CBS (Mondays, 8 P.M. ET)


Absolutely, utterly, unbelievably worthless. That about sums up the latest show to litter Monday nights on CBS. It is the most infantile show ever on Mondays—or perhaps ever on the air. In Live-In, a pretty young woman from Australia (Lisa Patrick) moves in with a New Jersey family to take care of their baby and set hormones flowing in their teenage son (Chris Young). The son slathers, drills holes in the bathroom wall to watch her take a bath and holds enlightened conversations with his teen buddy about male-female relations today: "So, did you boff her yet?" This thing is so bad, it wouldn't have been made even back in the days when The Beverly Hillbillies was a Top 10 show. Poor CBS must have been desperate to fill a half hour. But you should pray that you are never so desperate yourself.
