Critic's Guide to Tuesday TV: New Girl Talks Turkey, Sons Explodes, and More!

Zooey Deschanel

A week from now, we won't be thanking Fox for ditching its Tuesday comedy lineup to make room for another displaced edition of The X Factor (which will be shifting its schedule back a day to avoid spoiling our Thanksgiving digestion with another results show). read more

Critic's Guide to Monday TV: Farewell to Regis, a Diane Sawyer "Get," and More!

Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords, Diane Sawyer

This week, it's all about Regis Philbin. The irrepressible broadcasting legend, who holds a Guinness World Record for most hours spent in front of a TV camera, will finally give it a rest at the end of this week, as he steps away from Live! With Regis and Kelly (check local listings) after nearly 25 years in national syndication and many years before that in a variety of jobs, including as Joey Bishop's late-night sidekick in the late '60s.

His time on Live! cemented his ...

Question: Why do successful shows tinker with what is already working? Rules of Engagement has become "The Timmy Show," and The Big Bang Theory has become a show about Penny, Bernadette and Amy. What gives? — Kelly

Matt Roush: The easiest way to answer this question is to state a pretty obvious fact of TV life: If you don't tinker, you risk growing stale. In this case, tinkering means ...

Critic's Guide to Weekend TV: Fringe, Primeval, A British Lunch and More!

Anna Torv

FRIDAY

Disorientation is nothing new for the loyal viewer — we hardy few — of Fox's fantastically bizarre Fringe (9/8c). read more

Critic's Guide to Thursday TV: A Gripping Grey's Anatomy, Bones' New Intern and More!

Scott Foley

The basic theme of tonight's eventful Grey's Anatomy fall finale (ABC, 9/8c) is: "You think you had a bad day?" The doctors of Seattle Grace have their hands and hearts full of trauma, with much of the chaos spinning around the emergency surgery involving Teddy's chronically ill but eternally chipper ...

Critic's Guide to Wednesday's TV: CMAs vs. X Factor and a Ripper Anniversary

Jason Lee

Noticeably lacking in the ranks of The X Factor's contestants: budding country music stars. (Maybe they didn't want to risk another Scotty McCreery-style steamroller upstaging upstarts like "Astro.") And now, as the Top 11 square off, Fox's overblown singing contest (8/7c) faces its toughest competition to date: another musical extravaganza, ABC's three-hour broadcast of The 45th Annual CMA Awards (8/7c) from Nashville, with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosting for the fourth year in a row. (They'll perform their hit "Remind Me" during the show.)

Critic's Guide to Tuesday TV: Absolute Anarchy, Glee (Bed)Side Story, and More!

Ron Perlman

The timing couldn't be better for this week's announcement by FX that the current — and best to date — season of Sons of Anarchy is being expanded by an extra episode (No. 14 will now air Dec. 6). read more

Ask Matt: Walking Dead, Homeland, Revenge and More!

The Walking Dead

Question: I am currently enjoying The Walking Dead and Homeland, both cable shows and therefore both with shorter seasons. However, after a couple of fast-moving episodes at the start, they've both come to a bit of a standstill. The Walking Dead has basically been stuck at the same place for the last couple of episodes, and Homeland now feels like they don't ...

Critic's Guide to Monday TV: Guest Stars Galore, Where's Matt Lauer, Two and a Half Men

Jon Cryer

By the time you read this, Today's well-traveled Matt Lauer may well already be on his way to his next destination. This is the 10th anniversary of his "Where in the World Is Matt Lauer?" stunt (airing all week, starting at 7am), and as he tells our Stephen Battaglio, this could be ...

Critic's Guide to Weekend TV: Hell on Wheels, Fringe, Homeland, and More!

Anson Mount

Describing Hell on Wheels as "Revenge in the mud" makes it sound a lot more enjoyable than it is. AMC's sprawling but heavy-handed attempt to revive and redefine the Western (a newly hot TV-development trend) is solemn business indeed, with precious little wit or originality. (It premieres Sunday at 10/9c.)
