When it debuted last year, TNT's LAPD drama felt like a poor man's Shield, with Dylan McDermott leading a team of gonzo undercover cops who weren't afraid to cross the line to nail the bad guys... read more

Cheers & Jeers: The Closer's License to Kyle

Kyle Secor

Cheers to The Closer for letting Kyle Secor cross over to the wrong side of the law.

The seemingly ageless actor spent six seasons interrogating suspects in "the box" on NBC's Homicide: Life on the Street. But this time he took the heat on TNT's hit crime drama as an airline pilot grilled by Kyra Sedgwick's Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson about his involvement with drugs, murder and flight attendants—not necessarily in that order... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Friday Night Lights' Incredible Jurnee

Jurnee Smollet

Cheers to Jurnee Smollett for completing a tricky arc on Friday Night Lights.

When the TGIF alum (who costarred with five of her siblings in the 1994-5 sitcom On Our Own) joined FNL at the start of Season 4 ... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Jersey Shore Washes Out

Jersey Shore

Jeers to Jersey Shore for losing touch with its Garden State roots.

As has been noted by Gov. Chris Christie, among others, much of the cast of MTV's watercooler smash doesn't hail from New Jersey. At least Season 1 was shot in Seaside Heights, but in a rush to get the show back on the air before Snooki & Co.'s 15 minutes of infamy run out, Season 2 opens with the gang fleeing the snowy Northeast for Miami Beach (or "the MIA," which, as the Situation helpfully explains, "means Miami")... read more

Cheers & Jeers: A Plus-Sized Project Runway

Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn

Cheers to Project Runway for letting out the seams.

The eighth season of Heidi Klum's Emmy-nominated reality show debuts on Lifetime July 29 at 9/8c in a new, 90-minute format. Unlike the heavily padded Bachelorette or Biggest Loser, this is one unscripted franchise that benefits from an extended running time. The opener allows plenty of room to meet the 17 new contestants, who include... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Austin & Santino — No Plain Janes

Santino Rice and Austin Scarlett

Cheers to On the Road with Austin & Santino for giving the makeover show a much-needed makeover.

One needs only to watch The CW's Plain Jane (debuting July 28 at 9/8c) to see how tired ...

Cheers & Jeers: Tony Robbins? Gimme a Break!

Tony Robbins

Jeers to NBC for turning over an hour of primetime to a glorified infomercial.

The Peacock has flirted with the equivalent of self-help ads (The Biggest Loser, Losing It With Jillian), but the net has truly crossed the line with Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, an hourlong series debuting July 27 at 8/7c. That's right, "author, strategist and coach" Robbins—who was mocked as a charlatan nearly 20 years ago on The Ben Stiller Show ("I hypnotize you with my teeth, and you pay me money!")—is now a network-TV star... read more

Cheers & Jeers: (James) Badge (Dale) of Honor

James Badge Dale

Cheers to James Badge Dale for pulling a double shift on a pair of top-rank cable dramas.

Having recently wrapped his run as PFC Robert Leckie in HBO's stirring World War II miniseries The Pacific, Badge Dale has reported for duty as intelligence analyst Will Travers on AMC's intriguing new headscratcher Rubicon. As a widower still grieving over the loss of his wife and child in 9/11, he brings warmth to a series that could be a chilly homage to paranoid '70s thrillers like The Conversation and The Parallax View.

Cheers & Jeers: Rescue Me Finds Redemption

Denis Leary

Cheers to Rescue Me for a remarkable run of episodes.

If you've drifted away from Denis Leary's FX firefighting dramedy, make sure to tune back in for the next three episodes (airing July 27, August 3 and August 10). Tellingly entitled "Blackout," "Sanctuary" and "Forgiven," they could just as easily be called "The Last Temptation of Tommy Gavin." The raging alcoholic finally, truly hits rock bottom... read more
