Here's who'll win Emmys for guest actor/actress (hint: never bet against Betty White)

These guest categories are always fun races, since they’re loaded with big names who made striking impressions in sometimes small roles. Some races this year are locks; others could result in upsets. I think I’ve figured out who’ll win. Tell me if you agree.

Christine Baranski (The Big Bang Theory)
Kathryn Joosten (Desperate Housewives)
Kristin Chenoweth (Glee)
Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live)
Elaine Stritch (30 Rock)
Jane Lynch (Two and a Half Men)
Betty White (Saturday Night Live)

Will win Betty White. Not only READ FULL STORY

Place your bets on 2010 Emmy winners now: Lead and supporting actor in a drama

Who’ll win the Emmys on Aug. 29? I have some theories and predictions. Earlier this week, my READ FULL STORY

Were these the best Emmy nominations for which we could have hoped? Yes. Here's why.

Emmy nominations: Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton — yay! Tony Shalhoub and Toni Collette — I’d have preferred new jack swingers Toni! Tony! Tone!

Yes, it’s that time to grouse about some of the shows that were neglected inĀ  major categories (Fringe, Sons of Anarchy, Justified) and praise the selection of worthies that were recognized (Friday Night Lights, The Good Wife).

The thing is, this was just about the best set of Emmy nominations we could expect, a mix of READ FULL STORY

Best TV of 2010: My mid-year Top 10 list

We’re half-way through the year; time to stop and take stock of the TV year thus far. Here is my mid-year Top 10, selected from shows airing during the period between January and July 2010. I’ve also added a few notes at the end about some other notable TV events. Happy holiday weekend to you.

'Fringe' season finale recap: 'Over There, Part 2,' a kiss, a 'death,' and the 'monsters in our skin'

In the alternate universe, Madison Square Garden is the quarantined site of a worm-hole with people frozen since 1999 in containment-amber; Liberty Island doesn’t just have a bronze version of the Statue of Liberty — it’s also the headquarters for the Department of Defense. (Leave it to patriotic politicians to militarize a symbol of open welcome.)

And so the season finale of Fringe began, with Peter helicoptering over the island to greet his long-lost father, the Secretary of Defense Walter Bishop. They said all the right things — “I’ve imagined this moment so many times”; “It wasn’t easy, making the choice to come home” — but there was READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' season finale tonight: Don't miss the shock surprise ending

If you thought last week’s first part of the Fringe season finale “Over There” was good, you’ll probably be thrilled and deeply satisfied with tonight’s second, concluding hour. You’ve seen the coming attractions, with such terrific visuals as READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' recap: 'Over There, Part 1' is one great half of a fantastic finale

The first half of the two-part Fringe season finale, “Over There,” hurtled us over there — to the alternate universe, where Peter was following his true father, and where alternative versions of Olivia, Broyles, and even Astrid existed in cleverly different versions of the ones we know.

Over there, Olivia is an auburn-haired, wisecracking, jack-booted member of a Fringe Division that’s overseen by READ FULL STORY

A new, longer look at the 'Fringe' season finale!

Take a verrrry close look at this brand-new, extended Fringe season-finale trailer.

You’ll see that Josh Jackson’s Peter Bishop gets “taken to the other side” (ah, that would actually be his true home, wouldn’t it?). You’ll see alternate-universe versions of READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' recap: 'Northwest Passage,' Violet Sedan Chair, and Walternate revealed

Well, you were right. So many of you Commenters correctly identified who “The Secretary” would prove to be: congrats to all. Waiting until the final moments of the episode to make that reveal didn’t even feel like a tease, because there was so much going on in “Northwest Passage,” a twisty, witty, multi-fake-out but not faked episode of Fringe.

Following the events of “The Man From The Other Side” two weeks ago, Fringe took us to Washington state, where Peter had gone to be moody and where shape-shifter READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' recap: 'Brown Betty,' and Watching the detectives

Fringe has been so good lately that the news that it would program a musical number in keeping with Fox’s theme-week had me ready to be irritated, and parodies of hardboiled detective fiction rarely work well on TV.

So I give Fringe a lot of credit for pulling off this hour so cleverly. The episode title, “Brown Betty,” took its name from READ FULL STORY
