Question: I think the last time I wrote to you was trying to decide whether to watch Lone Star or The Event in a time-slot match-up. You rightly pointed me in the direction of Lone Star in terms of quality, with clearly a star in the making in James Wolk, but sadly, it was a victim of the wrong network (Fox) for a show that probably was meant for cable, so it died an early death. Not that it matters in the long run, considering The Event also wilted. Now we have another Monday night time-slot match-up... read more

What Are Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Chances on Tuesday Nights?

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

To say Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is highly anticipated is an understatement.

After The Avengers pulled in $1.5 billion globally and other Marvel blockbusters like Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and the Iron Man franchise succeeded at the box office, ABC's collaboration with Marvel appeared to be a sure thing. Add to that that S.H.I.E.L.D. marks the television return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon, who brings with him even bigger expectations for the new series.

On S.H.I.E.L.D., which is an offshoot of The Avengers film franchise, Agent Coulson... read more

Jason Ritter Talks Parenthood And Remembers His Famous Dad

Jason Ritter

Jason Ritter knows how to make the most of an opportunity. When the 32-year-old actor was invited to guest star on the first season of the NBC dramedy Parenthood, he was only supposed to appear in a three-episode arc as sexy, mild-mannered high school teacher Mark Cyr. Cut to Season 4: Ritter has an Emmy nomination under his belt, his character is engaged to fortysomething single mom Sarah (Lauren Graham) — age difference be damned — and he's even managed to wangle his way into the official family portrait. But all that could be at risk, thanks to the recent arrival of Sarah's new boss, Hank, played with crotchety magnetism by Ray Romano. Ritter opens up about his status as an almost-Braverman, life lessons from his late dad, John, and what's really beneath the nice-guy façade... read more

The Daily Review: Revolution, The Mob Doctor, Perception Finale, Bones, Alphas, More

Emily Deschanel

Where were you when the lights went out?

That scenario, which has been played for comedy in the past, is the stuff of escapist fantasy-adventure in the more appealing and promising of two new network dramas premiering tonight. NBC's heavily hyped Revolution (10/9c) follows a long line of high-concept quick fades including The Event (same network, same night), Terra Nova (same night, different network), FlashForward, V, Alcatraz and so on. Will this make the grade where so many others failed? read more

Can Revolution Break the Mystery Show Curse?

Tracy Spiridakos

Many shows have fallen victim to the three most cursed words in recent TV history: "the next Lost." Ever since the island drama debuted in 2005, networks have been scrambling to re-create the series' irresistible combination of poignant drama and the bizarre supernatural. Unfortunately, most shows that try to fill those shoes — FlashForward, The Event and Alcatraz, to name three — have floundered within just a season. Does NBC's latest foray into sci-fi mystery genre, Revolution, have what it takes to break the curse? read more

Will Your Watchlist Picks Predict Fall TV Success?

Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu

Last fall, eight of the top 10 shows added to Watchlist were picked up for a full season. Coincidence -- or are TVGuide.com users just that savvy at picking winners? And will they have the same Midas touch this year?

What is a Watchlist? This video explains

We're going to find out. Since May, when the networks announced their fall lineups at the annual upfronts presentations, we've been tracking which shows users were most excited about, as evidenced by their addition to Watchlists. Three months later, we've got a lot of data from our 500,000+ Watchlist users. So far, for example, users are generally more interested in... read more
