Hell on earth.

According to Jim
9 p.m., Channel 5

Hey, give me a break. It's a new episode.

9:30 p.m., Channel 5

What can I say? I love the idea of carpool buddies and wanted this show to be good. It isn't good. It's really bad. The episodes all seem to be steeped in predictable guy jokes and guy fear about women. But one character - the geeky, freaky Marmaduke - is truly original, and deserves a better show. He's played by comedian T.J. Miller (left), who appears in the movie "Cloverfield."

I Came Back From the Dead
10 p.m., National Geographic

And what a long, strange trip it was.

Air Emergency
9 p.m., National Geographic

Relive the terror!

Planet Terror: Grindhouse

Last year's auteur-sleazo double bill from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez has been broken in half. This is Rodriguez's contribution, the more conventional of the two. It's a zombie-attack extravaganza. Not for the squeamish or for kids. (R; runs through Feb. 13) - Ty Burr

In Treatment
9:30 p.m., HBO

It's three, three, three Blair Underwoods in one season. The actor has a regular gig on "Dirty Sexy Money" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine," which returns Feb. 4. And tonight, he begins a run on this new HBO series about therapy (above, with Gabriel Byrne). He plays a Navy pilot dealing with a mission gone wrong and the deaths that he caused.
