It’s the time for year-end lists. And for the fourth time, HitFix.com has surveyed 53 TV critics on their choices for the Top 10 overall and new TV series of 2015... This is an increasingly vexing task, given the wealth of drama and comedy series on broadcast, cable and streaming services...

Jessica Jones is endowed with super strength and the ability to fly but is very much out of uniform and in a funk for her Season One escapades on Netflix...

In 70 years as a television network, NBC has never had a prime-time series with an all-Hispanic cast. That changes on Monday, Dec. 7th, with the “sneak preview” of Eva Longoria’s Telenovela.

It seemed to be a fair assumption that A Very Murray Christmas would find the host grooving and goofing on the holiday season by reprising his smarmy Saturday Night Live lounge singer, Nick Ocean...

He’s bearded, bedraggled, has a firm moral compass and is almost three-and-a-half centuries removed from Mad Men’s times. That’s how Vincent Kartheiser has chosen to divest himself of smarmy, conniving ad man Pete Campbel...

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
