Hot tip: If no one is watching your network comedy, slate it for a slow and painful Friday night death.

Top Chef: What Went Wrong With the Texas Season

<I>Top Chef</I>: What Went Wrong With the Texas Season

Tonight's the finale of Top Chef... if you still care. We lost non-professional interest weeks ago. Perhaps it's because we were coming off an all-star installment, so this was bound to be a letdown, or maybe the show just tried to change too many things and failed. Here's what we felt fell flatter than a soufflé this Texas-based season:

The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

This week's list is filled with people who wasted our valuable TV watching time. Don't they care that they are taking up hours that could be spent rewatching episodes of Game of Thrones?

Lessons Other Shows Can Learn From the 30 Rock Finale

Lessons Other Shows Can Learn From the <i>30 Rock</i> Finale

Rather than write a second long piece in praise of 30 Rock, add yet another blog post to the world about how Tina Fey changed television (though, she did) or try to convince you how much the series transformed TV while glazing over the fact that the show was almost unwatchable for two seasons, let's just focus on the finale... the very satisfying and heartfelt finale.

Parenthood: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

<i>Parenthood</i>: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

Parenthood is making it on to Best of 2012 lists, y'all. People are celebrating the Bravermans... influential people who sway executives to order more episodes and give extra money to shows. And after watching "What to My Wondering Eyes," is it really so surprising? My biggest complaint about this episode is that I don't get to sit around Zeek and Camille's Christmas tree (along with Max's sweet train) or wear new matching family scarves with the Braverman women. And where's my potty doll?

<i>Parenthood</i>: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

Do you think Kristina is going to die? I don't know, y'all. A few episodes ago, I would have given you a definite "no," but there are only six episodes left in this season (unless NBC orders more) and I'm starting to think that if the Parenthood writers believe this is the end, they'll go out with a bang and the saddest final silent montage in the history of this show. Maybe with Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate" playing over Adam coming home from his wife's funeral? I'm getting a tiny bit emotional just thinking about it, though to be clear I really just want her to get better and for her next storyline to be about like, I don't know, deciding to go back to school to become a nurse.

TWoP 10: Things We’ll Miss About <I>The Newsroom</i> Until Next Year

The Newsroom quickly became our favorite show to hate-watch this summer thanks to its ridiculous plotlines, insufferable characters and general condescending attitude. It'll be a struggle for us to get through a Sunday night without being so frustrated that we want to throw our remotes at our televisions. Here are the ten elements of the show that we're most going to miss as we wait for Season 2 next year:

TWoP 10: Things We’ll Miss About <I>Mad Men</i> After This Season

Knowing Matthew Weiner, we won't be seeing any more of the SCDP gang until sometime in the middle of 2013, if we're lucky -- if we're not, it might not be until 2014. Sure, that gives us time to process all of the jaw-dropping moments of Season 5, but there are also so many Mad Men idiosyncrasies we'll miss after the show ends its season this Sunday.

Bravo for Brienne and other superlatives from Game of Thrones's third episode, "What Is Dead May Never Die."
