Yes, it's that time of year for deep appreciation to those who delivered the best in television in a variety of genres. 2010 was a very good year for the smallscreen, full of surprises like CBS remaking "Hawaii Five-0" and doing it well, to Showtime taking a chance on a new unscripted format for the top comedians in the world to shine in Paul Provenza's "The Green Room," which thankfully is coming back for another season. Reflection of what turned us on reveals we like cable and premium cable a crapload more than network fare, so if you were looking for a list that had "Glee", "Gossip Girl" or "Modern Family" in it, you need to go »

The People's Choice awards are just a little over a week away, and believe it or not there is still time to support your favorite New Drama or Comedy show. Those two categories will remain open until the awards air on January 5th, which means fans of the comedies - "$#*! My Dad Says," "Better With You," "Mike & Molly," "Outsourced" and "Raising Hope" - as well as the dramas - "The Event," "Hawaii Five-0," "Hellcats," "Nikita" and "No Ordinary Family" - still have time to scare up votes for their respective favorites. (Full list of TV related Pca nominees here.)
In the meantime, CBS has released a list of celebs that are planning on attending the People's Choice Awards - and it looks like a who's who of popular TV. Here's the lowdown from CBS:

A night full of repeats has been dominated by a rerun of Two and a Half Men which scored 9.70 million viewers and a 2.4 rating/6 share among adults 18-49. CBS capped off the evening with repeats of Mike & Molly (8.24 million viewers; A18-49: 2.0/5) and Hawaii Five-0 (5.70 million viewers; A18-49: 1.7/5).
Earlier in the evening, CBS aired reruns of How I Met Your Mother (6.43 million viewers; A18-49: 1.9/6) and Rules of Engagement (5.52 million viewers; A18-49: 1.7/5). Finally, CBS ensured Monday victory in total viewers and adults 18-49.
Third-placed Fox opened the night with a repeat of House (4.04 million viewers; A18-49: 1.2/3) followed by a rerun of Lie to Me (2.92 million viewers; A18-49: 0.8/2). A triple repeat of »

Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 27, 2010
Monday's highest-rated show will likely end up being "Monday Night Football" on Espn. On the broadcast networks, though, CBS coasted to a win with a lineup of reruns, with "Two and a Half Men" leading the way.
CBS averaged 7.6 million viewers and a 4.8 rating/8 share in households for the night, beating second-place ABC (5.5 million, 3.3/5) by a couple million viewers. Fox came in third with 3.5 million viewers and a 2.2/4. NBC (2.7 million, 1.7/3) took fourth, and The CW (876,000, 0.5/1) trailed.
CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 1.9 rating, beating out ABC's 1.6. Fox's 1.0 was good enough for third, followed by NBC (0.8) and The CW (0.3).
Monday hour by hour:
ABC: Movie - "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (5.3 million, 3.1/5)
Fox: "House" rerun (4 million, 2.5/4)
NBC: "Chuck" rerun (3.3 million, 2.1/3)

I have good news and bad news for fans of Taryn Manning, who have been patiently waiting for her Hawaii Five-0 character (Steve McGarrett's spunky kid sis, MaryAnn) to break out with a stronger screen presence. The Jan. 3 episode finally allows the actress to take center stage when MaryAnn gets kidnapped. It's all part of a plot connected to the villainous Wo Fat and the murder of Steve and MaryAnn's mother. But — without giving away the tearjerker ending — something happens during the course of the episode that could potentially make this Taryn's swan song on the CBS crime drama.
The drama begins when Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) rushes to his sister's new apartment and discovers...

CBS has set its midseason schedule, and since the network is pretty healthy this season it's more about tweaks than a radical makeover.
The Eye will debut three new scripted shows and Paula Abdul's competition series "Live to Dance" in the first few months of 2011. It's also moving a couple of its current shows around, giving "Blue Bloods" a four-week tryout on Wednesday nights and sending "The Defenders" to Fridays to fill the spot being vacated by "Medium."
The new scripted shows are "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," a spinoff of "Criminal Minds" that will air after its parent show on Wednesday nights; comedy "Mad Love," which slides into the post-"How I Met Your Mother" slot on Mondays in late February; and "Chaos," a drama about CIA officers that will debut on Fridays in April. "Live to Dance" premieres Tuesday, Jan. 4, the moves to Wednesdays the following night, holding »
CBS is one of the last networks to announce its midseason schedule and it turns out it contains a few shake-ups. The ending of Medium and some schedule changes will make way for a few new midseason shows.
The first big change is the time-slot switch between Blue Bloods and The Defenders. Blue Bloods had been averaging a respectable 12 million viewers on Friday nights, but CBS has decided to move it into the 10:00 p.m. spot on Wednesday, previously held by The Defenders. Curiously, though, Blue Bloods will only remain on Wednesday nights for 4 consecutive weeks. The Defenders, in turn, will be moving to 8:00 p.m. on Friday nights and is expected to remain on Friday nights for the remainder of the season.
CBS has made a few changes to its midseason schedule, throwing the Criminal Minds spin-off into the mix and shifting around a couple new dramas.
Where will you find Blue Bloods and The Defenders on certain nights? The following rundown of airdates reveals all...
Wednesdays, beginning January 19
8 p.m. Live to Dance

CBS announced its midseason lineup on Tuesday, including debut dates for the Criminal Minds spinoff and the new comedy Mad Love plus new nights for Blue Bloods and The Defenders. Blue Bloods, the season’s No. 2 freshman series among viewers and Friday’s top program in viewers and adults 25-54, will move to Wednesdays at 10 for four consecutive weeks beginning Jan. 19 and return to its regular Friday time period on Feb. 11.
The Defenders, currently airing Wednesdays, relocates to Fridays at 8 starting Feb. 4. Rules of Engagement will also move from Mondays to Thursdays at 8:30 beginning Feb. 24.

DVR use may have gone up this fall compared to last, but the shows people are recording haven't changed a whole lot.
"Hawaii Five-0" began the 2010-11 season as the most DVR'd show on television, and it's kept that title through 11 weeks. CBS' crime show is adding an average of almost 3.2 million viewers per episode, according to Nielsen's "live-plus-7" ratings. The show's same-day average audience is 11.5 million people, but that jumps to 14.7 million with a week of DVR use, a gain of 27.7 percent.
It will be interesting to see if people keep recording "Five-0" at such a high rate once the new year starts or if, once "Monday Night Football" ends and that audience is freed up, a few more people start watching the show in its regular timeslot.
For the most part, shows that do well with live viewers also are pretty heavily recorded: "The Mentalist," "Modern Family," "Glee »
That’s not how Fox would have visualized things: Million Dollar Money Drop got off on the moderate foot. However, the two-hour season finale of The Sing-Off topped night with adults 18-49. What else happened on Monday…
NBC scored Monday victory in the demo. The two-hour season finale of The Sing-Off attracted 8.51 million viewers and a 2.7/7 among adults 18-49. But compared to last week, the singing competition show dipped by 11 percent in total viewers and 18 percent in adults 18-49 but in comparison with a year ago, The Sing-Off climbed by 17 percent in total viewers and adults 18-49.
Following The Sing-Off were the preview special of Perfect Couples (3.80 million viewers; A18-49: 1.4/4) which couldn’t benefit from its strong lead-in support, and a repeat of The Office (2.22 million viewers; A18-49: 0.9/3).

Hawaii Five-0 producer Peter Lenkov has revealed that Chin Ho will find redemption in a future episode. The former police officer (played by Daniel Dae Kim) was forced to resign after being falsely accused of corruption. "There's a resolution to Chin Ho's back-story, in terms of losing his badge in the police department," Lenkov told E! Online. "There's a real resolution to that [and] redemption for him. It plays off how you first meet him, and he comes a complete 180 [degrees] by the end of the season." The showrunner also admitted that character development sometimes "falls to the wayside" (more) »

Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 20, 2010
The finale of "The Sing-Off" put up decent but not stellar ratings Monday -- it was down from last Monday's show and dipped in its second and third half-hours before rising a little when the winner was announced. The lead-in did next to nothing for NBC's preview of its new comedy "Perfect Couples," which put up weak numbers at 10 p.m.
Fox's "Million Dollar Money Drop," meanwhile, debuted to middling numbers, pretty much on par with what "Lie to Me" has been doing on Mondays this fall.
CBS ended up on top for the night with 7.4 million viewers and a 4.7 rating/8 share in households. NBC (6.7 million, 4.0/6) came in second. ABC (5.85 million, 3.8/6) stands in third for now, but its numbers are inflated some because affiliates in Chicago and Minneapolis aired Espn's "Monday Night Football" coverage. Fox took fourth with 5.3 million viewers and a 3.2/5, while The »
