    Why ABC's New Musical Drama 'Nashville' is Smarter Than The Average Soap

    "Nashville" is not without precedent -- like "Smash," it follows in the music-centric footsteps of "Glee," offering songs (T-Bone Burnett is the music producer) and backstage drama, and like the Broadway drama it aims for a more grown-up audience.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Continues To Spin Its Wheels With 'Blue Bell Boy'

    In retrospect, perhaps we’ve been too generous about the slow pace of “Boardwalk Empire” season three. After all, even one of our comrades at IndieWIRE, Anne Thompson, said she was dismayed at HBO’s decision to renew the show for a fourth season considering the molasses like rhythm of season three s...

    What Kind of Ending Do We Want for Liz Lemon and '30 Rock'?

    "30 Rock" kicked off its final season last night with the aptly titled "The Beginning of the End," which also happens to be the name of a 2008 "Lost" episode (hence the Dharma Initiative ice cream at the dinner party). Six years in, the show is still one of the better c...

    Recap: Nucky & Gyp Rosetti Seemed Poised For A Showdown In ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Episode 3 'Bone For Tuna'

    'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 2: A Deep Specificity of Culture

    After the giddily happy-sad ending of the ambitious "Late Night" arc that took up the previous three episodes of "Louie," it was inevitable that last night's actual season finale, "New Year's Eve," felt a little anticlimactic. It even started at what for so many...
