    Unlike "Archer" or "Sunny" or FX's "The League" and "Wilfred," Unsupervised refuses to go for the throat. And that makes it unfunny.

    Much of the writing here is dreadful; scenes go nowhere while thinly developed characters pop in and out of the action--although there is little action early on.

    You're likely to understand Fox's hesitation with The Goodwin Games after seeing the premiere, which introduces the characters and the premise, but with only a few laughs.

    [King & Maxwell] will live and die on the casting--because everything else about it feels as stale and standard as week-old white bread.

    As an exercise in recreating a noir drama, Mob City has all the trappings we've seen better in "L.A. Confidential" and other projects, but little of the thrill.

    Chozen will get more compelling once it focuses on that feud over loutish buffoonery and references to prison sex--which aren't that funny even the first five times they're made. For now, though, it simply mines the gay rapper premise for cheap laughs.

    The Glee Project feels like an exercise in ego for the folks running the show. There's a whole lot of playing to the camera going on amongst the professionals, especially from choreographer Zach Woodlee and Murphy himself.

    All in all, A Royal Romance offers some OK acting of a dull story.

    Charlie's Angels is as absurd as the original 1976-81 series that launched the careers of Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett (and her hair).

    The office gang from Free Agents is anything but funny.

    Sad to say, another round of Black Friday madness would deliver more laughs than this brainless new sitcom.

    Everything feels like a put-on; nothing seems plausible.

    Watch it to laugh, and you'll have a lot of fun.

    Seems to me she's [Alana's mother June is] desperate to stay in the spotlight. And all I can say to that is, "Honey, bye-bye."

    Liz & Dick is, simply, a joke.

    [A] stinker of a family sitcom.

    Nothing has really changed.

    I'd rather babysit a dozen children between the ages of 2 and 10 then sit through more of this.

    ABC, you can do better than this drivel you call Work It.

    Rob is clumsy and uncomfortable, not to mention completely devoid of chemistry among its actors or subtlety in their delivery of "jokes."

    Anger Management is a colossally wasted opportunity for both Sheen and FX.
