T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet You're the One: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) We think we've seen everything in the way of sitcoms about mismatched but romantic couples and culture-clashing in-laws. Then along comes this new one to prove that an old concept can yield fresh stupidity. - People Magazine EDIT

No Score Yet Sins of the City: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) Some sins, some virtues, but arresting. - People Magazine EDIT

D+ No Score Yet Ask Harriet: Season 1 (TV, 1998) The appeal of this show is its energetic crudity, its unwavering belief that there's nothing funnier than a macho male going to the gynecologist. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2019
50% For Your Love: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2002) Based on the two episodes we've seen, none of these characters qualify as "The Funny People." The dialogue does not sparkle, and the situations are straight out of Sitcom 101. - People Magazine EDIT

No Score Yet Welcome to Paradox: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) To launch a science-fiction anthology series is to dare comparisons with The Twilight Zone. Happily, Welcome to Paradox is not unworthy to be mentioned in the same sentence as Rod Serling's classic show. - People Magazine EDIT

B- 44% The Naked Truth: Season 2 (TV, 1995-1998) Though the material isn't yet worthy of the star, it's clear that NBC sees in Leoni a Lombardian gift for being simultaneously sexy and ridiculous. - People Magazine EDIT

70% Linc's: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2000) Played with confidence by Steven Williams, Line commands attention even when the show seems undecided whether to go for intelligent commentary or to settle for pungent repartee. - People Magazine EDIT

6% Wasteland: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) The cast is attractive, and the characters are convincing in their confusion. But already I wish they'd quit overanalyzing their feelings and make some new acquaintances. - People Magazine EDIT

D+ No Score Yet Head over Heels: Season 1 (TV, 0-1997) Set at a Miami Beach dating service supposedly operated and patronized by adults, it's hopelessly hooked on cheap sex jokes that would go over big in junior high. - People Magazine EDIT

92% Buddy Faro: Season 1 (TV, 1998) If Buddy Faro maintains the entertainment level established in its premiere, it will be well nigh unmissable. - People Magazine EDIT

45% Time of Your Life: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) Weep profusely, smile winningly: That's Sarah's pattern. Hewitt fans figure to be there for her. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2019
8% Conrad Bloom: Season 1 (TV, 1998) Call it Conrad in the City. Call it Suddenly Conrad. Conrad Bad would be unfair; Conrad Bland would not. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2019
47% Judging Amy: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2005) The main problem is Amy's fluctuating competency level... Come on, get a grip on that gavel. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2019
50% Harsh Realm: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) I don't mind a show that makes me tense and depressed, but I'd rather do my suffering in the service of actual reality. - People Magazine EDIT

54% Norm: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) Why do I like Macdonald on this new sitcom? Maybe he comes across better when he's part of a team instead of smirking solo. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
93% Action: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) Don't know if this extremely edgy material will wear well, but I'm up for more Action. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2019
B+ No Score Yet Cracker: Season 1 (TV, 1997-1999) The protagonist remains as difficult and dissipated as he is brilliant. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
D No Score Yet Pauly: Season 1 (TV, 0-1997) It is neither necessary nor desirable to quote punch lines from this new sitcom. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
46% Jesse: Season 1 (TV, 1998-2000) Jesse desperately needs to relax; otherwise, she's normal -- so normal that the supporting cast must bear much of the comedy load. And therein lies a problem. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2019
A 60% Lateline: Season 1 (TV, 0-1999) Lateline draws plenty of laughs from the usual on-the-job situations, but the series' greatest potential lies in the synergy between office politics and Washington politics. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2019
No Score Yet Providence: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2002) The series is too fond of flaunting its eccentricity, too short on authentic Providence atmosphere (despite some location filming) and too eager to remind us that the title also refers to God's will. - People Magazine EDIT

C+ 25% Significant Others: Season 1 (TV, 1998) With all its tiresome talk about facing adulthood and fearing commitment, the show is strangely true to life. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2019
50% The Martin Short Show: Season 1 (TV, 0-1994) He's not as good at being a host as he is at being a guest, but this month-old talk-variety venture is proving to be fairly decent, I must say. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2019
8% Ladies Man: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) The comedy tends to be forced and obvious, but a few flavorful lines are granted two deserving veterans: Betty White (The Golden Girls, etc.) as Molina's verbally uninhibited mother and Stephen Root (NewsRadio) as his ribald buddy. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2019
20% Odd Man Out: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) When the hormonal hilarity lets up, at least the obligatory heart-to-heart talks don't get too drippy. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2019
46% It's like, You Know...: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) There are some laughs here, but too often even the eccentricity seems formulaic. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2019
No Score Yet Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist: Season 4 (TV, 1995-1999) The richest humor comes from the relationship between Dr. Katz and his ne'er-do-well son Ben, who enjoys unlimited use of the shrink's living-room couch at no hourly fee. - People Magazine EDIT

40% Arli$$: Season 5 (TV, 1996-2002) To put this in the appropriate jock-world parlance, Arli$$ is like a high draft choice who becomes an established starter but never fulfills his superstar potential. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2019
B- 80% Arli$$: Season 2 (TV, 1996-2002) We can always count on a major-league effort from the key player, Robert Wuhl, who somehow makes us root for his character... But the show as a whole lacks the consistency of a championship series. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2019
C 44% Jenny: Season 1 (TV, 1997-1998) Those with limited enthusiasm for McCarthy's wrinkle-nose-and-grin style of comedy may harbor the hope that [George] Hamilton's character will return-from the grave, like one of those nine-lived types on the daytime soaps. - People Magazine EDIT

C+ 50% Roar: Season 1 (TV, 1997) It features clangorous combat scenes in which warriors emit fierce, throaty sounds while having at one another with swords, spears and fists. Your only defense: turn down the volume. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2019
C 17% 413 Hope St.: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) In light of the title, we'd like to be more optimistic about this gritty, well-intentioned show set at a teencrisis center in New York City. But in the Sept. 11 premiere, even the comic relief is overdone. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2019
C 7% The Tony Danza Show: Season 1 (TV, 1997-1998) Danza's household headaches are not especially funny. How many times will the show remind us that his younger daughter is a hypochondriac and that his ever-present doorman has the hots for his assistant? - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2019
C+ 33% Prey: Season 1 (TV, 1998) The first episode goes too heavy on creepy atmosphere, and some of the dialogue must be heard to be disbelieved. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
C+ No Score Yet Soul Man: Season 2 (TV, 1997-1998) Our main reason for tuning in is to watch Aykroyd take a light workout -- and remember him at the top of his game. - People Magazine EDIT

A 57% Gun: Season 1 (TV, 1997) Believe the hype. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
35% Brimstone: Season 1 (TV, 1998-1999) The premise of this new series would not seem to promise a barrel of laughs... Surprisingly, though, the drama works best when it chooses not to take itself seriously. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2019
B+ 63% Brooklyn South: Season 1 (TV, 1997-1998) The new cop show from executive producer Steven Bochco gets off to a stunning start... That said, there are a few misdemeanors. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2019
No Score Yet Stark Raving Mad: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) This sitcom is not off to a sidesplitting start. But its talented costars give hope of improvement, and its enviable time slot offers some expectation of survival. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2019
75% More Tales Of The City: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) The '70s San Franciscans of the miniseries muddle through complications and coincidences whose low probability and slow development are undeniably reminiscent of daytime soap opera. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2019
No Score Yet Once and Again: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2002) The honest performances and perceptive writing will have you feeling freshly empathetic. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2019
No Score Yet Once and Again: Season 2 (TV, 1999-2002) I'm still impressed by the drama's respect for the complexity of life. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2019
100% Veronica's Closet: Season 1 (TV, 1997-2000) The opener mostly succeeds in maintaining a tone that's more racy-adult than naughty-juvenile. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2019
D- No Score Yet Police Academy: The Series: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) What are a few misdemeanors compared with the felonious stupidity of this "action-comedy" series? - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
60% The PJs: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) The PJs can be plenty funny when it isn't crude and offensive-and even when it is. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
No Score Yet Bear in the Big Blue House: Season 2 (TV, 0-2006) The puppetry is enormously clever, the production design is practically perfect, the songs are catchy and not syrupy, and the day's lesson is subtly reinforced in Bear's concluding talk with Luna, the womanly moon. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
No Score Yet Sabrina, the Animated Series: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2000) Bottom Line: Double spell on the kid crowd. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted May 30, 2019
No Score Yet The Parkers: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2004) The comedy tends to be awfully broad, but The Parkers has its pluses. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2019
No Score Yet The Magnificent Seven: Season 2 (TV, 1998-2000) When subplots proliferate, you may wish the Seven would shrink to a more manageable Two or Three. - People Magazine EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2019
No Score Yet Strong Medicine: Season 1 (TV, 2000-2006) The writing grows preachy but the story line is compelling nonetheless. - People Magazine EDIT
