The Librarian

I've started seeing ads for TNT's original movie, "The Librarian: Quest for the Spear." Stars Noah Wyle as the title character, with Sonya Walger in the Buffy role, Kyle MacLachlan as his apparently deceased predecessor, Jane Curtin and Bob Newhart as his bosses, and Olympia Dukakis as his mother. I'm guessing from the casting it's supposed to be funny, and the description seems to back me up here:

[As the show begins,] brilliant 30-year-old student Flynn Carsen (Wyle) is kicked out of school by his professor because he believes Carsen, after earning 22 degrees, lacks life experience and thinks it would be a disservice to him to continue on.
Hm. I realize a spear might be more thrilling, but I must admit, I think he should be going after the Necronomicon. That might just be me, of course.
