    If you're looking for light summer entertainment, search elsewhere. But you won't find anything more invigoratingly original on TV.

    Rugrats is such a witty, original show parents don't mind watching it with their children.

    The storytelling structure isn't just artiness for artiness' sake. Instead, it ingeniously reflects the fractured nature of investigations.

    The jail's real breakout stars remain Lee Tergesen and J.K. Simmons as Tobias Beecher and Vern Schillinger.

    King has turned out to be a near-perfect synthesis of Seinfeld and [Everybody Loves] Raymond, recombining many of the best elements of each show into something wholly, delightfully new.

    Since it takes place in the streets instead of in a sterile operating room, Third Watch feels even more adrenaline-charged than ER.

    'Model' has been tops in quality among the summer's post-'American Idol' talent shows because it requires no actual talent.

    Lopez wrings genuine laughs out of ... gentle one-liners, and his show benefits from the appealing presence of Constance Marie (Tortilla Soup) as his wife, Angie.

    Law & Order has survived drastic cast changes, but can Murder One pull off the same trick? Judging from 'Chapter One' of the second season, the verdict is a definite maybe.

    When the sitcom premiered last year, Danson seemed ill-cast as a politically incorrect Bronx doctor. Yet he's settled into the role gracefully. ... Although Becker still represents a steep drop-off in quality from its lead-in, Everybody Loves Raymond, its condition has been upgraded to watchable.

    Between high-profile guest stars and full-time additions to the staff, the drama's County General has become so jam-packed with new characters that some long-standing stars are being elbowed aside.

    In its fourth season, Nash should be a smooth-running machine, and with his crinkled, slightly sleazy charm, Johnson does have an easygoing chemistry with Cheech Marin as his wisecracking partner. Yet so far [Yasmine] Bleeth has seemed like a third wheel.

    It might help if the South Park kids had personalities, but they're as one-dimensional as the show's cut-and-paste animation.

    It's time for the Baywatch hunks to hang up their trunks.

    Pizza Place strains to be a fresh twentysomething sitcom a la Friends, but its scripts, overseen by Mad About You cocreator Danny Jacobson, are chockful of stale allusions to Linda Ronstadt and the Apple Dumpling Gang.

    Watching Cosby coast through this subpar sitcom, it's hard not to conclude that, like Hilton, it may be time for him to hang it up.
