September 24th, 2014 3:05pm EDT
The Middle
“The Middle” is one of the most charming, underappreciated sitcoms on television today. It has attracted a similarly charming, often unsung cadre of guest stars. With the show heading into its sixth season tonight, here is a look at the best of that cadre.

1. Norm MacDonald - Norm MacDonald is a relatively successful entertainer who strikes me as someone who lives a fairly well-adjusted life. So it is amusing that as Uncle Rusty, he is basically playing himself, even though Rusty is a bit of a drifter. He excels in the sort of small-time scheme-pulling persona that Norm is mischievo...

10 Ways to Fix 'New Girl's' Winston Bishop Problem

September 16th, 2014 2:30pm EDT
New Girl
“New Girl” is a show that I prize for its characterization. For example, Jess Day is much more complicated than the “adorkable” stereotype that Zooey Deschanel is often associated with, and Nick Miller is a bit of a slacker, but mainly because his ambitions do not fit the typical societal definition of success. So it is weird to say that there is a fundamental problem with one of the main characters, especially considering that that character – Winston Bishop – actually is as well-defined as the rest of the main cast. But for whatever reason, his storylines often feel disconnected from t...

Prediction: Law & Order: SVU’s Olivia Benson Will Be One Badass
A baby can change your life – or in the case of ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ it can breath new life into a series that is entering its sixteenth season.

Used to be, the show’s biggest difference from year to year was the hair color and cut of “Olivia Benson” (Mariska Hargitay). But on September 24th, the new acting commander will be pulling double duty as the court-appointed custodial guardian of “Noah Porter,” the baby who was orphaned at the end of last season.
