    "Lord of the Flies"-meets-a-telephone book, and just about as entertaining.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    This is a shame and a waste of three gorgeous actresses, a wonderful actor (Gross) and an idea that--with a little more wit, smarter writing and less soap--could have yielded a winner.

    Pilkington's musings are sometimes amusing and always pointless, but the animation almost totally nullifies the first and intensifies the second.

    • 42 Verne Gay
    A couple of the lines are surprisingly offensive, and a couple others even surprisingly amusing.

    • 42 Verne Gay
    The Unusuals is not a good show; it is a messy, uneven, silly, inconsequential show.

    • 42 Verne Gay
    This series boasts some reasonably high production values, certainly for Comedy Central, with lots of energy, and a sense that it knows where it's going and how to get there. But the tone is so relentlessly mean-spirited, the guys so unlikable, their predicament so pathetic that Big Time deflates before your very eyes.

    Even with endless talk about genitalia and the things people can do to them, The League is surprisingly dull and slack - without snap or payoff.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Bland, with no pop or energy, Scoundrels limps sadly along.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    [Robinson] is funny, and there are fleeting reminders of that.... Then it all goes sour, and flat.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    This is a very good cast laboring through terribly weak material.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    With feet of clay, Aquarius plods relentlessly toward a climax everyone already knows, while making just enough fictional detours to make the journey truly exasperating.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    There's some charm here, but it's as fleeting as a tweet.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Reminiscent of “Chico and the Man” (the mid-’70s NBC sitcom about a cranky garage owner and his Chicano employee), but it also aspires to a contemporary relevance--but manages only a weary crustiness.

    You hope for a laugh, pray for one, then give up. To be fair, tonight's pilot runs fast (19 minutes) and feels more like a "sizzle reel" than a fully formed show. Williams, at least, is a genius, and maybe he'll get the time to turn this into something worth watching.

    • 42 Verne Gay
    Get past the mawkishness (if you can) and there's a sweetness here, and geniality. The Michael J. Fox Show needs to be much more, but love is hard to shake.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    What's fascinating is just how ruthlessly it has been edited, or (more likely) re-edited since the breakup to turn you-know-who into Little Ms. Perfect.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    [Neil Patrick Harris was] hampered here by a format that might work better on daytime TV than at night, and better in the U.K. than here, and by gimmicks that seem more in step with the Velveeta spirit of "America's Got Talent," and by a show that's almost willfully aggravating, he may have met his match with Best Time Ever.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    A frustrating film that leaves the questions--pretty much all of them--unanswered.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    A grim, macabre march through a terrible crime, deploying a bad twist--the voice of the deceased.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Some amusing lines, but otherwise a disappointing misfire.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    The pilot has some funny moments, but after that, Kirstie starts to flatline.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Sure, The Cougar is idiotic--these shows always are. That's a large part of their appeal. But casting fouled up here.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Talky, tired, tame Crisis is a misfire.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Orange" is a slog, where minutes seem to stretch into hours, hours into days ... and the drip, drip, drip of prison time becomes its own reality.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Amusing and harmless, but even Andy Cohen can’t raise the dead.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    This feels more like a rushed afterthought by Fox instead of a fully developed premise that could carry a pair of seasoned actors to their retirement, or at least to a big payday.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Satire administered with a Wiffle ball bat. A dull thud, where there should be a sting.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Buckwild isn't offensive as much as just boneheaded--almost as much "Jackass" as "Shore."
    • 46 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    Unsupervised is a cheerier, less nihilistic "Beavis and Butt-head Lite," and not remotely as funny or trenchant.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 42 Verne Gay
    A paint-by-the-numbers biopic with the dramatic vitality of a tree stump.
