Cheers & Jeers


Cheers & Jeers: Louie Visits Ricky Gervais' Office

Ricky Gervais

Jeers to Ricky Gervais for committing comedic malpractice on Louie.

The increasingly lazy British cutup—witness the low-effort, low-impact HBO cartoon of his podcasts, The Ricky Gervais Show—treated his guest role as Louis C.K.'s doctor... read more

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

Jeers to Jake Pavelka for flying off the handle on The Bachelorette.

Cheers & Jeers: Navi Rawat Fizzles on Burn Notice

Navi Rawat

Jeers to Navi Rawat for throwing a wet blanket on Burn Notice.

USA's summer spy caper has been firing on all cylinders in Season 4, charged up by the addition of Coby Bell as charming comrade-in-arms Jesse Porter. But the action comes to a screeching halt every time the Numb3rs alum shows up... read more

Cheers & Jeers: The (James) Franco Regime Rules!

James Franco, General Hospital

Cheers to James Franco for achieving the impossible: getting me to watch a soap opera.

I hadn't dialed up a daytime drama since my brief, inexplicable high-school addiction to the recently snuffed-out Guiding Light, but I caught a bit of James Franco's bizarre turn as nutso performance artist Franco on General Hospital last fall, and I tuned back in to see his return.  He didn't disappoint: Resurfacing in Port Charles as a... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Reggie Watts Up!

Reggie Watts

Cheers to Reggie Watts for lighting up the small screen.

The incandescent comic/musician — who's like the love child of Zach Galifianakis and Jack Black, plus a giant Afro — tore down houses as the opening act for Conan O'Brien's just-concluded "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour." He made his network debut on O'Brien successor Jimmy Fallon's Late Night and performed one of his breakout tunes, "Big-Ass Purse," in TBS' recent special Team Coco Presents: Conan's Writers. Too bad ... read more

Cheers & Jeers: A Less-Than-Fox-Worthy Opener

Craig Kilborn

Jeers to The Kilborn File for an underwhelming first guest.

Kim Raver, Jason Wiles

Cheers to the cast of Third Watch for finding a second career wind.

Cheers & Jeers: Not-So-Hot in Cleveland

Hot in Cleveland

Jeers to Hot in Cleveland for stranding a quartet of Golden Girls with tin-plate material.

TV Land's new sitcom stars four actresses with more than a century of small-screen experience combined: Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White. Too bad the show's jokes... read more

Cheers & Jeers: What's It All About, Alfre?

Alfre Woodard, Memphis Beat

Jeers to Memphis Beat for saddling Alfre Woodard with another one-note role.

The 14-time Emmy nominee (she's won four — for Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, The Practice and the HBO film Miss Evers' Boys) has lately been wasted in throwaway authority-figure parts on subpar shows like Three Rivers and My Own Worst Enemy. TNT's new cop dramedy is no exception, as Woodard's by-the-book boss mostly stands around scowling at Jason Lee's maverick Tennessee detective... read more
