Battle Creek: Does This Procedural Boast CBS' Better Odd Couple?
8 hours ago
If you haven’t been able to catch an episode of CBS’ The Odd Couple reboot yet, fret not: The network uses many of the same elements in its newest procedural crime drama, Battle Creek, which debuted Sunday.
There’s the disheveled curmudgeon — in this case, Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters, Law & Order: Svu). There’s the well-dressed know-it-all: Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel, Las Vegas). And there’s a series of unfortunate circumstances that bring the unlikely duo together, forcing them to be a team in spite of their differences.

Secrets and Lies: What's Your Verdict on ABC's New Murder Mystery?
8 hours ago
Seemingly good-natured painter Ben Garner (MacGruber‘s Ryan Phillippe) claims he’s innocent in the death of his 5-year-old neighbor — but is he merely hiding his true intentions? Perhaps those of a cruel nature?

That’s what a trench coat-clad Juliette Lewis (Wayward Pines), as no-nonsense detective Andrea Cornell, is trying to figure out in ABC’s Secrets and Lies, which kicked off Sunday with a two-hour premiere. Frankly, Ben’s just lucky the Fashion Police are preoccupied with their own drama, or else they’d probably be on his case, »
Downton Abbey Season Finale Recap: 'Proposals and Propositions'
8 hours ago
In a strange way, Sunday’s Downton Abbey finale brought Season 5 full circle, as the Crawleys’ annual Christmas vacation — this time to visit Rose’s hellish new in-laws at Brancaster Castle — nearly went down in flames. (Remember that? Honestly, Edith…)

But let’s start with the only thing that really matters: Carson and Mrs. Hughes got engaged! And while I’m obviously over the damn moon about it, I have to admit I was surprised to see their relationship progress so quickly over the past few weeks. Remember how long it took them just »
Good Wife Recap: Cash Twenty-Two
9 hours ago
Alicia Florrick has a gay brother who happens to be one of her closest confidantes — an inconvenient truth my brain struggled mightily to suppress during this week’s installment of The Good Wife.
After all, to acknowledge the Alicia-Owen bond while big sis made not a peep of protest during a homophobic rant by a potential fat-cat campaign donor (a fantastically nasty Ed Asner) raised some painful questions: Has a heated run for state’s attorney cracked Alicia’s moral compass? Has her desire for victory and thirst for power turned her into a “bad person”? Or has Alicia always »
The Last Man on Earth: Is Fox's New Post-Apocalyptic Comedy a Survivor?
9 hours ago
You know all of those gross things you do when no one’s watching? Fox has built a comedic series premiere around them — and Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte — and it’s called The Last Man on Earth.
In Last Man‘s double-episode kickoff, which aired Sunday, Forte’s Phil Miller traverses the country in the year 2020, “one year after the virus,” a subtitle informs us. As far as Phil can tell, he’s the last person left in the United States — possibly the world.

The Walking Dead Recap: Our Town?
9 hours ago
If I were Rick, I’d have been hanging a “Home, Sweet Home” sign in the Alexandria Safe-Zone before the gates had even shut behind me. But in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, he (and a few key members of his ragtag band) instead looked upon the pristine community with as much skepticism as optimism.

Up front, I want to say that I have my reservations about Season 4B and the Queens of Darkness storyline. I’m Ok with a multi-pronged threat, but this team-up comes off just a bit random. And in this first episode, Cruella’s the only one who delivered any color »
