The 20 Best TV Villains of the 21st Century

  • Indiewire
Ask the average viewer to conjure up their idea of a TV villain, their answers might vary: Perhaps a spiked baseball bat-wielding maniac or a faceless Killer of the Week on a police procedural.

And then there are some villains that have existed in various forms on the small screen for decades: abstract ideas like alcoholism, technology, or ratings. As the line between reality and fiction start to blur and a non-stop entertainment news apparatus churns ever on, even people from off-screen within network power structures have frequently worn the black hat, from Ailes to Zucker.

Superior Donuts: Season Two Ratings

  • TVSeriesFinale
Last year, although it earned much lower demo ratings and drew a somewhat smaller total viewership than the cancelled The Great Indoors, CBS renewed its Superior Donuts TV show for a second season. We may never know if it was the premise, the writing, the cast, or an executive with a sweet tooth that saved this fledgling sitcom. What matters now is whether or not it can retain or even build upon its freshman season audience. Will Superior Donuts be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. A CBS comedy based on the Tracy Letts play of the same name, Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch, Jermaine Fowler, Katey Sagal, David Koechner, Maz Jobrani, Anna Baryshnikov, Darien Sills-Evans, Rell Battle, and Diane Guerrero.

The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Blu-Ray Review

The Big Bang Theory, to be completely upfront, is a show that didn’t do much for me until at least the fifth season, which means I had to be convinced to watch it again. It always had a few laughs mixed in, but it was goofier than necessary and everything felt very forced. It wasn’t until about the seventh season that the show actually hit its stride, and that was mostly a result of having to adapt the characters, and the ways in which this was accomplished.

The tenth season only adds the show’s best efforts, especially when following the “adulting” of the crew. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Kuoco) are married, but they run through their marriage again, which sets the stage for a very different dynamic, especially considering that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has to factor in somewhere. Running through things again includes family, which
