Ratings: The Voice Returns Lower; Katie Bows Big

CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera

The Season 3 premiere of The Voice easily topped Monday, but also posted the series' lowest-rated premiere ever.

The two-hour telecast, the show's first in the fall, was predictably down from its Super Bowl-boosted Season 2 premiere, averaging 12 million viewers and a 4.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — dropping 39 percent and 25 percent, respectively. The episode also took a 15 percent dip from last season's Monday night ...

Critic's Guide to Tuesday TV: Sons, Parenthood, One Last Dance, and More

Lauren Graham, Ray Romano

Once upon a time, I'd watch FX's Sons of Anarchy begrudgingly because it was popular. Now I'm watching because it's good. As in bad. As in: bad things happening to bad people. Consequences = drama. And that's rarely been more evident than as the fifth season gets underway Tuesday (10/9c), with the motorcycle club torn apart from within and without, capped by an act of retribution that's horrific even by this show's violent standards.

Question: I've seen a lot of debate in the last week since Breaking Bad aired its midpoint finale of this terrific split final season. Much of it focusing on whether Walter White would be obtuse enough to leave Gale's signed copy of Leaves of Grass lying around for anyone ...

Critic's Guide to Monday TV: The New Normal, Crimson Petal, Katie Joins Daytime

Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha

My Two Dads was never like this. Which is partly the point of NBC's The New Normal, a biting yet sweet-at-heart sitcom that bucks current network comedy trends by actually being about something — in this case, a hot-button social issue so polarizing to some that at least one affiliate (in Salt Lake City) opted not to air the ...

The New Normal's Georgia King on the Controversy, Ellen Barkin and Accents

The New Normal

A funny thing happened on the drive home recently for The New Normal star Georgia King.

"We hadn't been paid yet and I could see my gas meter flashing empty, so I went to get it filled up and I had no money," she tells TVGuide.com. "It's surreal trying to get home on an empty gas tank and looking at billboards of your face."

Hopefully such problems will soon be a thing of the past for King, who... read more

Ask Matt: Major Crimes, Covert Affairs, MTV's Inbetweeners and More

Mary McDonnell

Question: Let's play armchair programmer. While I am enjoying Major Crimes, it does feel a bit like we're just waiting for Brenda Leigh to show. Do you think they could have benefited from holding Major Crimes until the traditional December run of The Closer to let us get a little distance? Or is it purely a creative question? Major Crimes looks just like The Closer. Could the show benefit from some slight visual tweaks? Perhaps a slightly different opening sequence? — Steven read more
