‘The World’s Wildest Commercials’

It’s late August and the fall season of new shows is still a few weeks away. New programming is pretty scarce, so you might want to check out this special that looks at “wild commercials” from all over the world. Hosted by Chris Parnell (“Suburgatory”). 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
