Let's try and figure it out
And she's got Parenthood roots
Let's be honest: Everyone could use a little Adam Braverman in their life. Since NBC's Parenthood debuted in 2010, we've watched Zeke and Camille's firstborn — played so perfectly by Peter Krause — grow from being a tad neurotic and overprotective to quickly become the family's shoulder to cry on and one of our favorite characters on television. Whether it was attempting to "hip it up" to get a rapper's business, wearing a pirate costume for his son Max (Max Burkholder), trying to find the perfect wig for his wife Kristina (Monica Potter) during chemo or unleashing his signature dance moves (aka "The Fever"), here are the 31 times (so far) we have adored Adam Braverman.

I certainly didn't see Cary's arrest coming, and I can't wait to find out what they have in store for us next. Matt Czuchry is terrific, and I'm thrilled he's getting this opportunity for a meaty storyline. As opposed to a show such as The Vampire Diaries, which tore through so much plot I stopped caring (no one stays dead, so where are the stakes?), The Good Wife earns its twists and turns, and only gets better with each game-changer. I've thoroughly enjoyed it from the get-go, but in the last year, it has vaulted to the top of my can't-miss shows. As we all know, many programs decline after the first few seasons and limp to the finish line. NCIS became a big hit a few years into its run, but I'm not sure it grew creatively. (That's not a slight — I don't watch it, so I genuinely don't know.) I can't think of another show that has risen to such glorious new artistic heights in Season 5 and onward the way The Good Wife has. Can you? — Keira
Parenthood's Season 5 finale could've easily served as a series ending, and a satisfying one at that, so much so that both the drama's showrunner and its stars wondered if the network would feel it was the right place to end. "I got nervous watching [the finale] because I felt like, that kind of leaves it in a place where the network can very easily say, 'Oh, that's a nice ending to a series," Peter Krause told a theater full of fans Saturday at the show's ATX Television Festival panel, moderated by this reporter. Added showrunner Jason Katims, "This year, I honestly was hedging my bets. More than any other [season], I didn't know whether the show was going to come back and I thought it was a good chance we wouldn't."

In its second season, the focus will shift to the parents. Catch up on full episodes of Parenthood "[Adam and Kristina] are still trying to figure out Max's condition while raising Haddie, a teenager, and also dealing with their own issues, of which there are many and more to come," Monica Potter tells TVGuide.com.

What could be bad about any project that puts '80s icons Rue McClanahan and Olivia Newton-John together in one scene? Add the outrageous Leslie Jordan and Caroline Rhea, toss in Bonnie Bedelia and veteran actress Beth Grant (No Country for Old Men) and you have Logo's Sordid Lives: The Series. Based on the 1996 play and 2000 film of the same name, the half-hour show chronicles a "dysfunctional family" in Winters, Texas. And yes, there's the Logo-obligatory handsome young wannabe actor (newcomer Jason Dottley) who's struggling to come out to his Republican Baptist family. Look for Sordid Lives to premiere on Wednesday, July 23, at 10 pm/ET. — Ileane Rudolph
