  1. The show is fueled with so much soap-operatic hot air that it takes off. [26 Sep 2011, p.54]
    • People Weekly
  2. An old-fashioned sitcom.
  3. One of the fall's best new dramas. [26 Nov 2012, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  4. Girl has a surprisingly casual sense of humor and Anna Silk is physically just right in the lead role. [13 Feb 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  5. The show promises to be sexy fun. [6 Sep 2010, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  6. Chef remains the model for cook-off competitions, balancing casual insight into culinary art with psychological snapshots of the aspiring chefs. This recipe can't be improved on.
    • People Weekly
  7. The animated duo have returned, as dumb--and hilarious--as ever. [31 Oct 2011, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  8. The show is The Odd Couple redefined by psychosis and whimsy. I'm not wagging my tail. [27 Jun 2011, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  9. The show is cluttered with cutesy sidekicks, including Gabourey Sidibe as a student and John Benjamin Hickey as Cathy's homeless brother. But Linney's a big deal. [30 Aug 2010, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  10. The show is likable, in a channel-surfing way: So-So Rosie. [31 Oct 2011, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  11. It's the best new sitcom of the fall. [16 Oct 2006, p.39]
    • People Weekly
  12. Top Design will make you not want to leave your TV room--no matter what it looks like. [5 Feb 2007, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  13. The show works and it's fun. [12 Nov 2012, p.43]
    • People Weekly
  14. After two flabby seasons, the Fox action series is back in bang-up shape. [25 Jan 2010, p.41]
    • People Weekly
  15. Johnson is the find of the season: She's the sunbeam that doesn't filter out dust motes. [29 Oct 2012, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  16. If the show's isn't terribly ambitious to break new ground, it's a nice lull. [11 Jun 2012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  17. Nothing in the opener is especially fresh or intriguing except the relationship between Ryan and Seth.
  18. Copper lacks the brains or kick to lift it above being a period piece. [10 Sep 2012, p.41]

    If you prize originality, this new series will underwhelm you. ... What's surprising is the goodly number of laughs it does offer.
  19. I look forward to The Payoff. [27 Sep 2010, p.54]
    • People Weekly
  20. The show's fun, and a little freaky. [2 Oct 2006, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  21. That premise could make for a crisp and slick adventure hour; it did in the pilot. Already, though, Fahey's character is losing definition because of a string of unfocused scripts.
  22. Cold Case should be money in the bank for CBS. But the... premiere suffers from a predictable murder plo... and an overly arty climactic sequence that belongs in a music video, not a police drama.
  23. Miller is believably blonde, and that's about it. [22 Oct 3012, p.42]
    • People Weekly
  24. O'Loughlin's an impressively taciturn, tense presence" You get the sense that McGarrett could go to a luau and still experience it as a hurt locker. As McGarrett's sidekick Danno, Scott Caan is the opposite: all quick, bantam energy. He steals scenes as coolly as surfers catch waves. [27 Sep 2010, p.53]
    • People Weekly
  25. The premiere episode of Madam Secretary, for the time being, suggests that the show is very much the little sister [to The Good Wife].... But Madam Secretary, in which Téa Leoni plays the newly appointed secretary of state, deserves to hang around long enough to formulate and declare itself.
  26. [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
  27. It's more fun than most hidden-camera shows: Kutcher keeps his in-your-face energy from boiling over into obnoxious-ness.
  28. Spade... can deliver an insult with such grace and precision it's like watching Fred Astaire dance with a prop
  29. The new entry is more action-oriented and less morally ponderous than the recent Star Trek series. But it still suffers from its predecessors' overdeveloped air of gravitas.
