>Looking for something off the beaten path? Try MTV's The Breakdown Tour (Thurs., Sept. 27, 7 P.M. ET), a spoof in which Ken Ober gets sold down a river of commercials by his mock boss, Fred Willard. Or take in Maniac Mansion on the Family Channel (Fridays at 7 P.M. ET) with Joe (SCTV) Flaherty and the most macabre sitcom family since the Addamses.
