Fox, 11 p.m. Saturdays Sykes is a usually able performer, both as a comedian and actor, but still seems uncomfortable as a talk-show host. (To be fair, she's logged only 13 episodes -- the 14th airs Monday -- since her weekly show debuted in November.) Jokes that might play well from the guest's chair, or as part of a live routine, fall consistently flat when she speaks straight to the camera. She does better hanging out with guests in "Wanda's Bar," a Bill Maher-style round table on cultural and political current events. The guest list is diverse and plays to the fringe -- Jenna Jameson, Margaret Cho, Megan Mullally, Tim Meadows, Neil Patrick Harris, Snoop Dogg and such.
