Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Friday

Suzanne Tenner/SHOWTIME

Ray Donovan Sunday at 10 p.m., Showtime

Such a wicked bizah show, but I love it. There are many story lines and actors who don’t work, but the ones that do work make it worthwhile. Anything on the show involving Jon Voight is good, and Ray’s fixer activities are generally rather juicy, especially when it comes to the sexually addled Tommy Wheeler (Austin Nichols). James Woods as a Whitey Bulger-like thug creep is perfect, and the struggles of Ray’s brothers Bunchy and Terry are a poignant study in man-children. Three more episodes left. Pictured (from left): Eddie Marsan, Pooch Hall as Daryll and Jon Voight.


Hello Ross 10 p.m., E!

Ross Mathews has been on talk shows from “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” – as Ross the Intern – to “Chelsea Lately.” He has also put in time on E!’s red carpet shows. Now the openly gay comic has a talk show of his own, with an interactive element so that audience members can ask the guests questions.
