News, scoops, reviews and more from TV land.
The end is near, at least for these series, as the 2012-13 wraps. Yup, it's May 6 and we've already missed a few major endings so far, and without wasting your time, here's your handy scorecard of what basics to expect and when over the next few days/weeks... (And by all means, do check back as I'll add more details and shows - no spoilers - as I learn 'em):

What could wrong with Ted and Don in the same room? In the same company? Oh come on, now, really. So yes, Sunday's "For Immediate Release" was a game-changer.
But -- just to borrow a little bit of the negative vibe that Ted Chaough brings in abundance to every human encounter, let's count the ten ways this union of SCDP and Ted's outfit -- which I guess we should now be calling...Read more »
Well, this '"NCIS" clip featuring Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) was the prime time event last night -- and that includes anything you might have seen on "Dancing with the Stars" or "The Voice" or even Ke$ha's new train derailment of a reality series on MTV.

Apologies for this late post on Sunday's interesting "Mad Men," titled "The Collaborators," but like you, I have had a lot else to reflect on than the latest Don Draper bed-hopping episode.

Why aren't people watching television? To put this more concisely, why are fewer and fewer people watching established hits ("American Idol"), established networks (NBC), and brand new shows ("Golden Boy") which get a lot of network promotional love, but not all that much audience love?
Why, why, why?
These are worrisome times in the field of network television...Read more »
