the show itself, not funny.
