VH1 (weeknights, 7 p.m. ET)

"He's so smooth, he'll slice your toast for ya and put butter on it and have ya dancin' into the kitchen to eat it." Dennis Franz describing a slippery suspect on NYPD Blue? No, Franz extolling singer Al Green on The List, the entertaining VH1 panel show in which celebrities argue for their top-three favorites in various pop-music categories. The first week of May features the casts of network TV series—Just Shoot Me (Monday), Freaks and Geeks (Tuesday), Malcolm in the Middle (Wednesday), Becker (Thursday) and NYPD Blue (Friday)—and the half hours are an enjoyable mix of camaraderie and one-upmanship. The prize for criticism goes to George Segal for remarking that "Happy Together," by the Turtles, makes him "scream with discomfort."

Bottom Line: Fun tune talk
