    Despite the loud music and all the supposedly ominous foolishness, blood that even spatters the camera lenses, and a sexy proto-vamp who often manages to wear almost no clothes (OK, maybe not despite her), I kind of liked the stupid thing.

    A genius idea so diluted by imitation that it becomes hard to watch.

    CBS's new spy spoof, CHAOS, which premieres Friday at 8 p.m., starts out in the hole by knocking the amiable and amusing "The Defenders" off the schedule, and it never crawls out all the way. At least, it's something different, unless you count a show that was on 47 years ago, or a lot of the ones on USA.

    It delivers only a couple of brown bears and virtually no entertainment, but plenty of Palin, Palin, and more Palin.

    It's ugly and bloated, too, bringing back memories of tawdry times, tasteless fashion and terrible music.

    Our gals will turn out to be witches, and while they are innocuously enjoyable (as well as hot), it's hard to imagine them generating enough magic to keep this show around very long.

    Filmed in New Orleans, the show does have an authentic look, but as a cop drama, it's so hackneyed and ham-handed, it's not even funny.

    The show would be better if it got a little closer to the ground, but Wilde, with unusually beautiful production values (for a sitcom), completes a one-hour, laugh track-free, absurdist block that gives Fox its best chance at comedy success since The Bernie Mac Show and Malcolm in the Middle.

    It's doubtful that Oprah's Big Give would have ever made it to the air without Oprah, but (Wrong No. 1) don't go expecting the diva of the heartstrings to be hosting this exploitative (Wrong No. 2) jumble (Wrong No. 3). She turns up now and then, to cheerlead and oversell (Wrong No. 4), but the real host (Wrong No. 5) is one of her minions, Nate Berkus. More wrongs to come, but you'll have to keep track for yourself.

    Individually and as a team, Townsend and Union exhibit less chemistry than a third-grade science set.

    There's tons of trouble in Jericho, and that starts with T and that rhymes with D and that stands for dumb. Not flat-footedly, spectacularly dumb, just a little bit too dumb to live up to its premise.

    It's pretty easy to qualify as worst series of the year when the year is less than a week old, but ABC's yucky Cashmere Mafia sets the limbo bar so low, only the slackest skeevy show could slither under it before the ball next drops Dec. 31.

    These medical shows aren't brain surgery, but most of them are dead on arrival anyway. Three Rivers shows up at least with a healthy pulse.

    You hope the show doesn't get stuck in sexual shenanigans week after week. Even 30-year-olds think about other things sometimes. But for now, it seems fair to follow Emily's lead and see what develops.

    It's a show-off show, the most impressive new series of the season, of many seasons, but it has one big deficit. Like the Tin Man, it has no heart. Maybe it will grow one, and it will certainly bear watching for a few weeks to see if it does. [22 Sept 1999, p.C01]

    Their recently divorced characters have all the stereotypical sitcom tsuris, plus she's engaged to their marriage counselor--ho, ho--who turns out to be Ed Begley Jr., who actually is a little funny. As is Ryan Malgarini, who plays Gary's son, who at 14 is more confused about females than his dad. He's the best part of the show.

    The show has some hilarious moments and perks along between them as you might expect a Drescher show to. It's a fine and frothy companion to the big show on TV Land (is that an oxymoron?) at 10 p.m. Wednesday, the Betty White-starrer Hot in Cleveland.

    One of this season's best new series.

    Valentine puts a modern twist on family drama that's edgy and fun without being overwrought or vulgar.

    Hill is terribly hokey. Half-brother basketball wizards compete for hoops and girls, as their alienated parents battle. The West Wing's Moira Kelly, as mom to the poor boy, is the only actor who shows any scope on the show. [22 Sept 2003, p.C09]

    Careful viewing reveals that American customs bear the brunt of most of the gentle humor of this series that should fit seamlessly into NBC's goofballs-at-the-office (or in-the-classroom) Thursday-night sitcom block.

    Everything's so shrill and flat, it's hard to tell when the writing stops and the improvisation begins.

    It's amazing there's no orthopedist, since the show's so lame.

    The big mysteries behind the trees in Hidden Palms are also way more fun than the mud in the murky waters of Dawson's Creek. That's not a lot, but pondering the extent of evil in the bad boy, and the cause of the craziness in the gorgeous girl, not to mention why the dead kid died, is considerably more stimulating than it was years ago to put the TV on mute and gawk when Katie Holmes came on the screen.

    It's a swell story, if sometimes grim.

    [A] silly new soap.

    Not only do you get insufferable comedy, but phony drama, too.

    [Lopez would] be a lot more sympathetic if he didn't keep making weird bug-eyes...But that annoyance pales when George's mother, Benny (Belita Moreno), enters the scene. In addition to being shrill, demeaning and contemptuous of her son, she's unnaturally fixated on his manhood. There's something funny about their relationship, all right, but it sure doesn't generate laughs. [27 Mar 2002]

    Life Is Wild, is serenely benign considering its title, but some families should find fun in this foolishness from far away.

    [Episode 2's] Jenna, we learn, has basically been drunk since January, which is probably a pretty good condition for anyone who wants to get real laughs out of The Loop.
