Bravo will continue inhibiting my social life with reality shows, Flavor Flav wants to be perceived as smart, and Sesame Street did something cute!
We criticize a lot of television on this site... some of it before we even watch it. So when we saw that a ton of new TV shows were announced for 2010 this past week, we figured we'd get a head start on things and start dissecting them now. (Don't worry, we'll watch them when they come out for real; this is just a warm-up.) These are some of the 2010 shows we're looking forward to, and some that we just aren't.
ABC Family tried their hand at capturing some of that Hot in Cleveland magic with last night's premiere of Melissa & Joey, a sitcom starring two '90s icons -- Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. Like Hot in Cleveland, the show is hackneyed and miserably unfunny, but unlike Hot in Cleveland, at least I can't really say its scripts are beneath its stars.
Former Dawson's Creek cutie Katie Holmes made a big splash this week when it was announced that she'd be returning to the small screen in a guest role on Eli Stone. Her former co-star Joshua Jackson also landed a gig on the hopefully decent fall series Fringe. Not to even mention that practically the entire cast of 90210 is either heading back for the spinoff or adamantly denying that they are (they'll change their minds in a year.) Apparently everything old (well, 15 years old) is new again. Yay! Here are the ten people we'd really like to see back on the small screen in a nice juicy recurring role or guest gig.
