Big Lake 10 p.m., Comedy Central
This show ought to be better than it is. Funny or Die, the comedy-short website, is uneven. But “Big Lake,’’ which is produced by the Funny or Die folks (including Will Ferrell) isn’t even uneven. It’s just plain straight-ahead awful — the laziest kind of multicamera sitcom about slackers that you can imagine. It’s too bad. Pictured (from left): Chris Gethard, Chris Parnell, and Horatio Sanz.
Covert Affairs 10 p.m., USA
USA just renewed this show for a second season, so fans can relax and enjoy. This is an easy show to watch, if you’re a fan of the kind of breezy action drama that USA specializes in. Essentially, it’s “Alias Lite.’’ I’m glad Christopher Gorham has landed a regular job on a successful series, after false starts on “Jake 2.0,’’ “Out of Practice,’’ “Medical Investigation,’’ and “Harper’s Island.’’ He’s a kick as the womanizing blind guy.
