Thursday on TV: ‘Bad Teacher’ is bad, but not as awful as the ads

In Bad Teacher (8:30 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), a self-centered divorcée (Ari Graynor) poses as a teacher purely to snag a wealthy husband.

The best thing I can say about it is it’s not as bad as the commercials make it seem. It’s not good, but it’s not horrific.
