Question: I am a long-time follower of your columns and reviews, and I just want to thank you for all the great series you have steered me toward over the years. The latest is Breaking Bad, which I never would have gone near if not for your raves. What an amazing show. Now I'm wondering if you have been watching The Glades and what you think of its development. Being from South Florida, I am always curious about shows located there. Most shows don't get the feel of the place (we won't even speak of that CSI show), but this one seems to be doing it right so far. And talk about someone coming out of left field: Where did this amazing guy Matt Passmore come from? Because I know he is Australian, I'll forgive his lack of a Chicago accent, but he has developed such an interesting and believable character (thank you also, writers) and is such a charismatic lead. After Lost, I never thought I could appreciate Kiele Sanchez in anything, but I am enjoying her performance as well. Thanks again for all the enjoyable hours of TV and please keep writing your columns! — Susan
Matt Roush: Well, thanks for that encouraging feedback. With The Glades, I'll fess up that I haven't seen every episode...
This summer's press tour journal starts with CBS, where "stability is a good thing," this understatement coming courtesy of entertainment pres Nina Tassler, kicking off the network portion of the Television Critics Association gathering on Tuesday. (As opposed to the disarray over at ABC, whose turn comes Sunday, after having been rocked this week by the sudden ouster of its programming boss Steve McPherson.)

CBS is playing to its traditional strengths this fall with a lineup of new legal and crime dramas and conventional laugh-tracky sitcoms. No critical breakthroughs on the order of The Good Wife, but there's every reason to believe commercially crafted shows like the Hawaii Five-0 "reboot" (don't call it a "remake") and the buddy-lawyer Vegas romp The Defenders will carry on the Eye tradition of mainstream populist escapist success...
Comic-Con has become the ultimate experience for TV fans. And more than 125,000 of them will descend upon the San Diego Convention Center from this Thursday through Sunday for screenings, star panels, autograph opportunities and specially designed collectibles. In the last few years, though, the featured TV shows have fallen into three distinct categories: the obvious "genre" programming like Fringe, Caprica, Supernatural, Futurama and The Vampire Diaries; the shows with tangential relationships to genre entertainment (see ABC's Castle panel, with former Firefly star Nathan Fillion, for instance); and finally, entries, like Glee, that make some hard-core fans think, "Why exactly is that show here?"
Joining that elite first group is AMC's The Walking Dead, a zombie drama based on the Image Comics title by Robert Kirkman, a veteran of the San Diego experience. "It seems like every time I go to Comic-Con, I discover a new VIP area," he says. "Like, 'Wait a minute, just behind this wall they're giving back rubs and everyone gets pink lemonade?'" ...
Alex O'Loughlin fans got a bloody good summer treat when the CW acquired all 16 episodes of Moonlight, the Aussie actor's short-lived but beloved vampire detective show. "We get letters and e-mails about Moonlight all the time," says CW entertainment chief Dawn Ostroff. "And so we thought it would be interesting if we aired it following The Vampire Diaries."
Moonlight (Thursdays at 9/8c, The CW) follows the perpetually 30-year-old private investigator Mick St. John (O'Loughlin), his hedonistic buddy Josef (Jason Dohring) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), a young reporter whose chemistry with Mick threatens her relationship with her human fiancé. Around to cause trouble...
Michael, Fiona and Sam are back for a fourth season as the show moves to a new 9/8c time slot. In the premiere, the trio take on bodyguard duties for a lawyer, who needs protection from a biker gang. And, as always, there's new intrigue for Michael as he works to thwart a looming terrorist threat and is forced to take on an unlikely partner.
Read on for previews of So You Think You Can Dance, Real Housewives of New York City, Royal Pains, the NBA finals, Moonlight and Modern Marvels.

Any juicy teasers for the remaining episodes of Lie to Me's second season? — Kim M.
ADAM: Outgoing showrunner Shawn Ryan says the final nine episodes build to a cliff-hanger leading into Season 3, even though many of the episodes stand alone. One reunites Ryan with six cast members from his hit cable series, The Shield. Airing Aug. 16, the episode finds Lightman (Tim Roth) wondering if he sent the wrong person to jail in a child murder case. "We get called to an execution and the guy says he didn't do it, and he didn't do it," Roth says. "The reason he is getting executed is because I was a witness. So he's sentenced to death based on my science and my testimony."
When is Royal Pains coming back? What has Hank been doing all winter? — Michael
MICKEY: Nothing. In fact, there is no winter in Hank's world...

CBS will add only five new series to its fall lineup, taking an if-it-ain't broke approach that will bring back 18 series, though some of them will be in unproven new time slots. The male-dominated new shows include the previously anticipated Hawaii Five-0 reboot, a new legal drama, The Defenders, starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell, a family cop drama starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg, and $#*! My Dad Says, a William Shatner vehicle inspired ...
In a surprise to almost no one, CBS has reportedly picked up its remake of the classic cop drama Hawaii Five-O, a show whose cast has made it already one of the most anticipated shows of the fall season.
