I don't beg (all that often), but please watch "Downward Dog" (8:30 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4). It's a very charming, highly amusing new half-hour comedy about a dog and his owner.

Yes, the dog — Martin — talks. But only sort of. We hear his thoughts. He occasionally speaks to the camera (like on "Modern Family"). But he doesn't talk to people. Or cats. Or other dogs.

Anyway,there's a whole lot more about "Downward Dog" and why I love it if you click here. Oh, and here.
