Years ago at the Ledger, I did an occasional feature called "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words" where, in lieu of writing a review of some terrible show or TV-movie, I would simply select a publicity still that in some way captured its terribleness, thus allowing me to devote my time to writing about something better. With NBC's new hospital drama "The Night Shift" (it premieres tonight at 10), I was sorely tempted to revive that tradition because... well, look at that picture attached to this review. That is perhaps the single most terrible publicity photo I have ever seen for a television show. Worse than anything associated with "The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer," worse than the "girls club" image that made its stars look like they were appearing on the cover of a pornographic VHS tape. It's hilarious because most of the actors were not only clearly Photoshopped »
