  • Jessell | It's Now Up To The Market To Make 3.0 Work

    With its 3-2 vote yesterday to permit use of ATSC 3.0 on a voluntary basis, the FCC endows broadcasters who adopt the standard unprecedented freedom to determine what businesses they want to be in; what new services they want to provide; and how to go about implementing them. The FCC's hands-off approach also leaves broadcasters to cope with more uncertainty and risk than they are used to. More | Comments (12)

Reviews

  • Hal Boedeker

    A reassuring example of older means getting better, Will & Grace struts back to NBC bolder, brassier and bawdier. Some like it tart, and this frisky frolic delivers. After eight seasons, the beloved sitcom felt faded at its fade-out in 2006. Eleven years later, the revival packs a joyous kick in the first three episodes. Here is an absolutely fabulous return with four irrepressible stars who are at their very best. Will & Grace is no gay dinosaur.

  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Wonderstruck, overstuffed, corny and stirring, Star Trek: Discovery stands tall alongside the best-regarded incarnations of the Trek franchise even as it raids elements from all of them (including the recent J.J. Abrams film series, which Paramount says is set in an alternate timeline that has nothing to do with this one). Though handsomely produced, the show’s imagination seems to have been slightly reined in by commercial mandates — namely, reinvigorating Trek as a TV property and serving as a marquee title that would lure customers to CBS All Access, the network’s subscription-only service.
