Around the remote: ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a winner

By Chuck Barney Tribune News Service

DON’T MISS: “Survivor’s Remorse” – Apparently it’s not enough that LeBron James rules the NBA – he also serves as an executive producer of this must-see basketball comedy. In Season 3, the show’s title gets literal as star point guard Cam Calloway (Jessie Usher) and his family cope with the fallout of a tragic accident involving Uncle Julius (Mike Epps). But don’t worry: The season won’t be a total bummer because, when it comes to dishing out laughs, this show’s got game. 10 p.m. Sunday, Starz.
