    Maybe some day someone will give some stay-at-home dads some respect. This show isn’t it.

    Seduced is many things: a funny road trip, a canny look at Cannes and the industry, a conversation with directors about their epic battles to get their masterpieces on screen. If it had stuck to one idea, it might have made a terrific documentary.

    Creator Byron Balasco’s sense of pacing seems off, as if he’s trying to figure out the direction as he goes along. The dialogue, too, runs in laps. If I had to listen to Grillo bark, “Relax!” one more time, I might punch my own TV. But with actors such as Lauria and Jonas driving the drama, Kingdom may yet rise.

    Unfortunately, the drama between Federline and Jackson seems to be about the only reason to tune in, making this serving of “Fit Club” especially tasteless.

    If you like your comedy slathered in crude, this sitcom is catnip. Everyone else will wonder if CBS stopped making shows with recognizable human beings when “Everybody Loves Raymond” went off the air.

    If there were a Match.com for sitcoms, this show would be blocked, banned and forgotten.

    The players seem to spend much of their time entering and exiting the same drab offices while shoveling exposition at one other.

    Unfortunately, the pilot doesn't flesh out the premise, making the episode little more than an average "Outer Limits." With all the special-effects possibilities of a virtual realm, "Santiago City" looks like the set of "Combat" with a high-tech fence around it. [8 Oct 1999, p.S34]

    Betas brims with raunch, perhaps in the belief that it is key to hooking younger viewers.­

    He seemed nervous in a rapid-fire monologue that took shots at Dick Cheney, Alan Greenspan and Tiger Woods.

    Perception is a head trip not worth the journey.

    Sean Saves the World actually left this viewer depressed about the health of network comedy.

    From pariahs to parodies. What a quick ride. The party is almost over for Jersey Shore.

    It’s wearying to watch actors of this caliber try to fluff laughs out of this dreariness.

    The ladies are so desperate to be noticed, they recycle bits from other shows.
    • 59 Metascore

    One problem with the show is intrinsic to its premise. Though mediation is valuable in the real world, it doesn't lead itself to interesting stories in a medium that chugs on conflict, victims and victors.

    There’s no way to self-medicate against the relentless drear of this new medical drama.

    As a sitcom version of herself, the onetime “American Idol” outshines Gellar, which is not a good omen for the show. Williams seems ex­hausted. So is this show.

    Kidman works hard here, but she is sabotaged by a common script.

    Not even a return to Sin City - the site of the most notorious, debauched entry in the franchise - can jump-start any excitement into this, the 25th season of the unscripted series.

    It's a dull blend, a slow-moving mind-rot creeping on unsuspecting viewers.

    The unscripted answer to "Laverne & Shirley" will now be tamer than "Anne of Green Gables."

    My Generation is based on a Swedish series, "On God's Highway." Dramatic storytelling seems to have veered off the road and crashed into a tree.

    The humor is crude and risque and often at the expense of Indian culture. I could have lived without the defecation jokes. To be fair, the writers don't give America a pass.

    There are some adorable tots mugging hard on NBC's Guy with Kids. The adults muck it all up.

    [Smallville's Erica Durance, Stargate SG-1's Michael Shanks and The Vampire Diaries' Daniel Gillies] should be a winning cast, but the writing and plodding execution are worthy of a quick DNR order.

    From Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Anne Heche comes this mostly numb comedy about a judge with a messy personal life.

    The slight sitcom has all the heft of a powder puff.

    In this eight-episode, hourlong show, instead of Lauren Conrad, we get Katie, who is about as interesting as a McDonald’s salad.

    The Gates is ultimately just another literary mashup with the undead, like Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" tweaked with zombies, only here it's a stifling John Cheever story with bloodsuckers.
