2011: A Year In Television

As I expressed in my recap of 2011 in music, I think listing art is a somewhat silly exercise. Still, as someone who started this blog to talk about television, I felt like I should share my thoughts on this year in TV.

Last year, I lamented the incredibly weak crop of fall pilots and the continuing erosion of broadcast ratings. Neither of those problems were really solved in 2011, though ratings seem to have stabilized for the time being. But, even with a less than stellar crop of new series on the network side, there were a handful of new treasures and even more returning favorites stepping up their game.

If all goes according to plan, I should have a piece up early next week praising individual performances and shows that missed my Top 10, but I wanted to make sure to get my list of this year’s best up before the ball dropped. So, without further ado, I give you my Top 10 TV Shows of 2011. Read more of this post

TV’s Top Beauties in 2010

Last week, I finally had the time to sift though some of links I had bookmarked from late November and early December. One of these links was Buddy TV’s slideshow of the sexiest women on TV. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I had numerous issues with their list. So, I took it upon myself to create a new list.

I was tempted to include some of the year’s memorable guest-stars like Rachel Bilson on How I Met Your Mother, but ultimately I decided to include recurring guest-stars and main cast members only. Though, I did include a couple reality stars who’ve earned a special place in my heart with their looks and charm.

Check out my list below and feel free to drop a comment my way.
