'The United States of Tara,' Showtime

Sundays As a suburban mom with a split personality, talented Toni Collette plays four roles (none of them, like her, Australian), in this cable-style family comedy -- i.e., it's weird but, in its way, heartwarming. Created by Steven Spielberg, of all people, and developed by Diablo "Juno" Cody, once again endorsing the oddball. Reliable John Corbett, as solid husband/dad, makes it seem workable. (Jan. 18, 10 p.m.)
