    At times, the show careens from black humor to near tragedy and then back again.

    Judd, who serves as series co-executive producer, makes for a surprisingly convincing action hero. It's when she stops to emote in full mommy mode that the show drags.

    In its personal vignettes, Weight illuminates, but too often the segments are a numbing array of statistics from well-meaning talking heads.

    Count on Hit & Miss to find its targets.

    Elementary turns the myth into CBS' answer to "Castle," with a shade more intelligence.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    What separates this cast from just about every other real-ity show is that these people are chasing something larger than themselves, more vital to them than fame or money--that brief moment of perfection onstage, achieved after years of study and practice.

    Unlike other period dramas, notably AMC's "Mad Men" and Starz's "Magic City," Vegas doesn't cram the hour with topical references. Here, they're more subtle and jarring.

    After some demented inspiration from Jesse (Aaron Paul), Walt launches a caper so audacious, it's almost comical.
    • 74 Metascore

    Bunheads has the potential to have that cross-generational appeal. To thrive, the series must find its own tune to dance to.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    Photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders accessorizes his picture with some vintage clips, but his Face could do with fewer mouths.

    Perry proves to be adept at both the mirth and misery required by the role. Viewers, however, may be put off by a series that seems stuck like its patients in a gray zone between laughing and mourning.

    Go beyond the in-your-face, outrageous title here, and you'll find a somewhat sweet show struggling to create some real laughs.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    It's never a good sign when the main character is the least interesting player on the block. Fortunately, Empire's cast is rich enough for you to overlook that flaw.

    Once the story finds its pulse, Coma is fun, but there are a few hiccups.

    While the premise is slight, smart casting gives Ben and Kate a comedic edge.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    Plotting is not Fellowes' strength, but Downton's appeal is visual.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    There's pleasure in seeing such talented actresses bounce off each other. Woodard could probably recite Google search links and would still turn in an Emmy-caliber performance. But these flowers never fully bloom.

    In its best moments, the drama has the grit of something more likely to be found on cable channel TNT.
    • 66 Metascore

    A&E reboots the legend of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho,” but Bates Motel plays like a slow-burning riff on David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” sparked by some fascinating, nuanced performances.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    The settings never seem authentic for the Big Apple, and accents veer like partygoers after last call.... Still, Maslany shows skill in her many alternate guises, and the show has a dark sense of humor.

    The Big C doesn’t traffic in miracles, but it does deliver small pleasures worth pondering and savoring.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 67 Mark A. Perigard
    Sit through TNT’s The Hero and “72 Hours” and REELZ’s “Race to the Scene” back-to-back, you realize how much the genre lives on the tired bone marrow of “Survivor” and "The Amazing Race."

    The twist in the final moments suggests the series already could be catching a case of the stupids, in which case, no cast, no matter how talented, will be able to save this show.

    If the show can cut down on crime and focus more on the squad room silliness, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a chance of getting past probation.

    Underwood’s Ironside rolls over everyone in his life, figuratively and literally.... As flashbacks show, Ironside was shot in the back two years ago while pursuing a suspect. His ex-partner Gary (Brent Sexton) has never recovered emotionally from what happened that night.... Their prickly relationship now is the most daring part of the show.
    • 60 Metascore

    The stories aren’t quite as goofy as they could be. The series is clearly a labor of love for the creators. Still, the show has its wonderfully silly moments.

    Mob City takes its time to lock and load, but its aim ultimately improves.
    • 52 Metascore

    Garlin and McLendon-­Covey are believable as variations of “That ’70s Show’s” parents, and Gentile’s Jan Brady-style meltdowns are amusing. But Adam’s obsession with female breasts, encouraged by his grandfather “Pops” (George Segal), is creepy, considering the actor looks about 9.

    Witches of East End is the campiest hot mess on TV.

    If you dwell too much on the plot, you’ll fall into a chasm of disbelief.... Flowers doesn’t look like a Lifetime film, and that’s a compliment. The production moves at a brisk pace, and unlike the children’s predicament, never feels claustrophobic.
