T-Meter Title | Year
39% Undercovers: Season 1 (TV, 2010) J.J. Abrams' "Undercovers" is a woebegone spy drama with nary a hint of intelligence. Call it "The Quantum of Stupor." - Boston Herald EDIT

18% Perfect Couples: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) [Vance and Amy] are the most fun on a show that usually isn't. - Boston Herald EDIT

81% Lone Star: Season 1 (TV, 2010) "Lone Star," created and written by Kyle Killen, centers on a con man who lives a double life - with two beautiful women - and is so full of plot holes you could drive a motorcade through it with a parade of elephants behind. - Boston Herald EDIT

39% My Generation: Season 1 (TV, 2010) One of the oddest and least engaging dramas of the fall. - Boston Herald EDIT

36% Neighbors From Hell: Season 1 (TV, 2010) Sartre wrote hell is other people. Sometimes it's also TBS TV shows. - Boston Herald EDIT

36% The Goode Family: Season 1 (TV, 2009) The company finally has produced a decent show. Let's see how long it lasts. - Boston Herald EDIT

No Score Yet Secrets of the Dead: Season 8 (TV, 2000) "Doping for Gold" reminds viewers that the quest for victory at all costs often comes at a price few can afford. - Boston Herald EDIT

80% Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale (TV, 2005-2007) The ending feels forced and unearned. It's as if Gervais felt he had to soften the blow for his most devoted fans. It doesn't work. - Boston Herald EDIT

20% The Bill Engvall Show: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2009) This is one shrink who could use an intervention. - Boston Herald EDIT

39% Notes From the Underbelly: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2008) Of the cast, Westfeldt is likable and possesses great timing, but most of the comedy here is stillborn. By obsessing about the minutiae of pregnancy, "Underbelly" is of interest to only a few. "The Wonder Years," this ain't. - Boston Herald EDIT

D- 69% Easy Money: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2009) You might as well just watch an infomercial. You'd get more entertainment out of one. - Boston Herald EDIT

30% Unhitched: Season 1 (TV, 2008) In that spirit, let me add my hope that "Unhitched" turns out to be a one-night stand for [Rashida] Jones. She deserves better. - Boston Herald EDIT

96% White Collar: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2014) While USA Network deserves credit for introducing a crime drama that doesn't revolve around forensics, White Collar is forgettable. - Boston Herald EDIT

12% The Academy Awards: 83rd Oscars (TV, 1978) The kids aren't all right. - Boston Herald EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2019
B- 76% Army Wives: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2014) The producers of Army Wives seem determined to deliver a conscientious depiction of life for military families. They need to remember they aren't making a documentary. - Boston Herald EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
86% Breaking Bad: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2013) Creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan has crafted a show that veers into black comedy over the course of the first three episodes, one that is bloody, unpleasant and tedious. - Boston Herald EDIT

35% Eastwick: Season 1 (TV, 2009) There's not a lot of magic in ABC's Eastwick. - Boston Herald EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2019
No Score Yet October Road: Season 2 (TV, 2007-2008) Almost everybody is back where they were last year. Because the first season wasn't tedious enough, let's just repeat it. - Boston Herald EDIT

44% Stylista: Season 1 (TV, 2008) Fans of Project Runway seeking a fashion fix will be disappointed with the cut of this show. Instead of frocks, the cast is judged on their page layouts. It may be appropriate for their would-be careers, but it makes for tedious TV. - Boston Herald EDIT

64% Chocolate News: Season 1 (TV, 2008) Perhaps Grier can reign in his mouth for basic cable. With all the bleeps, a few of the jokes cannot even be deciphered. That's a shame because there's genuinely funny satire here. - Boston Herald EDIT

87% In Treatment: Season 3 (TV, 2008-2010) Watching [Gabriel] Byrne's sullen shrink match wits with [Amy] Ryan's cool therapist is the best reason to book an appointment with In Treatment. - Boston Herald EDIT

67% Punk'd (2003): Season 9 (TV, 2003-2012) Punk'd seems to have a budget to rival a commercial network show, and the twist of rotating hosts whips up a new level of paranoia. Now the famous and clueless can't even trust each other. - Boston Herald EDIT

64% Miss Guided: Season 1 (TV, 2008) Somebody snoozed through creative writing class. - Boston Herald EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2019
21% Sit Down, Shut Up: Season 1 (TV, 2009) Disparate stories cross in amusing, unexpected ways. Somebody's clearly thinking. - Boston Herald EDIT

60% Ruby and the Rockits: Season 1 (TV, 2009) Ruby's new family doesn't seem complete. - Boston Herald EDIT

61% The Philanthropist: Season 1 (TV, 2009) There might have been a good TV show in here, if someone had properly developed it. Don't give up your time to "The Philanthropist." - Boston Herald EDIT

5% Surviving Suburbia: Season 1 (TV, 0-2009) The sitcom's only distinguishing trait is an obnoxiously sweetened laugh track. ABC should foreclose on this property. - Boston Herald EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2019
19% Lipstick Jungle: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2009) This series will be as polarizing as the original "Sex." Some women will adore it; many men will flee the room, fearing estrogen poisoning. In that regard, "Lipstick Jungle" truly is a worthy successor to "Sex and the City." - Boston Herald EDIT

46% Dirt: Season 2 (TV, 2007-2008) Dirt wants to be both a sendup and an indictment of celebrity journalism. It's neither. It hits its targets with a Nerf bat. - Boston Herald EDIT

83% Hawaii Five-0: Season 1 (TV, 2010) The remake of "Hawaii Five-0" is the best kind of throwback -- to the buddy cop films of the 1980s. Think "Lethal Weapon" with a tropical twist. - Boston Herald EDIT

80% The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 14 (TV, 1999-2015) CNBC's Jim Cramer faced off against Comedy Central's Jon Stewart... It was an astounding half-hour, featuring more trenchant talk of the financial crisis and the responsibility of the networks than you'd find on any news channel. - Boston Herald EDIT

78% The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Season 15 (TV, 1999-2015) There were few laughs but plenty of tough questions when President Barack Obama dropped by... The half-hour confirmed Stewart's presence as one of the most intelligent pundits on cable. - Boston Herald EDIT
