Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Doctor Who I took an instant dislike to the new Doctor Who. But then I always take an instant dislike to every new Doctor, and I always come around. It didn't take me long to learn to like the frighteningly young and amazingly intelligent 11th Doctor. The current season of Doctor Who is the smartest show on television. And, let's face it, not everybody is smart, so you may want to watch it under the influence of powerful drugs. Single malt scotch is my personal drug of choice.

Most of the 13 million people who watched the ending of Lost either loved it or loathed it. Me? I'm deeply conflicted. I liked it. But I would have liked it better if it had ended shortly after the birth of Aaron in imaginary time. The DVD will have an after-the-ending ending.

Doctor Who Season Five finale

Next month: Eureka and Warehouse 13 return to SyFy on July 9 and a crossover is in the works.

As previously announced, Fringe will be back in the Fall. Smallville and Supernatural will return. (It takes a lot fewer viewers to keep a CW series on the air.) Season Ten will be Smallville's last. They better show Clark in the red and blue suit (which we got a glimpse of this season), that's all I've got to say. V and Stargate Universe have been renewed. FlashForward has been cancelled. Heroes has been cancelled (but they may wind up the plot in a made-for-tv movie). New superhero series next Fall: The Cape and No Ordinary Family. Also coming in the Fall, a dinosaur series produced by Steven Spielberg, Terra Nova. I'm deeply dubious. When George Lucas or Steven Spielberg try to do television, as Rocky said to Bullwinkle, that never works.
