This list ended up being pretty harsh, so I feel the need to preface it by saying that I really do enjoy this show. It's probably my biggest guilty pleasure -- it's a lot of fun at times (dinner parties! Conference calls! Kevin one-liners!), I think many of the performances are spectacular, and I do continue to root for it despite the many reasons any sane person would have stopped over a year ago. But I'm sorry, this show is a damn mess, and there a million things that need to be done to improve it. I'm not going to attempt to list every single one of them here, because no show can ever be perfect and a complete list would be about 20,000 words, but here are some major flaws that, if fixed, could make the show a lot less embarrassing for me to admit watching.
The NCIS crews are in the hizzouse!
It's that time of year when networks are finalizing their fall line-ups and deciding which current shows to keep or cancel. And while we'd like to see underrated procedural Detroit 1-8-7 get another chance, as well as the ridiculous, nonsensical guilty pleasure Off the Map continue, there are a plenty of other "bubble" shows that truly deserve to get their bubbles burst, freeing their casts and producers to seek better luck elsewhere. Here are the ones that most need to be axed, for everyone's sake:
, two and a half men
, the event
, no ordinary family
, brothers and sisters
, human target
, mr. sunshine
, Traffic Light
, harry's law
The rumor that Balthazar Getty's gig on Brothers & Sisters
is ending soon has been swirling around ever since he started being photographed smooching a topless Sienna Miller on the high seas months ago, and now Ausiello is reporting that it's pretty much officially true now
. Well, it's still technically a rumor because ABC hasn't confirmed, but it's Ausiello and he knows things from time to time so I'm inclined to believe it.
