    Suffice it to say, keep the kids away, but you will laugh - and feel guilty about it afterward.

    Still absorbing. Still painful.

    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.

    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.

    Lively pilot, with plenty of pop--but you've seen it all before.

    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.

    Monday's pilot can't quite close the sale, but there's promise here. The Chicago Code deserves another look.

    A well-produced film that is ultimately more painful than conclusive.

    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.

    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.

    Tere's real promise in Parenthood. In time, we may all genuinely care whether Crosby and Sarah find themselves, or at least grow up.

    Sontag, simply put, was a very interesting person, who fully inhabited some interesting times--which this film captures. But as to that genuine, lasting impact? Who knows: Regarding is so busy trying to capture this busy life, that it never gets around to an answer.

    You may hate yourself for laughing--just don't be too surprised if and when you do.
    • 53 Metascore

    Surprise! Crusoe's good, and by "good" I mean competently produced and acted.
    • 70 Metascore

    The X Factor is a hugely entertaining endeavor full of malarkey, good performances (and bad), and enough momentum to keep you engaged from the first overblown second to the last.

    Dogs is a perfectly pleasant show based on the perfectly reasonable proposition that dogs are people, too.

    Knox is neither absolved nor condemned, and you'll end up with more questions that you began with. But pay close attention: There are many telling little details throughout.
    • 66 Metascore

    It could easily be mean and cynical, but manages to avoid both fatal pitfalls because the finalists are so genuinely enthusiastic and so blissfully uncomprehending of their shortcomings.
    • 60 Metascore

    Yes, this is all very familiar--Sundance's "The Returned" was better, by the way--but there are still solid hints of an engaging series.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    There's plenty of heart here--and some very sharp writing and acting, too.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The problem with Jackie is that split personality--drama or comedy. What's funny here is funny, like last season's final seconds. There aren't enough moments that remind you when to laugh.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The show can be messy and confusing--a headlong rush to who-knows- where-or-why at times. But those clones keep it grounded.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Good, cleanly told newcomer that can be a bit pokey.
    • 69 Metascore

    Often profane and occasionally offensive, Louie won't be to every viewer's taste, but it's a more interesting show than many with a definitive point of view.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Intelligent adaptation absent the dark humor, satire--or horror--of the original.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The formula's a little too familiar, the pilot a tad dull. But Michalka's a big talent and for that reason, Hellcats has potential.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    The Girl is getting older, but there's still pleasure to be had on the final lap.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    All dark shadows and gloom, there's a comic-book vigor to the series, and the narrative contortion of a soap.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Verne Gay
    Good performances, good period details, good payoff. But Restless would've worked better as a two-hour film.
