and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
. "Damages" pulls one of the best performances Glenn Close
has ever given.
. It had its time, and now it needs to go for the same reasons as "Desperate Housewives."
: The lack of new programming.
Other shows on the network: Rescue Me
, Sons of Anarchy
: Mad Men
: Like FX, the lack of new shows. Breaking Bad
is also not as cohesive as it should be if it is second to "Mad Men."
: Possibly The Prisoner
, a mini-series premiering in November starring Ian McKellen
and Jim Caviezel
: True Blood
. While its ratings have improved substantially, it should be ranked higher in HBO's history than Sex And The City
. Bored to Death
also looks incredibly promising.
: Not putting new episodes of "True Blood" up on Amazon or iTunes for purchase as the season airs. You want to see better numbers? This is how it's done.
: It will be incredibly difficult to match Alan Ball
's True Blood run.
Other shows on the network: Curb Your Enthusiasm
: The eventual demise of Dexter
: Nurse Jackie
if it doesn't find its tone.
Other shows on the network: Californication
: Party Down
. It is one of the best dark comedies on television and a definite hit for Rob Thomas. If you loved Veronica Mars
you can sit and watch each episode playing a 'find the Veronica Mars' actor' drinking game; although you may want to consider using soda to avoid alcohol poisoning. Jane Lynch
's performance in the first season was incredible. Lynch is being replaced in the second season by Megan Mullally
, as she is currently working on Fox's "Glee."
: The lack of marketing for "Party Down."
