    One of the worst murder-mysteries to come along in a while, ABC’s Secrets & Lies is completely undone by its casting and writing.

    The laugh track is far too enthusiastic for the lame attempts at comedy on display here.

    The CW's Beauty is laughably bad in myriad ways. There's no sense of star-crossed lovers, just a plasticized romance between a Cover Girl and a glum, anger-prone male model.

    Miscast and only intermittently funny, Jezebel James misfires on all cylinders.

    There's a lot that's terrible about Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp.... But this show adds additional layers of hypocrisy and silliness.

    Utterly unpleasant and unfunny, Fox's dispiriting Sons of Tucson may be the worst comedy series of a generally winning 2009-10 TV season.

    Undateable probably isn’t a show many sitcom fans will want to make a standing date to watch.

    Another single-camera comedy that fails to provide any laughs.

    Seriously lacking in laughs.

    "The Game" lacks the relationships that made "Girlfriends" a qualified UPN hit and the comedy to make it much of anything for The CW.

    • 20 Rob Owen
    It had a weak pilot to begin with, but the second episode is even more of a tedious bore.

    Obvious, dumb and mostly unfunny, One Big Happy is an embarrassment for all involved.

    No question, Hindenburg is a disaster--from start to finish.
    • 29 Metascore

    Filled with terrible dialogue.

    The pilot episode jumps all over the place without establishing characters or their relationships.... [A] failure to connect the dots is a common problem for Hemlock Grove.

    An often lighthearted medical show set in a Los Angeles fertility clinic, NBC's "Inconceivable" lacks the grit of "ER," the heart of "Scrubs" and the soapy shenanigans of "Grey's Anatomy," leaving an empty husk of a series.

    Problem is, the characters are neither likeable enough to cheer for nor despicable enough to loathe. They're just sort of unformed lumps of gray clay with a few stereotypical streaks of color.

    "October Road" is perhaps one of the most clumsily plotted, illogical drama pilots to be produced in years.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    [The pilot episode] winds up having a decent if unlikely resolution to its primary mystery. Even if it’s possible to get past the ugliness of the violence against women in the pilot, it’s hard to imagine that a procedural with such a tight focus won’t get old fast.

    Dreary and dull. ... Betrayal may depict the most boring, sullen, sad-faced affair in TV history and that in itself is a betrayal of what the show promises.

    The biggest problem with "so noTORIous" is that the laughs, when they come, are few and far between.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    Dull and plodding, "Hunters" is no reality TV treasure.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    Flash Gordon is a victim of pedestrian scripting. Worse yet, the characters are forced to spout too much exposition that betrays what should be the characters' natural reactions.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Rob Owen
    Overcooked and preposterous to the point of being laughable.
    • 27 Metascore

    Watching this one gave me a headache in about 17 minutes. You've been warned.
    • 36 Metascore

    There's exactly one funny moment in the dreadful Fox sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

    Never thought a TV comedy would leave me wistful for Silverman's NBC bomb "The Single Guy," but "In Case of Emergency" manages to do just that.

    How to be a Gentleman is exactly the kind of TV comedy Johnny Drama would be thrilled to star in.
    • 50 Metascore

    This comedy is just not funny.

    I'll give "Unan1mous" this: At least it's more efficient than some reality shows, wasting only a half-hour of a viewer's time. But that's still 30 minutes you don't have to spend wallowing in this muck.
