We know him from Christopher Guest movies and “SCTV,” but we’re delighted to see him on television in the quirky “Schitt’s Creek” on Pop. Often understated and always hilarious, Levy’s role as the patriarch to a rich and severely spoiled family whose members find themselves owners of a small, less-than-desirable town shines above the rest. Levy comes from the world of improv, so it’s great to see him work in a scripted environment, particularly with longtime pal and comic genius Catherine O’Hara. He’s also co-creator of the show with his son Daniel, who stars in the series as Levy’s onscreen son. That relationship, too, is a joy to watch. We can’t wait for Season 3.
