If CONSTITUTION USA with Peter Sagal (8 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7) seems a little light, a little entertaining, well, that's a good thing.
We live in a nation where 62 percent of the citizens can't tell you what the three branches of government are, but they yell about the rights they think they have under the Constitution. So I'm OK with anything that teaches people about the document.
And Sagal (the host of "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" on NPR) does the job in an interesting, entertaining way.
