    TV Picks: 'Tiny Tiny Talk Show,' Whitney Rice
    "Tiny Tiny Talk Show" (Ora TV, new episodes Tuesdays and Thursdays); Whitney Rice (YouTube). A digital presentation of the Web network co-owned by Larry King, this "late-night" online mini-show lives up, or down, to its name, concluding its business in a dozen minutes or less, before an audience of a dozen people or less, on a set close if not quite a closet. (There will only be 11 episodes, for now or forever, so it is tiny in that way, as well.) The budget, too, evidently is small, though the show owns its modesty with a handmade, thrift store let's-do-this charm. In the accelerated, compressed, pocket-sized way we live now, it gets in a monologue, a couple of interviews, games, challenges and sketches into its cartoon-episode length without feeling at all meager. (That it has to move fast is a part of the joke, as in "30-second slumber party," which includes a prank call, talking about boys and guest Gillian Jacobs challenged to "tell us a really scary story in one sentence.") Indeed, in its very smallness it has been fashioned to reflect and promote its co-producer Keek, a short-short-form, video-based social media platform you may have never have heard of until reading this sentence -- a likelihood that increases exponentially with your age. Ora advertises the program as being expressly "for millennials," which is to say its rota of guests will probably not include any wrinkled, gray elderlies to distress young minds -- except if Bill Murray wanted to come on, of course -- but will definitely feature ones so second-decade-of-the-21st-century that even Generation Y-sters will have to look them up on Wikipedia.
