THE SKED NETWORK SCORECARD – 12/15/13

  On a night dotted with football (adjusted up below to anticipated final numbers), it didn’t pay to be the odd network out. ABC:  The fall finale of ONCE UPON A TIME didn’t go the way ABC had hoped, dropping 0.2 ...

THE SKED Season Finale Review: “Homeland”

  After three seasons on the air, it seems fair to say that–paraphrasing Star Wars—Homeland isn’t the show we were looking for.  That doesn’t make it a bad series, or an unentertaining one.  But i...

THE SKED Season Finale Review: “Masters of Sex”

  Michelle Ashford’s series MASTERS OF SEX has been the extraordinary surprise of the fall television season.  It seemed, on its face, to be dauntingly unpromising.  In telling the story of sex researchers William ...

THE SKED Fall Finale Review: “Once Upon A Time”

  It seems that for many viewers, ONCE UPON A TIME has become too conceptual for its own good.  The ratings, so robust just 2 seasons ago, have continued to sink (down another full ratings point this season), and while On...

THE SKED Fall Finale Review: “Revenge”

  Improved isn’t the same as good, and the first half of REVENGE‘s third season has languished in the gulf between those two.  Under new showrunner Sunil Nayar (who replaced series creator Mike Kelley), Reveng...

THE SKED Review: “Saturday Night Live” with John Goodman

  The most inventive part of tonight’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE really wasn’t, because it was almost certainly unintentional.  Nevertheless, it was sort of brilliant, in a “found art” sort of way.  Soo...

THE SKED FRIDAY NETWORK SCORECARD

  Embattled ABC fared the best on a slow night. ABC:  LAST MAN STANDING was down 0.2 from last week to 1.2, but things improved after that, as THE NEIGHBORS held at 0.9, SHARK TANK was easily the highest rated show of the...

THE SKED Season Finale Review: “Haven”

  Season 4 of HAVEN was its most ambitious by far.  Under showrunners Matt McGuinness and Gabrielle Stanton, the series delved into its own mythology more deeply than it ever has before, moving past its initial rote Troub...

THE SKED Fall Finale Review: “Scandal”

  The concept of a “finale” as an event calling for special plot revelations and narrative shockers is almost irrelevant to SCANDAL, where every episode brings massive twists.  This is a show, after all, set i...

THE SKED Fall Finale Review: “Grey’s Anatomy”

  GREY’S ANATOMY doesn’t get much attention these days, not even compared to its creator Shonda Rhimes’s shinier Scandal—Grey’s is just a soap–but after 10 years, it still knows how to p...
