After tabulating our TV WORTH WATCHING predictions from both our readers and our writers, two people correctly guessed four out of the six major categories and emerged with bragging rights. One was TVWW reader Nathan. The other was (and don't you forget it, you other 14 writers on this site) yours truly...

The wealth was spread among many deserving Emmy winners in Monday's prime-time NBC telecast. Modern Family, Glee, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Dexter got more than one award. But by far the biggest winner, with five awards in all, was HBO's Temple Grandin. And deservedly so: When it premiered, I praised it as the best telemovie in years...

The 62nd Annual Prime-Time Emmy Awards, with host Jimmy Fallon, will be televised on NBC Sunday night at 8 ET. Until then, it's anybody's guess who will win in the major categories -- so we here at TV WORTH WATCHING thought it would be fun to have anybody guess. We'll start with some of our correspondents, who are fighting for bragging rights. Then we'll open it up to you, for your OWN bragging rights, plus some tacky TV prize to be named later...

Yesterday's post, on why I love BBC America's The Choir and Fox's Glee, gave me the excuse to print a classic vintage column by my old friend and mentor, the late Ray Recchi, on the importance of music education in schools. And it reminded me -- hiding deep within this site is another of my favorite Recchi columns, on which he reviewed... me... and my one and only attempt at doing stand-up at a comedy club...

Wednesday night BBC America presents the latest installment of The Choir, a fabulous show presenting optimistic choirmaster Gareth Malone (above) and his tireless efforts to introduce music, and music education, to British schools devoid of both. This Sunday, Fox's Glee is up for a bunch of Emmy awards, and I'm a sucker for both these shows...

Lots to cover, so let's dive right in, beginning with more relaunch news. Your reaction to our Extreme Makeover (TV WORTH WATCHING as The Swan?) has been warm, thoughtful and encouraging. I expected nothing less, but thanks just the same. And in that same welcoming spirit, please get in the habit of visiting, and commenting on, our new Contributors blog...

Well, I can't begin to tell you how much work is behind us, and how much looms ahead this weekend. But we're close enough for me to announce to you, and dare us here at TV WORTH WATCHING, that we hope to have the long-promised website relaunch up and running by Monday morning...

This week's batch of new releases of TV shows on DVD includes an absurdly entertaining triple helping of great shows, and the range couldn't be more eclectic. Coincidentally, they're all Season Four releases - of NBC/DirecTV's Friday Night Lights, Showtime's Dexter, and the classic Rocky & Bullwinkle adventures...

The addition of "The Big C" to Showtime's lineup (10:30 p.m. ET Monday) brings Laura Linney, a fabulous actress, to a network already boasting several excellent shows in which they star: Edie Falco in "Nurse Jackie", Toni Collette in "The United States of Tara", Mary-Louise Parker in "Weeds". But while Linney belongs in that august company, "The Big C" does not...
