Summer is in full swing and the TV season is drying up. While cable gems like True Blood and Burn Notice keep me sufficiently entertained, the promise of a brand-new onslaught of shows this fall has me a lot more excited. With more than 20 new shows to sample this fall, it‘s hard to figure out which ones are worth your time, but I‘ve already got my Must-Watch viewing list down to five.  Read more »

For some, September is synonymous with school, the last breath of summer, and fall wardrobe shopping (OK, well I don‘t really do that, but I know some of you do.) More importantly than sharpened pencils and sweaters however is that fact that September also signals a slew of TV premiere dates.  Read more »
It‘s no secret that Hollywood has all but given up on original ideas. If they can take something with brand recognition (for example: this summer‘s A-Team movie), slap on a new coat of paint, and ultimately make a buck or two, they are all for it. It doesn‘t matter that the end product is something that vaguely resembles the primary source, and usually leaves a residual bad taste in everyone‘s mouth. So as it goes in Hollywood, what once was old can now be: newer, sexier, faster, younger, and lamer. This fall‘s TV season is no exception; we have: reboots (Nikita), spinoffs (Law & Order: LA), and blatant rip-offs (The Event) all over the tube.So with that in mind, you can imagine my trepidation when approaching the new version of Hawaii 5-0 on CBS. Aside from the killer theme song (seriously one of the best theme songs, and don‘t worry, they don‘t mess with it too badly), I didn‘t know too much about the original series which aired on CBS from 1968-1980. Turns out, it‘s probably better that way. The new Hawaii 5-0 (that‘s 5-zero this time, not 5-letter o) is really only a remake in: name, location, a catchphrase, and theme song. You don‘t really need to know anything else to enjoy this surprisingly watchable police procedural set in the nation‘s 50th state.  Read more »
Monday was the official start of the fall season with 12 shows premiering on the major networks. With all networks going head-to-head, the ratings can predict what shows will succeed and which will fail.  Read more »
The ratings for premiere week are always a little inflated due to the excitement of a return, but the second Monday of the fall TV season paints a more accurate picture. Most shows fell in the ratings for week 2, including new shows like The Event, Hawaii Five-0 and even Lone Star.  Read more »
The fall season got off to a rough start with quick cancellations for FOX‘s Lone Star and ABC‘s My Generation, but things are looking up. Yesterday CBS picked up all five of its new shows for full seasons, and today the CW did the same for its new fall shows, Nikita and Hellcats. In addition, the CW ordered a full season for One Tree Hill.  Read more »
It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People‘s Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder‘s highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it‘s an embarrassment. Read more »
This morning the Golden Glode Award nominations were announced, and the TV side featured some truly outrageous nominations. While shows like Glee and 30 Rock picked up many expected nominations, who could‘ve seen someone like Scott Caan getting nominated for Hawaii Five-0? Or Piper Perabo for USA‘s Covert Affairs?The Golden Globes also gave love to new shows like Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead and The Big C. Read more »
Welcome to The GBU, a weekly column coming every Monday where I look at the Good, the Bad and the Ugly on TV.   I watch more TV than anyone I know, between 60 and 70 hours each week, every week. Doing the math, that amounts to roughly 3,500 hours, or nearly 40 percent of my life, spent watching TV in 2010.  Read more »

It looks like nobody watched TV last night. Maybe people were too busy taking advantage of the fact that national parks are still open for business, but viewership was down across the board on Monday night, resulting in some of the worst ratings for top shows.Both Chuck and How I Met Your Mother hit all-time series lows for total viewers with their new episodes, while House had its lowest-rated episode since the first seven episodes of season 1 back in 2004.  Read more »
Overtime during the Heat/Celtics game might have contributed to some of the falling ratings for primetime television last night, with Chuck, Dancing with the Stars and How I Met Your Mother all dipping considerably in viewers from last week. However, a few resilient shows managed to weather the ratings slump. Read more »
Monday night was full of shocking season finales and giant cliffhangers. Barney‘s getting married on How I Met Your Mother (but to whom?), Naomi is pregnant with Max‘s baby on 90210 and Chuck completely changed the game for the 47th time with a brilliant setup for the final season. I‘m sure Gossip Girl did something too, but I gave up on that show a long time ago.The two best season finales, however, came from the 10pm cop dramas Castle and Hawaii Five-0, and though these two shows are world‘s apart, they had very similar season finales. Let‘s look at the evidence:  Read more »
Finales ruled Monday night, with Chuck, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, and How I Met Your Mother all enjoying hefty ratings increases with their season finales. And of course Dancing with the Stars fared well. We also said goodbye forever to a few shows.Castle wrangled a whopping 13.21 million, while Hawaii Five-0 managed 9.83 million. Both shows featured huge cliffhangers in their season finales, leaving fans hungry for more. How I Met Your Mother had 7.11 million viewers. Chuck‘s season finale drew 4.47 million viewers. All four shows are returning next season (Chuck for its final 13 episodes), but fans have a long summer ahead of them. Read more »
Last year CBS shook up its schedule by moving two of its strongest performers, The Big Bang Theory and Survivor, and now the network is doing it again.CBS has revealed its fall 2011 schedule, and the biggest changes come with moves for two of the networks biggest dramas, CSI and The Good Wife.
