Celebrity Wife Swap Sunday, 8 p.m., ABC

Andy Dick is not married. He does have a girlfriend. But it’s not his girlfriend who will be switching places with Lorenzo Lamas’s wife, Shawna. It will be Dick’s “former love interest” Lena, with whom he has a daughter and with whom he still kind of lives — in an Airstream trailer in the driveway — and who still drives him around, cooks for him, and manages his affairs who will switch places with Lamas’s fifth wife. Pictured: Andy and Lena.

All the insanely speedy speechifying and decision-making done by the verbose staff will surely have your heart racing. Be on the watch for several wonderful actors joining the cast this year including Marcia Gay Harden and Hamish Linklater.
