Why wait until the new fall season to start bemoaning how crappy TV is? You can get a sneak preview of many ballyhooed upcoming series by attending TV Preview Parties at the Paley Center for Media. Tonight features sneaks of My Own Worst Enemy, Kath & Kim, Crusoe and Knight Rider. The series of vile crap followed by a Q&A continues through next Wednesday. Then you can go home and rewatch every episode of The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman, a show far too hilarious to ever be on network television. Paley Center for Media, 465 N. Beverly Dr., Beverly Hills; Sept. 5-19; free admission, but RSVP at paleycenter.org ($10 donation suggested). (310) 786-1025.
