  1. Should You Watch? FX's New Comedies, ‘Married’ a...

    Andy Greenwald

    Tonight begining at 10 p.m., FX premieres two new sitcoms: Married and You're the Worst. Both are vulgar, openly contemptuous of romance, and feature casual cocaine use. But enough about the good parts. Should you, the harried consumer, tune in?...

    Andy Greenwald

    "A good story always trumps the truth," says one scheming character to another early in the second episode of The Strain. It's a sentiment worth writing down and saving. The icky FX vampire-virus series, which premieres Sunday night at...

  3. ‘Tyrant’ Preview: FX Exports Middling Drama to the Mi...

    Andy Greenwald

    Tyrant, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m. ET on FX, has a backstory almost as dramatic as its premise. The idea for relocating The Godfather to an authoritarian Middle Eastern state was initially dreamed up by Gideon Raff, creator of the original, I...

  4. Summer TV Preview!

    Andy Greenwald

    Once the dumping ground for series that were unwatched, unwanted, or otherwise Canadian, the summer is now prime time for serious television. (Or, as they call it at the USA Network, with its remarkably resilient lineup of entertaining trifles, &quot...

    Andy Greenwald

    Most television pilots are about putting things together. By contrast, the key scene in the premiere of Halt and Catch Fire (airing Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET on AMC) concerns taking something apart. Slickster visionary Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace) and e...

  6. Pilot Season Scouting Report

    Andy Greenwald

    Next week, the four broadcast networks will descend on New York City for the upfronts, a yearly tradition in which ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox present their upcoming shows to an audience of skeptical ad buyers and an even more skeptical general public. Fr...

    Andy Greenwald

    The best thing about Louis C.K.'s stand-up is its precision. Every year, with the focus and dedication of a Swiss watchmaker or a constant masturbator, he hits the road to workshop jokes, riffs, and stories in front of an unforgiving (though inc...

    Andy Greenwald

    For a long time The Simpsons was the fastest show on television. A combination of highly caffeinated, Harvard-educated show-offs in the writers' room and the complete creative freedom afforded by animation transformed what was originally intended to ...

    Andy Greenwald

    What I liked best about Girls in the beginning wasn't the subject matter or the setting, it wasn't the horror of its comedy or the humor of its drama. And it certainly wasn't the opportunity to lose myself in the dense, terrifying forest of think pie...

    Andy Greenwald

    There was nothing small about the miniseries of the '70s and '80s. They were opulent, overstuffed affairs that dared to tackle the supersize topics unlimited series wouldn't touch, like world wars and priest flirtation. A strange combination of soari...

  11. Midseason TV Preview: January Is the New Fall

    Andy Greenwald

    For shivering bootblacks in Westeros or frustrated TV fans here on Earth, the phrase "winter is coming" was once equally terrifying. One promised an interminable tundra of life-freezing ice; the other the same thing but with reruns. (Your mileage may...

    Andy Greenwald

    All long-running TV shows break bad eventually. It's the nature of the beast: Fuel for the relentless story engine inevitably runs dry, complacency sets in, and the familiarity that was once so appealing slowly curdles into contempt. If you kick away...

    Andy Greenwald

    "The highbrow AMC" may seem like a strange identity for a cable network looking to make a splash. But for Sundance Channel it makes sense. The unprecedented ratings success of The Walking Dead has gobbled up everything in its wake, leaving little roo...

    It took me a few episodes to acclimate to Showtime's new Masters of Sex, premiering this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (For Breaking Bad fans, this is about the time you'll be prostrate on the floor, covered in tears and the accumulated dust of crushed Xa...

    This Sunday night on CBS, the 65th-annual Emmy Awards will celebrate the year in television excellence. Like most meth-addled Americans, I won't be watching — at least not live. Instead, I'll be tuning in to AMC to watch some truly excellent te...
