Sofa so good? Things are never quite ship-shape for television's favourite family, The Simpsons.
6.00pm BBC2 A man's best friend is his dog, so long as that dog isn't Santa's Little Helper and the man isn't Homer Simpson. The ugly, dumb one (the dog, of course) rips up Homer's newspaper, scoffs his breakfast, and then - horror of horrors - savages his $125 sneakers (shop salesman: "Sorry, our warranty doesn't cover acts of dog.") So what can you do with a canine catastrophe? Send him to obedience school run by a sadistic Englishwoman with a voice uncannily like Tracey Ullman's. Unfortunately all the vicious tugs on the choke chain in the world cannot teach Santa to sit.
So begins a new chunk of Simpson family life, the first of two this week. In Friday's episode (6pm BBC2), Homer loses the love of his daughter Lisa and tries to buy it back. As Marge would disapprovingly say: "Hmmm".
