Season 6, Episode 10 – Veep’s season six finale is a hilarious flashback-fueled journey through Selina’s political past. She’s consistently chosen politics over family/relationships and with an upcoming presidential run (yes, again), it looks like that won’t be changing for a while.

Season 1, Episode 9-10 – It’s time to say goodbye to Great News, but not forever—the show will be returning in the fall. These last two episodes prove that NBC was absolutely right to renew it, as they prove that it can sustain a story throughout several episodes.
Season 1, Episode 23 – Bull ends its first season with an uneven finale that hits essentially the same story beats as last week. Bull works with JP, has ethical objections to her client choice, but helps, eventually winning—Bull has gone the whole season without losing a case.
Season 1, Episode 7-8 – Great News delivers its funniest two episodes of the season, with “The Red Door” being a near perfect half hour of comedy ending with some of the show’s biggest laughs yet. This promising show seems to have finally hit its stride.
Season 1, Episode 21 – Bull introduces a new character, high-powered lawyer JP Nunnerly (Eliza Dushku), as the team works to clear Benny of the charges filed against him by the District Attorney’s Office. It’s an episode filled with ridiculous dialogue and over-the-top acting.
Season 1, Episode 5-6 – Great News continues to be enjoyable, especially for a network comedy, but it’s over halfway through the season and it hasn’t completely found its footing yet. The ensemble gets a chance to shine this week, but Katie remains the weakest link.
Season 1, Episode 13 – In its first season, Superior Donuts has revealed itself to be a lazy show relying on cheap sentimentality, with an unwillingness to actually engage with any of the issues it brings up. Why should the finale be any different?
Season 1, Episode 3-4 – Chuck continues to be the MVP of Great News, as the show delivers two amusing, but uneven episodes. Katie’s character needs some improvement, but the show’s capable of absurdly hilarious moments.
Season 6, Episode 3 – Veep delivers its best episode of the season so far, as the majority of the cast is reunited when Selina goes to Georgia (the country, not the state) to supervise an election. Also featured this episode: the return of her Finnish nemesis Minna.
Season 3, Episode 21-22 – Black-ish aired two episodes this week, both centering on family. Bow’s sister Santa Monica (Rashida Jones) visits in the first, and Black-ish sends Zoey off to college with a clip show in the second.
Season 1, Episode 1-2 – Great News premiered this week with a promising two episodes. While the 30 Rock comparisons are inevitable, as the shows share an executive producer (Tina Fey), writer (creator Tracey Wigfield), and a similar setting, Great News is strong enough to stand on its own.
Season 1, Episode 19 – Bull once again relies on a ridiculous last minute twist with minimal explanation to solve a case, but to the show’s credit, it’s one of its most ridiculous twists yet. Bull helps an infamous criminal defense attorney after he’s accused of killing his fiancé.
Season 1, Episode 11 – This week was one of the better episodes of Superior Donuts. It wasn’t ambitious or hilarious, but it was entertaining. Franco takes a job as Fawz’s assistant in order to make some extra cash.
Season 6, Episode 1 – Veep returns for its sixth season with a place-setting episode focused on catching up with the characters and establishing the new status quo. It’s not the funniest episode the show’s done, but it sets up what will be an interesting season.
Season 2, Episode 13 – The Path’s season finale disappoints, as the main characters are back in essentially the same places they were at the beginning of the season. Although the show was renewed today, there doesn’t seem to be enough story left for another season.
