UNDERRATED: 'Ben & Kate'

The world of TV comedy is a land of low expectations, but this newcomer from the producer of "The New Girl" has enough promise to encourage optimism. Its premise of mismatched siblings raising a kid may not be the freshest, but it makes up for it in execution, starting with an agreeably goofy cast rounded out by the charmingly goofy Dakota Johnson and Groundling alum Nat Faxon, who has the thick-headed physical chops of Will Ferrell.
