    Big talent meets weak script and every TV crime cliche known to prime time.

    Let's hope Rules is just a misguided piece of fluff that disappears after a dozen episodes - and not a bellwether series trying to tell us something about how our lives have changed for the worse.

    I swear I have no idea what The Guardian is supposed to be about. But I don't think the producers or CBS do, either. [25 Sept 2001, p.3E]

    It is one of the worst sitcoms on the air.

    Secret Diary is a nonstop glamorization of prostitution.

    This show doesn't deserve a spot in daytime syndication, let alone a key position in prime time. I am serious, there were better game shows on in the 1950s when budgets were miniscule, technology was primitive and few producers yet knew how to use the medium of television.

    It is both bad and offensive in its depiction of some of the workers at a small hotel.

    I will waste little time on the wretched Lennon production: Lennon Naked, a Masterpiece Contemporary airing Sunday night on PBS. I write this only to warn viewers off of wasting even 10 minutes of TV time and their lives with this sorry docu-drama that follows Lennon through his Beatles fame and into his marriage to Yoko Ono and the end of the band.
