Watch this (week of May 12)

The must-see event of the week: “The Office” wraps up after nine seasons with a retrospective and supersized episode.  Here are some other highlights for the week: SUNDAY A winner will be picked on “Survivor: Caramoan – Fans vs.  Favorites” (8 p.m., CBS).

Watch this (week of March 31)

SUNDAY It’s back! As “Game of Thrones” (9 p.m., HBO) kicks off its third season, Daenerys continues her quest for a ship, and Jon Snow finally meets the legendary Mance Ryder. But my favorite part of the show: Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. If you’re a fan of “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC), you might want to clear some space on your DVR. The singing competition airs repeats of last week’s fourth-season premiere tonight, with new episodes at 8… Read More »

This season’s first casualty was the CW’s legal dramedy “Made in Jersey,” which was canceled after just two episodes. Here’s a look at how some of the other new shows are doing. “Revolution,” (10 p.m. Monday, NBC) Should you watch? This show takes place 15 years after a big blackout left the world in the dark. Interesting premise, sometimes shaky execution. And some of the characters’ actions can be a little infuriating. Last week, for example, when the group attempted… Read More »

New fall TV shows

For the next few weeks, the networks will try to suck you in with all those bright and shiny new shows… and then about a month after that, they’ll start being quietly canceled. Well, not all of them, of course. Which ones are you going to watch? I’m most interested in “Last Resort,” “Nashville,” “Ben and Kate,” “Animal Practice” and “Revolution.” Then again, I’m also kinda intrigued by “The New Normal,” “Elementary” and “666 Park Avenue.” What can I say…… Read More »
