<I>Awake</I>:  Two Realities, One Show, Big Letdown

Awake follows detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) as he copes with a car accident that either killed his wife or his son. See, he's living in two very different realities, one where his son Rex (Dylan Minnette) survived and one where the wife Hannah (Laura Allen) did, and he's not entirely sure which is real, so as he doses off each night, he goes from one world to the next and people in both are convinced that he's crazy and/or dreaming.

TWoP 10: Midseason Shows We're Already Excited About

Fall season is underway, and maybe it's just us, but we're already sick of seeing ads for these shows and talking about these pilots. Especially since almost all of the pilots we did see that really knocked our socks off aren't airing until midseason. We are not patient people, so we're looking ahead at the winter to the shows that have piqued our interest. Some we haven't seen, but on paper they've got a lot of potential and could be the cure for our forthcoming winter doldrums.

NBC's 2011 Upfront Presentation: We're Trying, We're Really, Really Trying

So this network upfront actually broke some news, albeit unsurprising news that no one really cared about, but news nonetheless. Towards the end of the very lengthy two hour presentation, Donald Trump came out to announce that he was going to continue making money on The Celebrity Apprentice and not take a run at the presidency. He made it sound like he was doing us a favor, but I cover entertainment television, so having him stick around on reality TV isn't really helping me at all.

Aside from that, the rest of the presentation was fairly typical, and filled with all the NBC executives reminding us as frequently as possible that The Voice is a big success. I tried keeping count of how often they mentioned the show's name, but they worked it in so seamlessly to nearly every segment that it was almost impossible. And just when I thought they couldn't mention it one more time, they had Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo come out at the end of the presentation to sing. Fortunately, I was already heading out the door at that point.
