TWoP 10: Characters Whose Absence Would Instantly Improve Their Shows

Sometimes less is more and there's addition by subtraction. At least, in the case of some of our favorite shows, that is definitely true. We've identified TV's weakest links this season and have determined that their removal would guarantee an immediate uptick in the entertainment level of their respective shows. Here are the major characters that most need to go, for everyone's sake:

TWoP 10: Best Rivalries on Scripted TV

This weekend during the Super Bowl, the longstanding rivalry between the Giants and the Patriots will come to a head. Again. While we're not really huge fans of the actual sporting event, we do appreciate a good showdown. So, in honor of the big game, we've ranked our favorite rivals (not to be confused with heroes and villains) on scripted TV this season.

TWoP 10: Characters We'd Like to Regift (the 2011 Edition)

There are a lot of terrible shows out there who have characters that are too good for their shows. Or good shows who just have too many characters to service. So as has become our annual tradition (2010, 2009, 2008), we've found shows where these people would be far better utilized.

TWoP 10: Lessons of the Fall 2011 Season

We already receive our most important life lessons from television, but we're hoping producers, studios and networks themselves learn from the successes and failures of this fall. Here are our big takeaways from the first half of the 2011-12 season:

TWoP 10: TV Families We Wouldn't Want to Join

Is your family driving you crazy this holiday season? In a time of high stress, it's important to take a moment and reflect on that fact that you're not stuck in one of the many horrible families from the current world of scripted TV. We're not talking about pain-in-the-butt relatives like those on Modern Family or Parenthood -- at least those crazies mean well. The following clans, on the other hand, make dysfunction seem luxurious -- just imagine what it would be like to call these characters your kin.

TWoP 10: TV Things We're Thankful For This Season

We're supposed to take time this week to reflect on the things in life that we're truly grateful for, and for us, not surprisingly, that includes plenty related to television. Here's what's made us the happiest this season:

TWoP 10: Shows That Should Have Holiday Episodes (But Won't)

Sitcoms get to have all the fun during the holidays, leaving dramas out in the cold when it comes to warm and fuzzy (and sometimes bloody) winter episodes. There are a handful of scripted series we'd love to see celebrate the season with themed episodes, and we're so convinced of their potential that we've even come up with suggested plotlines for them. You can thank us after New Year's.

TWoP 10: TV Couples We Just Don't Buy

The sweeping fairytale romance between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries officially ended last Monday, and we're heartbroken because it seemed like they were in it for the long haul. We're kidding, of course -- like most sane onlookers, we assumed the two were in a sham relationship orchestrated to generate media coverage and further her fame. But as cacophonous as the frenzy over their nuptials (and now split) was, we thought we could at least escape it by losing ourselves in our favorite scripted shows -- except for the fact that TV is filled with its share of equally unbelievable pairings. Here are the ones we really can't believe in:
