    You’ll be able to spot the front-runner and eventual winner probably 10 minutes into the show.

    Creator/executive producer Kring hasn’t learned anything from seasons two through four. Heroes Reborn suffers from the same excesses that alienated viewers--too many characters, too many plot threads, too many snippets of scenes that serve to advance little but the time to a commercial break. Finally, the show seems old-fashioned.

    It's all about their attitudes, and on that front, Man Up! is a downer.

    Vivian's secrets are predictable. Judging from the first two episodes, Joanna is not much of a sleuth. Scene set-ups go nowhere. Minor characters are brought in, disposed of, and the show bumps along to another complication.

    The real reason why “Mariah’s World” seems stale is that it comes off as a TV remake of “Madonna: Truth or Dare,” and Madge did it better in 1991.

    CBS has churned out yet another lowest-common-denominator sitcom.

    Nobody registers much of a connection. What’s missing from this show is heart.

    At 60 minutes, these episodes will test even loyal fans, although some viewers will discover a new respect for Melissa, who displays patience not unlike Job in her trials. Still, Joan is her mother. Everyone else can skip the guilt trip.

    While the miniseries is more faithful to the 1941 James M. Cain novel of the same name, Todd Haynes' adaptation (he co-wrote the teleplay, directed and acted as one of the executive producers on this five-part bloated whale) is so draining, it might make you anemic.

    Madsen works hard to deliver an intimidating matriarch, but the dialogue is flat and merely functional.

    Beau resents his son for abandoning the family homestead. Rooster enjoys egging them on. The war of words can sometimes feel brutal. The work gives Kutcher a chance to truly act, to bring some pathos to the fore, but The Ranch is a slog.

    Alpha House feels like social studies homework. On a Saturday night.

    TV Land tries to build on its surprise sitcom hit "Hot in Cleveland" with Retired at 35, a spectacularly unfunny show that reflects a parent's worst nightmare: A grown child moves home for no good reason and shows no sign of budging.

    The background music works muscularly to pump up interest, but the story's pacing is ponderous.

    Where Ties unravels is in its other half, as it desperately tries to be a gritty police procedural.

    As vital as it is, political strategizing just isn’t that engaging to watch.

    Gore-hounds will find a couple of visual shots fascinating, but there’s little here for anyone to justify the hour investment.

    The sitcom starts with one of the best introductions to a group of losers. By the end of the third episode Fox provided for review, I was yawning and daydreaming about buying nail fungus remover.

    Finally you get the sense that Meryl Streep's daughter is coming into her own as an actress and even a lead. But Emily needs a script doc, stat.

    Party Down, about a group of aspiring Hollywood types working as caterers, returns for a second season of stale jokes.

    The Good Place,” from “Parks and Recreation” creator Michael Schur, is the true heir to “Lost,” right down to the flashbacks, half-baked philosophy and Colorforms-simple metaphors.

    Every character has a voice-over, info dumps for back story that are either irksome or unnecessary.
    • 61 Metascore

    It’s a series that zips along in one direction, suddenly accelerates in another and veers out of control into a swamp of sugar and schmaltz.

    ABC’s midseason replacement How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) is dumb and crass. That would be fine if it were at all funny.

    Traffic Light is the kind of sitcom that revs from zero to zero with laughter.

    Thornton seems to be playing against script. His Billy seems to be thoroughly enjoying himself, despite the dire circumstances he finds himself in. It’s about the only surprise in Goliath. By the end of the second episode, it becomes obvious there are forces in play that will stop at nothing to thwart Billy’s quest for answers.

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

    What’s odd here is that even with the influx of injured, Chicago Med never builds any dramatic heat.

    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.

    The maestro behind “Sons of Anarchy” returns to FX with this over-the-top gorefest that tries to outdo both “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” for spectacle.
