Before it premiered last month, Fresh Off the Boat was looking like it was going to be the latest in a long line of Critically Admired ABC Comedies With Suboptimal Nielsen Ratings, such as Happy Endings, Cougar Town, and Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23. The network slotted the show Tuesdays at 8 p.m., opposite ratings juggernauts The Voice and NCIS, and with no established comedies around it to attract audiences. And yet, thanks to those rave reviews and great marketing by ABC — the network aired two episodes on its top-rated Wednesday comedy block before it landed on Tuesday — Boat has more than managed to stay afloat. It’s averaging over 7 million viewers each week and is drawing solid ratings with younger viewers. Season two isn’t assured, but it’s looking more and more likely (despite the misgivings of the real Eddie Huang, whose memoir inspired the »

TV shows either have to evolve or die when they outlive their original premise, argues Caroline. Change is vital to survival...
Television shows, network Us television shows especially, tend to start off with an obvious hook. The ability to describe a premise in a single word or sentence is a valuable part of getting something on the air in the first place, and so it’s no wonder we get a slew of pilots every year with silly one-word descriptors and obvious, over-the-top characterisations.
But what happens when a show outlives that part, and evolves into something that doesn’t even really resemble that original premise at all?
It happens more often than we may immediately realise, and it comes down to a number of factors. There are network notes soon after a show has premiered, but there's also audience reaction, sometimes so strong that it demands change for series »
Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.
Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.
Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Outlander, Shameless, Mad Men and Grey’s Anatomy!
1 | Did Outlander‘s angry make-up sex top the steamy wedding night? Or could you tell it was filmed before the infamous nuptials? And for book readers: Did the way the Starz series handled the spanking scene change your opinion of the subject matter at all?

Community's sixth season continues to deliver surrealism and absurdity in equal measure, as this robot-themed episode shows...
This review contains spoilers.
6.5 Laws Of Robotics & Party Rights
“What the hell kind of school is this?”
This line, one of the last from this week's episode, is delivered by a prison warden officiating over a wedding-like ceremony to make an iPad on a stick into a Professor Emeritus at Greendale. It just about sums this one up too. For all of its more grounded tendencies this season, few sitcoms have more “Wtf am I watching?” moments than Community.
This week's weirdness kicks off when the Colorado State Department of Corrections makes an offer that Greendale can't refuse- $300,000 to participate in a rehabilitation programme for dangerous prisoners, allowing them to attend community college via telepresence robots. However, Law professor Jeff soon butts heads with Willy, played by Cougar Town's Brian Van Holt, »
A review of this week's "Community" (available, as usual, on Yahoo Screen) coming up just as soon as I watch magicians bully jugglers... Though Jeff the student became Jeff the teacher last season, the show hasn't really done much with the idea, and I was glad to see so much of "Laws of Robotics and Party Rights" devoted to Jeff's class and his usual need to be the coolest guy in any room. Making his opponent be a convicted killer taking the class remotely via a telepresence robot(*) added an extra layer of absurdity to this type of story, but also an extra level of menace. The show made great use of the weird movements and sounds of the robot as it craned its neck up and down in hostile fashion, turning the whole story into a fun, strange mash-up of "Cape Fear" and "2001" (or insert your favorite prisoner revenge »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Ben Mendelsohn
The Show | Bloodline
The Episode | Part 2
The Performance | We never thought that anyone could steal the spotlight from the man who gave life to our beloved Coach Eric Taylor, but in the first few episodes of Netflix’s dark drama of family dysfunction Bloodline, a relative unknown (in this country, anyway) has done exactly that. Emmy winner Kyle Chandler may be the star of this engrossing new series, but Mendelsohn is its breakout performer.

1 | Really? Not one of these Walking Dead walkers has half a brain to simply (if even accidentally) lift the latch on the gate?

And is there any rational explanation for why Maggie didn’t warn her »
