TWoP 10: Returning Shows We're Nervous About

With all of the fall 2012 returning shows fresh on our minds, we're getting a little bit antsy that our expectations are too high for some of our favorite series. As fun as big plot twists, new storylines and major changes in general are, what if the upcoming seasons can't match what's already happened? We're not so much freaked out about shows that are already bananas (like The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl), nor are we wasting our energy hoping that Glee transforms into an amazing series, but for these beloved shows, our nerves are starting to take over.

TWoP 10: Biggest Snubs By the 2012 Emmy Nominations

There were a lot of big surprises yesterday during the Emmy nominations, but most of them just served to make us angry. And while we've simmered down a bit, we're still very confused about the shows that the voters apparently watch. And we're pretty sure that sometimes they just see a recognizable film star's name, get excited and check their box, regardless of quality (that's the only way we can explain the love for Uma Thurman and Kathy Bates). Here are the snubs that we just can't believe:

TWoP 10: Worst Fathers on TV this Season

TWoP 10: Worst Fathers on TV this Season

Instead of honoring the great dads on TV (like the adorably weird Phil Dunphy or the sweet Danno) this Father's Day weekend, we decided to just be grateful that we aren't the offspring of this season's ten worst patriarchs. And believe it or not, only two guys from last time made this list, which means there were eight new terrible parents on TV in the past year.

TWoP 10: TV's Most Entertaining Roommates

The roommate dynamic has been one that has been mined for TV forever (just look at The Odd Couple and Laverne & Shirley), with Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 and Girls adding their own variations to the conceit this week. But which current sets of roomies are the most fun to watch?

TWoP 10: Best Apartments on TV

TWoP 10: Best Apartments on TV

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.

TWoP 10: Characters Whose Absence Would Instantly Improve Their Shows

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:

TWoP 10: Bubble Shows That Should Be Saved

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.

TWoP 10: Resolutions For TV Shows (The 2011 Edition)

We offered our New Year's resolutions for shows last year, but most of them didn't pan out. Guess that's the problem with resolutions in general. Here's hoping that more of these shows stick to the suggestions we've carved out for them in the coming year.

TWoP 10: Characters Who Most Deserve to Find Love

TWoP 10: Characters Who Most Deserve to Find Love

Coach Beiste found herself a sweet and appropriate beau this week on Glee, and if the unlikely football coach can find a love interest, then there's hope for anyone out there -- just look at Up All Night's Ava and Kenny on Man Up!, who got their own doses of tenderness, too (for now, anyways). We've identified these other lovelorn and lonely TV characters who most seem like they (and their shows) would benefit from a little bit of romance in their lives.

TWoP 10: TV Babies We Most Feel Sorry For

TWoP 10: TV Babies We Most Feel Sorry For

Television is no place for children. Between Teen Mom, Toddlers & Tiaras and Dance Moms, we cringe for those poor kids who are clearly growing up in dysfunctional homes. But as bad as it is to be forced into pageantry or to have Amber Portwood as your mother, at least reality kids don't have it quite has awful as many of the tykes on scripted series. Here are the ones that really need to have a fictional Child Protective Services intervene on their behalf:
