  1. As in season 1, the acting is rich and lusty, with no costume-drama fustiness. [15 Jan 2007, p.33]
    • People Weekly
  2. [Perry] effortlessly brings out King's sorrow and even rage--[but] it loses something when thrown in with Go On's overly broad comedy. [13 Aug 3012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  3. A sitcom that veers uncomfortably between charmingly cute and cloyingly sarcastic. [1 Oct 2012, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  4. It's a light, clever performance. But Episodes never convinces us this is really Hollywood. [17 Jan 2011, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  5. [Believing Rachel Zoe is extremely deadpan] makes her company more enjoyable as she goes about her business--developing the label, hiring staff--without much more outward joy than Christopher Walken. [12 Sep 2011, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  6. It's pleasant enough--and thankfully it's not zany. The problem is that Danson's crisis is believable midlife comedy, while the patients' neuroses are closer to stock. [9 Oct 2006, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  7. Copper lacks the brains or kick to lift it above being a period piece. [10 Sep 2012, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  8. Even with Steven Spielberg listed among the executive producers, this distant world doesn't inspire much awe. [3 Oct 2011, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  9. This show dilutes Paul Fisher's personality. [23 Jan 2012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  10. The show itself is standard construction, a framework of planks that will need more work. [6 May 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  11. Until, and unless, all the elements fall into place, it's more smush than smash. [18 Feb 2013, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  12. The writing could use some gloss--it's Will & Grace with no grace--but Drescher still knows how to deploy her honking rasp and Higgins has exceptional comic skills. [2 Apr 2012, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  13. This is just a nice, basic reality project. [2 Apr 2012, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  14. A gauzy, pretty documentary. [18 Feb 2013, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  15. The show is technically flawless--so is Macy strutting like a mangy Mick Jagger--but the Gallaghers' raucous, defiant pride never really engages me. [20 Feb 2012, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  16. By and large, they all seem to know exactly how to play to the camera and signal they're in on this nonsense. That gives Princesses a thin but distinct edge. [10 Jun 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  17. This portrait of Prince William's courtship of Kate Middleton is better than April's plucky Lifetime movie. [29 Aug 2011, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  18. For now, apart from the Underwoods, it's underwhelming. [17 Feb 2014, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  19. The ensemble remains perfect, but the show's matter-of-fact crispness has been dulled. [22 Apr 2013, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  20. The one thing lacking is writing that goes beyond fondness into truly funny. [17 Feb 2014, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  21. To work, this overheated alchemy needs a magnetic Leo, but Tom Riley is miscast--too smart-alecky and brash. [13 May 2013, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  22. We waste a lot of time on her gigs--not unusual for this kind of show, but we've seen it time after time. [14 Jan 2013, p.52]
    • People Weekly
  23. An entertaining big-narrative concept. [5 Sep 2005, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  24. This sitcom has the high-tech antics of Chuck and the misfit camaraderie of Community-not bad, but no breakthrough. [2 May 2011, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  25. The Most natural thing here is Palin's effortless command of the camera. In That Regard, the show is fascinating. [22 Nov 2010, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  26. [The mentor-judges are] so blandly polite they may as well be ordering skinny lattes at Starbucks. [18 Jun 2012, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  27. The show is light, viewer-friendly entertainment, but without the conceptual novelty that gives USA dramas their oomph. [20 Jun 2011, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  28. [Now in season 2]Courtney Cox's sitcom...is a light, fast show about friends and couples who hang together, banter together and drink together. [8 Nov 2010, p.40]
    • People Weekly
  29. The endless sex jokes, most of them uttered expertly by deadpan Dennings to bubbly Behrs, are a pain. [12 Nov 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  30. This is all well done, and it's a great-looking production, but the weight of the drama keeps tugging toward a side plot about Braugher's 14-year-old stepdaughter. [10 Apr 2006, p.35]
