The first full wave of official cancellations from the major networks are in, and probably the two biggest disappointments are both from NBC. The Michael J. Fox Show and Dracula, each having received some serious hype, are gone. ABC’s Betrayal is a mild surprise. There will be more. This is just the initial casualty list. […]

And now, the top 10. A drum roll, please …. 10. American Horror Story: Coven: Wow. Simply wow. Year two of American Horror Story resembled The Walking Dead meets The Twilight Zone. The show faded a bit in the final episodes or it had a shot for a final top five spot. Jessica Lange is […]
