TV picks for March 28: Zach Braff, Andrew Lloyd Webber tribute, ‘The Americans’
Your interest in Alex, Inc. will depend largely on how much you miss Zach Braffs earnest doctor on Scrubs. The actor is the co-creator and star of this sitcom about a journalist who swims against the mainstream by starting his own podcast. Its a timely, if not laugh-rich, premise. Still, Braff can be a draw, especially if you like rooting for dudes who emulate The Graduates Benjamin Braddock.
