    Gideon Raff and Tim Kring's bungled attempt to somehow dumb down Dan Brown is merely a waste of time and ample talent.

    One Big Happy gets worse and less funny as it goes.

    Strip away the name and this is the story of a man trying to tear apart an oil monopoly, which makes Dracula every bit as scary and sexy as the Sherman Antitrust Act.

    Mostly, I came away thinking that Platinum Hit is a pretty lame way to find a talented songwriter and that my chances of liking any of the music produced on the show are low. I won't be returning.

    Deutsch doesn't really have chemistry with anybody, so it isn't surprising that the scenes in Donny! that come closest to funny are the ones in which he's completely absent.

    Other pilots this fall are worse, but few are more middling.

    Through the two episodes I've seen, there are ample components that could be the basis for a good sitcom, and even the show's biggest flaw is not without potential, but the alignment is so out-of-sync that it's easier to imagine viewers tuning out at the first commercial break than sticking around for 13 or 22 episodes to see if Dr. Ken becomes the best, or even a better, version of itself.

    Maybe there is some steak to accompany this sizzle, but I wish somebody would bring it to the table already. It seems rude to extend an invitation to so many people without delivering an event.

    An ill-conceived, poorly scripted, woodenly acted mess, Cult is watchably crazy, but that's the highest praise I can give it.

    The first four episodes of Season 5 find True Blood at its most directionless and meandering.

    Nearly every character is introduced in the most repulsive way possible and then the show tries to backtrack, sell the characters out and make it seem like they're all just marshmallows.

    It isn't scary. It looks comically cheap at times. The performances range from inconsistent to fairly awful.

    Beauty and the Beast is, alas, also woefully crafted on every level.

    Mario Lopez, my name is Daniel Fienberg and your show sucks.
