    "Family Guy" fans, prepare to be disappointed: "American Dad" looks a lot like its predecessor, but it lacks the zing and smarts that made "Family Guy" a cult hit. [1 May 2005]

    "Lil' Bush" aims for the political satire of "The Daily Show" and the crude-but-smart humor of "South Park" but fails to live up to both standard-bearers.

    Ramsay is mean to the point of being unlikable. ... But viewers who like their reality shows with a dash of nastiness may revel in just how cruel he can be. [29 May 2005]

    It's easy to root for the very watchable Greer, both as the underdog and as a charming actress who deserves a better script.

    At times, it's overboard and maybe a bit giggle-inducing, like watching little kids play dress-up. But overboard is exactly where Gossip Girl wants to be--and what viewers must embrace when taking the guilty plunge.

    The characters of Cashmere are utterly lacking in that quality, and it's not long before their self-absorption and selfishness become unbearable.

    All the slick production values and some decent music in Nashville can't make up for these one-dimensional subjects, and their angst over their fledgling careers grows tiresome.
