    It's all standard Schumer stuff, and nothing fans haven't sort of heard before, or maybe laughed at before, or cringed at before, or seen elements of before (her 2012 Comedy Central special). Those fans should be pleased. As usual, everyone else will be appalled.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A competent, connect-the-dots procedural that never offers much of a case for why a remake was needed.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Not so much scandalous as scandalously dull.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Yes, offensive, but the second episode loses that element, which suggests Fox got the message. Not surprisingly, it's the better of the two.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Perception is both clever and ridiculous.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Singleton’s first TV series has a nice retro vibe, but otherwise not much action, not much originality, and not much wallop.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    After Spartacus blows most of its special-effects budget on the pilot, it settles into a not-bad sword-and-sandal genre series, a la "Xena" or "Hercules."

    Some excellent special effects are in Monday night's episode, but nothing particularly shocking because it's become abundantly clear by now that The Dome can do any damn thing The Dome--or the writers--want.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    What's missing is passion, joy and (ultimately) interest.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Not great comedy, but hopefully the beginning of long overdue recovery process for a talented, troubled actor.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    These too-timid re-enactments, punctuated with the occasional burst of VFX gunfire, are interspersed with some informative commentary by real experts like veteran mob reporter Selwyn Raab and dramatically less informative observations by actors like Vincent Pastore, who of course played a mobster on TV.

    • 58 Verne Gay
    Oddly amusing and amusingly odd.

    Hap and Carla are certainly a great-looking couple, standing in the shadow of the North Dakota Rockies. What they're not is a heightened version of Blake and Alexis Colby Carrington, the sort of heights I was really hoping for here.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nothing much new here (based on the first hour), but Remini appears resolute, tough-talking and potentially formidable.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    As a family, they are particularly eager to convey a sense of normalcy, but Sister Wives still doesn't have much interest in exploring the religious underpinnings or larger ethical questions of this anything-but-normal lifestyle. You're left without a solid clue why the Browns--all five of them--have gone to this much trouble.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Good-looking--also lethargic, languid, listless and a little bit lifeless--at least in the early going.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Sarah Palin's Alaska is part-travelogue, part-"Todd and Sarah Plus Eight," part-slick political infomercial, and part Mark Burnett hokum - and oddly fascinating for all those reasons.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Nice looking, but not nearly enough action.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Allegiance is a curious duck, indeed. Smart and sophisticated certainly, but -- occasionally--a bit dim-bulbed and hokey, too.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    At least Take Me Out has plenty of energy and camp.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    In the pilot, some of the lines even find their mark--assuming the intended mark are sites like BuzzFeed, Digg, Cracked, Reddit, Upworthy and so on. But the millennial jokes quickly grow stale, along with their “what is it with these kids” setups.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    A prime-time soap that wants to be harder-edged than “Empire,” but instead manages to be less fun.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The Bomb is a headlong-rush past the milestones and guideposts of this history, rarely pausing to explore their deeper consequences or meaning, while offering just a nod now and then to enduring controversies, or acknowledging--though barely exploring--the huge personalities that shaped this history, such as Robert Oppenheimer. The actual science is almost completely ignored.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    The show juggled a lot of storylines last night, maybe too many, but the vibe feels right. "90210" is not a disaster, and the CW can now officially let out a deep ... sigh ... of relief.

    Falco--as always--remains one of TV's bright shining lights, but her Nurse Jackie suddenly feels like a work in progress.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Thin, flavorless high school gruel, but the lead bad boy is intriguing.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Headaches will be induced just in trying to unravel the plot mess Bon Temps finds itself in. At least this will be the last headache.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    It's all weirdly engrossing.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    Still sweet and sad, but often dour and slow, too.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Verne Gay
    We already know too much and paradoxically too little about the JFK assassination. A TV movie needed to tell us something we don't know. No dice here.
