NEW SHOWSWatch It: Shark (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) James Woods, who is starting to look like the better-groomed twin of Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, gives a performance that's smooth, playful and big – on a different scale than you'll see in most dramatic series. He plays a hotshot defense attorney who suffers a moral crisis and decides to devote his formidable cunning to doing good by taking a job with the L.A. district attorney's office. I actually wish he'd stayed on the dark side, quashing considerations of decency under his shoe like a stale marshmallow. But an actor this good having a time this good is worth at least a nibble.
