Homeland and Modern Family topped Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, winning series awards, while The Artist solidified its status as Oscar front-runner with three wins.
Check out all the Golden Globes fashion hits and misses
Homeland won two of its three awards: best drama series and TV drama actress for Claire Danes. The actress is now a perfect 3-for-3 at the Globes. Her co-star Damian Lewis lost drama actor to Kelsey Grammer (Boss). It was a big ceremony for Showtime, as Episodes' Matt LeBlanc scored his ...
So You Think You Can Dance

Question: I heard somewhere that Fox will be canceling So You Think You Can Dance after this season and that this season will be shaved down a bit. How can this be true? This is one of the very best "reality" shows on TV. It's classy, inspiring, emotional, and I keep being amazed ...
Who says you can't go home again? Not that any of us ever lived in a place as grand and as teeming with character — highborn and low, selfless and treacherous — as Downton Abbey.
Is Bridesmaids on its way to a Best Picture Oscar nomination? The hit comedy was nominated Tuesday for a Producers Guild of America Award — one of the best Oscar predictors.
Also nominated for best feature: Oscar front-runner The Artist, The Descendants, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Help...
Harry Shum Jr.
From Oprah's surprisingly low-key farewell to the year's most soul-crushing break-up on The Good Wife (Kalicia, no!), the year was packed with fantastic hours of television — pretty much all of which we watched. There were teary goodbyes (Friday Night Lights' Texas forever! Smallville's tights and flights!), tense face-offs (why can't all CIA interrogations take place on the front porch of a cabin, like on Homeland?) and of course we made room for a little Glee (because certain underdogs deserved it). Which made the list. Tune in all week for our top 25.
Here's the second batch in our weeklong countdown of 2011's best episodes (Catch up first with Episodes 25-21 and Episodes 20-16):
Michelle Dockery and Dan Stevens
The best new series of the year is Showtime's twisty nail-biter of a psychological thriller, an emotionally intense cat-and-mouse game between two damaged souls: Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody, a Marine POW who may have been turned by terrorists during eight years in Iraqi captivity, and Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, the unstable CIA analyst who breaks all the rules to get under his skin — and at times under the sheets. (Bringing new meaning to undercover agent). The actors are as electrifying as the storytelling in this taut tale of homeland insecurity, which also features a marvelously restrained Mandy Patinkin as Carrie's melancholy mentor and a revelatory Morena Baccarin as Brody's understandably conflicted wife. Homeland comes from the veteran producers of 24, who have lost none of their knack for sustained suspense, but within this more realistic framework have been able to concoct a thoughtful and gripping meditation on the human toll of the war on terror.
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 ...
"Here comes the bad part."
When you hear ominous words like these in a show as unflinchingly graphic and terrifying as AMC's The Walking Dead (Sunday, 9/8c), you know you're in trouble. Bad, of course, meaning good and gruesome — just how a zombie-phile likes it. Following a long hiatus and behind-the-scenes tumult including the departure of co-creator/director Frank Darabont, Dead returns very much alive and kicking, the gut-wrenching highlight of another busy TV weekend.
Friday Night Lights, Parks and Recreation, Game Of Thrones
Critics sure do love the underdogs. Friday Night Lights, which didn't receive Emmy attention until its final two seasons, won the Program of the Year award for its final season at the Television Critics Association Awards on Saturday night.
Game of Thrones, which was one of the most buzzed-about new shows of the year, was named...
The made-for-TV movie/miniseries would be an almost completely lost art if it weren't for HBO and the British imports served up by PBS' various Masterpiece franchises. Already this year, we have a deliciously strong contender for best-of-year (and, one imagines, Emmy) honors with Masterpiece Classic's over-too-quickly Downton Abbey.
