TWoP 10: Hardest Working Characters on Summer TV

With Labor Day upon us, we thought we'd take a moment to recognize the underappreciated folks on TV (real and scripted) who have really busted their asses this summer in order to get their jobs done -- whatever they may be. For their sake (and in some cases ours), we're hoping they take a well-deserved long weekend to rest.

Judgment Daze: We Rate This Summer's Reality TV Judges

Some of us may still be recovering from the cultural moment that was American Idol, but it looks like there's no rest for the weary reality fan ahead. A plethora of talent competition shows, including The Voice, America's Got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance and last night's Platinum Hit, all take center stage this summer. But no matter how fantastic, absurd, or otherwise unpredictable their respective contestants are, it's the judges that give them their -- pardon the pun -- voice, not to mention their mood, sense of humor and overall vibe. And yes, they also give the shows their legitimacy (or lack thereof). Here's how each judge rates:

TWoP 10: Guiltiest Summer TV Pleasures of 2010

It's summertime, so we've happily lowered our standards in regard to what we'll watch on television. But there is low and then there are shows that we're more than a little bit ashamed to admit that we not only watch... but actually enjoy. On occasion we discover shows like Pretty Little Liars, which we think we're going to have to DVR in secret but that then turn out to be genuinely well done. Or shows like True Blood, which is basically sexy vampire porn, but are OK because all our friends watch, too. But the rest of them... well, they wind up on our don't ask, don't tell list. But if you watched them as well, we'd feel a whole lot better about it. Here's our top (or bottom) ten:

America May Not Have a Ton of Talent, But They Sure Do Have Freaks to Spare

Yes, I complained about America's Got Talent the other day, but I decided to give the show a shot, as I reluctantly do each year. Last night's episode was filled with the usual assortment of talented kids, bad impersonators, delusional dancers/singers/pet owners/flame throwers and a few impressive acts. Add in some heartfelt stories, Nick Cannon discussing how he wants to try out different acrobatic things with his wife in the bedroom (repeatedly) and you've got yourself one of the summer's biggest hits. Still not my cup of tea.

TWOP 10: Life Lessons My TV Taught Me

TWOP 10: Life Lessons My TV Taught Me The producers responsible for The Baby Borrowers will be airing a reunion special on August 6th in order to defend their show and prove that it's "more than just entertainment." Apparently, in light of all the recent (lousy) press, executives feel they need to prove that the show is really teaching teenage couples -- and, by proxy, America -- an important life lesson about parenting. With this in mind, I came up with my own list of the ten invaluable life lessons TV has afforded me. I don't mean to brag, but think I've got the world pretty well figured out. And I didn't even have to leave my couch!

TWoP 10: Shows That Give America a Bad Name… Literally

My fellow Americans (and loyal international readers) today is the one day a year we grab our flags and celebrate being from this great country by remembering the struggles that our forefathers went through. Well our forefathers would probably be rolling in their collective graves if they could see how the name "America" has been adopted by some of TV's most popular offerings. If this batch of programming is how our country is represented to the rest of the world, it isn't such a surprise that they hate us or think we are morons.
