SATUR­DAY, AUG. 22

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUMMER TV PREVIEW -

“The Unau­tho­rized Full House Story” (Life­time at 8) Rec­om­mended only for late-’80s/ early-’90s nos­tal­gia masochists, this movie is about what it was (maybe) like be­hind the scenes of the beloved sit­com. Sup­ply your own “Have mercy!” joke.

“Blunt Talk” (Starz at 9) From Seth McFar­lane (“Ted”), a half-hour com­edy about ex­u­ber­antly in­ept Bri­tish news­man Wal­ter Blunt (Pa­trick Stewart), who is hired by an Amer­i­can ca­ble news chan­nel for a new show (Piers Mor­gan, any­one?) and runs into im­me­di­ate prob­lems. Jacki Weaver (“Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book”) co-stars.

“Tig No­taro: Boy­ish Girl In­ter­rupted” (HBO at 10) Stand-up spe­cial taped in Bos­ton in May. Yes, it’s true, she did just have a spe­cial on Show­time. Why, yes in­deed, she does have a spe­cial on Net­flix, too. Some­body re­ally likes her.
