Sally Struthers is back on Still Standing
(Bravo, Sal! A gig is a gig, hon)
What to watch Monday
• Sally Struthers is back on Still Standing (CBS, Monday, 8 ET/PT) as Bill's mother, who ruins the family's Christmas plans by making them have dinner at her house. Struthers is reliably funny, which is more than one can say for Standing or for the tiresome I-hate-my-mom jokes that have become the hallmark of CBS comedies. (Note to Judy and Bill: As if you're some prize.) It's enough to make you yearn for the return of the waiting-in-the-wings Yes, Dear, a show that is better written, better acted and less aggravating than either Standing or Listen Up. Granted, that's a startlingly low standard to top, but still, better is better.
