3 THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW (HBO) Garry Shandling is TV’s purest artist, quietly yet aggressively laboring over an unmatched portrait of show-business egotism.

Very often, Larry Sanders is so funny I have to choke back a guffaw lest I miss the next punchline.

And I can’t think of another sitcom that repays taping and repeated viewing as well.

Representing a final flourish of ’90s irony, it’s a deconstruction of talk shows that’s now even better than David Letterman’s.

In her memoir Settle For More, Kelly claims that Ailes tried to kiss her against her will, made inappropriate sexual comments in her presence and even told her about some 'very sexy bras' he would like to watch her wear.

Reports had been circulating for months as well claiming that there is little chance that both O'Reilly and Kelly would re-up their contracts, though neither of the two said anything to confirm that claim. I'm not that interested in this.'O'Reilly seemed to be referencing the chapter in Kelly's book where she details former Fox news CEO Roger Ailes' sexual harassment of her and her decision to cooperate with the company's investigation into its CEO this past July.

2 THE X-FILES (Fox) The concept most alien to this show — displays of simple human emotions — is what kept The X-Files fresh and intriguing this season.

David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully now give off a united glow that says to the world, ”We’re right, you’re wrong, back off.” There’s no denying that The X-Files is more uneven these days (that episode where Mulder was remembering past lives was more heartburn commercial than X-File), but this is one series in which such erratic-ness is less a sign of creative exhaustion than of an admirably heedless faith in flaky flukiness.

It will also be a relatively easy office move for Kelly, as Fox News headquarters is just two blocks away from Rockefeller Center, which is the home of NBC.

4 NEWSRADIO (NBC) Former Sanders collaborator Paul Simms has managed something Shandling has opted not to try: an iconoclastic sitcom that nonetheless adheres to the strictures of network TV.

Dave Foley, as the radio station’s put-upon news director, is probably the subtlest actor in sitcoms, whereas Phil Hartman and Andy Dick thrive on reckless excess.

It also marks a remarkable ascent for Kelly, who got into the field later in life after becoming disillusioned with her career as an attorney.

Polite farewell: 'I remain deeply grateful to Fox News, to Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch, and especially to all of the FNC viewers,' Kelly said in a statement (l to r: lachlan, Rupert and James Murdoch in March)Kelly said that after Murdoch presented her with what the network was prepared to offer her come July, she told him that she wanted time to think things through and make the best decision for herself and her family.
