Fox has put a hit out on The Mob Doctor. The network has confirmed that it won't order any additional episodes. The freshman drama has run its course.

It had to happen sooner or later. The Fox Network is cutting its losses. After months of struggling in the ratings, The Mob Doctor has been canceled. The series is one of the least-watched dramas on the major four networks.

According to Zap2it, The Mob Doctor averages 4.4 million viewers and a 1.3 in the 18–49 demo. With numbers like that, critics assumed it would have been pulled a while ago. But Fox stuck with it — until the network's han...

"New Girl"

What sophomore slump? If you thought the comedy about the most adorable of dorks living with three guys was ripe with cleverness, eccentric humor and GIF-able moments in its first season, you weren’t prepared for the second.

Both judgments couldn’t be further from the truth. This is the same reason why I give new television shows three chances to hook me. I’m so grateful that I have, otherwise I would have given up on some pretty spectacular shows, the most recent being Fox’s "The Mob Doctor" before the freshman d...

Jordana Spiro
Although My Boys is sadly no more, actress Jordana Spiro is back on our small screens in another series that's set in Chicago. On FOX's The Mob Doctor, she plays Dr. Grace Devlin, a successful surgeon who's reluctantly in with the mafia after her brother runs up a considerable debt. Recently, I caught up with Spiro and Mob Doctor executive producer Josh Berman to chat about shooting in the Windy City and what made them want to get involved with the mob.

What motivated Spiro's return to television? "I think there were a couple of reasons," she said. "Two things that really stood out ...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

However, for this television blogger, Hollywood's newest crop of shows are all the presents I need. Judging strictly by the glittery wrapping that is their promos, here are my choices for this season’s can’t-miss new shows...
