TV Wish List for 2009

December 29th, 2008 12:37pm EST
True Blood
It is time to bid farewell to the television of 2008 and welcome 2009 with open arms, but let it be with a sweet, friendly warning. TV viewers are fickle. One day we'll love your show, and the next we'll hate it. Sometimes all you have to do is steer a little off course, or introduce an irritating character, and then we abandon you to the cold. Yet TV viewers can be fiercely loyal, sticking to a show through seasons of awful dialogue just because we remember when it was great. The Writer's Strike put a real damper on new shows and old shows alike this year, but 2009 has a clean new slate to...

Jay Leno's Move to Primetime: Brilliant or Desperate?

December 9th, 2008 2:13pm EST
Jay Leno
This afternoon, NBC announced a breakthrough plan for fall 2009 that is unlike any other line-up ever produced.

It was well documented that this spring Jay Leno would be stepping down from his 16 year post at The Tonight Show. Late Night host Conan O'Brien would move into the 11:35/10:35c slot, and former SNL cast member Jimmy Fallon would be taking over for Conan on Late Night.

These moves led to speculation that Jay would in fact not be retiring, but instead ink a lucrative deal to create a new show on a competing network. With these talks moving from rumor to reality, NBC reali...

Five Shows That Suck (But Shouldn't)

November 10th, 2008 10:53am EST
Private Practice
PRIVATE PRACTICE

When Private Practice debuted in May of last year, industry bible Variety released a less than glowing review: "Private Practice isn't a full-fledged screw-up, certainly, but so far it is a serious letdown."

The tragedy of the show is that not much has changed in its second season, despite a host of enviable advantages: The medical dramedy is helmed by successful head writer/creator Shonda Rhimes, is a spinoff of Rhimes' consistently popular and buzzworthy hit Grey's Anatomy and boasts a good cast featuring that once-wildly popular Grey's character, Addison Forbes Mo...

TV: What Makes A New Show Successful?

September 22nd, 2008 11:42am EDT
Mad Men
During the 2007-2008 television season, the major networks premiered thirty-four new series, but only eleven of those shows will be coming back for a second run. This fall, a handful of new shows will take their shot at finding their audience. So, what is it that makes a show successful? What makes them fail? When it comes down to it, a show will have to have good writing for people to want to keep watching it, but it is getting the viewers to watch in the first place that is the challenging task. Of course, there are many different strategies to attract viewers and stay on the air, an...

DOA: Fall TV Most Likely To Be Canceled

September 4th, 2008 11:30am EDT
Kath & Kim
It's often difficult during a show's first season. Characters come and go, storylines are tweaked, and main players sometimes get replaced. Remember the Aunt Vivs of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" or the husband swap on "Bewitched?"

If a show hasn't proven itself early on, it's an uphill battle. After last season's writers' strike, this may be the first time viewers come to their TVs with welcomed anticipation instead of judgment for new shows. Maybe. But there are some shows that will struggle more than others:

"Kath & Kim," NBC, premieres Thursday, Oct. 9

Must See (& Must Skip) New Dramas This Fall

August 27th, 2008 8:40am EDT
My Own Worst Enemy
Christian Slater has only one facial expression. His eyebrows are permanently arched in a slightly questioning yet slightly sinister gaze; he has a five o'clock shadow that no pancake makeup ever seems to hide; and his eyes are dark and brooding, appearing beady and almost dead without the proper glint from three-point lighting.

Skip "My Own Worst Enemy"

Yet NBC's My Own Worst Enemy (Monday nights at 9 p.m. starting Oct. 13) have him playing two very distinct men: Henry, the slightly dippy family man living in pre-fab suburbia, and Edward, a Jason Bourne-esque operative for a se...
