'The Comeback'

The ironies write themselves: A show about a former TV star (starring a former TV star) called The Comeback gets cancelled after one season — only to get its own comeback nine years later. Lisa Kudrow's comedy, which skewers the hollowness of fame, was initially inspired by the reality extremes of Survivor. But in 2014, The Comeback seems less prescient and more grimly reflective of a time in which no celebrity ever dies — she just gets repackaged again and again until we get sick of her.
