'Absolutely Fabulous — 20th Anniversary Special'

Sweetie darling, has it really been two decades since this nutso/politically incorrect gang appeared on our TV screens? Apparently so. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley return as the wonderfully soused duo of Edina and Patsy, best mates and clueless mavens of the modern world. The rest of the gang is back as well. Here's hoping for more hysterical high jinks from Eddy's one-of-a-kind personal assistant, Bubble (Jane Horrocks). 10 p.m. Sunday on BBC America (
