    It’s all cut and spliced to the point where any real “jeopardy” involved is anyone’s guess. The weekly competitions on Survivor are far more convincingly presented.

    Darkly shot and dimly plotted, the premiere episode never comes close to firming its grip. It instead plods and meanders, inviting viewers to invest elsewhere rather than buy into this poorly put-together jumble of something or other.

    Stalker at best is an unsavory blend of violent crime, voyeurism and by-the-book preachments just in case you aren’t getting its “messages.”

    Drescher still looks good a dozen years removed from the last season of The Nanny. But the lines coming from her mouth are too obvious for words.

    Life Sentence has an off-putting preciousness to it while grinding through one “crisis” after another. It doesn’t earn any sympathies because its principal characters don’t merit much more than one big “Oh, shaddup!” With the exception, perhaps, of poor Wes.

    This low-rent knockoff of the estimable 1960 movie is a sleep--inducing, cliche-choked, rope-a-dopey slowpoke starring a buncha no-names substituting for the likes of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn. We haven't seen markdowns of this magnitude since Sears fire-saled its entire line of Johnny Miller menswear. [3 Jan 1998]

    Roseanne's Nuts is her way of taking a dump in your living room.

    Sullivan & Son is utterly artless in its efforts to be an equal opportunity offender.

    Dads is just a senseless pounding of sensibilities, a beat-down without any saving graces.

    Life's A Tripp in reality is nothing more than another Lifetime stumble.

    Nothing about this latest re-do offers any hope for its future.

    Virtually every joke lands with a resounding thud.

    All of this unfolds with complete and utter predictability amid a “Take my wife, please” collection of broad, flat, dated jokes delivered with a sledge hammer’s touch by Kevin and his coarse, chub-a-lub pals.

    The only thing keeping Luis from a flat-out F-grade is its employment of a multi-ethnic cast. That's commendable on the face of it, although under these circumstances all involved might be better off unseen.

    Preposterous, ridiculously earnest, poorly scripted and laughably acted, this is the series that Anthony Edwards chose to re-enter prime-time after a long tenure as one of ER's main men. He should've stayed in bed.

    Less funny than a compound fracture, this is a show that looks irreparably broken.

    Those looking for depth will find none. Liz & Dick triumphs, however, as an amusement park for fans of the deeply dreadful.

    The first episode is just too relentlessly clunky and stupid.

    In the annals of all-time worst game shows, this one takes its rightful place alongside ABC's Conveyor Belt of Love, which soiled prime-time back in January 2010.

    Unfocused, unfunny and all together unbearable, Perfect Couples at least affords NBC a chance to hit rock bottom before the new owners begin their massive cleanup effort.

    Their all-that activities become redundant and tiresome at WARP speed, raising the overall question of whether watching Ja’mie: Private School Girl on a continuous loop would be worse than eternal burning in hell.

    A ridiculous and desperate effort to generate some buzz about its carrier, the wee little WE tv network.

    Brain-dead male teens without any social skills or purpose in their lives might find this a highly entertaining diversion from their violent video games.

    Plodding and stupefying when it's not being laughable and poorly acted, this is entertainment fit for an alternative to water-boarding.

    This is a messy disposable diaper of a comedy series whose star plays himself without any idea of how to act or write the part.

    The star of this ill-conceived show, which also features former congressional policy advisor Matt Stoller as a very uncomfy foil, completely fails to get untracked from halting start to grinding finish.

    This series is a complete mis-fire. There are no relatable characters, every joke's a dud and Slater seems to have no earthly idea what's befallen him.
