    Rest easy. Scrubs is just fine (with all cast members, except Jenkins, back), though the opening episode is superior to the follow-up.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    This remains an intelligent, well-made drama that wants to get most of the history right, or at least not adulterate it too much.... But, alas, same virtues, same flaws.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Information tumbles off the screen and often flat onto the floor. Too bad, because much of what's here is very funny, if occasionally cruel.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Absent the overworked conceit of actors glancing at the camera to register annoyance or irony, this has turned into just another well-produced cop show with some excellent actors, like Imperioli or James McDaniel, who plays Det. Jesse Long and played Lt. Arthur Fancy on "NYPD Blue."

    • 75 Verne Gay
    Competent soap, and the new season is frothier than ever.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Yes, indeed, a love letter this is, but 41 is better than rank puffery because it also takes the full measure of Bush.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A not-bad techno-thriller that could go interesting places.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    An amusing and not-bad game show; Bailey makes it bearable.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Noble intentions meet nice people.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Vikings quickly settles into a fairly routine sword-and-sandal epic narrative that revolves around a sociopath overlord and the subjects who dare to challenge his authority. But it gets better.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The early part of the third may not be as good as the first season or stretches of the second, but for a few million anxiously awaiting Sunday, it's still good enough.

    Heights almost feels like atonement for the biggest hit in MTV history. The kids don't swear (much), esteem their elders, work at their dreams and have no obvious or debilitating vices--until they drink.

    • 75 Verne Gay
    Unassuming Longmire doesn't shout "LOVE ME!" but instead works its charms subtly, quietly.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    I wanted to love Fringe, with its extraordinary pedigree and exotic, soulful Australian beauty Torv in the lead role, and splendid Noble in key support. Plus, Blair Brown's here, too, as a top exec at an evil corporation. But I just can't shake this word "derivative."
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    This is pure kiddie fare; no big deal--Chuck's back; TV's a better place.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A baffling, beautiful, maddening, provocative puzzle.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    This intelligent, sensitive portrait effectively explores a lost childhood and remarkable mind. It's engrossing to a point, then tiresome.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Gritty, jarring, profane and smartly produced.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A partially successful reboot, with less music, more story.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Suffice it to say, keep the kids away, but you will laugh - and feel guilty about it afterward.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Still absorbing. Still painful.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    No one wants this show to channel "24," but C-SPAN won't do either. For the most part, however, Madam Secretary charts a steady--and intelligent--middle course.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Filmed in New Orleans, Coven wants to soak up some atmosphere, bowdlerize some local history and otherwise creep out viewers. At least on these three points, this season should easily score.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Lively pilot, with plenty of pop--but you've seen it all before.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    While you're left to wonder why these four stars need a reality show, or why the contestants never truly made it in the first place, "The Voice" should remain a solid performer for NBC--which it so very badly needs.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Monday's pilot can't quite close the sale, but there's promise here. The Chicago Code deserves another look.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    A well-produced film that is ultimately more painful than conclusive.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    In blunt and at times salty language, Bush gets to say exactly what 9/11 meant to him; it's visceral but only occasionally revelatory. We all know this story very well. Maybe too well.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Kings is a worthy enterprise that will deeply puzzle millions of viewers.

    The Closer may be the most comfortable old shoe on all of television; slip it on and be assured of no blisters. In fact, the cast (and not just Sedgwick) is so competent, the characters' tics so familiar; and the format and formula so firmly etched in "ceeement" (as Brenda might say) that it all feels almost too comfy.
