In our now annual tradition, we're celebrating Mother's Day by calling out the very worst moms on TV this season. This year, we're particularly grateful that none of these women raised us. And the truly scary thing is that there's only two repeats from last year, and that's with leaving reality TV mothers off the list, which means there are some truly twisted matriarchs on the airwaves now.
From New York socialites to the New York musical theater world -- it's all drama, I suppose.
I see more Snatch Game in our futures.
The upcoming Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 is built upon the premise that people would deal with a crappy bitch of a roommate in order to live in a really great place. And you know what? We know the feeling. For the privilege of living in the following current and classic TV rental units, we'd pretty much cut off our right arms, or at least put up with someone who leaves wet towels all over the place or forgets to take out the trash.
Sometimes less is more and there's addition by subtraction. At least, in the case of some of our favorite shows, that is definitely true. We've identified TV's weakest links this season and have determined that their removal would guarantee an immediate uptick in the entertainment level of their respective shows. Here are the major characters that most need to go, for everyone's sake:
Bad news for people who hate musical theater.
As it turns out, network audiences hate really awful people on TV.
It's the time of year when networks start deciding which shows will get the axe and which ones will live for at least another season. While there are a host of shows in danger of getting cancelled, there are only a few that we'd actually like to see get a reprieve. Here's our wish-list, and don't worry, Terra Nova isn't on here... we've mostly forgotten that show ever existed.
If Smash is NBC's new Friends, is everyone going to start sporting "The Marylin"? I'll be here all week, folks.
This weekend during the Super Bowl, the longstanding rivalry between the Giants and the Patriots will come to a head. Again. While we're not really huge fans of the actual sporting event, we do appreciate a good showdown. So, in honor of the big game, we've ranked our favorite rivals (not to be confused with heroes and villains) on scripted TV this season.
