"I ate chocolate cake out of the trash can this morning," a New York City comedy commodities broker named Sam confesses to his eating-disorders group. "If you were a dog," snarls the group's tough-love dispensing leader, "I'd kick you in the face." In-your-face humor is the hallmark of this brash new sitcom created by indie filmmaker Eric Schaeffer (My Life's in Turnaround), who has cast himself as the neurotic Sam. Though the show spins around Sam's friendship with three Belt Tighteners classmates (Laura Benanti, Sterling K. Brown and Del Pentecost), it often aims below the belt, especially when the subject is Sam's hapless sex life (even when he scores he loses). Starved's raunchy humor may offend some, but I found Schaeffer's offbeat wit a veritable feast.
