Knee deep amidst the network upfront announcements of axes swung and shows born and reborn comes a dire New York Times business article. The end of every TV season brings predictions of TV's demise. Is The End really near?
The fall season finales are just a few weeks away and, as with every year, fan expectations run extremely high.
"Supernatural" has always pulled off its midseason finales with great aplomb, and I'm pleased to report that "Citizen Fang" showed no sign of breaking that streak -- packing half a season's worth of tension, betrayal and angst into a 42-minute slice of character development.
A lyric from "The Sound of Music" to sum up the big happenings of "The Good Wife": "So long, farewell/Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight" Nick!
Blammo! Liz Lemon is married! What the what?!
Tomorrow I'll be chatting with one Frank Rossitano, aka Judah Friedlander, but in this interview, I want all the questions to come from you guys.
Watching the stand there, slackjawed, was an oddly anti-climactic ending to a finale that contained plenty of fighting but not much in the way of truly pulse-pounding moments.

This week's episode of "Revenge", aptly titled "Lineage," flashes back to the year 2006, showing our cast of avengers to be a little healthier and younger but with the same ol' problems.

"Oh come on," I said as "The Good Wife" wrapped a very enjoyable episode. Both because "A Defense of Marriage" was ending and because Alicia's actions.
Coming off the wondrous "I Am Anne Frank, Part II," "Monstrosity" managed to keep the quality bar high, becoming what might be my favorite episode of the season (or maybe even the series).
Mindy is feeling insecure. Not only does her pseudo-boyfriend Josh tell her he's not ready for exclusivity, but she's spending Thanksgiving with her overly perfect BFF Gwen and her husband who looks like Mitt Romney.
"Vile" was the perfect catch-up for any viewer who has suffered a blunt force head trauma over the past six years and forgotten everything that's happened up until this point; the characters were all doing their best to remind us about things that happened as recently as last week.
