    The Protector might be worse if it were attempting to do something ambitious and failing. Instead, it's set the bar near the ground, but I guess some viewers will be satisfied to see it succeed.

    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.

    Baby Daddy has no real point of view, no real comedic voice and one very cute infant.

    It's not especially fresh material, nor is it all that nuanced, but it's peppy and occasionally clever and it offers ample eye candy for any and all tastes.

    Sharknado 2: The Second One is that kind of movie, veering more into "spoof" territory than the first one, which isn't to say that "Sharknado" was meant as high drama, but it wasn't calling attention to its absurdity in quite the same way as the sequel.

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

    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 badly acted. I don't remember any of the performances at all. It isn't horribly written. I don't remember any of the dialogue or plot machinations. It's actually nicely shot and the art direction in the U.S. Marshals' headquarters was handsome. That's not enough.

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

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

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

    Ghost Shark, in contrast [to "Sharknado"], is probably closer to 75 or 80 percent "great title," with the execution lagging behind. That may not be better than some on the Syfy slate, but it's better than many and there are moments of fun here, even if they come way too early in the movie and set Ghost Shark up for a final act that fizzles.

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

    Pretty Little Liars only has a couple more episodes to become a guilty pleasure for me. You might not believe it based on the amount of programming I watch, but I've only got room for so much bad TV.

    Fans of Larry the Cable Guy will be happy to see him do his thing in different circumstances, but they probably won't come away with much more knowledge about what makes the United States unique than they had when they started. Meanwhile, those who are Larry-ambivalent will be teased with a couple fertile situations that get thwarted by Larry's need to be Larry.
