    It's not only unimpressive. Parts of it are uncomfortable.

    At the very least, you'd think the Miami edition of this franchise would have some striking pastel visuals. But even the look, alas, is no brighter than the content.

    NBC has reestablished another Thursday night tradition: sticking another unfunny, almost unwatchable sitcom at 8:30.

    The network may feel that Bratt could stand there, read the phone book and attract millions of adoring female fans. Starring in "E-Ring" may be the closest thing to finding out whether that's true.

    You wish them all well. But in the end, watching the Hasselhoffs isn't much more interesting than watching a mechanic rebuild the transmission on KITT.

    Despite the best efforts of Nicole Kidman, who is operating way above the level of her material, this screwy fantasy nominally inspired by the lives of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier doesn’t even make for a good fairy tale.

    Everybody in the premiere episode of Strange Days turns out to be a nice guy or gal, and that's a great thing in life. It just doesn't make for a very strange, or interesting, TV Show.

    Until the show figures out how to make sitcom slapstick and inner-beauty melodrama work, it’s kind of a mess.

    If you think "Will & Grace" got lazy and tired after a few years, with its broad punch lines and broader plots - and you should - "Twins" accelerates the process by starting out that way.

    To make them all screwy but lovable, in the vein of "Raising Hope," requires more work than this show seems to want to do.

    The setup could be mildly amusing if it weren't more common than Starbucks.

    It may remind some viewers more directly of the British sitcom "Absolutely Fabulous," except that "Ab Fab" was hilarious and this one just gives you a headache.

    Unauthorized captures the feel-good part. Unfortunately, it misses the “written well” part. Like, completely.

    There's little talent, and even less charisma, evident in this gaggle of guys.

    There just isn't much about Bristol's life that's of much interest to anyone outside of family and friends.

    Everything in Mike's life seems contrived to set up ba-ba-boom punch lines.

    If we're going to root for these guys, however, it would help to like them. These guys don't make it easy.

    Cold-hearted and dreadful.

    "Inconceivable" is so sappy and syrupy, it's the sort of program that even the Lifetime or Oxygen networks might reject.

    There isn't a person on this show selling anything more compelling than shallow vanity.

    It’s always worth taking a shot at a shark movie. Ghost Shark just needed to be thrown back.

    The two-night miniseries "The Storm," the latest production in NBC's summer of the apocalypse, suggests the network may be running out of creative ways to terminate life as we know it.

    "Hot Properties" is such a stiff and unfunny sitcom that it's hard to imagine how it got on the air.

    In the end, it doesn't feel much more enduring than a tweet.

    If you like smart women who hide the iron fist under the velvet glove, you'll get more satisfaction elsewhere--like from, oh, say, Nikita over on the CW, who is better drama all by herself than this ill-served new trio of Angels.

    Dating shows tend to be bottom feeders in the "reality" game, but not even the oiliest episodes of "The Bachelor" have ever felt as creepy as "The Cougar."

    "Twenty Good Years" is so bad, its pilot doesn't contain 20 good seconds.

    This latest attempt at a series with glamorous young people frolicking at an even more glamorous resort doesn't demonstrate significantly more depth than its unsuccessful predecessors.
