Why TLC quickly ditched 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'

24 October 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why TLC quickly ditched “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Quick and decisive action was the only choice TLC had to make, says Josef Adalian, because it’s better to be safe than sorry. Plus, if the facts of the situation change, TLC could easily un-cancel the show. Still, “Honey Boo Boo’s” ratings have declined recently, and its loss won’t really hurt TLC. Mama June’s 20-year-old daughter Chickadee claims she was also victimized by the same child molester TMZ reports that Anna Cardwell, Aka Chickadee, who is married with a child, says she was also molested, at age 8, by the child molester whom Mama June is allegedly dating.

Bad Judge: Season One Ratings

17 October 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Kate Walsh had a long run playing Addison Montgomery, first on Grey's Anatomy and then on Private Practice. Will her Bad Judge TV show last as long on NBC or will it be cancelled after one short season? Stay tuned.

Bad Judge follows Rebecca Wright (Walsh), an unorthodox judge of the Los Angeles County Circuit Court. She's tough-as-nails and one of La's most respected criminal court judges but has a truly wild lifestyle in her off hours. The rest of the cast includes Tone Bell, Ryan Hansen, John Ducey, and Miguel Sandoval.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »

Bad Judge: Cancel or Keep the NBC Sitcom?

17 October 2014 12:21 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Following Kate Walsh's long run on ABC, the peacock network likely has great expectations for her Bad Judge sitcom. Is it a ratings hit? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Bad Judge follows Rebecca Wright (Walsh), an unorthodox judge of the Los Angeles County Circuit Court. She's tough-as-nails and one of Los Angeles' most respected criminal court judges but she also has a truly wild lifestyle in her off hours. The rest of the cast includes Tone Bell, Ryan Hansen, John Ducey, and Miguel Sandoval.

The show debuted on October 2nd with a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.84 million viewers. This certainly wasn't a great start. The second installment drew a 1.3 in the demo with 5.24 million.

While Bad Judge's ratings aren't very good, it's positive that the numbers didn't go down that »

Kate Walsh Shares '90s Throwback Picture of "Unfortunate" Blond Bob Haircut—Take a Peek!

6 October 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

File this under another reason to love Kate Walsh. When a fan tweeted a flashback photo of Kate from decades ago sporting a very dated 'do, the Grey's Anatomy actress wasn't afraid to have a little fun at her own expense. Kate retweeted the photo with the caption, "An unfortunate hair choice in the late 90s." We love that Kate can fully embrace her cringe-worthy beauty moments from the past, because we've all got 'em. In the '90s pic, Kate has a haircut that we would dub a "mushroom-style bob." The dyed blond bob is voluminous up top and then curves down toward her chin, creating a heart-shaped effect. And to make the pic even more retro, Kate is wearing lilac eye »

‘Bad Judge’ Review: Kate Walsh Plays a Walking Disaster in the Even Worse NBC Comedy

2 October 2014 9:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you have not yet seen the series premiere of NBC's “Bad Judge” entitled “Pilot.”) After watching Kate Walsh prance around for 30 minutes as the poster child for a grown-up who never really grew up, I'm still not sure whether I hate NBC's “Bad Judge,” or just find it incredibly dumb. Maybe a little of both. Walsh is a fantastic actress with a wide range of talents, including comedy, but none of them were on display here. While there is potential in the concept of a respected judge on the bench who is. »

'Bad Judge' premiere react: Pilot lives up to its name in quality, not in spirit

2 October 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The pilot to Bad Judge feels off. That's not unexpected for a show that's already had two showrunners, a heavily revised first episode, and major cast alterations before the pilot has even premiered. Out of all of the behind-the-scenes calamity, though, comes a pilot that looks more like Frankenstein's Monster than a half-hour comedy. It's an episode that stitches together parts of completely different concepts in the hopes of making something cohesive, but instead delivers an episode nothing short of erratic. In the patchwork of a pilot, Bad Judge is missing just about every key ingredient—coherent plotting, concrete characterization, »

NBC's Bad Judge: What's Your Verdict?

2 October 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s hard to tell whether we should be impressed by Rebecca Wright, or just feel a little sorry for her.

Based on the series premiere of Bad Judge, I’m guessing it’s a little of both.

In the freshman comedy, which debuted Thursday on NBC, Private Practice‘s Kate Walsh stars as the titular judge, who’s excellent in the courtroom — but outside it? Well, she’s a mess. (Exhibit A: In the first five minutes of the show, she oversleeps, grabs a pregnancy test on her way to work, then celebrates its negative results as she walks into a sentencing. »

Series premiere talkback: 'Bad Judge' - 'Pilot'

2 October 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I posted my review of "Bad Judge" on Monday. Not it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Was Kate Walsh's judge too bad, not bad enough, or just right? Could you identify which scenes were leftovers from the original pilot and which were added later? (And did you notice the many continuity mistakes that happened as the result of the Frankenstein approach?) Did you like Ryan Hansen (doing his second "Bad" sitcom in a row) as Walsh's sex buddy? Tone Bell as the bailiff? The kid whom the revised pilot goes out of its way to write out hastily? Did you laugh? And will you watch again? Have at it. And enjoy Kate Walsh's Photoshopped puppet legs one more time. »

Everyone on NBC's Bad Judge Deserves Better

2 October 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

She's a baaaad judge. She has hangovers. She drives a scuzzy van and has sex on her desk. She wears shorts. She has several pairs of glasses. Buh-buh-buh-baaaad to the bone. She's so bad, she sexually harasses the lawyers who are arguing cases in front of her, and she has everyone in the courtroom arrested because who even cares about the abuse of judicial power? Ha, ha, ha, she's a bad judge. Bad, bad, bad.Bad Judge, which premieres at 9 p.m. tonight on NBC, is a bad show, though it has a pretty solid cast. Kate Walsh stars as Rebecca Wright, and one hopes when this show gets canceled — which it will, perhaps by the time you're done reading this paragraph — she heads back to ShondaLand, either returning to Grey's Anatomy or maybe doing an arc on Scandal. She could even be a bad judge on How to »

The Office’s Angela Kinsey is returning to NBC on its new upcoming series Bad Judge.

Michelle and Rebecca are the Thelma and Louise of the San Fernando Valley. (As she never saw the ending of the movie, »

Kate Walsh Plays an "Unapologetic" Mess in Her New NBC Comedy Bad Judge

2 October 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

An intelligent, hard-working and successful woman whose professional life is perfect, but whose personal life is, well, less so? Yes, Kate Walsh's new gig starring on NBC's Bad Judge may not sound like a huge stretch from her days on Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice as Dr. Addison Montgomery, but Judge Rebecca Wright makes Addison look like pretty tame.

"It's two different beasts," Walsh tells "I think Addison is probably more sophisticated for sure. [Rebecca]'s a little more edgy."

That's a serious understatement....
