Thursday on TV: “Please Like Me.” Pretty Please

"Please Like Me" debuts tonight on a brand-new cable channel. Pivot rather pompously thinks it’s got the whole millenial thing figured out and has aimed this show at 18-to-34-year-olds who think they’re smarter than everyone else.

"Please Like Me" is an Australian import that stars Australian comedian Josh Thomas as a guy who gets dumped by his girlfriend, thinks he might be gay and discovers his mother tried to kill herself.
