Question: Now that the "traditional" network season is about half over, do you have any shows you've found to be either pleasant surprises (those you didn't think much of initially, but improved) or disappointments? I know that for me, the biggest disappointment has been (as it has been for many people) Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is basically just the 21st-century A-Team. It's fairly entertaining enough, but if it were to disappear tomorrow, I wouldn't shed any tears. The two happiest surprises for me have been The Crazy Ones (which didn't sound like it would be good, and I quit watching after the pilot but have caught up and found it quite enjoyable — probably because they keep Robin Williams' zaniness in check and the supporting cast has proven very funny) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I didn't really know much of Andy Samberg so wasn't that interested, but the early reviews had me check it out. I was very glad, too, because that's one new show I look forward to every week. I find it to be a worthy successor to The Office in its heyday. I'm also finding Almost Human to be getting much better from its middling premiere, though it's still not quite appointment TV. — Scott

Move over, Hannah Montana — Ally Dawson just might be the newest singing sensation to take over the Disney Channel. In the June 23 episode of Austin & Ally, titular songwriting star Ally (Laura Marano) will finally move out of the studio and onto the stage to perform her own song — but not without some trouble in the spotlight. One glitch: a new recording artist, Kira, who happens to be the daughter of Starr Records' head honcho, signs on as the label's newest artist and wants to rock her first performance with none other than Ally's song. Will Ally get her big moment?&
