What's on TV This Week: Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham's 'Playing House' Premieres

Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, who created and starred in the acclaimed but short-lived 2012 NBC sitcom Best Friends Forever together, are debuting their new comedy, Playing House, this week on USA with two back-to-back episodes. The show's supporting cast features Brad Morris, Zach Woods, and Keegan-Michael Key, and it's part of the USA network's new push towards comedy programming.

While Playing House is starting its season this week, several comedies are wrapping up their seasons, including Portlandia and freshman series Sirens and Review. Also, Saturday Night Live returns this week with Andrew Garfield as host, and Louis C.K. and Amy Sedaris are both doing the same episode of Letterman, which should be a delight.
