Tuning in to the two-hour season premiere of ABC's "Lost," I did something I haven't done with a commercial broadcast TV drama all year. I stopped everything else I was doing, leaned forward excitedly, and watched. If broadcast television has a future, the future is "Lost." And shows like it...

Patrick McGoohan may have died, but The Prisoner isn't going anywhere, except into every home on the planet. AMC has started streaming all 17 episodes of McGoohan's surreal '60s classic as a lead-up to the cabler's modern re-think debuting later this year...

Patrick McGoohan's death at age 80 this week, announced Tuesday, was a sad event -- made sadder by the realization that, in the media world of 2009, few editors and opinion-makers seemed to know or care who he was and what he contributed to TV alone...

If you've never seen an all-midget western musical, here's your chance. And if you've already been, um, lucky enough to catch The Terror of Tiny Town, you can savor it again late Friday night on Turner Classic Movies...

For the next three Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET, PBS presents a six-hour humor documentary. Not a funny documentary, like "This is Spinal Tap!," but a documentary about funny. And, thankfully, it's funny...

It's that time of year -- time for the Fox network to relaunch its two most important mid-season weapons. "American Idol" returns Tuesday, and "24" returns Sunday. Both are coming back in slightly retooled, but still recognizable, models for 2009...
