Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they go back to a crime-of-the-week if they can't do better than this. I love your column, by the way! I can't believe how long it took me to find it, but now I never miss it. — Kay

Will you make a date with Manhattan Love Story? Do you give Selfie a thumbs-up? Now that ABC's newest romantic comedies have debuted, we want to know: Did you fall in love?
Vote: Which fall premieres are hits? Which are misses?
Will you continue to root for Manhattan Love Story's Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (Jake McDorman)? Or was their inner monologue just too damn loud for your liking? Did Selfie's twist on My Fair Lady win you over?

How I'd love it if any of this season's dismal new wave of romantic comedies, all vying to be the next How I Met Your Mother, made me LOL. Sadly, I'm more inclined to search for a "cringe" emoticon, especially where ABC's two new Tuesday night entries are concerned.
The less objectionable is Selfie (8/7c), a strained attempt to update Pygmalion to the Instagram era, but coming off more like My Fair Lucy — because this Eliza Doolittle, here called Eliza Dooley (Doctor Who's Karen Gillan), is silly and vapid beyond belief or tolerance.

Doctor Who fans will be shocked to see beloved alum Karen Gillan on ABC's new comedy Selfie not only because of the Brit's impressive American accent, but also because of the genre switch.
"I started off in comedy actually, so it's kind of like a return to that for me," Gillan tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "I like doing an American accent."
On the new series, premiering Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, the actress gets to flex those comedy muscles as Eliza Dooley, a young Los Angeles-area woman who has tons of social media followers but "doesn't really know how to connect with people in real life," she says.

Eliza soon asks her coworker Henry (John Cho), a marketing guru, to "make Eliza a more acceptable human being," Cho says.

The verdict is still out regarding ABC's middling batch of new shows for the fall — as often happens, many of the network's more tantalizing projects are being held until midseason — but as ABC stepped into the TCA press-tour spotlight on Tuesday, the vibe was unusually positive because of one overarching hot-button issue: diversity.

Thanks to Instagram and Facebook, "selife" was named Oxford's word of the year for 2013. But is Selfie really a good name for a TV show?
"We definitely talked about it," series creator Emily Kapnek told reporters at Tuesday's Television Critics Association fall previews. "Selfie is a very provocative word, but for us, it really speaks to the disease that...
