TV picks for Thursday, March 7, 2013, include “The Ben Show With Ben Hoffman” on Comedy Central, “Community” on NBC and “Glee” on Fox.
Tonight in Prime Time
‘The Ben Show With Ben Hoffman’
This new sketch comedy show featuring low-key comedian Ben Hoffman is an odd hybrid (and definitely an acquired taste). Things work best when Hoffman talks with his therapist, family members or people on the street. Also, anyone who is easily offended should probably steer clear. 10 p.m. Thursday on Comedy Central (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
