Awake: Why Is There a Penguin in Britten's House!?

Jason Isaacs

How long can Michael Britten live in two realities?

More and more that's becoming the question at the center of NBC's Awake. After Britten (Jason Isaacs) agreed to move with his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) to Oregon — a move encouraged by his therapists as a sign of progress — he received a haunting phone call from the serial killer he was chasing that urged him to not let go of his dual-reality gift.

Yvette Nicole Brown

Awake: Can Britten Keep His Double Life and His Marriage?

Laura Allen

Awake's Michael Britten is already living in two worlds, and after Thursday's episode, he may soon be living in a third.

Spring Preview: Get more scoop on new shows

Britten (Jason Isaacs) has been slipping back and forth between two realities ever since a car accident killed either his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) or his son Rex (Dylan Minnette). In Thursday's aptly titled episode "Oregon," Britten learns that Hannah is far more serious than he thought about moving to the Beaver State to pursue law school — and to escape the pain of losing their son.

"Obviously she's devastated by the loss of her son and yet she needs to stay in perpetual motion," Allen tells TVGuide.com... read more

Ratings: Touch Has Solid Return; Missing and Community Fall

Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz

Two months after its special preview, Touch returned to TV Thursday to solid, if smaller, numbers, helping Fox coast to an easy win with American Idol.

The Kiefer Sutherland drama drew 11.7 million viewers and a 3.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — down 18 percent in the demo from its January preview, but up ...

Thursday TV in Review: Touch, Awake, Community, Archer

David Mazouz, Kiefer Sutherland

Anyone who thinks TV isn't trying hard enough to raise the bar this midseason should check out tonight's most distinctive shows. With the official series launch of Fox's fantastical Touch (9/8c) and another fascinating episode of NBC's mystifying Awake (10/9c), I imagine some will maintain that they may be trying a little too hard.

It's probably fair to wonder if Fox is touched in the head for going forward with a show as out-there as Touch. This hasn't been an easy time for truly offbeat shows to gain traction, as risk-takers including Smash, The River and Awake have struggled in the ratings, with critics eager to point out their obvious flaws while often undervaluing the ambition it took to put ...

Thursday's episode earned 4.9 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — a 46 percent increase in the demo from its winter finale and a 38 percent climb over the season average of 1.6.

Ask Matt: Terra Nova vs. Fringe, Awake, USA's Leading Ladies and GCB

Mary McCormack, Frederick Weller

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Just wondering about Terra Nova and the rumors that they'll be shopping it around to another network. It took them pretty much forever to get the first season prepared, I'm assuming because of the special effects. If they wind up on another network, that probably means a smaller budget, faster production, fewer dinosaurs, more focus on the people, character-driven stories, etc. Right? Sounds entertaining to me. (I do confess, though Terra Nova struck me as a bit of a mess in some ways, I was looking forward to seeing how the story played out.)
