  1. New Study Says Binge-Watching TV Might Kill You, No Matter How Healthy You Are

    First the radio star...now us?

    Guys, I have some bad news. Are you ready? You might want to sit down, I'm not sure your ticker can handle the shock: according to a majorly depressing new study, our bodies are so profoundly impacted by TV-viewing that watching more than one hour a day is highly likely to have serious health consequences.

  5. Are TV Narratives Getting More Complex Because of Technology?

    More than anything else, television is America's greatest art form.

    Back in the day before Hulu, Netflix, DVDs, and everything else we used to watch TV instead of actual televisions and cable boxes nowadays, media executives weren't very keen on the idea of serialized narratives in their shows. So does all this changing technology explain why we're getting so much more complicated content to watch?

  6. WWE’s $10 Streaming Television Network Is Exactly What We Want from Other Networks, Minus the Wrestling

    Unless they want to put some robots or aliens in the ring. We'd probably watch that.

    A lot of people are probably going to want to (pretend to) punch me in the face for saying this, but professional wrestling—well, the WWE kind, anyway—is really silly. That's why we're incredibly surprised to find ourselves so excited about WWE's streaming television network, because it's exactly what we'd like to see for TV's future.

  7. Bravo Announces Plans to Create TV Show About People Watching Other TV Shows

    Yet another of Isaac Asimov's dystopic visions of the future COME TO LIFE.

  8. My Hate Watch Begins: On Angel, Hate-Watching, and the Irresistible Lure of Terrible Television

    Why am I so compelled to watch this terrible show?

    For the last two months, I've been kind of stuck in my house due to a stress fracture. While I'm nursing the broken foot that's kept me from doing a whole host of things I would rather be doing with my summer, I am playing Xbox and watching a lot of Netflix. This has brought me to a rare first in my long TV-watching career: I'm hate-watching my first show, and I kind of love it.

    Set-top boxes don't really work for flatscreens anyway...

  10. Netflix Gets 14 Emmy Nods for House of Cards, Arrested Development, and Hemlock Grove

    If anyone on the planet hadn't gotten the memo that some of the best TV being done today isn't on TV, this should drive that message home.

    Those of you who are up early watching the Emmy nominations roll in this morning -- as well as, y'know, those of you who know where Twitter is -- have no doubt already heard, but it's worth mentioning that Kevin Spacey just landed a well-deserved Emmy nomination for Best Actor for his work in the Netflix original series House of Cards. That will come as no surprise to anyone who watched the excellent political thriller produced by Netflix this year, but considering it's the first Emmy nomination for a show that was never actually on TV, it's a noteworthy, if not entirely unexpected, achievement. That it's one of a dozen Emmy nominations for original content on the streaming service says a good deal more.
