"Grimm" is, well, grim. If this were my actual review, you would think I was being obvious and ham-fisted, and maybe even a little lazy. But even if I did write something that bad, it still wouldn't be as obvious and ham-fisted and clunky as this new NBC drama...

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"...

"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...

The hour drama pilot I just inserted into my DVD player is beyond terrible. It shouldn't be terrible. There are good actors in it, and the creative team is a TV A-team. But bad things happen to dramas and comedies... How does this happen?...

Only in TV can bringing an award show in at three hours be considered a major accomplishment. The 62nd Annual Emmy Awards telecast last night ended on time. And Jimmy Fallon, a talented guy and a capable host, was sometimes better than his actual material. But there was plenty more left to discuss around the water cooler...

The first Olympics I clearly remember was Grenoble, 1968. Instead of pictures of Monkees or Beatles in my high school locker, I had pictures of Peggy Fleming and Jean-Claude Killy. I wanted to marry Killy...
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 

Theresa Corigliano

Theresa Corigliano has loved and worked in the television business, in some way or another, since she was old enough to read the TV Guide that came through the mail slot every Thursday. Even back then, though she wasn't bright enough to invent it, she wondered why TiVo didn't exist. She has been a television critic, a network and a studio executive, and has toiled in production and as a writer. She is completely aware that she has quirky tastes, and welcomes your comments agreeing or challenging same.
