Keeping a clean and carefully edited DVR has always been important to me. As a TV journalist, it feels like part of the job. But then I got pregnant, had a baby and went on 16 weeks of maternity leave, and I'm here to confess that all DVR hell broke loose.
I had issues with "Top Chef" last season -- a lot of issues -- and though "Top Chef: Seattle" feels like my old favorite reality competition show again, I am still a bit wary.
Whether you dug "American Horror Story" last season, hated it like we did or are just curious about the "Asylum" promos enough to give it a shot this season, here are 10 reasons why we think it'll be worth our (and your) while.
HBO's "The Newsroom" has all the hallmarks of an Aaron Sorkin show, but there's one significant twist that should attract Sorkin fans and the uninitiated alike: He's making viewers the smart ones.
If you've seen one legal drama, you've seen them all, right? I thought so too, but USA's "Suits" is definitely one to watch.
Social media has become such a huge part of the TV landscape that any network not securing a simple, memorable handle for their new shows is way behind.
"Best Friends Forever" lays the foundation for what could be a zippy and enjoyable exploration of the intricacies of intimacy and friendship ... and each actor in the core trio has sharp comic timing.
The worry over the fate of Community isn't just about the future of the study group at Greendale Community College: It's about whether comedies that are neither broad nor predictable will be able to make it on the biggest networks.
If you're not into the Broadway behind-the-scenes-ness of it all, then you still won't like "Smash." But if you are, this episode establishes a tone that I hope continues through the remainder of the first season.
I adore Smash, but I've got a few good reasons why you should skip this next episode. (Number one: it's bad.)
"Smash" has music, dancing, lots of entertaining backstage bitchery and a very talented "American Idol" runner-up ... Truth be told, I got a lump in my throat at the end of the second episode -- an achievement for any show so early in its run.
A crucial horse race in the fourth episode proved that Milch owned me; his characters and their desires had seeped into my mind and soul without me realizing it, and I found myself near tears before the race was over.
You may have heard that Work It is one of the worst sitcoms of all time. You heard correctly. In fact, if the Metacritic rating for this new show isn't the lowest score ever for a television comedy, I'll be a little disappointed in my fellow TV scribes.
When a show is as bad as Work It, and you truly have nothing nice to say about it, it often feels like you should just follow that old adage and not say anything at all. But that's not my job. (Sorry, Mom!)
