Revamped 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Still Underwhelms

April 12th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
LOLA
NBC brought back Law & Order: Los Angeles last night with two all-new episodes. While the series definitely improved, it's a shame that only brought it from unwatchable to passable.

The show decided to bring back some of the hallmarks of the franchise, including an opening narration and title sequence, but they're not great. The theme was so quiet that I had to listen closely to even follow it, not like the distinctive themes from the previous editions, and the title sequence was a slow-motion affair that felt overdone. Both failed to evoke the fondness of their predecessors. And ...

NBC Fall Season Preview: Spies, CIA Plots And Outsourcing

September 20th, 2010 11:45am EDT
NBC Fall Preview
NBC is likely getting tired of being referred to as "fourth place NBC." Last year's Jay Leno experiment was clearly a disaster and served as a boon for TBS, which won the Conan sweepstakes. This fall, NBC has fresher programming. With aging favorites and risky new underdogs, does the network have a shot at moving up the ratings ladder, even to third place? Time will tell. Stranger things have happened. Here's a look at what new shows could make the grade and what's in store for old favorites.

Back from the Dead: TV Shows That Survived Cancellation

May 8th, 2008 8:22am EDT
Jericho
Shows are canceled all the time. This time the victim was "Men In Trees," a show that jumped timeslots, disappeared for months at a time, and was finally put out of its misery by ABC. It wasn't exactly a surprise the network canceled it. Who knew it was still on? (Fans can catch the final few episodes when it airs again beginning May 28.)

But what doesn't happen all the time is second chances. Once a television show is canceled (a.k.a. axed, yanked, cut, punted, escorted off the premises, etc.) by its network, it ceases to exist. Normally, that is the case...but not always. After al...

Leave Them Hanging: Favorite TV Cliffhangers

April 2nd, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Lost
Television is a medium that thrives on manipulating audiences into tuning in, and no narrative device is more effective at accomplishing that task than the cliffhanger. With the end of the 2007-08 season rapidly approaching and new cliffhangers waiting in the wings, we have decided to celebrate our favorites from years past.

5) The Simpsons: "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"

The Cliffhanger: It didn't provoke quite the fervor of the "Dallas" storyline that it parodied, but this two-part episode did warrant a special "America's Most Wanted" and was discussed often during the summer of 19...

'Jericho' Series Finale: Second Time The Charm?

March 26th, 2008 9:04am EDT
Jericho
With "Jericho's" second (and likely final) cancellation announced late last week, this week's season finale has suddenly become a series finale. Thankfully for "Jericho" diehards (and CBS execs certainly know that they are out there), The Powers That Be foresaw this turn of events and filmed two endings for the episode - a cliffhanger and a conclusion. Since the show was cancelled, we received the latter. The only question is - does it satisfy?

The Final Beginning

On to the episode. Jake (Skeet Ulrich) and Hawkins (Lennie James) prepare to journey to Cheyenne in order to reacq...

'Jericho' Episode Recap: Everybody Hates Goetz

March 12th, 2008 9:22am EDT
DB Sweeney plays Goetz in Jericho
In season two, "Jericho" has fulfilled the promise of an uneven first year and become possibly the most gripping and action-packed hour of prime time television. Of course barely anyone knows that because only about 6 million people are watching. Guess the allure of "Primetime: What Would You Do?" is a little too much.

Sad music = sad times

This week's episode begins with the aftermath of an epic shootout at the Richmond farm that left Bonnie (Shoshannah Stern) dead and Mimi (Alicia Coppola) badly wounded. The mood around town is quite somber, and not even an appearance by t...

Jericho
The explosive second season of ''Jericho'' continues with yet another gripping installment. Big revelations were made about the conspiracy, certain characters’ eyes were opened, and shootout at the Richmond farm claimed the life of one Jericho citizen. Honestly, what more can you ask for? Well, besides more of bumbling deputy Jimmy (Bob Stephenson) that is.

Revolution!

Could a revolution be brewing in Jericho? Many locals are unhappy with the town administrators put in place by Jennings & Rall, and they are complaining about getting used and abused. Talk quickly turns to the Ameri...

'Jericho' Episode Recap: Welcoming Back Familiar Faces

February 27th, 2008 8:48am EST
Jericho
The gripping second season of "Jericho" continues as citizens of the beleaguered town are forced to deal with the return of Ravenwood, the mercenary group that nearly invaded Jericho months earlier. This time, Ravenwood is not simply a bloodthirsty rogue unit, shooting and looting across the Midwest. Now they are working for The Allied States of America and the country's doughy faced puppet master, Valente (Daniel Benzali).

Needless to say, Jake (Skeet Ulrich), Eric (Kenneth Mitchell) and company are not very pleased to see the return of Ravenwood or its sadistic leader, Goetz (D.B. ...

'Jericho' Recap: Decline and Fall of the First Republic

February 20th, 2008 9:44am EST
Jericho
Week two of the "Jericho" revival (one that looks to be short-lived if last week's ratings are any indication) starts off with another riveting recap of the story so far. That's all well and good, but unfortunately it seems that the only people watching the series are the diehard fans from last year, so it doesn't serve much of a purpose. Still cool, though.

Meet the new government

Things start out nice and serene, as Stanley (Brad Beyer) and Mimi (Alicia Coppola) enjoy a quaint breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes (yum-yum) and comment about how calm life has become. Uh-oh. T...

'Jericho' Season Premiere: New Government, Same Old Jericho

Jericho
The long-awaited second season of "Jericho" finally premiered, and viewers get to witness the events that transpired after Jake's (Skeet Ulrich) now famous battle cry. It is a well earned victory, one that caused a massive peanut shortage throughout the United States. But enough about the behind-the-scenes drama. What happened on screen? Was it worth the wait?

Where were we?

Things got started with a long but well constructed recap (a recap that was ultimately more exciting than the episode). The recap goes over the basics: 23 American cities destroyed by nuclear weapons. R...

'Jericho' Season Two Preview: Welcome to the Allied States of America

Jericho
"Jericho" returns tonight on CBS, 10 p.m. ET. When last we left our intrepid and resourceful post-apocalyptic mid-westerners, they were engaged in an all-out battle with the neighboring town of New Bern. Former mayor Johnston Greene (Gerald McRaney) had died a rather anticlimactic and needless death (as the most beloved character in the series he at least deserved to go out in a blaze of glory).

The tide had turned in favor of New Bern. But would those courageous Jericho folk simply surrender? Would they go quietly into the night? Never! They went back out there, Jake (Skeet Ul...

Celebrity Horoscope: Aquarius Are Honest And Open

January 29th, 2008 4:17pm EST
Sheryl Crow
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) is one of the Air signs, along with Libra and Gemini. People born under this sign are often very honest and open. They are never unkind and are always considerate of others. They are considered dreamers and can be somewhat unrealistic at times. They love everyone, sometimes even their worst enemies.

Aquarius women tend to be very elusive and mysterious. They are often open-minded and extremely tolerant of others. They consider marriage a very big step since they are independent by nature. They're not jealous people and are free-spirited and forgiving. Aqua...

Every year TV shows come and go, but you don't have to let your favorite show get canceled without a fight. Several series have been saved through fan campaigns, which often include more than just online petitions. From bottles of Tabasco to an air plane banner and thousands of nuts, see how dedicated fans saved their favorite series from being canceled prematurely:

The campaign "Roswell it Hot, Hunger is Not" made over $28,000 for a world famine charity (series star Brendan Fehr's favorite charity). That wasn't the only campaign that saved the ratings-challenged WB series. "...
