Lovable dunces have been comedy staples going back farther than anyone can count. But the hero of "Worst Week," making its debut tonight on Channel 9, is not lovable; he's an aggravating idiot for whom it is difficult to feel sympathy, and insulting to feel empathy. With so few sitcoms premiering as part of the fall season (CBS has only one other, "Gary Unmarried"), you'd think the networks would have winnowed down the contenders to the best and brightest. But "Worst Week" hardly induces cheer.
