I have a feeling we're going to have a talk about what Glee declares "guilty pleasures" tomorrow...


Jon Hamm will be wearing tighter pants in the upcoming season of Mad Men! Unfortunately, producers also asked him to wear underwear so viewers wouldn't spend the season watching if Hamm consistently dresses to the right. Still, let's focus on the positive — tighter pants!

TV Land has ordered a fifth season of Hot in Cleveland, which will bring she comedy to its 100th episode.

According to a study by Nielsen, Twitter can predict a show's success in the ratings. Basically, an increase in how much people tweet about a show predicts an eventual increase in the ratings. That seems obvious, but this study measures and quantifies the connection between the two.

Fox is currently developing two potential mini-series and now it's considering two more. One would be about the O. J. Simpson »

TV on Tap: A Reality TV Take on "Girls," Jennifer Hudson Thinks It's Time for "American Idol" to End and "Fox & Friends" Misreads "Downton Abbey"

White Collar returns tonight. Neal needs to stop looking so hot when he's feeling distrustful,

it only encourages people to do distrustful things to him.


I've been watching the right try to claim that Downton Abbey is a conservative show. Jonah Goldberg wrote about it a couple weeks back and now Fox & Friends repeated that Downton challenges how "rich people... are reviled". Wow. That just says so much about how little they pay attention to everything. I'll be willing to consider that idea when Lord Grantham orders Mrs. Patmore to start using questionable ingredients when she cooks for the staff so that he can afford to have fancier wines with dinner.

Fox's ads for The Following broke a rule for television and asked viewers to watch the show on the DVR. Vulture explains what this means and how its another step in changing how viewers watch TV and how the industry responds to it. »
