Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Tuesday night


Web Therapy 11 p.m., Showtime

Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc (above) have had the most interesting post-“Friends” careers, in some ways. They’ve both made culty cable comedies — she did “The Comeback,” he’s doing “Episodes” — that make fun of network sitcoms. They’ve been able to use their experiences on “Friends” to inform their satire. On Tuesday, LeBlanc visits Kudrow’s series as a gambling addict. Also in this episode: Chelsea Handler.


My Big Fat Revenge 9 p.m., Oxygen

In keeping with the “Friends” theme: Could there be a worse idea for a reality show? This new weight-loss series has women trying to shed pounds in order to punish someone who insulted them for being overweight. After they transform their bodies, they revisit the people who hurt them and gloat. The twisted, misguided message: When someone tells you that you look awful, change the way you look. That’ll show ’em.
