I was about as conflicted as "Hell on Wheels" antihero Cullen Bohannon, Confederate soldier turned vigilante, seeking the men responsible for the death of his wife..Bohannon's your archetypal Western hero -- driven, mysterious and glowery, yet with a nugget of goodness inside (his Yankee wife persuaded him to give his slaves their freedom), even as he murders his way across the country...

Technically, I may not be a Ripperologist, but I have always been fascinated by the story of the infamous serial killer who haunted London's East End in the 19th century and was never found. Years ago, I worked on the miniseries with Michael Caine, who starred as Inspector Abberline of Scotland Yard...

I didn't think Kelsey Grammer could do it, but I have to hand it to him. In the new Starz drama series "Boss," with his edgy, calibrated, scary performance as Tom Kane, the Machiavellian mayor of Chicago with a devastating secret, Grammer blots out any memories of Frasier Crane...

This fall TV season has been particularly disillusioning. Could every single show I watched be as bad as it seemed? Second viewings of almost everything told the sad truth. Other than a few shows, there was nothing that was must-see...Which is why it was a happy accident that I recently watched previews of "American Horror Story," and "Homeland"...

TVWW contributor Theresa Corigliano, who has a dance background as part of her very full resume, attended the Los Angeles auditions of Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," which returns for season eight tonight at 8 ET. "The good ones make it look easy," she writes. "My admiration comes from the muscle memory that it is not..." --DB

The thing I remember most from my years at CBS working on Everybody Loves Raymond is the sound of Phil Rosenthal's laugh. I always welcomed hearing that laugh. Who wouldn't? In Russia, not so much...
