Ask Matt: Once Upon a Time, Pilot Season, Luck and HBO, Revenge and More

Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin

Question: I've been watching Once Upon A Time from the beginning, and I thought by now, we'd start to see some real movement towards the present-day fairy-tale folks realizing that something was amiss. But it seems to be dragging and dragging, and while the "fairy tale" portions are fun to watch, there's nothing there that gives one hope that finally, someone other than Henry knows something's amiss. It's getting boring. Any tidbits as to when that ...

Ratings: Touch Posts Second-Biggest Drama Debut of the Season

Kiefer Sutherland

They can obsess about these numbers on Touch: Wednesday night's preview of the series that begins March 19 pulled in the second-biggest audience of any prime-time drama premiere this season.

It was second only to ABC's Once Upon a Time, which reeled in 12.79 million viewers and a 4.0 rating among industry-prized 18-to-49-year-olds on Oct. 23, and Kiefer Sutherland's TV comeback surpassed the debut of two other ballyhooed Fox shows this season, Alcatraz (9.97 million/3.3 on Jan. 16) and Terra Nova (9 million/3.1 on Sept. 26), according to preliminary Nielsen figures. Of course, Touch had the benefit of following American Idol, which was the night's most-watched show by far (despite its relatively lagging numbers), and kept 61 percent of its lead-in's viewership.

Ratings: Alcatraz Has a Solid Showing in Week 2

Sam Neill

Alcatraz — which last week made Fox's strongest dramatic series debut in three years — didn't have too many escapees, losing just about 10 percent of its audience in its second week, according to Nielsen overnights.

It also fell just to 3.0 from 3.3 among 18-to-49-year-olds from the two-hour debut — making it the season's third new drama series to post a rating of at least a 3.0 in its second week (after Terra Nova and Once Upon a Time).

Fox at TCA: What's Up With House, Fringe, Terra Nova and the Glee Spin-Off?

House, Fringe, Terra Nova

Want to know if your favorite Fox show will be back next season? You're going to have to wait a little while longer.

In particular, the fates of House, Fringe and freshman series Terra Nova remain undecided, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly told reporters Sunday at the winter TV previews. "We've done a good job of avoiding some of these big decisions," Reilly said with a laugh. "I do feel fortunate that we have some high-class problems."

House preps for the end

House's future has been in question since Reilly first announced a year ago that the show's eighth season may be its last. But Reilly says read more

Top Moments: Homeland's Explosive Finale, Mindy Kaling and Bill Clinton... Reunited At Last

Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, The Today Show

Our top moments of the week:

10. Best Silent Killer: When it came time for the jury to have at the final three Survivor: South Pacific contestants, the most vicious commentary of all comes from an unexpected source —Whitney — the sweet Southern belle. "Albert, you're sleazy," she says. "Coach, you used Christianity to manipulate your whole tribe. And Sophie? You're the most condescending person I've ever met." Are you sure about that, Whitney? Because that condescending person managed to snare enough votes to win.

Terra Nova: 10 Reasons Why Fox's Dino-Drama Should or Should Not Be Renewed

Jason O'Mara

Terra Nova ended its freshman season by permanently cutting off the colony to the future and unloading a whole slew of new mysteries for what the producers likely hope means a second season.

Lucas Taylor (Ashley Zuckerman) finally got the upper-hand on his father, bringing the Phoenix Army to the past, where they planned to mine and strip Terra Nova of all its resources. Commander Taylor (Stephen Lang) refused to go down without a fight, sending Jim (Jason O'Mara) to the future to destroy Hope Plaza, essentially plunging everyone left in the colony into the dark ages, with no further contact with the future possible. However, before the Phoenix Army high-tailed it away, they left a clue that could mean... there may be humans on prehistoric Earth? Or another portal?

Critic's Guide to the Week in TV: Finales, Musical and Comedy Divas, and More!

Allison Miller

'Twas the week before Christmas, and I can't remember when so much was stirring on TV this late into the year. Here are some highlights from an unusually busy pre-Christmas week.

MONDAY

DINO-MIGHT? The biggest cliffhanger regarding the two-hour finale of Fox's time-tripping family sci-fi drama Terra Nova (8/7c) isn't so much what happens on the show, which is fairly standard action-adventure mayhem, but whether it will return for a second season next year. (That decision should be ...

Critic's Guide to Monday TV: Fear Factor, a Hawaii Five-0 Wedding and More!

Fear Factor

On the 12th day of December, with only 12 days (gulp) until Christmas Eve, here's a dozen topics of interest — or possibly disinterest — regarding today's unusually busy, for mid-December, TV lineup.

Mother's Day: On CBS's biggest Monday hit, Two and a Half Men (9/8c), Mimi Rogers drops by the Malibu manse as Walden's mom. Alan, naturally, is smitten (ewwww), but in the opposite-of-nurturing tradition of mothers ...

Ask Matt: Vampire Diaries, Dexter, Glee, the TV Laugh Track, and More!

Nina Dobrev

Question: As we approach the annual barrage of year-end Top 10 lists, I'm dreading the fact that one worthy, excellent TV show will be overlooked by most critics: The Vampire Diaries. Don't get me wrong, I love Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones as much as any sane person, but I also think TVD is one of the most expertly paced, perfectly plotted shows on TV right now. Unfortunately, I don't think many professional critics bother to watch it, though they'll analyze lesser shows like True Blood and The Walking Dead just because of the networks they air on. Even if critics don't think The Vampire Diaries is Top 10 worthy, I think it at least deserves to be part of the year-end conversation. Why is it so hard for a show like this to be taken seriously? — Donnie

Matt Roush: I like Vampire Diaries and probably give it more consideration than ...
